Hyundai IONIQ 5 – Our first impressions!



Despite the production crisis, the automotive world is on fire when it comes to evolution! Appears more and more with major technological innovations, especially in the electrification area. A great example of this is really the new Hyundai IONIQ 5! An EV (Electric Vehicle / Electric Vehicle) that aims to redefine the standards of the automotive world in terms of sustainable mobility by bringing a luxury car, competent and of course with a lot of autonomy.

The truth is, however, that we already had the opportunity to be one of the first to test the new Hyundai IONIQ 5 … spoilers! The first impression is really good!

After all, we have the first model from the IONIQ brand here, a series that is only dedicated to the increasingly coveted 100% electric models. One notorious thing about the most important part of an electric car, battery capacity. In addition to 72.6 kWh, this is an extremely efficient battery, which of course leads to luxurious autonomy. But we’ll talk a little more about it in a moment.

In addition, however, we have the first Hyundai car to receive Autonomous Driving Level 2 as standard. Something is also becoming more and more important and necessary for the life of motorists.

Design and driving

Well, in this area there is always a mix of opinions as taste is not discussed. However, given the current auto market, I think we have a vehicle here that can please both Greeks and Trojans. In short, an urban crossover with very generous dimensions.

So abroad we have a lot of attention to detail. In fact, the front is full of innovations, from flaps that open and close to increase cooling as needed, to the glowing design of the headlights and the “clamshell” bonnet.

However, on the side we have lines that highlight the entire design of the car and are complemented by very interesting lighting around almost the entire electric vehicle.

Inside, the manufacturer finally presented the new cabin Intelligent living space. In addition to the modern design, what is particularly impressive is the usable interior space in the car. In fact, it’s not just the amount of space, it’s even the attention to the comfort and usefulness of everything that has been implemented in the car. That said, we have a moving center console that is very easy to adjust, and even the rear seats are tiltable and movable so you can adjust everything to your liking.


First of all, it must be said that the handling of the new IONIQ 5 is really very good. After all, we have a lot of driving comfort without annoying noises inside. We are also talking about an electric motor 217 hp and 350 Nm torque instant, which always guarantees an agile response behavior even with a weight of 1990kg.

In fact, it accelerates from 0-100 km / h in “only” 7.4 seconds, which impresses everyone when you consider the size and weight of the electric vehicle.

Well, in addition to all the numbers, it must be said that we can always count on a very agile direction, guaranteed by the huge 3 meter wheelbase and to the new E-GMP platform.

Overall, the comfort and the quality of workmanship are absolutely excellent. To give even the largest “turnip” the confidence that the “suddenly appeared” hole in the road will not leave a dent and will be overcome with all confidence.

But since not everything can be good if you are looking for a drive that relies on dynamism or sportiness, you will not find it here. Yes, the model offers multiple driving modes like that echo, Comfort, Sports and snow. However, although in Sports If you notice a faster pedal response, it’s easy to see that the IONIQ 5 shouldn’t be a sports car. And actually it doesn’t have to be.

Some important points to mention!

Hence it is important to mention that Hyundai is based on Introduction of more recycled materials in the manufacture of each model. That said, the goal is to reuse and reduce pollution in the manufacture of each IONIQ 5.

For the most demanding, in terms of autonomy, the models currently available, as already mentioned, have one 72.6 kWh battery. Something that even guarantees 686 km by loading in urban use or 481 km in combined use.

But since not everything has to do with autonomy, it is important to note that the new Global Electric Modular Platform (E-GMP) it also guarantees news related to loading. After all, we have the capacity up to 800V and 350 kW power. Ie, In real terms, we have a battery life of 80% in just 18 minutes or 100 km in just 5 minutes. In fact, it is entirely possible to charge other electric cars with the IONIQ 5, and all thanks to the “Vehicle to Load” technology, which basically transforms the new Hyunday car into an authentic power bank.

Finally, even though we’re 100% electric, we have 527 liters of luggage space or 1587 liters with reclining seats. We even have one “Frunk” or a front trunk up to 57 liters, ideal for stowing your sports bag and of course the charging cable.

Conclusion – first impressions

In conclusion, I have to say that I got very good impressions of the new Hyundai IONIQ 5. Here we have a model that guarantees very balanced specifications, which in the end results in an efficient vehicle with autonomy in giving and selling. In addition, we also have a comfortable ride.

In terms of performance, while a little bit behind what an enthusiast is looking for, I think it is more than enough for the vast majority of drivers. All this with enormous comfort and an immediate response thanks to its electric motorization.

Note, however, that all of this comes at a price, starting at € 50,990 in IONIQ 5. A price that might seem high … But the important thing to note here is that this includes a 7 year unlimited mileage guarantee, an 8 year high voltage battery guarantee, 7 years breakdown assistance and 7 years annual checks.

Then there are also those who reiterate the idea that parents need to take care of their children and control what they normally see.

But there are also more extreme positions that worry many fans of the Netflix series. They are calling for the series to end immediately and sequels to be canceled.
