Hyundai Ioniq review - Reliability and safety

Hyundai doesn’t have a great reputation in our Driver Power survey, but a five-year unlimited mileage warranty is attractive

Hyundai has ensured the Ioniq is packed with safety kit, including seven airbags, autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist all as standard, while blind-spot detection, lane follow assist and a rear cross traffic alert are offered on Premium SE versions. 

Euro NCAP tested the Ioniq in 2016 and awarded it a full five stars for safety. Adult and child protection scored 91% and 80%, respectively.

The Ioniq performed well in our 2020 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, finishing in 9th place out of 75 cars. Infotainment systems, safety features and running costs were highlighted as being particularly strong. Hyundai also achieved a decent spot in the manufacturer rankings with 13th position in a field of 30 car makers.

Warranty

Another huge selling point of the Ioniq is its five-year, unlimited mileage warranty. Alongside that class-leading cover, Hyundai will also throw in a 12-year anti-perforation warranty for the bodywork. 

Servicing 

Hyundai offers customers their Service Plan option, which helps to manage fixed maintenance costs. You can configure your service plan based on the model and age of your car, your mileage and plan duration. These details are then used to determine the cost of your plan, bearing in mind recommended service requirements and any necessary MOTs.
