Where once there was a single variant, now there are two, with Hyundai expanding the IONIQ 5 range to a duo. Previously offered in a single spec in either all-wheel or two-wheel drive, there’s a host of of new tech too.
Across the range, the IONIQ 5 gains new standard features such as an augmented reality head-up display, which particularly enhances navigation, and vehicle-to-load (V2L) functionality. The latter allows the car to run or charge other powered equipment.
The new range kicks off with the entry level DYNAMIQ, which now features 481km or range, and operates as a rear-wheel drive, with a single 160kW electric motor. Starting from $69,900 plus on-roads, it’s equipped with 19-inch wheels.
It also grabs a smart power tailgate, Bose premium audio system, and 10-way powered front seats with lumbar support and heating. Joining it is the AWD TECHNIQ, which adds additional tech and the option of a fixed glass vision roof.
You also get 20-inch wheels, rear window sunshades, ventilated front seats, memory seats both front and rear, and powered rear seats. It’s powered by two motors, with a 155kW unit at the rear, and 70kW at the front.
Its range remains the same, at 430km. This top variant will set you back $77,500 plus on-roads. Both models come with Hyundai’s ultra-fast charging capabilities, with 400V or 800V ensuring you can potentially charge to 80 per cent in as little as 18 minutes.
Hyundai’s SmartSense safety technology spans the range, as does a spacious and futuristic cabin. Servicing is every 12 months, or 15,000km, whichever comes first. With the exception of 60,000km/48 months, all services are capped at $220 (up to 75,000km).
