2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid: 5 things you should know about this 'Prius killer'

Cars
Hyundai's new Ioniq series of eco cars hit the road recently and leading the way is the [UNKNOWN] hunting 2017 Ioniq Hybrid. Here are five things that you need to know. The 2017 Ioniq Hybrid is now the most fuel efficient car without a plug. The [UNKNOWN] estimates 58 combined mpg and its based blue trim level which [UNKNOWN] 56 miles per gallon estimate Underhood is a 1.6 liter gasoline engine [UNKNOWN] to a 32 kilowatt electric motor. Total out with 139 ponies and a 195 pound [UNKNOWN] torque. Rather than a CVT like most hybrids, the Ioniq sends its power through a six speed dual clutch automatic transmission. The standard seven inch Blue Link infotainment system features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity and it's quite good as is. The only upgrade available is tuned eight inch unit when the optional on board navigation's been specked. The base model includes a standard rear camera but the SEL and Limited models gain blind spot monitoring and optional upgrades to automatic emergency breaking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning systems. In addition to the high-voltage powertrain all hybrids have a separate 12-volt system that runs the on-board computer, infotainment system, and of course, the gasoline engine. If that battery dies because you left the lights on over the weekend, you'll find yourself begging for a jumpstart. However, the Ioniq features an internal jumpstarter that, at the touch of a button, recharges the dead 12-volt battery with power from the big hybrid battery pack, no cables needed. What do I know when I thought of that before? So there are five things you should know about the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. Find out even more including what we think about its plug in hybrid and fully electric twin over on THEROADSHOW. COM.
