2020 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid for Sale in Springfield, MA
The 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid is a mid-sized four-door hatchback that offers true versatility in alternative fuel sources: gasoline, electricity, or both. This year, Hyundai’s staple fuel-saving favorite receives plenty of notable updates to further sweeten the appeal of its 29-mile all-electric range. For the exterior, this includes a redesigned grille with a mesh pattern, new front and rear bumper fascias, upgraded wheels and side moldings, and LED headlights, taillights, and daytime running lights. Improvements on the inside range from a new center LCD information system and upper and lower instrument panel to redone touchscreen heating and cooling controls. There’s also customizable ambient interior lighting and an available 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation. Other increases in the list of standard features make their way through the trim lineup, and every new Hyundai now receives 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary, factory scheduled maintenance on top of its already stellar warranty offerings.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid is available in three trim levels: SE, SEL, and Limited. Their power system is made up of a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor system, and a large battery pack. As the name implies, this car can be plugged into an external power source to be re-energized, and it takes approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes to go from depletion back to full charge. The powertrain combo for this front-wheel drive hatchback produces a total system output of 139 hp; the transmission is a six-speed dual-clutch automatic. According to EPA estimates, the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid achieves a combined 52 mpg, 119 MPGe (miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent), 29 all-electric miles of range, and 630 miles of total range.
The lowest-cost trim, the SE, comes with LED taillights and daytime running lights, heated side mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, keyless entry with push-button start, and a 3-year trial of Hyundai’s Blue Link Connected Care services. The SEL adds LED headlights, side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The loaded Limited gets a sunroof, power-folding side mirrors with puddle lamps, chrome exterior accents, rear-seat AC vents (mounted in the base of the center console), leather seating, memory functions for the driver’s seat positioning, ambient interior lighting, and an additional Blue Link trial service.
Safety and Technology
As mentioned above, one of the improvements this model year is the expansion of Hyundai’s active-safety technology suite to all trims of the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid. The SE gets forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping and following assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, a driver attention warning monitor, and high beam assist. The SEL adds blind-spot collision warning with rear cross-traffic alert, while the Limited gets highway drive assist and front and rear parking distance warning indicators.
The SE’s infotainment system includes an 8-inch touchscreen, a 4.2-inch LCD instrument cluster, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, satellite and HD radio, smartphone USB input jacks, and a center console USB charge port. The SEL inherits a 7-inch LCD instrument cluster and wireless smartphone charging, while the Limited tops off with a premium eight-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen with navigation.
