The Honda Civic Type R offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Ioniq EV with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Civic Type R and the Hyundai Ioniq EV in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic Type R 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). The Honda Civic Type R is somewhat more expensive than 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 Type R and the Hyundai Ioniq EV have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic Type R does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Ioniq EV.
