Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Ioniq EV than the BMW M4, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M4 and the Hyundai Ioniq EV in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW M4 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Ioniq EV, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW M4 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW M4 and the Hyundai Ioniq EV have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M4 is much wider than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW M4, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Handling
The BMW M4 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M4 has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Ioniq EV. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M4 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Utility
The BMW M4 has less seating than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, making the Hyundai Ioniq EV the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW M4 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Ioniq EV.
