The Hyundai Ioniq has been named the most highly rated vehicle for owning in the UK according to the Honest John Satisfaction Index 2020.

The Ioniq secured an average satisfaction rating of 93.7% from owners, overall, making it a standout contender in the survey. 

Every year, the Honest John Satisfaction Index surveys 10,000 car owners for their feedback on the models they own, individually rating them for their comfort, technology, flexibility among other factors. 

Ashley Andrew, the MD of Hyundai Motor UK, welcomed the survey. He said: “Awards such as this, voted for by the people that actually live with and drive our cars day-in and day-out are an absolute privilege to receive. Thousands of Hyundai workers throughout the world work hard to develop vehicles that deliver for our consumers on every level; desirable, good to drive, reliable, comfortable, packed full of technology and affordable to run. This from the Honest John Satisfaction Index is a perfect validation of their efforts.” 

The Hyundai Ioniq was first introduced in 2016, becoming the first car in the world offered with three separate electrified powertrains, which are Ioniq Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and Electric.

In 2019, the Ioniq line-up was updated with a new exterior design, new technology and even greater practicality. All models include new front and rear bumpers, headlamps and tail lamps, while interior changes to New Ioniq included a comprehensive remodification of the dashboard with upgraded materials and finishes, updated instrument cluster, cabin mood lighting and all new touch type temperature and multimedia controls. 

The three separate powertrains – Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and Electric – have also been optimized, providing 193 miles of zero emissions range in the Electric, 32 miles of electric range (and over 660 miles total range) in the Plug-in Hybrid and CO2 emissions as less as 102g/km in the Hybrid.

In the UK, Hyundai Ioniq starts from £23,840 ($29,086).
