Ioniq Hybrid

2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid OVERVIEW

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.


Retailing at $23,285 (all prices include the $885 destination charge), the Ioniq Hybrid Blue lack many of the safety features fitted to pricier models. Nonetheless, the Blue comes with a rearview camera, remote keyless entry, and power side mirrors. The dual-zone climate control automatically defogs the windows, while Bluetooth is present alongside push button start. The seven-inch touchscreen display is equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There are no packages available for Blue models.


For $25,835, SEL models receive a number of significant upgrades over the Blue trim. Safety aids include automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, a driver attention warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change assist. The side mirrors are heated and gain turn signal indicators, LED headlights and taillights mark out the exterior, while the cabin is enhanced by leather detailing across the gear shifter and steering wheel. The front seats are heated, and the driver’s seat has 10-way power adjustment. Again, no packages are available.


There’s a substantial price increase to $29,435 for Limited models, but specifications are also significantly better. The cabin is lifted with small touches like LED lighting and door sill plates, while the seats gain leather. There’s a power tilt-and-slide sunroof, automatic high beam assist for the HID headlights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink and a compass. The 15-inch wheels of lesser models are also replaced with 17-inch alloy wheels.

Limited buyers receive three years of Hyundai’s Blue Link remote support as standard. This provides technologies like remote start and climate control management, voice-controlled destination searches, stolen vehicle recovery services and even a car finding utility. Some of these features are controllable via Android Wear and Apple Watch devices.

The Ultimate Package ($2,200) includes a navigation system, an eight-speaker audio system, wireless device charging, memory for the driver's seat, a cargo cover, floor console-mounted rear vents, rear parking sensors, dynamic bending headlights.

CarsDirect Tip

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.
