Ioniq SEL 2018 , Niro 2017 EX
Ioniq has paddle shifters( I don’t really use them), Niro has automatic folding mirrors.
Seats not to comfortable, but Niro’s look better.
Steering flat bottom Ioniq vs round for Niro, I prefer the round one. My wife thinks Ioniq steering feel is lighter and more precise, may be because the Ioniq is lighter and lower center of gravity?
Cabin noise is about the same. Michelin energy saver on both, Niro has 16 inch vs 15 for Ioniq.
Ioniq has blue light for dials/radio, Niro has red, I like the blue.
Temperature controls on the Ioniq get pushed by me anytime I’m reaching in the “ash tray”, Niro doesn’t have the same problem , but is also missing the small screen for controls. You have to push a button to display it on the 7 inch screen.
“Display off”on Ioniq, single button, Niro: you have to press Setup to get to the function: display off.
My wife thinks Niro looks better and I agree
Niro no power seat, my wife and I prefer this and its faster anyway.
Audio system sounds better in Niro.
More trunk space in the Ioniq.....way more.
The shifter in the Ioniq is nicer, trigger pull, compared to push button from the side in Niro.
On the same road, Ioniq stays EV longer and more often than Niro, maybe that explains the 10 mpg more on the Ioniq. 65 vs 55 mpg.
Not sure why, but my wife always gets better mileage in both cars than me, I tought that women are supposed to be “bad drivers”
In short if we’ll have to do it again, I will still get the Ioniq and my wife, still the Niro.
I will keep adding stuff once I notice it.
