Newly All-EV Household With a 2023 Bolt EUV LT

My wife and I decided to go all-EV and purchase a new Bolt EUV due to our great experience thus far with our 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 and thanks to the temporary $7,500 tax credit. We've been enjoying our EUV over the first couple weeks and look forward to learning from you all and (hopefully) sharing some useful information along the way.

We got a Bolt EUV in December and a Ioniq 5 SEL AWD in January. Both great cars. They replace 2 very old Priuses. Our 2005 Prius is still running and the 2010 reached 300k miles.

Things I like about the Bolt: SuperCruise, rear wiper, light steering, easy to read dash displays and PRICE.
Things I like about the Ioniq 5 SEL AWD: power (320 hp!), looks (not just another SUV), seat comfort (sorry, Bolt), roomy rear cargo space, fast charging, more range.
As for differences between the Bolt EUV and Ioniq 5 I would add:

The Bolt has more assisted steering which I like. Ioniq 5 steering is a bit stiff.
The Bolt connects wirelessly with Waze which is really much better than by wire.
Not really a fan of the Chrome and black look on the Bolt. The teal green and cream interior of the Ioniq 5 is more refined.
Really like the sunroof on the Bolt. Audio quality on the cars is about the same. Not bad, not great but then I am very fussy about music, mainly classical.
