Hyundai Adds New Ioniq Hybrid To Lineup

The Hyundai Ioniq has always been an EV, with the only true hybrid in the brand’s lineup being a variant of the popular Sonata. However, Hyundai is changing this for the 2017 model year. The new 58-mpg Ioniq Hybrid is being added to the new model variants for the EV, including the pure EV version and also a new Ioniq plug-in hybrid, with the option to drive in both hybrid and EV mode. This move will give Hyundai customers and compact car fans more options when it comes to the green car segment.

The new Ioniq Hybrid has actually already arrived at dealerships across the country, including ours at Rex Perry Hyundai. If you’re interested in the EV model, that one’s only available onsite in California, but you can get your hands on it by special order. The Plug-In Hybrid, however, will not be making its way to the public until later this year when it launches as a 2018 model year.

The new Ioniq Hybrid was engineered to deliver a smooth and fun driving experience purposefully by the team at Hyundai, who wanted to create a hybrid that did more than just save on gas. The Plug-In Hybrid model’s driving modes will even include a “Sport” option for drivers looking for something with a little more spirited ride. So, make sure you stop by Rex Perry Hyundai to check out the new Ioniq Hybrid.

The New Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback

In the United States, we tend to favor our family sedans and small crossovers. Compact, five-door cars aren’t usually seen as a top-seller here. In Europe, however, hatchbacks are the more popular choice. Hyundai, however, has faith that the hatch will bounce back, and they have a not-so-secret tool to facilitate this: the all-new 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback.

The new Elantra Hatchback recently made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show. It has a sophisticated, Euro-inspired appearance with sleek curves and a wider, longer, and lower body. At 55 cubic-feet of interior space, the 2018 Elantra GT Hatchback offers more room than its previous generations and any of its competitors.

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback - Nacogdoches, TXThe Elantra Hatchback will come in two different trims, the GT and the GT Sport. The GT will be equipped with a 2.0-liter engine good for 162 horsepower, while the GT Sport will have a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that boasts 201 horsepower. This peppy acceleration is a fun type of performance often associated with hatchbacks, and one that Hyundai hopes will draw more people towards the hatch.

In fact, Hyundai is anticipating the new hatchback to make up more than 15% of Elantra sales once it hits the market. We look forward to offering this new, modern hatchback at Rex Perry Hyundai and can’t wait to test drive it ourselves!
