Hyundai Ioniq 5 Inspiration AWD 77kWh Review
30 Dec 2023  |  Hyundai Reviews
The Ioniq 5 Inspiration builds on all of the model's strengths with the delight of far more power - but might need more to stand out as the range-topper.

What We Dislike
Hard-to-miss heft
Needs more differentiation as the top-of-the-line variant

Great Family Car  Posted on 13 Jan 2024

Review
Have got about 6000km on my 58kWh Prestige.

Good:
- economy (using i-Pedal), getting 13-14kWh/100km translating to more than 400km of range on a full charge
- tech: all the safety systems work well enough and can be tuned so as not to be intrusive. The adaptive cruise control and auto steering work very nicely making expressway journeys much more relaxing. Head up display is great to have and adds to safety as you can keep your eyes on the road.
- space: really good headroom and legroom for all passengers. Width is also broad so 3 can sit in the 2nd row without issues.
- memory seats are very useful for the 2 drivers in my family and the ventilated seats are very nice in hot weather
- Bluelink app works well and is useful
- remote controlled fwd/backward movement of the car is quite easy to do and very useful for tight parking spaces. You can now get in and out of the car with dignity rather than pirouetting to squeeze into for a car without this feature.
- interior materials, design and glass roof are feel luxurious enough for a car of this price range
- charging speed is good enough, never found it to be too slow for me
- cabin noise is fairly well insulated for a car of this price range
- Regen mode options are great and will drivers who like to coast or drivers who like 1-pedal driving will all be happy with the car

Could be improved:
- suspension could be a little softer for my taste. Tyres have to be run at high psi due to vehicle weight so suspension has to compensate for that too
- power is fine for Spore roads, but will need more horsepower for regular trips to Msia (have to get cat B)
- software update to allow wireless Android auto and Apple Carplay still pending
- boot could have more hooks and cubbies for utility

Review
Made-in-Singapore, and a perfect fit for Singapore. The Ioniq 5 combines space and comfort with strong performance for a Cat A COE car, making it a no brainer for all those looking to get an electric runabout.

What I like
High comfort. The car comes with some chunky tyres that allow it to soak up a good chunk of our broken tarmac, and that's not the only reason why the Ioniq is so comfortable to live with.

The seat hip position is just right for all those more than 165cm tall, there's plenty of leg room both at the front and at the back, and head room is generous as well. The best part about the Ioniq is that the door sills are low to the floor so its always easy to get in and out of.

Steering is numb and light but that's alright for a city runabout.

Infotainment screens can be a bit intimidating, but there's easy to work shortcut buttons and once you get the hang of it you'll find your most frequented menus always at hand.

What I do not like
Nil.

Reliable EV for SG use even using public charging infrastructure exclusively  Posted on 29 Oct 2023
spacer
 

Review
Considering the price point for EV, it's either going with Chinese made versions, Tesla or the Ioniq series. This review is based on a month of driving, clocking up more than 1000 km of usage in real world conditions for family of 5 (3 growing up kids)

*Range*
Firstly, I got a Cat A version with a market range of 380km with one full charge. After 1000 km of driving, my energy consumption is at 14kwh per 100km. With a 58kwh battery, I find the Ioniq 5 can last more than 410km on a full charge. This is possible on eco mode with level 3 regeneration on.

Ditching my fuel guzzling SUV, I also found new habits. Now I will find opportunities to recharge my ioniq 5 whenever I can after dropping my kids off for enrichment or there's a public charger near where I shop (which is very convenient). My car rarely drops below 50% charge.

*Comfort*
This car is huge with lots of room. My eldest who is almost 175cm with long legs describe this as a business class seat compared my previous mid size SUV as economy. There's a lot of features for the Prestige model. Hot SG weather? How about air cooled seats? Or turning on the a/c 5 to cool down before getting into the car? Huge plus. The boot space, though not as big as my old SUV, is still rather spacious.

*Negatives*
Our public charging infrastructure can still be improved at I found the charger to be offline or down twice in a month period. The long wheel base meant that I'm still getting used to the humongous turning radius that's seemed to be wider than my old SUV.

Overall this is a great car for it's price point!

Review
It's made in Singapore, looks stunningly brilliant, and is actually quite a sensible car for everyday errands. It could be everything you're looking for in a car.

What I like
Great exterior design. For those that want the high ride height, great head room, and just generous knee space for all, this Ioniq 5 gives you all these without requiring that you settle for that SUV look. It's large, but from far enough, the Ioniq 5 just looks like a hatchback.

There's loads of details all across the lower sections, the skirts, the stamping on the doors, all give you plenty to appreciate after you're done with admiring that boxy silhouette.

Power and acceleration is decent. Good if you consider you're paying for a Cat A COE car.

What I do not like
Exterior is perhaps a little too busy. High power variants are expensive.

Review
It looks like a small hatchback, but is actually rather huge. This translates to good space in the cabin, and a comfortable seating position. Under all this is generous power and good responsiveness for a Cat A car. There's really not much more you really can ask for.

What I like
It's quiet on the go, reasonably fast, and easy to drive, save for one small issue. Visibility is good, and so is general comfort for all. There's good space for those at the rear.

Ride is definitely on the planted side, and is still pliant with well-judged damping.

Infotainment offers all sort of information and there's a lot of adjustability and settings to adjust. It looks messy, there's no way around it. Good thing is cabin build quality is decent.

What I do not like
Driving this Ioniq 5, you'll immediately notice that it is a very wide car. Take some time to get used to this and you'll be ok.

Review
The Ioniq 5 looks smart and drives like a dream as well. There's really not much more you need.

There's high build quality, decent space, and comes at a fairly ok price.

What I like
Spaciousness. This car is larger than it looks, and the cabin certainly feels it. Space is remarkable for rear passengers.

Power for the Cat A variant is just decent, but enough to make the Ioniq 5 feel always effortless until you start to rack up triple digits on the speedometer.

Cabin looks and feels clean without being sterile. There's plenty of options on the central screen and all sorts of numbers on the digital driver's display. If you're into this kinda thing it will take some time to figure out where everything is, but if you're not you can just ignore all this and drive away. Only thing that's important really is battery charge left.

What I do not like
Car is wide and can be difficult to place on the road at first.
