Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid reliability & problems

It’s hard to comment specifically on the Ioniq Hybrid (or other Ioniq models), which has a lot of technology that’s fairly new to the brand. However, owners are happy with the Hyundai experience, ranking the brand 10th out of 27 manufacturers in our sister title Auto Express' 2019 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey.

Just 7.2% reported faults within the first year of ownership and they're also pleased with running costs, where Hyundai came ninth, as well as interiors and comfort, where Hyundai was placed eighth.

The Ioniq repeated this strong showing in the 2020 running of the survey, coming home ninth out of the top 75 cars ranked. Hyundai as a brand also did well in this most recent survey; consumers said it was the 13th-best manufacturer out of 30 looked at.

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.
