Choosing a hybrid car? See how the new Hyundai Ioniq stacks up to the its green competitors!

Nowadays, shopping for a hybrid car can be challenging to say the least. It used to be that you had maybe one or two options to choose from when shopping for a hybrid car in the greater Roswell, GA area. Now that the hybrid and electric vehicle segments have positively exploded, you could river from Alpharetta, GA to Atlanta, GA, stopping at every car dealership along the way and see dozens of different hybrid models. Put simply, with so many "green" cars out there these days, it's hard to know which one is truly right for your and your family.

Now, we fully admit we're a bit biased here at Rick Case Hyundai of Roswell, but we think that our new Hyundai Ioniq is a real winner in the hybrid car segment, and we're confident it'll suit the needs and tastes of drivers from Johns Creek to Marietta and all points in between. That being said, we wouldn’t make such a bold, brazen, and quite frankly boastful assertion if we weren't ready to back it up. And while we certainly can't spend all day comparing the new Hyundai Ioniq to every hybrid and electric car on the market, we can show you how it stacks up against one of its most popular segment rivals that you might just have your eye on, the Toyota Prius One.

Now, what's the first thing you look at when you're looking into any car, hybrid or not? Obviously it's cost! You want to know which car is not just better for the environment, but also better for your budget. Luckily, the new Hyundai Ioniq comes out ahead in that category, which is to say that it comes out behind theToyota Prius One in price. The Hyundai Ioniq boasts a competitive staring MSRP of just $22,000, while the Toyota Prius One is significantly pricier at $23,475. What's more, with the significant tax incentives that come with owning a hybrid car here in Georgia, you may just be surprised by how much you can save with the new Hyundai Ioniq.

Of course, the next thing you'll want to know about the Hyundai Ioniq and Toyota Prius One is which of these two hybrid cars is more efficient. After all, if you're picking a hybrid, you want to pick the one that help you see as little of the gas pump as possible. Luckily, the Hyundai Ioniq wins in this category too, offering fuel economy returns of up to 57 mpg city / 59 mpg highway. As for the Toyota Prius, it only gets up to 54 mpg city / 50 mpg highway.

Naturally, there's a lot of other things you could compare between to the Toyota Prius One and the Hyundai Ioniq, but it's hard to really do justice to all of it in the span of one blog post. Ultimately, you want to know which one gives you the most in terms of features, or the most "bang for your buck" so to speak? Well, comparisons like that can be somewhat subjective, but with more standard horsepower, and amenities like the dual-zone automatic climate control, standard SiriusXM Satellite Radio, premium cloth upholstery, and a powertrain limited warranty ranging up to 10 years or 100,000 miles, we feel pretty confident that Georgia drivers will like what the Hyundai Ioniq has to offer more than what the Toyota Prius One has in store.

All that being said, we don't just want you to take our word for it when it comes to the Hyundai Ioniq. At Rick Case Hyundai of Roswell, we've always been big believers in hands-on learning. And if you'd like to get some time behind the wheel of the new Hyundai Ioniq to see if it's really the right hybrid car for you and your loved ones, don't hesitate to stop by our Roswell, GA Hyundai dealership to take it for a test drive today!
