Design and Practicality
Clean lines and minimalism is the design language of the IONIQ 5. Electric car design follows a distinct futuristic vibe and this particular Hyundai is no different.
A unique clamshell bonnet spans the entire width of the car, which reduces panel gaps for a clean, high-tech look. Aero-optimised wheels further echo the piercing, futuristic design theme, further cementing the IONIQ 5's ability to turn heads. Trick LED lighting also ensures this is one fine-looking electric car.
It's not just a pretty face either, with enhanced practicality combining the best blend of hatchback and SUV practicality. Therefore, 5-doors come as standard, along with 588 litres of front and rear boot space.
Cabin space is also vast, with relaxation reclining seats, and plenty of space for five people to enjoy the IONIQ 5 in complete comfort.
Technology and Safety
IONIQ 5 offers a striking digital interior full of technology and safety. A crystal clear 12.3-inch infotainment screen is joined by a matching 12.3-inch instrument cluster for a slick and high-tech look that comes standard.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come standard, along with being able to turn the windscreen into an ultra-impressing 44-inch advanced heads-up display, to safely guide you in busy cities.
As for safety, the IONIQ 5 is also the first Hyundai with Level 2 autonomous safety technology. It also includes other cool safety technology such as lane assist, adaptive cruise control, autonomous parking and high beam assist.
The IONIQ 5 also comes complete with the excellent 5-year, unlimited mileage Hyundai warranty, along with an 8-year battery warranty too.

Being a fully-electric car, there are no engines, but electric motor and battery combinations. Cars will be capable of around 300 miles between charges, depending on specification.
The headline dual-motor features all-wheel drive with a total power of 302bhp. This version can cover 0-62mph in just 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 115mph.
Two battery sizes are available, a 72.6kWh and 58kWh. Both are available with all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. As well as the dual motor 302bhp version, there is also a single motor 167bhp version available too, which still manages the 0 to 62mph dash in a brisk 8.5 seconds.
The IONIQ 5 features an 800V battery system, meaning ultra-fast charging will be possible.
