Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid than the Nissan LEAF, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan LEAF will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

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 Nissan LEAF will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, 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. In this case, the Nissan LEAF will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

The Nissan LEAF is a little narrower than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Nissan LEAF takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.
