The all-new 2020 Hyundai Ioniq hybrid which we were thinking this vehicle will be going to be all about fuel efficiency and not all that fun to drive but we were wrong after checking this car.
Here are some reasons you might want to consider parking this Hyundai Ioniq 2020 in your garage.
Fuel Efficiency & Performance
Americans want to hit the road and they still want fuel efficiency, the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq is a traditional hybrid, and it’s up against the Toyota Prius which serves as the benchmark the gold standard for hybrid vehicles.
The Hyundai Ioniq hybrid gets up to 59 miles per gallon on the highway and that makes it America’s most fuel-efficient vehicle when it comes in four trim levels with the limited being the top of the line which gets up to 55miles per gallon. Although the horsepower isn’t a consideration point in buying this car, it does have a 139 horsepower gas electric combined hybrid engine.
What makes the Ioniq unique is that it doesn’t scream hybrid from the outside. Many consumers want style as well and the Ioniq comes with 17-inch wheels and a sporty front grille with led lights running the hood.
What we like the most is the rear design of the Ioniq although it’s a small four-door vehicle the rear is bold and lights are wrapped in a black ribbon across the rear.
Interior & Modes
Hyundai Ioniq 2020 has an f1 inspired square-based steering wheel with paddle shifters and the ability to shift from ECO mode over the sport mode so you can be conscious of the environment but also be able to shift over to sport mode and have a little fun.
The Ioniq is geared towards a younger buyer its sporty design complements the technology inside the car you get to pick between ECO mode and sport mode the paddle shifters in ECO mode engage the regenerative braking that puts electricity back into the batteries.
When you shift to sport it allows you to rifle through the gears making you feel like you’re in a sports car the steering wheel on the inside has the same square design as an F1 race car, you get a 10-inch touch screen on the limited edition but frankly, it’s too far to reach but you can control everything from the ease of your steering which makes everything easier.
You have wireless induction charging as well in the center console and USB ports to charge your devices. The heated leather seat surface also provides a higher-end feel inside the car.
The 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid has more than 29 high-tech safety features one of them is called smart cruise control with stop and go technology you can essentially set the cruise control and the vehicle will stop and go with the flow of traffic. The Ioniq comes with forward crash avoidance with pedestrian detection, lane keeps assisting, lane follow assist and parking distance warning so you don’t hit anything, and blind-spot collision warning with rear cross-traffic warning as well.
