This is the new hyundai ioniq 5 and it’s a little bit like us open tennis champion emma radekanu because it’s one ace grand slam smash of a car it’s also very clever and good looking that’s actually not my personal opinion i’m a middle-aged dad i have no opinion on that it’s the view of one of my members of the team is much younger new balls please anyway in this

Video i’m going to tell you all about this car talk you through the exterior design the interior design i’m going to test out some of its technology take it for a drive and of course i’m going to launch it see how quick it is from north to 60 miles an hour i’m matt watson and you’re watching car wow and if you haven’t done so already make sure you subscribe to

This channel because i’ve got another video coming up with this car in the future which is a little bit different and you won’t want to miss it buying a new car then head to car wow and my team will help you find your next car at a fair price car wow your one-stop car buying comparison site let’s start this video by talking about the design of the ioniq five and

I’m going to use some classic car designer cliche so the rear it’s fascinating love this light bar and the light graphics the side is emotive especially the wheels they look like they’ve been drawn using that spirograph toy you had as a kid this is what spike graph is in case you don’t know the front is it’s inspiring actually i should stop mocking i love the look

Of this car this is how i hoped cars would look in the future when i thought about them when i was a kid sort of like got a stormtrooper thing going on as well at the front i love the lights the light design and you get this light bar here you can’t really see it so well in the daylight but you can see these little strips at night they look great do you know what i

Think tesla could learn a thing or two about car design from hyundai here on the inside the ioniq 5 is a nice place to be question is is it worth the asking price so here on carmite says that it starts from 37 000 pounds so you can save an average of just over 400 pounds on one through car wow in fact if you’re thinking about buying a new car make sure you click

On the pop-out band up there or follow the link in the description to go to car wow so you can make sure you’re paying a fair price for the car you’re looking at alternatively if you want to do that at a later date simply google help me car wow we can even help you sell your current car and get a great price for that too anyhow does it feel worth the money well

Quality is pretty good in here the design is cool as well it’s fairly minimal it feels just as futuristic as the outside i like it i like it a lot i also like the fact that you actually have some buttons here which are quick to get to your climate controls however annoyingly they’re touch sensitive buttons so they may as well be on the screen like in some other

Cars at least you have some shortcut buttons here for the infotainment system speaking of which you get these two nice big screens the system is fairly easy to use and to swipe through it’s nice and bright as well and of course you’ve got apple carplay and android auto if you’d rather run that now moving on to the ioniq five digital drivers display it’s very nice

Easy to use it’s clear and there’s lots of different menus and it’ll also change the color and the look of it depending on which driving mode you’re in it’s got all the information you need i like that i also like the driving position and the steering wheel design it’s good it’s a bit odd that they don’t have a hinder badge here instead there are four dots is that

Their new logo i don’t think so but there is a lot of adjustment in the seating position so if you’re big or small you should be able to get comfy when you’re driving what about if you’ve got lots of stuff don’t worry there’s so much storage in here this is a built from the ground up electric car so there’s not all the stuff like prop shafts to send power to the

Rear wheels or exhaust or stuff there’s loads of space i can slide my feet through there and like pick my front passenger i don’t know why i do that but you do get all this extra storage here look at that so you can fit your bag under here if you want to got more storage under there big cup holders perfect for cups of coffee there’s some more storage down there

Also door bins they are big rock they can take a big bottle and you should check out the glove box or should i say glove draw it’s a huge draw massive that’s good connectivity is pretty good as well so you’ve got usb down there got 12 volt charger there if you’re old-fashioned actually i don’t know why they’ve got that then you’ve got two usbs there as well and

Of course a wireless charging mat on this particular car hmm impressive two last things to show you i love the fact this car has a huge vanity mirror which is perfect if you’re very vain like me also either way they put the plus and the minus on the accelerator and brake pedal plus to accelerate a minus two decelerate offs here in the back of the ionic five

There is loads of space loads of headroom loads of knee room however there are two slight problems one is the fact that because you’ve got the batteries underneath the floor the distance between the floor at the top of the seat isn’t actually all that much so you do feel like you’re squatting a little bit another issue the isofix anchor points so it’s dead easy to

Get a baby seat in through the wide door opening but then you’re stabbing away trying to find the anchor points of the isofix system obviously once you’ve done that you’re probably not going to have to do it again for a long time and there is loads of room back here to even accommodate one of those big bulky rear-facing child seats so that’s good another thing

