Along with its six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, this powertrain gives you up to 58 mpg for driving the city streets of McKinney and 60 mpg on the Texas highways.

You could also opt for the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid, which features the same powertrain as the hybrid. Along with up to 52 mpg for combined driving, you get an all-electric range of 29 miles. If most of your journeys are local, you’ll be making very few stops at the gas station.
