Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Spark, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Spark is clearly a better financial choice over the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Spark, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Spark is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Chevrolet Spark doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.

Utility
The Chevrolet Spark has less seating than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, making the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Chevrolet Spark than that of the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.
