2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Review: Specs and Pricing

2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5

2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5: Overview

A brand-new all-electric compact crossover with cutting-edge technology, a futuristic appearance, and a flexible interior is the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5. The 2022 Ioniq 5 is the first EV model to use the Ioniq label, which was originally intended to be a Hyundai subbrand. It offers outstanding charging rates (up to 350 kW) and an estimated 303-mile driving range.

The EV Ute has a power range of 168 to 320 hp and is available with rear- or all-wheel drive. The Eco-friendly Ioniq 5 is a well-rounded package deserving of an Editors' Choice award and an ideal match for our 2022 EV of the Year thanks to its tech-focused dashboard, reclining front seats with footrests, and ample passenger capacity.

Pricing of 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5

Hyundai Ioniq 5 prices start at $43,650. The Ioniq 5's basic pricing isn't excessive when compared to comparable all-electric SUVs like the Ford Mustang Mach-E ($42,895), Volkswagen ID. 4 ($39,995), and Tesla Model Y ($58,990). The MSRP for the Ioniq 5 Limited starts at $50,600.

Which one to Purchase?

With a standard-range battery and rear-wheel drive, the 2022 Ioniq 5 starts at slightly over $40,000. Nevertheless, we believe the SEL model, which has a 320-hp dual-motor configuration and an EPA-rated 256-mile driving range, is the one to choose.

It also has a larger battery pack. A hands-free power liftgate, faux-leather seats, ambient inside lighting, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging, and more are included as standard.

2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5: Power and Performance

The Ioniq 5 has an all-electric drivetrain with a range of power options. A single electric motor installed at the back of the vehicle and the standard-range battery together provide 168 horsepower. The rear-drive arrangement produces 225 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque with the longer-range battery, which according to Hyundai will accelerate the Ioniq 5 to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds. The all-wheel-drive model has 320 horsepower and a significant 446 pound-feet of torque, making it far more potent and quicker. At our test track, it accelerated to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

The Ioniq 5 we tested proved to be smooth on a variety of road surfaces, and its broad for EV tires paired with a low center of gravity made it seem agile moving side to side. We simply wish the suspension was a little stiffer and the steering offered greater feedback.

2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5: Range, Charging, and Battery Life

The Ioniq 5's range with the basic 58.0-kWh battery pack is predicted to be 220 miles. The larger 77.4 kWh pack has a range of 303 miles with a single engine and 256 miles with two. On our real-world range test at 75 mph, the dual-motor model covered 210 miles on a single charge. When hooked into a DC fast charger, Hyundai claims the larger battery can be recharged from 10 to 80 percent in about 18 minutes; it is also said to add 68 miles in about five minutes.

2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5: Interior and Comfort

The Ioniq 5's inside features a tech-savvy environment with a digital dashboard and a significant amount of Eco-friendly materials, albeit it isn't as artistic as the cabin previewed by the Hyundai 45 Concept. One fancy feature is a head-up display with augmented reality that can project navigation instructions onto the windshield. The all-electric small crossover makes the most of its packing by having a floor that is fully flat for the most amount of the passenger and baggage room.

While the Ioniq is charging, passengers may unwind in the front seats, which also recline and have footrests. The 5 has more front and rear seat passenger space thanks to a wheelbase that is longer than the Hyundai Palisade's third row.

On top-spec Limited trims, the spacious center console slides back and forth between the front seats and features plenty of storage space. Six carry-on bags, plus 20 with the seatbacks stowed, fit behind the back seats of the vehicle. For comparison, the hybrid Hyundai Tucson's top speed was 22.

2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5: Connectivity

The Ioniq subbrand, according to Hyundai, promotes connected living, and the Ioniq 5 includes a wide range of cutting-edge connectivity and infotainment capabilities. A 12.0-inch touchscreen and a 12.0-inch digital gauge cluster are located on the same dash panel, however, the former serves as the center of entertainment. This includes cutting-edge voice recognition technology and smartphone-integrated apps like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
