Design

Upfront, you are greeted with an array of pixel-inspired lights which if anything, look super sharp, neat and futuristic. The front design is very minimalistic, with a sharp look and bold character lines on the bonnets. The hood has all but 2 sharp lines which taper in between the pair pixel headlights on either side, which is then continued in the opposite direction, till the bumper, making it stand out. The lights themselves are solid quadrilateralish, with no curves whatsoever.

The front sets the tone just perfect. The sides are flanked by a set of massive 20” wheels. Yes, 20, the biggest ever on a Hyundai Electric vehicle! It gets cladding on the arches with the alloy design further reminiscing the parametric pixel design language. It also gets flush door handles which keeps the side profile clean. The rear is the same story. It somehow looks a tad bit taller and boxier from the rear. The taillights are a solid rectangle with a pair on either side.

In terms of features, it gets an advanced head-up display featuring augmented reality functions, advanced driver assistance features, electrically adjustable front seats, ambient lighting, connected car tech, and ventilated seats.

Hyundai claims the Ioniq 5 can be charged from 10% to 80% in around 18 minutes using a 350kW fast charger. Apart from power the Ioniq 5 also offers an impressive range.
