Comparison Review

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

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 Plug-In Hybrid 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 Plug-In Hybrid will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid 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 Plug-In Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid has much less torque than the Subaru Impreza, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance

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

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