Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Ioniq EV than the Honda Civic Si, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Ioniq EV will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Si.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic Si 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). Based on MSRP, the Honda Civic Si is clearly a better financial choice over 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. The Honda Civic Si and the Hyundai Ioniq EV have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic Si is a little narrower than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, 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 Si takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic Si doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Handling
The Honda Civic Si has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic Si 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.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic Si is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Ioniq EV.
