2020 Hyundai Ioniq’s Least Exciting Feature is its Secret Weapon

by Chris Butsch

I’ve always liked the Ioniq. Years ago, as other hybrids fitted skinny tires that gripped like bowling shoes on a frozen lake, the Ioniq dared to have “regular” tires. Its superior grip, mated with a torquey electric motor, gave the Ioniq a uniquely sporty quality. 

Even as competitors pull back the eco-zealotry for improved drivability, the Ioniq still maintained a lead in one key category. Hyundai and Kia are the only manufacturers to offer a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty on their hybrid sedans. 

Considering that hybrid powertrains can fade and cost thousands in maintenance around ~80-100k miles, this is a game-changer.
