Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid than the Kia Rio, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Kia Rio and the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Kia Rio, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost

Based on MSRP, the Kia Rio is clearly a better financial choice over the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.

The Kia Rio and the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.
