2020 Hyundai Ioniq vs. Its Competition

2020 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Toyota Prius is the iconic hybrid in the U.S.

and has been improved over prior model years.

The Ioniq is more affordable and lacks the Prius' instantly recognizable shape, which may be attractive to inconspicuous buyers.

The Nissan Leaf was new for 2018, but like the Ioniq Electric, it lacks the range to compete against cars with internal combustion engines.

The Chevrolet Bolt EV is one of the most affordable and longest range electric cars on the market.

The Ioniq’s kin, the Kia Niro, gets a big battery for 2020 with exceptional driving range, while the new RAV4 Prime adopts a plug-in powertrain with more than 32 miles of electric range.
