Hyundai Ioniq 5 pros and cons
Pros and Cons by Owners / Test Drives
Practicality. Easy to access & egress. Rear accommodation is limoesque. Boot space
Range. 260 winter , 300 summer
Drive. Comfortable, smooth, doesn’t feel a big car to drive.
Interior. No huge screen in the middle.
Rapid charging. It’s a bit fussy but on the whole it’s a fast charger.
The right mix of touch “buttons” and screen accessibility
Rear load cover. What were Hyundai thinking? Car Wow reviewer throws it away. Best thing for it.
Build quality is poor. Panel gaps are huge, tailgate misaligns and rattles. Interior plastics are truly horrible. So many creaks and rattles, especially in cold weather. Lights mist up.
Seat belts. Rears rattle, fronts need assistance to retract properly. Centre armrest obstructs belt buckles.
Impractical storage. Door pockets are too small and odd shaped. Centre console storage is a great idea but restricted by the part folding armrest.
