Overview

The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid is a direct competitor of the Toyota Prius Prime, offering a lower price, high feature content, and a less polarizing exterior shape and design. It slots between the Ioniq Hybrid and Ioniq Electric in terms of efficiency and price, though all three face an uphill battle in a market with low fuel prices and an increasing preference for crossovers and SUVs.

What's New for 2019

Following its 2018 debut, the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid adds updated voice recognition for the navigation system and a standard remote charge management system via Blue Link.

Choosing Your Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

The larger battery pack of the Plug-In Hybrid increases the electric-only range to a commuter-friendly 29 miles, while the engine extends the trip for nearly another 600 miles and erases any notion of range anxiety. The aero-efficient exterior shape yields a hatchback profile that’s most common with eco-focused vehicles while its interior layout is pure mainstream aside from its increased use of eco-friendly materials. The larger battery pack reduces the cargo space, though only slightly (down three percent), compared to the Ioniq Hybrid’s class-leading volume.

After the 8.9-kwh battery pack has been depleted, the gasoline engine fires up to assist the 44.5-kw motor and extends the total range beyond 600 miles. The battery can be fully charged in less than 2.5 hours with a 240-volt charger or about nine hours with a common household 120-V outlet.

The 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine is tuned specifically for high efficiency and generates a modest 104 horsepower and 109 pound-feet of torque. All power is routed through a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and down to the front wheels.

On electric-only propulsion, the Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated 119 miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent, which is less than the Ioniq Electric though it has a much greater range. In hybrid mode, it achieves 52 miles per gallon combined, which is less than the Ioniq Hybrid though the plug-in has theoretically traveled nearly 30 miles on just electricity.

The Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid base trim is priced at $26,235 (all prices include the $885 destination fee) and is equipped with LED daytime running lights, aero-optimized 16-inch wheels, heated and body-colored mirrors, and LED taillights. Proximity entry opens the door to a cloth interior with heated front seats, a six-way power driver seat, and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with SiriusXM, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay capability. Dual-zone climate control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are additional notable interior features. There are no option packages available for the Base trim.

Limited

The Limited trim begins at $30,235 and receives a full suite of active safety equipment that includes automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and lane keeping assist. The top-tier trim also receives LED headlights, mirror-integrated turn-signals, and chrome trim on the window line and door handles. Leather seats, a 10-way power driver seat, a seven-inch digital driver display, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror provide a more luxurious experience. The Ultimate Package ($2,975) bundles a long list of goodies that includes HID headlights with active cornering, automatic high beams, rear parking sensors, a larger eight-inch touchscreen with navigation, wireless device charging, an Infinity audio system with eight speakers, a sunroof, driver memory position, and LED interior lighting.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid Limited brings active safety gear and high-tech upgrades for a price that still undercuts its most direct competition.

Excellent fuel economy. When it comes to plug-in hybrids, the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid ranks toward the top with its gasoline fuel economy. With a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, the vehicle gets an EPA-estimated 52 miles per gallon combined. Only one vehicle, the Toyota Prius Prime, manages to best that with a combined rating of 54 mpg.

The Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid can travel on gas and on electricity. It has an all-electric range of 29 miles, according to the EPA, and can go another 601 miles when running on gas for a total range of 630 miles. When not running on gas, the plug-in hybrid has an EPA rating of 119 miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent (MPGe) combined.

Good cargo space. Because of the Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid's hatchback body style, the vehicle has more cargo space than a lot of its competitors that have sedan body styles. With the second row in place, the vehicle has 23.8 cubic feet of available cargo space. That bests competitors like the Chevrolet Volt, Ford Fusion Energi, and Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

Fantastic value. In typical Hyundai fashion, the Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid comes with an excellent list of standard features. The base plug-in hybrid model comes with: heated side mirrors, automatic headlights, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, a 7-inch touchscreen, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

In addition to having a strong list of standard features, the Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid can be fitted with a sunroof, HID headlights, automatic high beam assist, wireless charging, an eight-speaker Infinity audio system, and an 8-inch touchscreen.

Behaves and looks mainstream. The Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid's exterior design falls somewhere between being something that stands out and something that's more mainstream. For consumers that don't like standing out with something futuristic, the Hyundai's design will be welcome.

While the plug-in hybrid is all about fuel efficiency, the model is surprisingly fun to drive. In normal driving, the model manages to feel like a normal vehicle, which is high praise for a plug-in hybrid – they tend to be quirky. Power is adequate for daily driving and the regenerative braking system works well overall.


Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid

Final thoughts. As a complete package, it's hard to fault the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid. It has decent all-electric range, great fuel economy when running on gasoline, and behaves like a regular car, which is better than what some competitors offer. It's also an excellent value proposition.

A lot of automakers have been happy to make uncomfortable, futuristic plug-in hybrids that require you to compromise to get good fuel economy. That's not the case with the Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

The competition is fierce. The Chevy Volt has a more usable all-electric range of 53 miles. Going with the Toyota Prius Prime brings better fuel economy and more overall range (640 miles). If you're after a more spacious cabin, the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid is a better alternative.
