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 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla Hatchback, the Hyundai Ioniq EV may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Toyota Corolla Hatchback 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

The Hyundai Ioniq EV and the Toyota Corolla Hatchback have similar Destination Charges.
