Hyundai has ensured the Ioniq is packed with safety kit, including seven airbags, autonomous emergency 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 per cent and 80 per cent, respectively.

The Ioniq finished down in 65th place (out of 75 cars) in our 2022 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, although Hyundai itself managed 11th spot (out of 29 brands) in the manufacturer ratings.

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.
