If someone asked me 5 years ago if I would own a hybrid car, I never really thought I would own a hybrid car. I guess circumstances change when you need something a little bit more practical that is cheap on gas. Originally I thought about getting an EV like the Leaf, but the range anxiety and the higher price tag convinced me other wise. Hopefully next time around when I am looking at cars 6-8 years from now EV technology is cheaper and has better range. I was surprised with how the 6 speed DCT transmission in the Ioniq actually shifts pretty fast and the paddle shifters work pretty well. I was thrilled it did not have one of those horrid CVT transmissions that many hybrids and economy cars have. The car even on the eco-tires actually handles pretty decent. I guess that independent rear-suspension helps. I know this car is really not as exciting as a muscle car or a hot hatch back, but at the end of the day it still does being a regular car pretty well. One question though, has anyone put aftermarket wheels, lowering springs, and summer times on a Hyundai Ioniq? How bad would the fuel economy be to switch to summer performance tires? I went on Tire Rack supposedly the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S Tires fit the OEM 17 inch wheels on my car. I live in a state where it does not snow so I will probably switch to summer tires once the stock ones wear out. Also make sure to post any modified Hyundai Ioniq. I am interested to see if the car has any aftermarket scene in the US or globally.
