We got the very first and exclusive spy shots of the future Hyundai Ioniq Facelift courtesy of SB-Medien.
This prototype has been caught hot weather testing in the US while we had a chance to photograph the car parked in front of a hotel.
The Hyundai Ioniq was the first dedicated hybrid from Hyundai-Kia alongside with the Kia Niro.
Revealed three years ago, this first spy pictures told us that a mid-life facelift isn’t that far away.
Our pictures reveal a completely new grill and small changes in the front and rear bumper as well as a new graphic in the head and tail lights.
The Ioniq was launched as a high bet from Hyundai, to start his 2020 eco car plan, and they delivered 3 eco cars in 1 with a Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and EV variants. So that was a good start.
Compared to Toyota Prius, where Hyundai has been inspired when they created the Ioniq, the Hyundai model uses a Dual Clutch Transmission instead of a CVT.
No more details revealed yet, but the Ioniq facelift couldn’t arrive until earlier 2019.
