2019 Hyundai Ioniq is an efficiency warrior
The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq starts at $22,400, plus $920 for destination.
Fully loaded, the this hybrid goes for $31,670 out the door.
My Ioniq SEL's as-tested price is $25,870.
Under the hood sits a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. Total system output is 139 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque when combined with the 43-horsepower electric motor.
That power is channeled through a six-speed, dual-clutch transmission routing power to the front wheels. After a week and 489 miles, I managed 47.8 mpg combined -- short of the EPA's 55 mpg combined estimate.
With a 1.56-kilowatt-hour, lithium-ion battery under the rear seats, cargo space is a generous 26.5 cubic feet.
The Ioniq's interior is spacious and comfortable, albeit bland.
A 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comes standard. So do HD and satellite radio.
My midrange SEL tester includes features like pedestrian-detecting collision-mitigation braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control that works down to 5 mph and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
