Hyundai Ioniq 5 offers a lot of space in the interior: first check!

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is an electric SUV with an enormous amount of space

Hyundai’s new electric sub-brand starts with the Ioniq 5. The debut should convince with an 800-volt electrical system and plenty of space. AUTO BILD was already inside!

D.he Hyundai Ioniq 5 is one thing above all: different. The 800 volt electrical system is still unique in its class and makes it Fast charging technology reasonably affordable. The Koreans also go their own way visually; also in the interior, where princely space is promised. Whether that’s true, has AUTO BILD at a first seat test verified. We reveal what else makes the Ioniq 5 so special! (All information about the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is available here!)

It is said that pictures do not lie. Somehow they already do that with the Ioniq 5: with its long Wheelbase of exactly three meters, the short overhangs and the retro design, it is proportionally reminiscent of the compact class of the 80s. Live it is, however, much larger than it appears in photos. They stab at the front LED lights eye-catching – its U-shape can be found everywhere on the car. Beneath this, countless fine, lengthways arranged LED strips extend across the vehicle, which become invisible when the lights are switched off. The black bar in the middle shows the battery level while charging. In the lower part of the front apron there are two active aero flaps. Depending on the drive’s cooling air requirement, they can open or close, which also improves the drag coefficient. They have the same purpose retractable door handles and the distinctive notches in the wheel arches. The latter should divert air turbulence generated by the wheels in the best possible way.

At the Rear two things stand out in particular. First that continuous strip of lights With Pixel LEDs like at the front. Second there is here no wipers. Instead, there are two openings in the roof spoiler that are intended to direct the airstream specifically onto the windshield. A test will clarify whether that really keeps the raindrops away.

The interior of the Ioniq 5 shines with a huge amount of space

We get in and take a seat in the driver’s seat. Hyundai did not exaggerate the cockpit is actually very airy. The vehicle floor is absolutely flat, a center tunnel is missing. A kind takes its place Island with a huge storage compartment, which can be pushed back and forth at will. Together with the bright furnishings, this should create an atmosphere like in your own four walls. The glove compartment has also been replaced by a pull-out drawer. And at the magnetic area to the left of the digital cockpit you can pin shopping lists or fridge magnets. The electrically adjustable front seats are ingenious. You are at the push of a button for Recliner including extendable legrest to be able to relax during the loading breaks.

The dashboard is designed to be particularly flat and reduced. Operation and displays are reduced to a few touch surfaces and buttons as well as two screens for the digital cockpit and infotainment. The two 12.25 inch displays are razor sharp and react instantly. The 44 inch head-up display unfortunately did not work in the pre-production vehicle. But there are also a few real criticisms: Old-fashioned USB 2.0 sockets have no place in such a modern car, USB-C ports would have to be inserted here. Also needs for Apple Carplay and Android Auto due to licensing problems, a cable for the connection must be tried. Thirdly, the interior is generally of extremely high quality. A few angles with cheap-looking plastic can be found after a little search. (The Hyundai Nexo in the connectivity check!)

The front seats should be designed to be particularly slim, which improves legroom in the rear.

Enough complained, switch to the Fund. Here the space is even more princely. The legs and head have plenty of air The bench can be adjusted electrically. There’s one below 230 volt connection, to charge smartphones, laptops or other devices. There is space for up to 531 liters of luggage in the trunk. That grows when the rear seat bench is folded down Storage volume even to almost 1,600 liters. There’s a under the front hood additional, small compartment with a volume of 57 liters. In the all-wheel drive versions there are only 24 liters, so you can’t accommodate more than the charging cables.

Hyundai offers an eight-year manufacturer’s guarantee

Speaking of charging: thanks to the 800-volt electrical system, the battery can be charged with up to 350 kW. Then he should, according to Hyundai Charged from 10 to 80 percent in 18 minutes be. In five minutes you can fill up with electricity for a range of up to 100 kilometers. Market launch for the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is in Early summer 2021. The prices start at 41,900 euros, after deducting the environmental bonus, there are still 32,330 euros. Madness: Hyundai grants full eight year guarantee. The competitors don’t offer that.
