Hyundai Ioniq 5 Review | A Comprehensive Car Review by Wagonex

The full review of the Hyundai Ioniq 5.

First Impressions

As an illustration of how good the all-electric Hyundai Ioniq 5 really is, it’s the current Auto Express Magazine Car of the Year. It also won gongs for being Best Premium Electric Car, Best Mid-Size Company Car and Best Design.

You won't find a petrol or diesel version of this Hyundai either, it's electric or nothing! 


It's the 214bhp model, and an electric motor drives the rear wheels.

Hyundai reckon you can manage up to 280 miles on a single charge. Oh and talking of charging, the Ioniq 5 can cope with a rapid charger which gives you an 80 per cent battery top-up in under 20 minutes.

These are hugely impressive figures.

Out on the road, the Ioniq 5 handles really well, partly because the chunky battery is slung under the passenger floor giving the car a low centre of gravity. Rides nicely too! (84)


In terms of kit, the Ioniq 5 is fully equipped with sat nav, climate control, parking sensors, LED lights, tinted glass and a rear view camera. Throw in the fact that the interior has a seriously premium feel, looks great with twin digital screens and is extremely comfortable….and that the exterior is ultra-modern yet not too shouty …and you can see why the Hyundai Ioniq 5 has already been a massive success. (89)

You also get a full panoramic view of your rear too, for when you need to slot into an unforgiving parking space!

Let's be real, the Ioniq 5 is not your typical people carrier but if you were to go on a day trip with 4 or 5 people, you'll be surprised by the amount of space, plus there's USB cables in the back and the front so your passengers will always be happy. 

If you don't like this Ioniq 5, have a look at our range of Hyundai.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that if you are looking for an all-electric car which has a premium look and feel, is loaded with kit and can transport you for realistic distances yet be charged in the time it takes to drink a cup of coffee, then this could be the car which makes you finally take the plunge to say goodbye to petrol or diesel power.
