2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - May 31, 2018

Model Preview

Given it debuted just a few years ago in the 2017 model year, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid will carry on mostly unchanged. There will, however, be a few technological tweaks that aim to make it safer and more driver-friendly.

Visually, the Ioniq Hybrid will be a virtual carbon copy of the current model. This design debuted for the 2017 model year to good reviews, so there is no reason for Hyundai to change things just yet.

Inside, everything will also remain visually identical, including its use of eco-friendly materials. One area buyers will notice a difference is the interface on navigation-equipped Ioniqs, as these will boast a new enhanced, natural-language, server-based voice-recognition technology with a new search database for points-of-interest.

Given there are no big changes to its looks, we also expect standard features to remain the same. If this proves true, its base Blue trim will include 15-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, height-adjustable front seats, a 7-inch touchscreen, a USB port, and more.

Powering the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid will be the same 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine backed by a 43-horsepower electric motor that will feed off a 1.56-kWh lithium-ion battery. These two propulsion units will do their technological waltz to the tune of 139 total horsepower and up to 58 mpg combined.

The 2018 Ioniq Hybrid is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, thanks to its suite of available safety features and structural integrity. The 2019 Ioniq Hybrid pushes this safety even further by making automatic emergency braking standard on the SEL trim and adding two new optional safety items, driver-attention alert and high-beam assist. We expect that Top Safety Pick rating to remain in 2019.

Pricing & Release Date

Hyundai expects to have the 2019 Ioniq Hybrid in showrooms in the summer of 2018.

Official pricing will come closer to the release date, but with its lack of change, we don’t expect much of a price shift from the 2018 model’s $23,085 to $28,435 (destination fees included) MSRP.

Competition will include the Toyota Prius, Honda Insight, and Ford C-Max.
