Great car!
We have been looking to purchase a car for over 2 years, but my wife and I found nothing that checked all the boxes. My commute is over 50 miles round trip, gas prices are high (even higher now), and I don't like spending time in the shop having things fixed. I take meticulous care of my vehicles, and one of the cars I was replacing had over 240,000 miles on it. We had settled on a vehicle, but my wife suggested we look into the Ioniq (I had never heard of it).

After test driving one and doing a little research, we decided it was the one for us.

In my mind we were making a reasonable, responsible decision. In addition to the standard 100,000 mile warranty, the lifetime warranty on the Hybrid battery gave me confidence to buy it vs leasing it. Again, I thought it was the adult and practical choice.

After driving it for a few months, I actually love this car! We've owned a Jaguar, Lexus, Nissans and an Acura.
But the Hyundai is well designed, much roomier than you would think, and thanks to it being a Plug-In Hybrid, my commute is cut to almost half the time.
The range is at least twice the Lexus, I fill it up every 3 or 4 weeks vs every 6 days, and costs half to fill vs the Jaguar.

Cheaper gas, less often!

Pros
Gas mileage, cost to operate, HOV sticker.

Cons
Side visibility, no standard sunroof.

Great, smaller car
7500 miles and 2 scheduled services on the car so far.

Highlights: the safety features (lane keep assist and urgent braking) are actually really good and useful. Adaptive cruise control is also pretty nifty, but I find I have to be picky about the driver in front of me. Some people really drive spastically, and the radar control just ties your speed to their speed. Whatever, still neat. Fuel economy is fantastic, and thanks to the plugin, my first 25-28 miles are gas-free. There are plenty of days where i just make short trips around and don't use any gas. On longer trips, the hybrid fuel economy is really good. I think I'm getting above 60 MPG even on hybrid, but the car is supposed to get 52 MPG. I don't know what's going on, I just know it really, really savors its fuel. Also, the hatchback has a ton of room: luggage AND golf clubs can fit in the back , yet still have room for 3 passengers & driver. Cargo cover provides some privacy and makes the back look less appealing for breakins.

Lowlights: It's actually a small car on the inside. If I have 4 adult passengers, it's cramped. Long-legged people will not enjoy the ride so much, and plenty of people bump their noggin getting in / out of the car. No spare tire, just a tire inflation kit. Some day, that's going to really annoy me. Minimal vents for A/C to the rear seats, and only 1 USB in the center console for the use of people in the back. Also, there's a weird little ledge on the top of the rear bumper whose only purpose in life is to accumulate dirt and water, then slather it on my legs when I put stuff in the back.

Overall, highlights far, far outweigh the negatives. There are a bunch more things I could have listed on highlights, it's a great car and I'm very happy I bought it.

Pros
Easy to drive
Great fuel economy
Great safety features
Ample cargo space

Cons
No room to spare in passenger compartment
Minimal airflow to back seat
Minimal power/chargers for back seat
Driver seat comfort is meh

Ionic plug-in hybrid is a great car.
the Ionic plug-in hybrid is even better than expected. It's a really nice car. Excellent road handling. With 29 miles on a full electric charge, we are averaging 100 MPG. Room for a big guy. Safety features are exceptional. Excellent road handling, Sport mode eats Pa hills and curves. Love the car.

Pros
Handles like a sports car. Fuel mileage is exceptional, only 5 gallons every 500 miles. Most days, the gas engine isn't needed. We will probably get better mileage during the summer because heater required some gas engine use.

Cons
Needs to improve sound deading in the back of the car from road noise.

Awesome Ride
I love my Ioniq. I've had it almost a year and have over 23,000 miles. Not problems. Great, smooth ride. Awesome gas mileage, usually around 120mpg which means I go over 1000 miles on a tank of gas, which is about 10 gals filled up. I have over 650 mile range when fully gassed and charged. I get 29 miles on charge, which is just enough to get to work and almost enough to get me home (while I'm cruising the HOV lanes). Great layout of features inside. I like that this car doesn't look like a spaceship. When driving you can't tell you are in an electric car expect for how quiet it is. I got the leather seats and they are very comfortable (from someone with sciatic pain). Roomy enough for the size of the car: Can hold 4 football players (plus driver) and their gear. This car is built to be light so there are many plastic components that I'm used to being metal. It's not a sports car, but the sport mode does give you pick up when you need it.

Pros
Gas mileage and range
HOV lanes
Rebate (federal, state, SDGE)
Ease of use.
I like not having to use key

Cons
not a lot of power

Looks Like I Have A Lemon
I had my brand new 2019 ionic plug-in for a total of 4 days before the check engine light came on. It went to the dealership for repair, 7 days later it was given back claiming it was fixed. Two days later the check hybrid system warning came on. I again took it to the dealership for repair, 51 days later I have my vehicle back. I’ve been working with Hyundai Corporation since November 1 on a resolution to this problem. I have yet to receive a final response.
