SAFETY

The 2017 Ioniq is build around the SUPERSTRUCTURE frame and body. It is a rigid but lightweight built with high strength steel which adds a host of bonuses to the car. The strength of the SUPERSTRUCTURE is added to the use of structural adhesives that reinforce important areas and offer a high level of protection to the vehicle's occupants. In case of a collision this body/frame integrated system absorbs energy from the crash, takes it in, and directs it away from the precious cargo in the interior of the car.

PERFORMANCE

There are three powertrain types. The “electric” offers an 88 kW motor with a range of 200kms of emission free driving. The lithium-ion polymer battery that powers this system is set low in the car's frame to allow for a low center of gravity producing a agile drive. The “Hybrid” option offers a 1.6L gasoline engine with a 32 kW electric motor which allows for an exciting drive with lower emissions and a dual clutch system for added sportiness. The “Electric Plus” offers the best of both worlds with part gasoline engine and part electric. This option offers a larger lithium-ion polymer battery (compared to the “electric”) and an estimated 40 km range of electric only driving. The best in class fuel efficiency of 4.1/100km combined is an incredible feat and ensures you will save at the pump.

TECHNOLOGY

The vehicle itself is a technological marvel, but once you dig in deeper there is so much to see. The rigid steel and extended soundproofing allow for an unparalleled level of quiet no matter what is going on outside the car. The vehicle offers regenerative braking which takes lost energy in the form of friction and sends it back to the rechargeable battery. There are also standard heated front seats and available heated steering wheel and rear seats.

STYLE

The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq looks like something out of the future. Stunning lines and strong design cues make the outside of the vehicle look sleek and sporty. The large front fascia and grill make for an aggressive look while inside the cockpit there are strong horizontal contours in the dashboard and different colour accents for each model. Enjoy maximum cargo space with 60/40 split fold seats.

CONCLUSION

A vehicle that offers everything you need and more in a time where hybrid and electric vehicles are becoming the norm.
