New Scarlet Red Hybrid Limited in Brooklyn, New York
Been lurking in the forum for over a year waiting for my daughter to start driving and take my beloved 2003 Mazda Protege5. Finally, she started getting serious about it, and so I pulled the trigger on the Ioniq Hybrid.
Wanted a Red (like my Mazda). Not much choice at nearby dealers, though. Had to drive all the way almost to Philadelphia to Conicelli Hyundai (100 miles from home, but they seemed to have every possible combination of trims and colors).
Now just need to grab my daughter as the second driver and bring the new car home.
Then will start getting used to it.
On a test drive, Ioniq felt quite different. Protege is like a bicycle, Ioniq feels much more substantial.
A funny coincidence, while it is very hard to meet an Ioniq on the streets (I can probably count on my fingers the number of times I've seen one), on the way to buy the Ioniq, I was driving behind an Ioniq on Pennsylvania Turnpike for quite a few miles.
