Right off the bat, we should establish the difference in powertrains between the Ioniq Hybrid and LEAF. While the Ioniq Hybrid pulls its power from a gasoline engine and an electric motor, the Nissan LEAF is an all-electric vehicle that runs only on battery power and an electric motor. That being said, the two models have quite a few similarities. Both come standard with Bluetooth® hands-free phone capabilities and an auxiliary audio jack. The two vehicles also offer comfortable seating space for five passengers. Although they are roughly the same size, the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid provides more rear seat leg room as well as more cargo space behind the back row than the Nissan LEAF. Additionally, the Ioniq Hybrid has dual zone automatic climate control, a 6-speaker audio system (compared to 4 speakers in the LEAF base trim), and daytime running lights. Which compact hatchback will you choose?
