Hyundai is launching a heavily revised version of the Ioniq hybrid and plug-in hybrid.
Revisions to the Ioniq electric will be revealed soon.
The 2019 Ioniq features Bluelink telematics services, SmartSense active safety and driving assistance systems, Adjustable Regenerative Braking, which is set using paddle shifts, and new infotainment.
In addition, the Ioniq’s design has been updated both outside and inside.
Hyundai SmartSense includes Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA), plus Driver Attention Alert (DAA).
The Ioniq’s new interior is available with a 10.25 inch Audio Video Navigation system featuring voice recognition software, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Hyundai Live Services are built-in as standard.
Below the screen, the control panel for the heating and climate control has been redesigned as well.
Outside, the new Ioniq is equipped with Hyundai’s cascading mesh grill and a new front and rear bumper design, creating a more refined and dynamic look.
The optional LED head and taillights have been redesigned and there are three more paint colours available – Fluidic Metal, Electric Shadow and Liquid Sand.
To improve efficiency, the new Ioniq is equipped with the world’s first ‘Green-zone Drive Mode (GDM)’ which automatically switches the vehicle’s driving module in designated areas to further run on electric power rather than the internal combustion.