That’s good is that you’ve got some storage nets there got some more storage there two usbs there’s a flat floor once again because of the fact it’s an ev so the middle seat is usable you’ve also got big door bins large rear windows you get a good view out quality back here is the same as in the front which is nice and look you do have an armrest though it is a

Shame that you’ve got the cup holders there so you end up putting arms in there oh look at this as well look you can recline the seats and you can slide them forward if you want to create more boot space speaking of which the boot capacity on the ionic 5 is 527 liters but if you need an ev with a bigger booty you should check out my in-depth review of the skoda

Eniac you can do that by clicking on the pop-out banner of the top right hand corner of the screen or following the link in the description so this boot is a nice square shape and there’s not much of a load lip so you can easily slide things in and out do you like my little high-end shopping bag other features bit of under oh and uh oh i can’t get it up that’s

What she said under floor storage there we can hide your cables away that is handy and look we have the load cover there to hide things away at a supplement site but it’s i’ll tell you what it’s a little bit annoying you know what’s going to happen now it’s getting thrown and that brings up to five annoying things about the ioniq five the front boot on this

Car the fruit is normally 57 liters in capacity if you have the rear drive only version but if you have the four wheel drive version it shrinks to 24 liters it really is a tiny little fruit well the interior design of this car is cool there is one bit i don’t like and it’s the drive selector i mean the the location is all wrong it feels cheap and looking at it it

Sort of reminds me of the kind of thing that a married couple that’s trying to revive their love life might purchase from a specialist adult store i wonder if it vibrates well these door handles look cool the way you actually open the door is a bit odd because pull on this bit it’s not as good as just grabbing a handle normally sort of reminds me of when you have

One of those slightly embarrassing handshake when the other person doesn’t grab your hand properly instead just ends up shaking your fingers weird considering this is such a high-tech modern car what have we got old-fashioned usbs and no new usbcs can you explain that to me please somebody the location of the rear view camera is quite low down so it’s covered in

Road grime and annoyingly there is no special washer like you got on some other cars to clean it off so you end up with a view like that but that brings on to five good things about this car honest the surround view camera system on this car is absolutely glorious very high definition i like the way you can zoom in and out on the bird’s eye view and you have this

3d effect as well look how lovely jubbly look around the car you know what that reminds me of the system you get on an audi and a bmw you can put the front seats into a nap mode for when you’re charging the car so you can have a little bit of a sleep press a button and they’ll stop moving into position so that you can recline and catch 40 winks while your car is

Charging actually this reminds me going to the dentist so i’m going to start drilling my teeth now it’s quite cool though also like this look you can slide this center console forward so it makes it easier for you to pile across if you parked in a really tight space and can’t get out of the driver’s door look see i can come across a little rubbish you can get

The car with a really nice heads-up display and it actually uses augmented reality to show the actual directions that you need to take on the road in front of you we should be showing you clips of that on b-roll now if you don’t have that we’re probably showing you some random clips from our tik tok channel which you can follow by clicking on the link in the

Description for some weird stuff that we do weirder than these videos you can actually drive this car remotely using the key fob you can make it in and out of tight parking space it’s really handy or you can just drive it along randomly just to freak people out there is no one in it absolutely no one in it weird will he run me over nah i say wouldn’t you can

Run household appliances off this car’s battery i’ve got a three pin socket down there and i want coffee because today’s been tough well in there went down there and i should be able to make a lovely espresso in my half pine glass come on yeah look at that oh yeah bear with me now can you do this in your car no you can’t even if your car has a three-pin socket

You can’t do it unless you’ve got an ionic five or maybe a key or ev6 that’ll do that’ll do right here oh are you ready for a stats overload because i’m going to run you through all the different motor battery and charging options on the ionic five so you can get three different flavors of it you can get a single motor rear drive version with a 58 kilowatt hour

Battery that has 170 horsepower or you can get that single motor version but with a bigger 73 kilowatt hour battery and that has 217 horsepower or you can get a version with the motor at the back and at the front a dual motor version with four wheel drive and that has 305 horsepower and that also gets the larger 73 kilowatt hour battery as standard as for the

Range well it varies between about 240 and 300 miles depending on which version you go for but regardless of which ioniq 5 you go for they all come with 220 kilowatt fast charging capability which means you can charge them from about 10 to 80 full in just 20 minutes but which version of the ioniq 5 should it go for and what trim level well i’m going to configure my

Ideal ionic 5 using the carbide configurator so you don’t have to and if you want to see what that car is and the offer i’ve got back on it click on the pop out banner up there i’ll throw the link in the description below to see my pick of the range okay let’s take the ionic 5 for a drive and let’s see what it’s like first of all in town you have a slightly elevated

