Hyundai Ioniq buying guide

There are a few different ways you can specify your Ioniq, including what powers it under the bonnet. Our guide’s here to help you understand the trim and engine lineup, so you can make the best choice for you.

What Hyundai Ioniq trim levels are there?

There are three trims offered across the Ioniq lineup, with SE being the entry-level version. As standard, SE gets climate control, rear parking sensors, a basic five-inch infotainment screen, alloy wheels and adaptive cruise control.

Most Ioniqs are specified in Premium trim or above. This version adds key features including heated front seats and keyless entry, along with upgrades to the sound system, infotainment system and digital dials that sit in front of the driver.

At the top of the range sits Premium SE. This adds posh touches including ventilated front seats with electric adjustment for the driver, heated rear seats, leather trim and parking sensors at the front and the rear.

Hyundai Ioniq interior and technology

The Ioniq’s cabin is a pleasant place to spend time, with premium materials and solid build quality throughout. It can’t quite match the modern architecture found in Hyundai’s latest Ioniq 5, but you’ll find most of the up-to-date features you’d expect. All versions include an infotainment system and digital dials in front of the driver.

Hyundai’s infotainment system is easy enough to use and contains all the functions you’d expect along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Premium and Premium SE models get a far larger screen than SE models, and might be worth upgrading to if you regularly use digital features.

There’s a decent amount of space in the Ioniq, with room for four adults to sit comfortably, or five for shorter journeys. The extra length over an equivalent hatchback that comes courtesy of the extended wheelbase significantly helps cargo room, which is easily enough for two large suitcases, and possibly more if you pack tactically.

Hyundai Ioniq engine range explained

Hyundai Ioniq 1.6 GDi Hybrid

This is the entry-point into Ioniq ownership. This setup combines a 1.6-litre petrol engine with a battery pack and electric motor. The motor provides assistance when accelerating to reduce the strain on the engine. With a light right foot, the Ioniq Hybrid will average 62mpg while its 141hp output means it won’t feel too sluggish when your foot gets heavier. It can only travel for very short distance on pure electric power, however.

Hyundai Ioniq 1.6 GDi Plug-In Hybrid

The plug-in hybrid Ioniq adds a larger battery and motor to enhance its electric running abilities. This version can now travel 31 miles on battery power alone before the engine kicks in. Official average fuel economy is north of 250mpg.

Hyundai Ioniq Electric 38kWh

This is the purely battery-powered electric version of the Ioniq. It’s not going to challenge the likes of the Tesla Model 3 for EV supremacy, but it’s significantly more affordable than its American rival. The 38kWh battery pack is enough for a 193-mile range, which is easily enough for most daily commutes. The 100kW (134hp) electric motor is supremely responsive and feels nippier around town than its 9.3-second 0-62mph time might have you expect.

Hyundai Ioniq FAQs

There’s just one shape of the Hyundai Ioniq, with any differences being found in the engine bay. As such, all Ioniqs come as slightly elongated five-door hatchbacks, also known as ‘fastbacks’, with a little extra wheelbase devoted to bringing you a larger boot than some more conventional hatchbacks.

Be careful not to confuse the Ioniq model with Hyundai’s latest lineup of electric cars, which have taken the Ioniq name as something of a subbrand. The first of these models is called the Ioniq 5 – a chunky part-hatchback-part-SUV – with the second model, the Ioniq 6 coupe-saloon, due on sale in the next few years.

The Ioniq is just shy of 4.5 metres long. That means it’s longer than regular family hatches such as the Hyundai i30 (4.3 metres long), and a very similar length to its efficient fastback rival, the Toyota Prius. The cabin is similar in size to an i30, for example, with enough room for four adults to sit comfortably, or five to squeeze in for shorter journeys. Most of the extra length the Ioniq enjoys over hatchback rivals is used to give a larger boot, which also has a usefully wide opening.

Ioniq models are offered with three engine choices – a conventional ‘self-charging’ hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and a fully electric model – all with automatic gearboxes. All of these options work well so we’d suggest choosing the version that’ll most easily fit with your driving needs. For mainly suburban and city drivers, the full EV can slash your fuel costs or, if you need to do the odd longer journey, either of the hybrid options will make a great choice.

While their dual power sources might seem complicated, hybrids have proven to be more reliable than conventional petrol and diesel engines. In surveys, owners typically mention reliability as one of the areas of the car they're particularly happy with.

No, the Hyundai Ioniq isn't suitable for towing. Many hybrids can't tow at all or can only tow a small amount, although the Kia Niro hybrid has a 1,300kg towing capacity so can manage a small caravan.
