The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is exceptional on many levels. Firstly, its futuristic good looks ensure that it stands out in a crowded crossover/SUV marketplace. Secondly, it boasts an extremely spacious and upscale cabin. This practical car is 100% electric too, which means it’s very cost-effective to run and maintain – and of course, it produces no CO2 or NOx emissions whatsoever.
Also, the vehicle’s electric powertrain delivers 0-62mph in just 5.1 seconds and a rather impressive 315-mile range upon a single charge (72 kWh models).
This desirable crossover harnesses the best qualities of a family hatchback and an SUV, offering the practicality of the former while possessing the sporty aesthetics of the latter. Its elevated ride height helps provide the vehicle with extra kerb appeal, and along with wide-opening rear doors, they ensure that access is an absolute breeze.
Though it’s not necessarily apparent from the outside, the Ioniq 5 is reassuringly big on the inside, offering more passenger space than, say, the Hyundai Tucson. A completely flat floor further emphasises the roomy, airy look and feel of the interior.
All around the cabin, you’ll find stowage compartments that are ideal for placing drinks and other personal items. Some of these are very spacious indeed, such as a generously proportioned compartment located beneath the centre console and a pleasingly capacious glovebox.
This roomy five-seater features a 527-litre boot too, which is considerably larger than is offered by the Volkswagen Golf (147 litres larger, in fact). With rear seats folded, cargo capacity expands to an impressive 1,587 litres.
Tech highlights include a 12.3-inch instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, satellite navigation, DAB radio, Apple/Android smartphone integration and wireless charging. Should you opt for the second-tier Ultimate trim, you’ll also be able to savour the audiophile delights of a seven-speaker BOSE premium sound system.
As you’d expect from such a progressive vehicle, the Ioniq 5 comes with a maximum five-star Euro NCAP rating – and a host of safety features. Included are dual LED low-high-beam projection headlights, Smart Cruise Control, Blind-spot Collision-avoidance Assist and Highway Drive Assist. Another standard-issue inclusion is Dynamic Parking Guidance, which utilises Parking Distance Warning and a rear-view monitor.
