New for 2018

A new variant, the Hyundai Ioniq Pug-In, joins the electrified lineup for the new model year. The Ioniq Electric and Hybrid are carryover models. Paddle shifters are now standard on the plug-in model and available on the hybrid Lane Departure Warning adds the Lane Keep Assist function.

Vehicle Summary

The Hyundai Ioniq is a hatchback that offers a traditional hybrid, plug-in electric hybrid, and battery electric variants. The hybrid model is the most affordable of the three, with a starting price similar to the midsize Sonata sedan and compact Tucson crossover.

Overview

The 2018 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid is powered by a 1.6-liter I-4 paired to a 32kW electric motor for a total system output of 139 hp and delivers an impressive EPA-rated 57/59 mpg city/highway for the base Blue model and 55/54 mpg for the rest of the lineup (2017 figures). The Ioniq Plug-In uses the same 1.6-liter engine but paired to a larger 45kW electric motor with an estimated total output of 156 hp. The EPA has yet to rate the plug-in model. The hybrid and plug-in models send power to the front wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

A 118-hp, 215-lb-ft of torque 88kW electric motor powers the Ioniq Electric and comes with an EPA-rated driving range of 124 miles. In Motor Trend testing, the Ioniq Hybrid hit 60 mph in 9.4 seconds and stopped from 60 mph in 124 feet, expected numbers from a hybrid vehicle.

The range-topping Hyundai Ioniq Limited comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, power moonroof, heated front leather seats, HID headlights with LED accents, LED interior illumination, LED taillights, a 7.0-inch center touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7.0-inch driver's display screen, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and Blue Link Telematics, Connected Care, and Remote Charge Access. The Ioniq Electric Limited comes standard with heated leather front seats, a powered driver's seat, LED headlights, 16-inch eco-spoke wheels, 7.0-inch center touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7.0-inch driver's display screen, power-folding side mirrors with puddle lamps, rear seat air vents, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Blue Link Telematics, Connected, Remote Package, and Remote Charge Access.

Safety

All of the driver assist safety features for the Ioniq lineup are included in the Ultimate package for the Limited trim and include automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, headlights with Dynamic Bending Light (HIDs on the Electric model), and rear parking sensors. If you don't get the Limited trim, the Tech package for the SEL trim includes automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. The SEL trim on the Hybrid model comes standard with blind-spot warning and rear-cross traffic alert as does the Limited trim on the Electric model.
