Comparison Review

The Hyundai Ioniq EV offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mazda Mazda3. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda Mazda3, the Hyundai Ioniq EV may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Mazda Mazda3 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.
