2022 Hyundai Ioniq vs. Its Competition

2022 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The iconic Toyota Prius and plug-in Prius Prime are the most direct alternatives to the Ioniq Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid respectively.

The Ioniq lacks the Prius’ distinct look, but it’s a better hybrid in many of the ways—like drivability—that will matter to shoppers.

The Prius Prime offers a more electric plug-in hybrid experience though, and that’s why it’s the pick if you want to charge up.

The Kia Niro is the Ioniq’s crossover cousin, with hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions—offering more space and utility at some fuel-efficiency sacrifice.

And if you’re willing to spend up, the new Toyota RAV4 Prime adopts a plug-in powertrain with 42 miles of electric range.

Among EVs, the Chevrolet Bolt EV has been recently refreshed, and the Nissan Leaf remains an attractive package but in its base form doesn’t rival the range of anything you fill with gasoline.
