Editor's Overview

A smart and sporty 4-door hatchback, the 2018 Hyundai Ioniq gives environmentally conscious shoppers a choice among three affordable models; a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and a pure electric vehicle. It takes on the popular Toyota Prius, as well as the Chevy Bolt, Chevy Volt, Ford C-Max and the similar Kia Niro in the growing market for electrified fuel-efficient small cars that offer real-world practicality.

Awesome car with plenty of room and A+ gas mileage

I love my vehicle. I love the design of the interior and exterior, the amount of space inside the car as well as the color. The gas mileage of the hybrid is also phenomenal.

- Susan P

Awesome cost-effective fuel-efficient vehicle with all the high tech

love all the high-tech features they have in the car (e.g., Google car), and the ability to drive endless miles on such small fuel capacity. Saves me a ton of money on gas.

- Janet L

The outstanding, best in class 55 Miles Per Gallon fuel efficiency.

I like the styling, comfort and technology of my 2018 Hyundai Ioniq. I love the mileage. At this point there is nothing that I don't like.

- Don L
