2018 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid review: Our expert's take


What it is: Hyundai introduced the Ioniq for 2017 with gas-electric hybrid and all-electric battery-powered versions. For 2018, the automaker adds a plug-in hybrid variant. All three models are compact hatchbacks.


The hybrid uses a 1.6-liter engine and 32-kilowatt electric motor for a combined 139 horsepower. It has a lithium-ion battery pack and a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. The all-electric version has an 88-kW motor, a lithium-ion battery pack and a single-speed automatic transmission. It has an EPA-estimated driving range of 124 miles on a full charge.


Competitors include the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Nissan Leaf, Toyota Prius and Volkswagen e-Golf.


The EPA says the new plug-in hybrid version of the Ioniq has an electric-only range of up to 29 miles on a full charge and an overall driving range of 630 miles. It uses a 1.6-liter four-cylinder gas engine and a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, along with a 44.5-kW electric motor and an 8.9-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack. The regular hybrid has a 1.56-kwh battery. Paddle shifters are standard on the plug-in version and newly available for the regular hybrid.

Good car...windshield is cheaply made

Great value for money, warranties n gas mileage..55/mpg. Windshield is made of cheap materials...get windshield insurance that dealer offers, you’ll need it...also, rear hatch window could use a wiper...other than that the car is perfect.

59 MPG Rocks

Very happy with this vehicle - so happy that my spouse recommended it - I bought her one a few months earlier! Both vehicles are everything as advertised. Love the Apple CarPlay

5.0

Love everything about it

I don’t understand why the Ioniq has been a poor seller. It has great looks inside and out. I am 6’3” and it fits me very comfortably. I traded in a Sonata, which I loved and was concerned about roominess, ride, comfort and road noise, but have found all to be impressive. My first two tanks of gas yielded 55.9 mpg, which is the primary reason I bought an Ioniq.
