Quotes from MotorBiscuit:
“When you get in the new 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5, you feel like you’re living in 2032, not 2022, said Dan Mayfield, staff writer, MotorBiscuit.” “The electric IONIQ 5 SUV seems to manage an EV hat trick of packaging an excellent ride, unmatched comfort, and great driving manners with quiet power. While it’s not as large as other SUVs, it still manages to seat five comfortably, offers all-wheel drive, and has a good-sized cargo area. It even earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ designation.”
“The IONIQ 5 looks futuristic outside, but Hyundai didn’t forget about the interior, where we spend our time, where it added most of the creature comforts we all want,” added Mayfield. “You can slip it into quiet mode and turn on the sounds of nature, which is just the mode to hear the tires squeal to deal with its optional 320-horsepower dual-motor drive.”
