Reliability and safety are two strong suits for the Ioniq Hybrid, with impressive independent crash-test results, a good brand reputation and a long warranty all contributing to owners' peace of mind.

Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid reliability & problems

The Hyundai Ioniq has put in a solid performance with customers, coming 27th out of the top 75 models ranked in the 2021 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey. It received an above-average rating for reliability and running costs, and you told us it was cheap to service, tax and insure.

Owners were also mostly happy with Hyundai as a brand, but its position of 16th out of 29 manufacturers in 2021 was a drop on previous years. In addition, 21% of owners reporting faults within the first year of ownership is higher than we’d like to see, and compares unfavourably with Skoda and Toyota’s 14% and 15% respective fault rates.

Safety

The Ioniq promises to be a seriously safe car. Despite Euro NCAP making its crash-test criteria more stringent recently, the Ioniq scored the maximum five stars, not least thanks to all the driver aids it has as standard. Automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, seven airbags and a space-saver spare tyre are included on all Ioniqs. Premium SE adds adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane-following assistance and rear cross-traffic alert.
