Comparison Review

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

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 Dodge Challenger will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, 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 Destination Charge for the Dodge Challenger is much higher than that for the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Challenger is much wider than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Dodge Challenger, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

Handling
The Dodge Challenger has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Challenger has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid. 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 Dodge Challenger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Challenger and the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Challenger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.
