The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid differs from the Ioniq Electric and Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid versions in several key respects. The Hybrid offers three trim levels, and has recently been upgraded with a number of optional safety features on flagship Limited models.
What's New for 2019
For 2019, the Ioniq Hybrid is available with advanced autonomous aids like driver attention alert, high beam assist, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane keeping assist. The voice recognition system has also been enhanced.
Choosing Your Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid
The Ioniq Hybrid utilizes a 1.6-liter gas engine complemented by a 32 kW electric motor, itself powered by a 1.56 kWh polymer battery. The combined result is a total output of 139 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, powering the front wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. SEL and Limited models gain paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.
Fuel economy is highest in the base Blue version, which achieves an EPA-estimated 57 miles per gallon city, 59 mpg highway, and 58 combined. Because they feature more technology, curb weights rise on SEL and Limited models, bringing fuel economy down to 55/54/55 mpg (city/highway/combined). In every model, drivers can select two distinct driving modes: Sport, which keeps the gas engine running constantly with the electric motor boosting responsiveness, and Eco, which adjusts gear selections to optimize fuel economy.
Blue models are quite sparsely equipped and can’t be upgraded, while Limited’s technological aids don’t justify its price increase, making the SEL the sweet spot in the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid range.
