Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai IONIQ 5 than in the Subaru Solterra. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai IONIQ 5 and the Subaru Solterra.

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 Hyundai IONIQ 5 is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Solterra.

Dimensions
The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is a little wider than the Subaru Solterra, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Solterra.

Handling
The Hyundai IONIQ 5 has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Solterra, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 greatly out-muscles the Subaru Solterra.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Solterra.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai IONIQ 5 and the Subaru Solterra.
