It's a cold winter evening. You are traveling from an office near Ithaca and Vestal, NY, or Sayre, PA, to a basketball game at the Carrier Dome but don't have time to stop for gas on the way.

If you are driving a Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid, you may not have to pull over on I-81. Its efficient design helps you travel farther between stops for gas. The team at Maguire Hyundai prepared a 2021 Hyundai IONIQ review to help you learn more about the hybrid sedan.

An Efficient Playbook

How can the sedan's hybrid design help you skip gas stations on the way to the big game? The 2021 Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid Blue has a generous EPA-estimated fuel economy of 58 city/60 highway MPG

Its 1.6L GDI DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine isn't the only aspect of its design that creates more efficiency. The Blue trim of the hybrid is equipped with:

  • Regenerative braking
  • Active grille shutters
  • Integrated rear spoiler

The hybrid's aerodynamic frame turns your trip into a fast break. Active grille shutters and an integrated rear spoiler help you travel effectively on the open road.

Regenerative braking converts the energy of every stop into power. This recharges the battery on the hybrid. It's just one example of how the IONIQ Hybrid creates an optimal driving experience.

Driving the Lane With Confidence

The road to the arena is familiar. However, you can plot a more direct route with the available 10.25-inch navigation system with a high-resolution touchscreen. As the last rays of the sunset dip behind the horizon, you can flip on the available LED headlights to catch a glimpse of the road ahead.

Our review of the 2021 Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid discovered features that help you drive with confidence. These features include safety features that help you stay in your lane on the highway:

  • Lake Keeping Assist (LKA)
  • Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FCA-PED)

These features extend to an infotainment system built to incorporate safety into your driving. How can you find which lot that your buddies parked in? Wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® can send and receive messages, allowing you to stay in touch and keep your eyes on the road.

Packing the Paint

After the final horn sounds, it's time to walk to the parking lot and head home. Where can you fit the cooler from your tailgate?

The IONIQ has 26.5 cubic feet of cargo volume. That is not only enough room for groceries, but there is also plenty of room to pack a few bags for weekend getaways.

Your splurge at the concession stand means that you'll need space for that foam finger, too. Lay it across the backseat of your 2021 Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid. Both the front and rear seats have convenient dimensions for your passengers:





39.1 inches

37.4 inches


42.2 inches

35.7 inches

Shoulder Room

56.1 inches

55 inches

If you have passengers in the rear of the IONIQ, 55 inches of shoulder room gives them plenty of room to operate smart devices on the way home. Are you interested in checking out the creative design of the hybrid in person now?
