Hyundai Ioniq Turbo Render Defeats Its Purpose, But Whatever...

With #Hyundai's exciting new Ioniq range consisting of a Hybrid, Plug-In Hybrid and an EV model, what good would a turbocharged petrol version do?

Naturally, this render from X-Tomi is meant to depict said Turbo model, sporting a more aggressive exterior featuring a body kit, lowered suspension, blacked-out grille and a couple other elements that would probably help it stand out more than its real-world counterparts.

The power unit is hypothetical as well, though we'd imagine it would be a little more capable than the 141 PS Hybrid model, which utilizes a 43.5 PS electric motor connected to a 105 PS 1.6-liter petrol engine for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 10.8 seconds.

The all-electric version isn't that much more impressive in a straight line, with a 28kWh battery pack feeding the 122 PS electric motor which also has 295 Nm (218 lb-ft) of torque. It can get to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.9 seconds.

For something like a sporty turbocharged Ioniq, Hyundai could utilize the 200 HP 1.6-liter turbo GDI unit that's making its way into the Elantra Sport, though it would sort of defeat the purpose of the entire Ioniq lineup, wouldn't it?
