What's New for the 2018 Hyundai Ioniq?

This year, Hyundai is sprucing up the Ioniq with a number of performance-friendly features. In the mid-grade SEL and top-trim Limited models, you'll find steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. You can use these to downshift at will, thereby accelerating at a faster rate when you need to merge onto the highway or pass the slow-moving vehicle up ahead. The Hyundai Ioniq lane departure warning system now features lane-keeping assist, a technology that actively keeps you on the right track.

When you shop for an Ioniq hybrid, you can choose between three trim models: the entry-level Blue, mid-grade SEL, and top-of-the-line Limited. With the Ioniq Blue, you get everything you need for a comfortable modern commute, including a 7-inch touchscreen interface and complete smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. This smartphone technology displays apps like Maps and Phone on your central touchscreen, so there's no need to look down at your phone - or away from the road. You can even use your phone's Maps app in lieu of paying for the upgrade navigation system. When you move up the list to the mid-range SEL, you'll enjoy greater luxury and increasingly innovative tech features. The charge-only USB port keeps your iPad ready for action. With the heated front seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel, you get an extra taste of the good life. Finally, there's the top-trim Limited, which delivers everything this hybrid hatchback has to offer, including handsome leather upholstery. The Limited also increases convenience, thanks to its auto-dimming rearview mirror and LED cabin lighting. When you add the Limited's Ultimate package, the wireless charging pad makes it easy to keep your smartphone battery up to snuff. This package also includes rear air vents, so your kids can stay cooler during a hot summer ride.

2018 Hyundai Ioniq Safety

After it earned top scores in every single crash test, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Hyundai Ioniq a 2018 Top Safety Pick. The IIHS also gave the Hyundai Ioniq front crash prevention system a rare score of "Superior." You'll find this technology on the top-trim Limited and the mid-range SEL's optional Tech package. The SEL and Limited come with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems. Use this technology to safely switch lanes on the highway or pull out of a parking space in a crowded parking lot.
