Hyundai IONIQ 5 to be upgraded for the 2023 model year
Chief among the changes is the option of a new 77.4kWh battery, which provides an increased range of up to 315 miles and a power increase of 11PS over the previous 72.6 kWh battery.
Video-based digital interior and exterior mirrors, mounted in the IONIQ 5’s rear spoiler are also an option. Meanwhile, a new battery heater and conditioning feature is being introduced as standard across the range.
It enables the car to adapt its battery temperature while travelling to support get the best charging conditions at the charging point, improving real-life charging performance in hot or cold weather. It activates automatically when a high-power charging point is entered into the vehicle’s navigation system.

All the trimmings
Hyundai has revised the various trim options. The entry-level trim is the SE Connect 58 kWh which costs £39,400. It has a 238-mile range and includes a multi-function reflector and rear LED lamps, 12.3” audio and navigation with Bluetooth connectivity, wireless device charging and adaptive cruise control.
“Vehicle dynamics benefit from the addition of smart frequency dampers to improve the response of front and rear suspension and increase both handling response and ride comfort,” Hyundai says.
Next in line is the Premium model, starting at £41,900. Standard equipment includes the Vehicle to Load (V2L) system, previously a cost option, part-leather upholstery, upgraded soft-touch interior including 64-colour ambient lighting and a sliding centre console.
“The Premium specification level also sees the first digital-based solution introduced with a standard full display mirror that also uses a camera positioned inside the vehicle spoiler to project a real-time display onto the interior mirror, optimising the drivers' rear view in all conditions, alongside the automatic dimming function,” says Hyundai.
The Premium also has the option of a heat pump that enhances the efficiency of the battery during poor weather by heating the cabin as opposed to using the high voltage battery to power the heating system. Premium models are available with both the 58 kWh and new 77.4 kWh pack.
The £48,400 Ultimate trim provides a blind view monitor and surround-view monitor as standard, alongside 20in alloy wheels, privacy glass, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, BOSE premium sound system and an augmented reality head-up display.
Options include the Heat Pump as well as a fresh Tech Pack that includes Remote Smart Park Assist (RSPA), Parking Collision Avoidance (PCA), Automatic flush door handles, driver seat position memory function and relaxation seats on both driver and passenger seats.
The top-of-the-range £52,900 Namsan Edition (named after Seoul’s Namsan Mountain) includes Digital Side Mirrors that replace traditional door mirrors with externally mounted cameras that project their image onto OLED monitors, a panoramic roof and the heat pump and Tech Pack as standard.
