Mechanical Features and Fuel Economy
Plug-ins differ from conventional hybrids in that they use all of their electric charge first and then switch to burning gasoline, whereas the traditional hybrid switches between electric and gasoline power according to the driving situation (generally, electric power where more torque is required, and gasoline power at cruising speed). The 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid gets a 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine that collaborates with an inter-permanent magnet synchronous motor. This hybrid system puts out a combined 139 horsepower and gets an EPA-rated 52 combined MPG and 119 MPGe (miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent). The 2020 Ioniq Plug-In’s all-electric range is about 29 miles, after which it calls on its gas-burning engine and 11.4-gallon fuel tank. Hyundai has also made it convenient to charge the battery, offering several at-home solutions, including a quick-charging 220/240V Level 2 unit that will top off the battery in just over two hours.
The 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid is offered in three trim levels: SE, SEL, and Limited. The base SE comes with a pleasing list of standard features, including 16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, push-button start, heated mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, USB ports, a Bluetooth hands-free phone system, three months of complimentary SiriusXM, and a six-speaker sound system. The SEL trim adds chrome exterior and cabin trim, LED headlights, a 10-way power driver seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink, a wireless charging pad, and more advanced active safety features. The Limited trim really steps up the standard features, coming with a sunroof, power-folding mirrors, leather upholstery, the aforementioned 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment display, a navigation system, an eight-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system, a cargo cover, and more driver-assist technology (highway drive assist and front and rear parking distance warning indicators).
There’s a lot to love about the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, including its standard safety features. All trims come standard with advanced driver aids such as forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, smart cruise control with stop-and-go, high beam assist, and driver attention warning. The SEL trim also gets blind-spot collision warning and rear cross-traffic collision warning. At the top, the Limited trim tacks on highway driving assist and both forward and reverse parking distance warning.
