Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Hyundai Ioniq EV than in the Subaru Impreza, due to the Hyundai Ioniq EV's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, drivers may find the Subaru Impreza a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Subaru Impreza 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 Subaru Impreza, 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 Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Ioniq EV is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Ioniq EV takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

Handling
The Hyundai Ioniq EV has about the same turning radius as the Subaru Impreza, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Hyundai Ioniq EV has less horsepower than the Subaru Impreza, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
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 Impreza.

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

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