Hyundai is making waves with its newest release of the 2018 Ioniq Hybrid vehicle. What is being touted as perhaps the nation’s most fuel efficient hybrid, certainly doesn’t look like a hybrid.
Sporty and full of zippy “get up and go”, the new release has the auto community buzzing. Averaging a whopping 58 miles per gallon on both freeway and in-town mileage, the Ioniq has more than just car fanatics sitting up to take notice.
Hybrid powered vehicles are brilliant. But Ioniq takes things to a new level with thoughtful amenities, advanced safety features and ingenious design. Its comfort, convenience and responsiveness are proof that the future of hybrids is brighter than ever.
The Ioniq has safety as its first priority, which is demonstrated in the cutting edge technology contained in this vehicle. Outfitted with Smart Cruise:
Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection*
It can help detect a slowing or stopped vehicle and/or pedestrian and warn the driver of a potential collision. If the driver does not maneuver to avoid impact, the system will apply emergency braking.
Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert*
Provides audible and visual alerts if a vehicle is detected in the driver’s blind spot. In reverse gear, Rear Cross-traffic Alert warns the driver of vehicles approaching from the side.
Lane Keep Assist*
This available system may inform you when you begin to drift outside your lane without signaling and even apply corrective steering assistance, providing you with yet another feature designed to help you arrive safely.
Columbia Auto Center’s Hyundai Sales representative, Steve Hulst, shared a few of his thoughts on this new player in the Hybrid game during a recent interview: “I love the fact that it doesn’t look like a hybrid, but that it’s got a fun sporty look to it”, Hulst said. “I’ve been Hyundai certified for fifteen years, and this is an incredible value for a hybrid.”
The Ioniq is of course outfitted with all of the modern components like Bluetooth, back up camera, and navigation system. Technology in your car is always better when it’s familiar and personal. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ support put the smartphone apps you prefer right on Ioniq’s touchscreen. So you can get your information and entertainment via the interface that’s familiar to you while keeping your eyes ahead on the road and off of your phone.
Access maps, navigation, contacts lists, texts, calls, even your music library seamlessly and safely using the car’s touchscreen or voice recognition. But there’s even more contained in the very fabric of the seats inside.
Eco-friendly materials round out the whole package and concept of hybrid vehicles, and the Ioniq utilizes volcanic stone and sugar cane as ingredients for the interior materials.
Add onto that the incredible 10 YEAR / 100,000 MILE warranty, and you’ve got yourself a new contender for the driveway.