Driving position which does help for visibility in fact visibility is good in this car big windscreen the dash isn’t too high there’s a good view out the back big door mirrors well that’s the safety systems thought i was going to crash into that car although i was fully aware of it but it’s better to be worn than to have an accident surely as for the suspension

Well i’m just going to go for some potholes and manhole covers there’s a little bit of suspension noise and a little bit of a third every now and again but actually it’s pretty blooming comfy you know it’s good over the bumps it’s a relaxing car then there’s a turning circle so i’m gonna do yui here a little u-turn because i i don’t wanna go this way anymore i’m

Bored of it oh yeah look at that good turning circle and i’m getting a long look from the man in the van and i don’t think he’s looking at me because i’m just beautiful he was staring at this car because it is quite striking steering’s nice and light then that’s good ah yeah this is a good car for in town really really good oh gotta tell you regen mode for the

Braking look i can control the amount of braking effect that you get when you lift off the accelerator using these pedals here they are not gear selectors i have a car behind me now and i’m going to slow down and annoy it pretend that i’m stopping to receive a phone call but i’m not going to answer it because i’m in a car i’m causing chaos look chaos that was me

Illustrating shut up phone okay now to self whenever i’m filming i should put my phone on silent shut up shut up i can’t touch you because it’s illegal shut up another note itself make sure that you connect your phone to a car before you go driving so that you can actually cancel a call if someone’s ringing you and interrupting your piece to camera anyway one

Pedal braking really works slows the car nicely and i like the fact you’ve got quite a lot of choice in between just it cruising and it breaking it’s great looking at it again though so here i come to a junction i want to turn i’ve lift off the accelerator i’m not touching the brake i’m slowing down more than i plan to sorry mate testing cars okay i have a luna

Driver ahead they’re doing 34 miles an hour in a 50. so i’m going to overtake them and you’ll see the performance this car gives you for overtaking yes plenty that’s all good now we’re getting a bit quicker let’s see what this car actually handles like so i’m going to put it into sports mode yes sport now i noticed a throt response is a lot quicker steering has

A bit more weight doesn’t do anything to the suspension but that’s interesting when you throw this thing into a car it does bob a little bit it doesn’t have the same level of composure around the corners as its sister car the kia ev6 and if you want to see my fort and dip video review of that car click on the pop-up banner up there or follow the link in the video

The kia is slightly more sporty to drive so if that’s your bag get the kia though this thing it’s not terrible it’s fine it grips the road well enough it doesn’t lean too much in the bends it just doesn’t feel quite as sharp or as dirty and let’s try out the ionic on the motorway so i’m going to put the car into eco mode try and save energy though actually i’m

Not sure i like driving in eco mode because the thrall pedal is just so unresponsive now so if i need to overtake someone i absolutely have to completely floor it and it doesn’t seem to be quite as quick let’s go back to normal that’s better loads better i’m going to engage my automated cruise control with lane keeping assist don’t know why i’m doing that voice

I just damn i let the car do all the hard work i just got to keep my hands on the steering wheel to keep it nice and legal so when you’re cruising along in this car you know it’s a bit a wind noise bit of tire noise but it’s not bad at all it’s reasonably quiet and the cruise control system is very good at keeping you hooked to the center of the lane i like that

Well i’m not too sure about though the seats i’m not sure whether it’s just my body but they’re not quite as comfy as i like you know if you do a long distance in these can be a bit tiring i think if you’re going to buy this car you should definitely test drive it and see if the seats suit you they’re good for lying flat and having a nap on but not so good sitting

In this position for long periods of time now i don’t think this dual motor version of the ioniq 5 should do 960 in 5.2 seconds but what is the reality we’re going to find out now with the specialist humming gear i’m going to launch it let’s go pick up strong instant easy smooth and quicker than they say 4.79 seconds now i’m going to break test from 60 miles

An hour here we go full emergency stop now felt pretty strong what was the distance oh 33 meters however i managed to break from 60 to zero in 31 meters in another ev click on the pop-up banner up there for the link in the description to see what that ev is and to watch my review of that car so then what’s my final verdict on the hyundai ioniq 5. should you avoid

It should you consider it should you shortlist it or should you just go right ahead and buy it well i reckon you should just go right ahead and buy the hyundai ioniq 5. it really is a fabulous and great looking electric car i hope you all enjoyed the video if you did please give it a like if you click on those windows there you can watch some more videos and if
