The Honda Civic Type R offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid 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 Hybrid in the front seats.
