The updated nose might not be for everyone. Gone is the vestigial grille pattern previously embossed in the nose fascia. Now, the asymmetric charge-port door is a lot more noticeable.

Performance specs are unchanged. That means the electric motor still generates 150 kW (201 horsepower) and 291 pound-feet of torque.

Powered by a 64-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, you're looking at MPGe numbers of 132 city, 108 highway and 120 combined, Hyundai says.

The new infotainment screen sits high on the dashboard for ease of visibility, and mercifully holds on to tuning and volume knobs.
