Carwow Review

Carwow Rating: 6.0/10.0

Carwow POV of Hyundai Ioniq

Good:

  • Easy to drive
  • Cheap to run
  • More affordable than alternatives

Bad:

  • Slightly cramped back seats
  • Struggles at motorway speeds
  • Plug-in version more usable

The Hyundai Ioniq is a hybrid car that’s cheap to run and just about big enough for small families but it doesn’t look as stylish or feel quite as upmarket inside as alternatives – Carwow

Good:

  • Quicker, cheaper, and better-looking than a prius, and equally efficient

Oneshift Review

Good:

  • Chilled front seats
  • Good looking alloys
  • Attractive interior

Bad:

  • Interior plastic quality is a little scratchy
  • Lacking in performance and handling
  • Breaks are weak

Verdict: Not really a bargain Prius equivalent, the IONIQ is surprisingly a pleasant Hybrid to begin with, and you should honestly consider if you want a fuel sipper.

Car Contempo Review

Car Contempo Rating: 4.0/5.0

Good:

  • Fuel consumption 18.5 Km/L – 20 Km/L (Real World Testing), 25.6 Km/L (Estimated)
  • Safety features (Blind Spot, lane keeping, parking camera)
  • Heated and cooling seats
  • Modern technology (Qi Wireless charging, automatic dimming rear view mirror)
  • Sports mode (Driving feel and Handling becomes better)
  • Tilting side mirror when in reverse
  • Light steering

Bad:

  • Loud engine noise
  • Small rear view
  • Slightly firm ride

Having driven the Ioniq before, my impression was the Ioniq is a comfortable cruiser with light steering, blind spot detection, front & rear parking sensors and parking camera, which is appropriate in a city like Singapore. No car is perfect, and the not so good part was that the rear view looked narrow and ride can be a tiny bit firm over harsh surfaces.
