Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the FIAT 500L than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the FIAT 500L 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). Based on MSRP, the FIAT 500L is clearly a better financial choice over the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid. 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 FIAT 500L is much higher than that for the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500L is a little narrower than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The FIAT 500L is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the FIAT 500L does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

Handling

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the FIAT 500L and the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

The basic warranty of the FIAT 500L is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.
