The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is getting a bump in power and range plus a new ride and handling package, while a new flagship variant will bring more tech.
The first of the updated models arrive in October, with prices for the carryover Dynamiq and Techniq up by $2100 and $2000, respectively.
All models get a larger 77.4kWh lithium-ion battery, replacing the old 72.6kWh unit, which bumps range in the rear-wheel drive Dynamiq from 481km to 507km and in all-wheel drive models from 430km to 454km.
Power is up, too, with RWD models now producing 168kW of power and 350Nm of torque and AWD models producing 239kW and 605Nm – the former up by 8kW, the latter up by 14kW.
All models get a new ride and handling package, and Hyundai says wheel control, bump absorption and body control were key focuses for its engineers. It promises a ‘perfect’ blend of ride comfort and engaging dynamics “no matter the road or road surface”.
The new Epiq model, available only with dual-motor all-wheel drive, sits atop the range and debuts a trio of features for the Australian market.
Digital Side Mirrors, like those in the related Genesis GV60, project camera footage from outside the car onto two dedicated OLED displays in the cabin. They’re said to reduce blind spots, while the external camera units reduce aerodynamic drag.
A new high-efficiency heat pump system provides the cabin heating, incorporating waste heat energy from other systems to warm the cabin.
Finally, battery conditioning is said to improve both driving and DC charging performance in colder climates. By setting a DC charger as your navigation destination, you can pre-heat the battery to ensure the quickest possible charge.
The next batch of Ioniq 5s will be available to order online from 26 October, 2022 at 1pm AEDT.
Over 200 cars will be available across Dynamiq and Techniq trims, across all states and territories bar the Northern Territory.
The new Epiq flagship, however, won’t be included in this batch. Hyundai says it’s due in late 2022.
Servicing intervals have been extended from 12 months or 15,000km to 24 months or 30,000km, whichever comes first.
- 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Dynamiq RWD: $72,000 (+$2100)
- 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Techniq AWD: $79,500 (+$2000)
- 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Epiq AWD: $85,000 (new)
All prices exclude on-road costs.
The entry-level 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Dynamiq is exclusively powered by a single electric motor that produces 168kW of power and 350Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels only.
The Ioniq 5 Techniq and Epiq have a dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain with total system outputs of 239kW and 605Nm.
Both powertrains use a 77.4kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack that’s mounted beneath the flat floorpan.
The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 has 507km of range on the stricter WLTP test cycle in rear-wheel drive guise and 454km with all-wheel drive.
All Ioniq 5 models support a 400V and 800V charging infrastructure.
Hyundai claims it’ll take 18 minutes to charge from 10 to 80 per cent using a 350kW ultra-fast DC charger, or 73 minutes with a 50kW fast charger.
A 10 to 100 per cent charge using a 7kW AC charger will take 11 hours and 45 minutes.
The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 measures 4635mm long, 1605mm tall and 1890mm wide, excluding the mirrors, and has a 3000mm wheelbase.
With the rear seats upright the rear-wheel drive Ioniq 5 has a rear boot capacity of 527L, as well as a 57L front boot and a 9.4L sliding glovebox.
The all-wheel drive Ioniq 5 has the same boot and glovebox capacities, but has a smaller 25L front boot.
The Ioniq 5 is backed by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre vehicle warranty plus an eight-year, 160,000km high-voltage battery warranty.
Servicing is required every 24 months or 30,000km, whichever comes first. The first three services are capped at $570, $1090 and $570, respectively.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 has a five-star safety rating from ANCAP, which is based on testing conducted in October 2021.
It earned its five-star rating on back of a 88 per cent score for adult occupant protection, 87 per cent for child occupant protection, 63 per cent for vulnerable road user protection, and 89 per cent for safety assist.
