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 Hybrid than the Toyota Prius Prime. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, drivers may find the Toyota Prius Prime a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.
