With the 2023 IONIQ 5 being built on a dedicated electric vehicle platform, Hyundai took the opportunity to depart from some of its past design norms. Based heavily on the Hyundai 45 concept, the IONIQ 5 carries a pleasant retro-futuristic aesthetic.

The V-shaped front end integrated with bright LED headlights is sure to turn many heads while cruising through Minneapolis streets. The flush door handles help give the IONIQ 5 a sleek and high-tech appearance while also helping to improve aerodynamics. Despite the appearance of a regular hatchback, the IONIQ 5 actually has the longest wheelbase of any Hyundai model in the US. With the use of the new EV platform, the IONIQ 5 is able to have limited front and rear overhangs, improving both handling and interior space.

The perfect proportions and bold sharp angles of the IONIQ 5 make it one of the best-looking electric cars on the market.

Hyundai IONIQ For SaleIONIQ Interior

Thanks to the elongated wheelbase, anyone stepping into the IONIQ 5 will be surprised by the spaciousness of the interior. While the IONIQ 5 is 14 inches shorter than the Hyundai Palisade SUV, its wheelbase is actually four inches longer. The IONIQ 5 is able to lead the competition with a total interior passenger volume of 106.5 cubic feet. Front and rear passengers can enjoy 39.8 and 38.7 inches of headroom, respectively. Legroom for front and rear passengers sits at 41.7 and 39.4 inches, respectively. In addition to this, 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space is available behind the rear seats as well.

The extra space in the cabin is further accentuated by the minimalist interior design. Two 12.3-inch displays sit side by side handling both gauge cluster information as well as infotainment. Connectivity includes Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Customizable ambient lighting and a magnetic board for pictures or notes found next to the gauge cluster allow for a unique and personalized cabin experience. Available footrests are found in the front seats, allowing passengers to recline and relax whenever the need arises.

To keep in line with their mission of sustainability, many of the touchpoints found in the 2023 Hyundai IONIQ 5 interior use eco-friendly sustainably sourced materials.

How Much Does the 2023 Hyundai IONIQ 5 Cost?

The starting price for the IONIQ 5 is still to be determined but should be revealed soon. The IONIQ 5 will be available in three trim levels: SE, SEL, and Limited. Each trim level will be available in both an RWD and AWD configuration. Through a partnership with Electrify America, each IONIQ 5 will qualify for unlimited 30-minute charges for two years at any of Electrify America’s 800 charging stations nationwide.


SE Standard Range – Starting MSRP: $41,450

Starting all the way from the base model, the IONIQ 5 comes with both a 12.3-inch center touchscreen and instrument cluster. The crisp widescreen display is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Heated front seats and leather-wrapped steering also help bring luxury into the cabin.

Hyundai’s host of safety features also finds its way into the base SE Standard model. These active safety features include Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist and Lane Keeping Assist among others.


SE – Starting MSRP: $45,500

Similar to the SE Standard Range, the SE is going to come with all of the same great features. However, the SE will come equipped with a 225-horsepower electric powertrain on the FWD version. The AWD version will come with a 320-horsepower electric powertrain.


SEL – Starting MSRP: $47,450

The IONIQ 5 SEL features upgraded LED headlights for even greater nighttime visibility and upgrades the seats with leatherette. Further convenience features include a hands-free smart liftgate as well as a wireless charger.

Perhaps the biggest addition to the SEL trim is Hyundai’s Highway Driving Assist 2. The system allows for even easier highway driving by maintaining the correct distance and lane centering all on its own. It can even switch lanes when prompted to do so with the turn signal.


Limited – Starting MSRP: $52,600

The top-of-the-line Limited trim gains a few exterior changes. Its AWD version comes standard with upgraded 20-inch alloy wheels. Additionally, various exterior trim pieces are finished in a gloss back. The Limited also gains rain-sensing wipers as well as a “Vision” panoramic sunroof. This sunroof does away with the standard crossbar, allowing for an even more wide-open look to the cabin.

Technology upgrades include an upgraded seven-speaker Bose audio system as well as Surround View Monitor to give better awareness during tight parking situations. For even tighter spots, the Limited comes with Remote Smart Parking Assist so that owners can park their cars while standing outside. A head-up display with augmented reality (AR) technology that will adapt the display to what’s in the driver’s field of view is also included.


What colors does the 2023 IONIQ 5 come in?

The IONIQ will come in 8 different colors:

  • Phantom Black
  • Shooting Star (Matte Gray)
  • Abyss Black
  • Atlas White
  • Digital Teal
  • Lucid Blue
  • Cyber Gray
  • Gravity Gold (Matte Gold)

IONIQ 5 Performance

The 2023 Hyundai IONIQ 5 comes in a single battery capacity with either an AWD or RWD setup. The RWD comes in 2 versions, either a single electric motor that can output 168 horsepower which is standard on the SE Standard Range, or the regular RWD version that creates 225 horsepower standard on the SE and up. Going for the AWD version not only allows for more traction but more power as well. With the addition of an electric motor at the front axle, the AWD IONIQ 5 outputs 320 horsepower and an imposing 446 lb-ft of torque. With this configuration, the IONIQ 5 can hit 60 mph in under five seconds.

The IONIQ 5 can provide wonderful charging times as well. When using a charging station that can output at least 250 kW, the IONIQ 5 can charge to 80% in as little as 18 minutes. At 150 kW charging this figure only goes up to 25 minutes. If charged with a Level 2 charger at home, a 100% charge can be achieved in less than seven hours, allowing for a fully charged battery at the start of every morning.

IONIQ Safety

Producing cars that keep their occupants safe has been a priority for Hyundai across its entire lineup. While the 2023 Hyundai IONIQ 5 should stand up well to any type of collision, it’s packed with a bunch of active safety features that help prevent it from getting into a collision in the first place. From the base model upwards, the IONIQ 5 is equipped with the Hyundai SmartSense suite of driver assistance features. Some of the features included are:


  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. The IONIQ 5 will continuously scan the front of the vehicle for any potential collisions. If one is detected, it will send an alert to the driver and apply the brakes automatically if a prompt reaction is not achieved.


  • Driver Attention Warning. The system will defect any driving patterns that are possibly due to a drowsy or inattentive driver. Once detected, the IONIQ 5 will set off a sound cue as well as a warning message in the instrument panel.


  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA). Provides a warning and automatically controls the vehicle to help avoid a collision.


  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA). A high-tech safety system that can detect oncoming vehicles when reversing.
