Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Civic offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic, drivers may find the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

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 Honda Civic 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. In this case, the Honda Civic will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic 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. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

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

Handling
The Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic 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.

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

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