2018 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid OVERVIEW

The 2018 Hyundia Ioniq Hybrid is Hyundai’s official answer to the Toyota Prius, and it’s a good one. With exceptional fuel efficiency and a strong feature-set, it’s a practical choice for a greener future that avoids the polarizing look of the new Prius.

What's New for 2018

New in 2017, the hybrid carries over mostly unchanged for 2018. Hyundai spent most of its time and money developing a new plug-in hybrid variant, so the only changes to the regular hybrid are available paddle shifters and a new lane-assist function.

Choosing Your Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

The star of the show in the Ioniq Hybrid is the powertrain, which pairs a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine to a 32-kW motor for a total of 139 horsepower. Hyundai says the goal was to exceed the Prius in fuel efficiency, which it did: the EPA estimates the Ioniq Hybrid Blue’s mileage at 57 miles per gallon city, 59 highway, and 58 combined. Also unusual is the six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, lending a more traditional driving experience than the CVTs in many hybrids. Cargo capacity also exceeds the Prius with 26.5 cubic feet behind the rear seats.

If you want to go even greener, the Ioniq is available as either a plug-in hybrid or a full electric. The plug-in and electric versions have their own trim specifications and are listed separately. The Ioniq Hybrid is available in three trims


After a destination fee of $885, the most basic Ioniq Hybrid starts at $23,085. It’s well equipped from the get-go, with features like automatic dual-zone temperature control, keyless entry and push-button start, a seven-inch touchscreen, and a rearview camera. That infotainment system also boasts SiriusXM satellite radio and HD radio, as well as Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity.

The Blue is not customizable: there are no available packages, and the only accessories are the usual dealer-installed stuff.

The Ioniq Blue is also the most fuel-efficient – if you want to match the EPA’s maximum estimate, this is the trim to get.


Priced at $24,885, the Ioniq Hybrid SEL adds more technology. This trim comes standard with heated seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

On the exterior, there are chrome accents, LED running lights, and turn signal indicators on heated side mirrors. The instrument cluster features an upgraded seven-inch LCD display. A Tech Package is available for $1,000 and adds automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warnings.


Hyundai’s fanciest trim begins at $28,335. On the exterior, it comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights, chrome door handles, and a sunroof. The interior boasts leather upholstery, LED headlights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a universal remote. Hyundai's BlueLink connectivity services area also standard on the range-topping Ioniq.

For top-of-the-line tech, buyers can add the $3,000 Ultimate Package. This package includes all the features of the SEL’s tech package plus swiveling headlights, rear parking sensors, an eight-inch touchscreen with navigation, an upgraded Infinity sound system, driver’s seat memory settings, and a wireless charging port.

CarsDirect Tip

The Ioniq’s standout features are its mileage and its practicality, both of which are maximized in the base Blue trim. It has just enough luxury features to make you feel at home anyway.
