If you’re looking to supercharge your ride, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 may be your perfect vehicle. This electric vehicle (EV) offering from Hyundai is as connected as it is stylish, giving you a luxury experience while saving you money on gas. At Huffines Hyundai McKinney, we’re excited about this engaging vehicle and all its unique qualities. Read on to learn more about the entertainment and technology features of the Ioniq 5 from your local Hyundai dealer.
What Is the Hyundai Ioniq 5?
The Ioniq 5 is an EV hatchback designed solely as an EV. While some other electric vehicles come as a new version of previous gasoline or hybrid options, this ride benefits from a clean design slate and the use of the manufacturer’s new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). Essentially, it’s an EV designed to be an EV. That freedom allows Hyundai to have a little fun with this unique new machine.
What’s So Exciting About This New Ride?
There’s plenty to love about this Hyundai ride. A 77.4-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack keeps this vehicle going strong on the road, while single-motor rear-wheel drive or dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrains give it surprising performance for a vehicle without any gas requirements. The rear-wheel-drive models give you 225 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, while all-wheel-drive offers 320 hp and 446 lb-ft of torque. For the rear-wheel option, you’ll get 303 miles of range and 114 MPGe, while AWD gives you 256 miles of range and a 98 MPGe efficiency rating. Not too shabby, huh?
Besides its strong driving effort, the Ioniq 5 has some fun new features that will surely delight any driver. A front truck, for example, uses what would be gas engine space to provide you with extra storage. Sleek, unique, and fun to drive, this is a great vehicle for EV lovers and those looking to transition into something new. We promise you won’t miss any of the power or performance you’re used to when you make the switch to electric.
Entertainment and Technology Features
What really gets us going about this Hyundai option, though, is its unique and exciting entertainment and technology features. Check out some of these fun offerings:
Arguably one of the most cutting-edge features on this ride, augmented reality can allow the vehicle to project navigation information and other data right on the driver’s windshield. Not only can this help you see more of what’s in front of you, but it can also help keep you safe by minimizing the need to look down. And, we have to admit, it looks pretty cool while doing it.
With activated distance control, the Ioniq 5 will automatically stop the car without the driver having to press the brake as long as they don’t accelerate. In this way, you can pilot the vehicle with only the accelerator. If another driver cuts you off or swerves into your lane, this smart ride will automatically slow down or swerve to the left or right to avoid trouble.
Since you’re carrying around a giant battery with your EV, you might as well use it. The Ioniq 5 allows you to charge your devices with multiple backseat charging ports for laptops or phones. In an emergency, you can also use a reverse charge system to fuel up another EV, or vice versa. Never worry about losing power outside the range of a charging station again.
Hyundai understands that parking can be hard. That’s why the company gave the Ioniq 5 the ability to park with the touch of a button. Simply select the self-parking option and sit back and relax while your ride parks in or pulls out of any spot you give it. This includes parallel parking and head-on options between other vehicles.
Hyundai takes the interior features of its vehicles as seriously as all other tech options. With “relaxion” front seats, you can press a side button and, well, relax as the seat reclines to a perfect, nap-level angle. Almost like having a super comfortable reclining chair in your car, this is the perfect feature to help you chill as you wait for the vehicle to charge.
With the Ioniq 5, everything is energy, including the sun. This ride includes a solar roof that helps create some of the power to move the car forward. Drivers can monitor this charging process using the vehicle’s internal computers to learn more about how much power they’re saving.
Using the Digital Key feature, Ioniq drivers can control their vehicle using a smartphone instead of a key fob. Not only can you unlock or lock the vehicle from the palm of your hand, as many manufacturers offer, but you can also start the car and drive it away without a fob. For those inclined to lose their keys, this is a worthwhile innovation.
While all this innovation is exciting, it’s also important to know that your ride can keep you and your passengers entertained on the road. Luckily, the Ioniq 5 has your back here, too. Enjoy a pair of side-by-side 12.3-inch screens, one acting as the instrument cluster and another as the main infotainment touchscreen. You’ll also get three years of included Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Hyundai Blue Link scheduling to keep you going.
