New for 2017

The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq is the automaker's first entry into the alternative propulsion segment and will be available in three variants.

Vehicle Summary

The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq is an alternative propulsion vehicle with a four-door hatchback body style. Available in three different variants including hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and all-electric, the Ioniq is aimed at the Toyota Prius, Chevrolet Bolt EV and Volt, and the Audi A3 e-tron. The Ioniq is a sister vehicle to the Kia Niro, which will be available in hybrid or plug-in hybrid versions but not as an EV.

Overview

The first of three 2017 Hyundai Ioniq variants to be released is a conventional hybrid powered by a 1.6-liter I-4 coupled to a 32-kW electric motor and a 1.56-kWh lithium-ion battery. The Ioniq's electrified powertrain delivers an EPA-rated 55/54 mpg city/highway, and the more efficient Ioniq Blue manages an impressive 57/59 mpg. Total system output is 139 hp.

There's also a plug-in variant that takes the same engine and pairs it to a more powerful 45-kW electric motor backed by an 8.9-kWh lithium-ion battery. Hyundai estimates that the Ioniq PHEV will be able to travel over 25 miles on EV mode. Both the Ioniq Hybrid and Ioniq PHEV feature a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission instead of a continuously variable transmission (what most hybrids and PHEVs use). The Ioniq Hybrid and PHEV use an independent multilink rear suspension setup and the Ioniq Electric uses a torsion beam. Front wheel air curtains, a rear spoiler and diffuser, side sill moldings, floor undercover and a closed-wheel design all contribute to the car's high aerodynamic efficiency of 0.24 Cd.

The Ioniq Electric uses an electric motor with 118 hp and 218 lb-ft of torque and puts its power down through a single-speed automatic. On a full charge, the EV has an EPA-rated driving range of 124 miles. Using a 240V (level 2) charger, it takes about four and a half hours to fully charge the Ioniq Electric. The car is also compatible with DC fast chargers and can get the car back to 80 percent in 24 miles and 90 percent charge in 33 minutes.

As with every Hyundai product, the Ioniq offers a long list of standard and optional features including a rearview camera, heated front seats a 4.2-inch display between the gauges, a 7.0- or 8.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, leather upholstery, HID headlights, LED headlights on the PHEV and Electric variants, rear parking sensors, a sunroof, wireless charging, an Infinity premium audio system, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Because it's a hatchback, the Ioniq also offers generous cargo space at 26.5 cubic feet for the standard hybrid and 23.0 cubic feet for the EV and PHEV. All variants come standard with 60/40 split-folding rear seat in case you need more space for hauling your gear.

Safety

A host of active safety features are available for the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq lineup including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, bind spot warning, adaptive cruise control and rear cross-traffic alert.

Cool Fact

The interior door covers are made of plastic combined with powdered wood and volcanic stone while providing the same quality appearance of typical plastic-based materials. Raw materials extracted from sugar cane are partly applied on the headliner and carpet.
