2022 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid
Hyundai is stepping out of its comfort zone and attempting to achieve something that many will never expect from them, making a car that runs on an electric-only powertrain. You read that correctly; the Hyundai Ioniq will run purely on battery power but for short distances. It's the first of its kind, and if it's successful, Hyundai hopes to create a family of hybrid models. Here's what the Ioniq has to offer.
EngineThe 2022 Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid engine is a four-cylinder 1.6-litre GDI gasoline engine coupled with an electric motor to provide 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT).
InfotainmentThe 2022 Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid features a brilliant, intuitive infotainment system. With an 8.0-inch (upgradable to 10.3-inch) touchscreen, you'll have plenty of room to access your favourite apps, make calls, or turn up the volume on your favourite songs.
The infotainment system also offers Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can seamlessly integrate your phone into the car's system. That means you'll be able to stay in touch with family and friends even when you're on the road.
All this is available in a stunningly designed dashboard that feels more like high-tech gadgetry than anything else. The interior of the Ioniq Hybrid is one step ahead of its time!
ComfortThe Ioniq is a compact car with a sleek, modern look and plenty of onboard technology. It offers seating for five people on standard cloth upholstery. It also features heated front seats and available leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel. Overall, the cabin is spacious and comfortable for passengers in either row.
Safety FeaturesThe Electronic Stability Control system ensures that you have a smooth and seamless ride, even over the roughest of roads. It does this by sensing your vehicle's yaw (rotation) rate and steering angle and then quickly applying individual brakes to each wheel to help you maintain control.
The Blind Spot Detection system uses sensors to monitor areas behind and beside your vehicle that may be hard to see. If a vehicle enters your blind spot, you'll receive an audible and visual alert, so you know to move back into your lane. This feature also can detect vehicles approaching quickly from behind, such as when changing lanes, and alerts you so that you can check before moving over.
The Lane Departure Warning system is designed to help keep you in the correct lane when driving on highways by using a camera near the rearview mirror to detect lane markings. This feature alerts you if it detects that you're drifting out of your lane without signalling.
The Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning system helps make backing up out of a parking spot or driveway safer by scanning for vehicles approaching from either side. It’ll alert you if it detects a potential collision with another vehicle.
