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 Subaru BRZ. The Hyundai Ioniq EV will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Subaru BRZ.

Convenience
With the Subaru BRZ 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru BRZ. 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 Subaru BRZ.

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 Subaru BRZ.
