Hyundai Ioniq 2018 4-door hatchback Trim Shown: 2018 SEL 4-door hatchback FWD Sequential
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The Ioniq is the first direct challenger to the Toyota Prius. Evoking the Prius silhouette and hatchback configuration, the Ioniq hybrid matches it as a fuel sipper with 52 mpg overall. Power comes from a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine which, paired with the electric drive, puts out a combined 139 hp. The six-speed dual-clutch transmission isn't the smoothest, and there's some delay off the line. Like other hybrids, it can drive on electric power at low speeds. Handling lacks agility, and the ride is a bit unsettled but unobjectionable. The SEL comes with a power seat for an affordable price. A number of safety features, including automatic emergency braking and blind-spot warning, are available. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility is standard. There are also plug-in and fully electric versions.
