For yet another year, the NHTSA has not subjected the Hyundai Ioniq for crash safety review. However, the IIHS has been pretty thorough in its review of the 2021 Ioniq Hybrid. In every test conducted, the organization awarded the hatchback a top score of Good. In 2019, the IIHS also awarded the car its Top Safety Pick award.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
The standard list of safety features on the Ioniq isn't astounding, but it covers all the bases. Each model comes with ABS, stability and traction control, and seven airbags: dual front, driver knee, front side, and side curtain. The base model starts out with lane-keep assist, a driver attention system, a rearview camera, high-beam assist, and forward-collision avoidance. The SE adds blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, while the SEL further adds pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, and lane-following assist; the PHEV SE has all these Hybrid SEL assistance features too. The Limited rounds out the standard safety features with highway drive assist, and front and rear parking sensors.

As yet, no recalls have been issued for the 2021 model - or for the 2022 model by the time of writing. There weren't any recalls for 2020 either. The last time the Ioniq Hybrid was called back was in 2019 for the possibility that the rear wheel lug nuts may be loose. While the standard limited warranty is only valid for 60,000 miles/60 months, the powertrain, hybrid components, and battery are all covered for 100,000 miles/120 months. Unlimited roadside assistance is offered for the first 60 months of ownership.
