|2017 Hyundai Ioniq|
2017 Hyundai Ioniq | Available as a composite, a plug-in composite, and an EV, the Ioniq is a master of masquerade. To casual spectators, it could pass as a run-of-the-mine compact car with a appetizing cost and comfortable interior fitteds. In true, it's completely new from the ground up, designed with electrification and future autonomous technology in brain and powered by some of the most efficient powertrains available today. Pleasant to drive, quick to accuse, and not unattractive, the Ioniq doesn't look like a science experiment or request that its owner be an eco clergyman. It's simply a well-executed vehicle that will save you fund on gas.
What's New for 2017 ?
Hyundai's stealth Toyota Prius fighter is new this year. The representation pipeline launched with its hybrid variance, which was followed by a pure-electric vehicle( it's an EV, representing no gas-powered locomotive ). A plug-in hybrid Ioniq is expected in fall 2017.
Trims and Options We'd Choose
The Ioniq EV's 124 -mile range isn' t enough to make it competitive against the likes of the Chevrolet Bolt, and in early drives of the plug-in version--which should have about 27 miles of EV range, according to Hyundai -- we ascertained it difficult to keep the car in EV mode, especially around municipality. Operators who prefer to travel many miles at a time on energy alone won't be satisfied with that characteristic. Instead, we'd prefer the hybrid representation, which gives excellent fuel-economy ratings with few compromises. The base hybrid decoration( called Blue) is a very good pick for scrimpers, starting at $23,085. We'd choice the $24,835 mid-level SEL trim, which adds, among other facets :
* Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alerting
* Heated front seats with driver lumbar subsistence
* LED brake lights
We'd contribute the $1000 Tech package in pursuit of adaptive cruise power, but it's hardly a necessity.
