Trim Comparison: 2024 IONIQ 5 SEL vs. Limited


The highly anticipated 2024 Hyundai IONIQ 5 electric SUV is set to make waves in the automotive industry with its cutting-edge technology, impressive performance, and sleek design. As you explore this groundbreaking vehicle at Huffines Hyundai McKinney, you may find yourself torn between the SEL and Limited trims. In this article, we’ll dive into the key differences between these two trims to help you make an informed decision.

Exterior Features

Both the IONIQ 5 SEL and Limited showcase a futuristic, aerodynamic exterior that’s sure to turn heads on the streets of McKinney, Texas. The two trims have a few notable differences. The Limited boasts larger 20-inch alloy wheels, compared to the SEL’s 19-inch wheels, giving it a more premium appearance. Additionally, the Limited offers premium LED front accent lighting, power-folding side mirrors, silver bumpers and body cladding, premium side sills, and gloss-black exterior accents.

Interior Comfort and Convenience

Step inside the IONIQ 5, and you’ll find a spacious, well-appointed interior. The SEL features comfortable cloth seating, while the Limited upgrades to luxurious leather upholstery. Both trims offer heated front seats and a heated steering wheel that are perfect for those chilly McKinney mornings, but the Limited takes it a step further with ventilated front seats.

When it comes to cargo space, the IONIQ 5 doesn’t disappoint. With the rear seats folded down, you’ll have access to an impressive 59.3 cubic feet of storage. Both trims also include a power liftgate with hands-free opening, making loading and unloading a breeze. The Limited offers additional premium features such as a panoramic glass roof panel, a head-up display with Augmented Reality functions, rain-sensing wipers, and rear side-window sunshades, which aren’t available in the SEL.

Technology and Infotainment

Hyundai has packed the IONIQ 5 with advanced technology features that’ll keep you connected and entertained on every drive. Both the SEL and Limited come standard with a 12.3-inch touch-screen display, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a premium audio system. The Limited upgrades to a Premium eight-speaker Bose Sound System and adds a head-up display, providing essential information directly in your line of sight.

Performance and Efficiency

Under the hood, the IONIQ 5 SEL and Limited share the same impressive powertrain. A 77.4 kWh battery pack powers a single electric motor, delivering 225 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque in rear-wheel-drive (RWD) configuration. If you opt for all-wheel drive (AWD), you’ll enjoy a boost in power to 320 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque.

The IONIQ 5 boasts an impressive driving range, with the RWD Limited and SEL offering up to 303 miles on a single charge, while the AWD models offer 266 miles of range. When it’s time to recharge, the IONIQ 5 supports ultra-fast 800V charging, allowing you to charge from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes at a compatible DC fast-charging station.

Safety and Driver Assistance

Hyundai has prioritized safety in the IONIQ 5, and both the SEL and Limited trims come equipped with an array of advanced safety features. Standard in both trims are forward collision avoidance assist, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, smart cruise control with Stop & Go, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, and parking distance warning, ensuring a secure driving experience.

The Limited trim adds even more protection with features such as blind-spot view monitor and surround view monitor. Both trims have earned an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick+ award, a testament to their exceptional safety standards.

Pricing and Value

The 2024 Hyundai IONIQ 5 SEL has a starting MSRP of $47,400, while the Limited trim starts at $53,500. Upgrading the SEL to AWD costs an additional $3,500, while the Limited’s AWD upgrade is slightly more expensive at $3,900 due to its larger tire dimensions. While the Limited does come with a higher price tag, it also offers a host of additional features and upgrades that may be worth the investment for some buyers. It’s important to consider your budget and priorities when deciding between these two trims.

Both the SEL and Limited offer exceptional value for an electric SUV, with impressive range, cutting-edge technology, and advanced safety features. Hyundai’s industry-leading warranty, which includes a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain and battery warranty, provides added peace of mind and long-term value.

Choosing Between the IONIQ 5 SEL and Limited

When deciding between the IONIQ 5 SEL and Limited, it’s essential to consider your specific needs and preferences. The SEL may be the better choice for drivers who prioritize practicality and affordability, as the numerous features in the Limited may not be necessary for all users. On the other hand, if you crave additional luxury features, exclusive styling elements, and the latest in driver-assistance technology, the Limited trim may be the perfect fit.

Regardless of which trim you choose, you can rest assured that you’ll be driving one of the most advanced and capable electric vehicles on the market. The Hyundai IONIQ 5 has earned several prestigious accolades, including ‘World Car of the Year’ and ‘MotorTrend SUV of the Year 2023,’ a testament to its exceptional design, performance, and innovation.
