Hyundai’s IONIQ Hybrid in its previous guise remained one of the strongest electrified models on the market, offering quality, style and efficiency in a well-valued package.
Nobody is safe resting on their laurels though, and to ensure this success continues, Hyundai has recently refreshed the electrified machine to keep it among the front of the pack. What’s new, then? We take a look…
Though it’s fair to say the Hyundai IONIQ didn’t look outdated, updates to the car’s styling have really kept it fresh in the eye of modern design. At the front of the car, a new bumper with silver moulding brightens the fascia while revised head and taillight designs enhance the fresh feel further.
The IONIQ’s cabin hasn’t been radically changed here, but it does benefit from a handful of tweaks.
Customers of an IONIQ Hybrid can now opt for black, grey or ‘Red Umber’ leather seats, while dashboard trim can now be had in Dark Chrome Accent. Sitting underneath a new 10.25-inch infotainment screen is a tweaked control panel for climate control settings, sporting a glossy black finish. Blue ambient lighting has also been dotted around the cockpit.
Improved safety technology
Hyundai is up there at the front of the pack when it comes to safety technology, and this raft of updates to the Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid ensures it stays that way for the foreseeable future.
An enhanced version of the firm’s impressive ‘SmartSense’ package has been fitted. This brings with it Front Collision Warning and Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian detection, plus Cyclist Detection and Driver Attention Warning. Further still, Lane Keep Assist and High Beam Assist come as standard.
