Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Ioniq EV than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, drivers may find the Mercedes-Benz E-Class a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class 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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Ioniq EV is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Hyundai Ioniq EV will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Ioniq EV is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Hyundai Ioniq EV, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Hyundai Ioniq EV has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The Hyundai Ioniq EV has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The Hyundai Ioniq EV offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Ioniq EV than that of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
