The Ioniq Hybrid SEL/Limited’s blind spot warning system uses digital cameras monitored by computer to alert the driver to moving objects in the vehicle’s blind spots where the side view mirrors don’t reveal them. The Corolla Hybrid doesn’t offer a system to reveal objects in the driver’s blind spots.

To help make backing safer, the Ioniq Hybrid SEL/Limited’s cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Corolla Hybrid doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the Ioniq Hybrid and the Corolla Hybrid have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors and available rear parking sensors.

For its top level performance in IIHS driver-side small overlap frontal, moderate overlap frontal, side impact, rear impact and roof-crush tests, with its optional front crash prevention system, its “Good” rating in the new passenger-side small overlap crash test, and its available headlight’s “Acceptable” rating, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the Ioniq Hybrid the rating of “Top Pick” for 2019, a rating granted to only 106 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The Corolla Hybrid has not been tested, yet.

For better traction, the Ioniq Hybrid Limited’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Corolla Hybrid (225/45R17 vs. 195/65R15).

The Ioniq Hybrid Limited’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 45 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Corolla Hybrid’s 65 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Ioniq Hybrid Limited offers optional 17-inch wheels. The Corolla Hybrid’s largest wheels are only 15-inches.

The Ioniq Hybrid is 6.3 inches shorter than the Corolla Hybrid, making the Ioniq Hybrid easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The design of the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid amounts to more than styling. The Ioniq Hybrid has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .24 Cd. That is significantly lower than the Corolla Hybrid (.28) and many sports cars. A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the Ioniq Hybrid get better fuel mileage.

The front grille of the Ioniq Hybrid uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Corolla Hybrid doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

The Ioniq Hybrid has a much larger trunk than the Corolla Hybrid (26.5 vs. 13.1 cubic feet).

To allow full utilization of available cargo room, the Ioniq Hybrid’s hatch uses gas strut supported hinges that don’t intrude into the cargo area. Its intrusive beam hinge reduces the Corolla Hybrid’s useful trunk space.

When different drivers share the Ioniq Hybrid Limited, the optional memory seats make it convenient. Each setting activates different, customized memories for the driver’s seat position. The Corolla Hybrid doesn’t offer memory seats.

Consumer Reports rated the Ioniq Hybrid’s headlight performance “Very Good,” a higher rating than the Corolla Hybrid’s headlights, which were rated “Fair.”

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Ioniq Hybrid Limited offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Corolla Hybrid doesn’t offer cornering lights.

The Ioniq Hybrid’s optional rear view mirror has an automatic dimming feature. This mirror can be set to automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on it, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Corolla Hybrid doesn’t offer the luxury of an automatic dimming rear view mirror.

The Ioniq Hybrid SEL/Limited has standard heated front seats, which keep the driver and front passenger extremely comfortable in the winter. Heated seats aren’t available in the Corolla Hybrid.

The Ioniq Hybrid’s standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. The Corolla Hybrid doesn’t offer dual zone air conditioning.

Both the Ioniq Hybrid and the Corolla Hybrid offer rear vents. For greater rear passenger comfort, the Ioniq Hybrid Limited offers optional rear air conditioning vents to keep rear occupants cool in summer or warm in winter. The Corolla Hybrid doesn’t offer rear air conditioning vents, only heat vents.

The Ioniq Hybrid Limited’s available GPS navigation system has a real-time traffic update feature that plots alternative routes to automatically bypass traffic problems. (Service not available in all areas.) The Corolla Hybrid’s available navigation system doesn’t offer real-time traffic updates.
