Eco-friendly elements fill the Ioniq 5’s interior, where the dashboard is completely digital and the seats are made from recycled plastics and other materials. Just one fantastical element is a head-up display that uses augmented reality to project navigation directions onto the windshield.
There is also a flat floor to maximize passenger and baggage space in the tiny crossover, which is all electric. There are footrests built into the front seats, allowing passengers to relax while the Ioniq is being charged.
The Ioniq 5’s wheelbase is longer than that of the three-row Hyundai Palisade, resulting in more accommodation for passengers in the front and rear seats. There’s a lot of storage space in the wide center console that moves back and forth between the front seats in the Limited grades.
The Ioniq subbrand, according to Hyundai, focuses on connected living, and the Ioniq 5 offers a slew of cutting-edge technology in the areas of entertainment and networking. It shares a dashboard panel with a 12.0-inch digital gauge cluster, but the 12.0-inch touchscreen serves as a hub for entertainment. Additionally, speech recognition technologies and smartphone-integrated apps like Apple CarPlay or Android Auto are included.
Level 2 autonomous driving mode, termed Highway User Assist 2, will be available on the Ioniq 5. It is similar to GM’s Super Cruise and allows the vehicle to drive on the highway and change lanes with little to no driver input.

The bigger battery has a maximum range of 481 kilometers on the WLTP cycle, while the smaller battery has a range of 384 kilometers. There are two different battery packs available for the Ioniq 5: one for rear-wheel drive and another for all-wheel drive.

The vehicle has also shown to be reliable in terms of safety. Euro NCAP just awarded the Ioniq 5 a 5-Star rating.
