The 2018 Hyundai Ioniq Gets Some of the Best Fuel Economy Ratings You’ll Find
If you’re like most people, you want to save money on gas, but you also want a car that performs well. You can have it all with the 2018 Hyundai Ioniq. Available in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and all-electric versions, the Ioniq delivers some of the best fuel economy and mpg-equivalent ratings in the industry, but it also rides smooth and has plenty of pep. It gets a remarkable 57 mpg city and 59 mpg highway, while also providing quick acceleration when you need it with its 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine. The Ioniq electric features a 118-horsepower electric motor mated to a single-speed transmission. This powertrain gives the Ioniq a 136 mpg-e rating, one of the highest among EVs. The 139-horsepower plug-in hybrid version uses the same four-cylinder engine and transmission as the hybrid, adding an 8.9-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack. Its fuel economy rating of 119 mpg-e makes it one of the most efficient plug-in hybrids you can buy. Compared to other hybrids, the front-wheel-drive Ioniq feels comfortable and easy to drive, with smooth braking and finely tuned steering. People in the Salem and Albany, OR areas who want room to put their stuff will appreciate that the Ioniq Hybrid has one of the largest trunks in its class, offering 26.5 cubic feet of cargo space. The Ioniq has a lifetime hybrid/electric battery warranty, and it’s available now at Withnell Hyundai.
Environmentally conscious people in the Keizer and Woodburn areas will be glad to know that the new Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid’s interior was built with mostly eco-friendly materials. Sugar cane accounts for 25% of the raw materials used in the cabin’s soft-touch door trim panels, while recycled plastic combined with powdered wood and volcanic stone reduces the weight of some interior plastics up to 20%. Unlike many cars, the Hyundai Ioniq offers support for Apple Carplay and Android Auto standard. Every Ioniq also comes with Blue Link complimentary for three years. With this feature, drivers in the McMinnville and Albany, OR areas can remotely start the Ioniq and defrost its windshield on cold mornings via the Blue Link smartphone or smartwatch app, Amazon Echo or Google Home. Other standard features include a 7-inch touch-screen display, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, a proximity key, and push-button start. Optional features include navigation, a sunroof, wireless charging for smartphones, an eight-speaker Infinity stereo, and heated front seats.
It’s easy to be a confident driver in the new Hyundai Ioniq, which is a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick.

Optional safety features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot detection, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and Dynamic Bending Light. Whether you get the hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or all-electric version, the Hyundai Ioniq is a smart investment. Visit Withnell Hyundai and test drive one today.
