Hyundai Ioniq 5 (58 kWh) test: what is the entry-level version worth?

In 2021, Hyundai surprised its world by unveiling the Ioniq 5 electric SUV. With its retro-futuristic look daring, its very airy interior, and its very advanced 800V architecture. But far from the HTRAC version, star of the range, what is the most accessible Ioniq 5 worth? With its small battery of 58 kWh and its finish Intuitive, our test model is the only one in the range to fall below the € 45,000 threshold, below which you are entitled to the full bonus of € 6,000. A real good deal? The answer in our video essay :

Always impressive interior

Our Hyundai Ioniq 5 may be an entry level, its interior still has its effect. It starts with two large 12.3-inch screens, very clear. The navigation screen is not always the most responsive, but for the rest, these panels are a model of clarity. Above all, it is the feeling of space that marks aboard this Ioniq 5. The whole is the product ofa wide car (nearly 1.90 m), and a giant wheelbase 3 m long. The set is completed by an entirely flat floor, and large spaces cleared by a hollow center console.

In short, even in entry-level finish, we are very comfortable in this Ioniq 5, including at the rear. The bench seat is also tilting and sliding, rare in this segment. Behind, the 530 L trunk is completed for a small 57 L auxiliary trunk at the front. We note, and this is normal, some losses compared to the superior finishes: no 360 ° reversing camera, no sliding central console, no premium electric and heated seats … But the essentials are there: driving aids are very comprehensive

, notably.

At the wheel of the Hyundai Ioniq 5

At the wheel too, Hyundai’s premium rise is confirmed. The set is very comfortable, with flexible damping and light steering. On the other hand, the XXL wheelbase, the turning radius supertanker style and the very long rear doors can create stressful situations when parking. Fortunately, rear visibility is very good for a modern car, and large mirrors come in handy.

Autonomy side, no miracle. The small 58 kWh battery is advertised for 383 km of WLTP range, but in winter and in the absence of a standard heat pump, we could not hope for more than 270 km of autonomy during our test. To be confirmed during a passage of this Ioniq 5 58 kWh in the hands of Labo Auto Plus!

But apart from this concern, this entry-level Hyundai Ioniq 5 is frankly interesting. Remaining under 45,000 €, including by checking the case of the heat pump, the only option apart from metallic paint, it becomes € 7,000 less expensive than the 78 kWh version with an equivalent finish. A hole ! Above all, it finds a Skoda Enyaq Version 60, with an identical size battery and aligned prices. The latter is for those who don’t want a futuristic electric car, but for others, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 offers a price / equipment / approval ratio impressive for an electric car.
