2022 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid & Plug-in Hybrid

2022 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid & Plug-in Hybrid

Are these the ultimate Toyota Prius rivals?

Switching to a complete EV might be a bit of a stretch, since EVs are costlier alternatives to gas-operated regular cars. But, fear not. If you have Toyota Prius on your list, then you must add both the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid on it. Plus, the Prius lineup is still suffering the ugly design approach of Toyota, while Hyundai has kept the Ioniq Hybrid neat and exciting, minus the performance. Unfortunately, Hyundai decided to pull the plug on the full-electric Ioniq to make way for the Ioniq 5 EV. A 1.6-liter naturally aspirated four-pot remains the beating heart of all the Ioniq hybrids, along with an electric motor. But, what impresses us is the outstanding fuel economy the whole range can deliver, especially the MHEV Blue trim. A whopping 60 miles per gallon on the highway has been rated by the EPA, which is about seven miles per gallon more than what the Prius can deliver, although being better in performance. Both, the Plug-in Hybrid and the Hybrid have good-looking cabins, and the overall experience is a lot better than the competition, we would say. So, should you get yourself either of the Ioniq hybrids? We are here to confirm that.
