The jury of 23 journalists of the French car magazine L‘Argus praised the IONIQ’s attractive design and spaciousness as well as the high quality of its driving and safety assistance systems.


“This is the second Car of the Year Award in a row for the Hyundai IONIQ – first Norway and now France. This reinforces our conviction that the IONIQ is the best-value eco-car in Europe. The line-up including the IONIQ Hybrid offers the best warranty and is fully equipped for a very competitive price and with no compromises as regards design, driving pleasure or connectivity.

“This award recognises a vehicle that is unique amongst its peers – the All-New IONIQ and its three eco-friendly powertrains.

Lionel French KeoghManaging Director of Hyundai Motor France


The Hyundai IONIQ is the first vehicle to offer three electrified powertrains within one body type: hybrid, all-electric, and plug-in hybrid.

The line-up provides eco-conscious mobility without compromise in great design, fun-to-drive, smart connectivity or advanced safety.
