Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Ioniq EV offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Civic with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic, the Hyundai Ioniq EV may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Ioniq EV, due to its tank size and 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 Hyundai Ioniq EV will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda Civic, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Ioniq EV will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Civic.

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

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

Handling
The Hyundai Ioniq EV has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Ioniq EV is significantly less powerful than the Honda Civic. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Ioniq EV than that of the Honda Civic.
