2018 Ioniq Hybrid MPG Fuel Economy

So, what is the MPG fuel economy of the 2018 Ioniq Hybrid? Its most efficient trim level is the Ioniq Blue, which gets an EPA-estimated 57 city/59 highway MPG. If you're planning a road trip or would just like to economize your daily commute, numbers like that are a great way to do it. 

To get the best possible fuel economy, you can choose the Eco setting in the Drive Mode Select. It adjusts throttle response to give you the most efficient ride possible-although you can always switch to the Sport setting if you're craving thrills instead. 

At the heart of the Hyundai hybrid system is a high-capacity lithium-ion polymer battery. Rumors abound that hybrid batteries are expensive to replace, but that's not the case here: The Lifetime Hybrid/Electric Battery Warranty covers all battery replacements, free of charge to the original owner. 

Safety Scores & Driver-Assist Features  

The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid earns top marks for safety, having earned an IIHS 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK award after passing every crash test with flying colors. That's a clear sign that this car is engineered to lower the risk of injury to the driver in the event of an accident. 

Ideally, you want to prevent an accident before it happens, and that's where driver-assist features come in. The Ioniq has a full suite available, including:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, warning you and applying brakes if an oncoming forward collision is sensed. 
  • Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, giving you audio and visual alerts if a vehicle is detected in your blind spot (or approaching from your side, if in reverse). 
  • Lane Keep Assist, warning you and applying corrective steering if you start drifting from your lane.

Technology That Keeps You Connected 

The 2018 Ioniq Hybrid offers several technology features standard, including Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. They let you use some of your favorite smartphone apps from the Ioniq touchscreen. Access maps, contact lists, texts, and even your music library, all from an interface that looks familiar to you. 

You'll also find some nice options, such as a wireless charging pad to help you keep your phone at full power throughout your drive. The available 8-speaker Infinity® sound system is the perfect way to enjoy your music-your favorite tunes will come through in crisp and clear sound.
