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

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 Toyota Corolla Hatchback, which has a much lower MSRP.

The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid and the Toyota Corolla Hatchback have similar Destination Charges.
