    I love this design, and now that I know it's bigger than a normal hatchback it's even more interesting. It doesn't look so big from the pictures.

    When I saw this video 📹, I was thinking to check ✔ it out and now this is actually my first car I'm going to get tbh, but im still going to get a MINI Cooper Countryman and this car only to go into the ULEZ and Congestion Charge if im correct, but the ioniq 5 I will probably use it more than the MINI so im going to have to take a big think about this.

    all very good that it has 5 USB plugs for example, but in reality electric car owners even start shutting down their radio and ventilation when they see the batteries deplete much faster than expected. I've been in an electric VW Golf once, and every mile we rode, the charge depleted about 3 miles. It made the driver so nervous and since he feared we wouldn't reach our destination, he shut down all he could to save electricity.

    3:40 - The main reason for the reduced capacity of the front boot on four-wheel-drive versions of the Ioniq 5 is because most of the space underneath is taken up by the front motor. That’s why rear-wheel-drive only versions have a bigger front boot than the four-wheel-drives, as they have no front motor taking up space.

    The problem with that auto-parking feature is the cars on either side, whose owners are now stuffed by the kn*b who has parked too close for them to open their doors. You just can't do that to people unless you know for a fact that they can deal with it.

    @Larry Chats "Price" I haven't seen prices yet, but I'm fairly certain that this vehicle will be less than a comparable Tesla. This really should be compared with the model X which tops up around $120,000 CAN. I suspect the top Ioniq 5 will be $70,000 for a top of the line model. "Speed" Not interested. "Turn radius" Really? In your top three? What about build quality? How about having real buttons? How about looks? Teslas REALLY aged poorly.

    I know everyone seems to love the look and I like the look of the back and the front but I really don't like how it looks from the side. If it didn't have all those extra cuts/slashes on the side I really think this would perfect. Either way, it is definitely worth a test drive due to everything else it seems to have going for it.

    I love the looks of this car. I think it would look even better in white. The solar roof is a nice addition too. Imagine having parked your car in your workplace's parking lot for 8-10 hours under the Greek scorching sun. Even if you harvest 1-2 Km of range every hour, this can amount to 10-20 free Km a day! Infotainment system though is nowhere near Tesla I'm afraid :(

    Glossed over the self driving feature as if it didn't matter, which means it sucks. Only showed us a "self parking" job that was so simple that it was downright unnecessary and would probably take longer to use the "self parking" than to do it myself? Come on. If they're limited or aren't very good, show me that too. It's supposed to be a review, not a sales pitch. In either case, looks like a very good job by Hyundai for most of what was actually detailed - except for how UGLY it is.

    Can't imagine trying to take a nap with that seat reclined and the head restraint pushing my head so far forward like many cars today. It's like forward head posture has become normal.

  • 99SamIAm99


    9 dagar sedan

    Taylor Anderson "It's like forward head posture has become normal." I've got a Kia Sportage. It has the same kind of head rest. If you think about getting in a crash, you don't want your head to be too far from the headrest. So I get why they did this. But it can be annoying. Try drinking the last bit from a water bottle with that thing.

    Looks good in that colour but other colours I find all that grey/silver plastic just draws my attention and I hate it. Overall seems like a great EV. Some of the gadgetry I could live without such as electric rear seats (save the weight & more stuff to go wrong out of warranty) and I don't like the displays which just look a bit cheap, bland looking. Currently I get 5.4 miles/kwh from a 120AH i3, I'd like to see that improved, although of course the i3 is lighter than still the majority of EV's so with a large battery in the Ioniq there's that weight penalty but if it can get 5miles/kwh that's good I think.

    Rather than a recliner, what I think would have been clutch for an EV is having the steering wheel retract and a fold out table so you can eat or use a laptop comfortably. Grabbing lunch and then going to a recharge station is something I would definitely do.

    Great vid,superbly presented and the Ioniq is certainly a great electric car. But it is also a big car and its width can be very awkward with your standard garage and in narrow parking garages and some European town centres. It seems to me better suited for the American market.
