Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Regal Sportback offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Ioniq EV. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick Regal Sportback and the Hyundai Ioniq EV in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Buick Regal Sportback 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Regal Sportback will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Ioniq EV. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Buick Regal Sportback will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Regal Sportback is much wider than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Buick Regal Sportback, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Buick Regal Sportback transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Regal Sportback 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.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick Regal Sportback and the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Regal Sportback is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Ioniq EV.
