2018 Hyundai Ioniq Recognized as Women's World Car of the Year at the Busan International Motor Show

As before, so this week. The innovative trio comprising the Hyundai hybrid and EV lineup, a first of its kind in the world, sporting a choice of hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric powertrains, once more garnered a Women's World Car of the Year Supreme Award, this time, for a new model year.

And, as annual awards go, this was significant. After all, a jury of 25 prominent female automotive journalists from around the world presides over them, and out of 400 competitors, they asserted, 2018 Ioniq was "a standout [and] clear winner." The new hybrid mid-size car even went on to become the winner of the event's Green Car category, too, with an eco-friendly, aerodynamic airflow-conducive design praised for its ultra-high efficiency.

The pros at our Hyundai dealer here in Webster surely get where the acclaimed panel was coming from. The new Ioniq Hybrid SEL and Limited occupy a privileged position at our Ridge Road showroom, owing to a host of features that stand out for us just as well.


  • For one, Proximity Key entry for near seamless entry, with the convenience of push-button start to get up and go
  • Secondly, luxurious premium cloth and leather seating options depending on your choice of trim, with leather steering-wheel and shifter appointments and standard heated front seating for our chilly western New York outings
  • A spirited 139-net-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine that makes possible up to an EPA-estimated 55 mpg in a city like our Rochester neighbor, 54 mpg down a highway like our 104, and 55 mpg combined
  • The ability to recoup kinetic energy for driving use thanks to standard regenerative braking
  • Driver-assist features like standard blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert and lane change assist, simplifying keeping an eye on your surroundings while maintaining course
  • Options for steering clear of both other drivers and accidents, including such as automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a lane keep assist feature, and smart cruise control
  • A 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen-equipped display audio infotainment system to keep entertainment and connectivity control within reach
  • Standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for in-dash access to and control of smartphone features
  • Available navigation for directional peace of mind for the Greece day trip
  • Optional eight-speaker Infinity® Premium Audio with Clari-Fi&#trade; Music Restoration Technology to deliver road-trip soundtracks that keep the whole gang occupied


Of course, these aren't to mention stellar warranty coverage. Purchase or lease a new 2018 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid here in our greater Rochester area, and you gain a 5-year, 60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty, 10 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage, a 7-year, unlimited-mile anti-perforation warranty, 10 years or 100,000 miles of coverage for hybrid system components, 24/7 roadside assistance for 5 years and unlimited miles, and a lifetime hybrid battery warranty. That's a true testament to quality. Check one out for yourself here at Vision Hyundai Webster, and see what the distinguished ladies of WWCOTY are talking about!
