Which Hybrid is the Right Choice for You?

If you're in the market for a new hybrid vehicle, there is a wide array of new options to choose from.

We've put together a brief comparison to help you find the right new hybrid for you:

The New Toyota Prius vs. the Hyundai Ioniq

  • Performance - Although both vehicles offer similar power, the Toyota Prius uses a Continuously Variable Transmission, which seamlessly accelerates without any hard, jarring shifting. The Hyundai Ioniq uses a regular dual-clutch transmission. If you're looking to get the most mileage possible, go with the Toyota Prius Two Eco, with up 58 MPG city--though the Hyundai Ioniq is almost there with up to 57 MPG city.
  • Safety - A huge consideration when buying your next car is safety. Although the Toyota Prius and the Hyundai Ioniq both offer automated safety systems, only the Toyota Prius has Toyota Safety Sense™ standard. The Toyota Prius is rated five stars for safety by the NHTSA, but the Hyundai Ioniq wasn't even tested. You'll also get top-rated child seat anchors in the Toyota Prius, vs acceptable anchors in the Hyundai.
  • Features - Looking for more features, conveniences, and comforts? Although both hybrid models offer a wide range of options, the Toyota Prius offers you more, including an available 11.6-inch touchscreen infotainment system with ten-speaker JBL premium sound. The Hyundai? You'll get eight speakers at the most, and a smaller eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
