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 MINI Hardtop. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Ioniq EV and the MINI Hardtop in the front seats.

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 is somewhat more expensive than the MINI Hardtop. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Hyundai Ioniq EV is much higher than that for the MINI Hardtop.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Ioniq EV is much wider than the MINI Hardtop, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Hyundai Ioniq EV, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI Hardtop.

Handling
The Hyundai Ioniq EV has a smaller turning radius than the MINI Hardtop, 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 MINI Hardtop. 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 MINI Hardtop, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The Hyundai Ioniq EV offers greater seating capacity than the MINI Hardtop, 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 MINI Hardtop.
