2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Portland Oregon

To the surprise of many, Hyundai was thrilled to release their new hybrid/electric model in early 2017. The stylish and efficient model, known as the Ioniq, comes in three different powertrain options and all new levels of tech. The forward thinking design of the Ioniq is both futuristic in style and practical by nature. The premium interior is layed out to offer high levels of comfort and entertainment. As the world’s first car to be offered in three electrified versions, the Ioniq has made a statement for the future of efficiency and value.

Built from the ground up with an entirely new framework, Hyundai took the opportunity to perfect the Ioniq from every angle. The sporty and modern exterior gives the Ioniq a unique personality and aerodynamic stature that was designed to manage airflow. The wheel air curtains, smooth underbody cover, and active aero front grille come together to provide a class-leading coefficient of drag at 0.24. Light and strong, the Ioniq uses a clever balance of advanced high-strength steel and aluminum in its body structure. Contributing to the lightness of the 2017 Ioniq, the care uses a variety of lightweight raw materials such as sugar cane, volcanic stone, and powdered wood across interior materials.

While seated inside of the 2017 Ioniq, drivers and passengers will be pleasantly surprised by the abundance of premium surfaces and tech features. The adjustable seating and tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel allow the driver to place themselves in the optimal position for confidence and comfort. Standard with proximity key entry, push button start, dual automatic climate control and a 7-inch touchscreen display, the Ioniq includes several tech features that are typically reserved for the luxury classes. Available on all trims are heated front seats, wireless device charging, and an infinity premium audio system.

The Ioniq’s infotainment system is prepared to keep all entertained and safe. Ready to rock, the interface keeps you connected with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Satellite Radio, Bluetooth Audio, and USB/Aux connections. While tuned into your favorite content, the system can be easily managed by the on-wheel controls or intuitive touch display. Outside of entertainment, the Ioniq’s system display’s its standard rearview camera and available integrated navigation system. While entertaining and intuitive on the inside, the 2017 Ioniq offers several active and passive features to keep everyone on the road safe.

Standard on all trims of the Ioniq includes leading safety technologies like brake assist with electronic stability and traction control systems. Available on upgraded trims are more active features like lane departure warning, smart cruise control, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Family friendly, the 2017 Ioniq is equipped with a rear LATCH system for easy car seat integration. In the event of a collision, the front and rear crumple zones help minimize the impact on the passengers.

Conclusion

The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq is an innovative family vehicle that has set an efficiency example for the rest of the industry. With three drivetrain options from hybrid to fully electric, the Ioniq receives up to 58 miles to the gallon or 124 miles of drive time. With rear folding seats and advanced safety features, the Ioniq was built for functionality and protection. Breaking the mold of traditional hybrids, the 2017 Ioniq holds a sleek and modern design that has been thoughtfully crafted from the inside out.
