The Hyundai Ioniq 5 of the model year 2023 gets some exciting updates. Thus, the capacity of the battery increases, the power increases and also the range turns out to be higher than in the previous year, in which one in February 2022 last already enlarged the battery as well.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 (2023) with improvements
With more than 14,000 new registrations since its launch in Germany and several test wins in comparisons, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a real success for the automaker. “In order to expand our position as a technology leader in this continuously growing competition, the IONIQ 5 will now have numerous new features and improvements,” revealed Jürgen Keller, Managing Director of Hyundai Motor Germany.
For the 2023 model year, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 comes with a number of improvements. Among other things, the capacity of the larger of the two drive batteries on offer increases by almost seven percent.
Which, in combination with the larger battery, provides more power. In addition, camera-based exterior mirrors are available for the electric CUV for the first time in Germany. The suspension has also been retuned and is now said to realize a better driving experience, while the new Atlas White matte paint provides a fresh look.
New battery and more range
Improved features on the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (2023) include the battery, which now has a capacity of 77.4 kWh, replacing the previous 72.6 kWh battery. In combination with rear-wheel drive and 19-inch wheels, the range according to WLTP is thus now more than 500 kilometers.
At the same time, engine output increases to 168 kW or 229 hp with rear-wheel drive, and with all-wheel drive the Ioniq 5 even reaches 239 kW or 325 hp.
Also new are optional camera-based exterior mirrors. The digital side mirrors (DSM) are designed to reduce drag and provide a clear view even in bad weather. Camera images are displayed on separate monitors in the door panels.
Standard on all model variants is now the battery heating system. To improve charging conditions, a new preconditioning function adjusts the temperature of the traction battery.
This is said to improve charging performance even in cold temperatures. If you specify a fast-charging station from a destination within the navigation, the high-voltage battery is already brought to the optimum temperature during the journey.
The ride comfort of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (2023) has also been improved once again. This is made possible by a modified chassis that uses optimized frequency-selective shock absorbers to improve the response of the suspension and damping of the front and rear axles. According to Hyundai, this should result in greater comfort and better handling on poor roads.
In addition to the aforementioned digital exterior mirrors (1,300 euros), new additions to the range include the matte paint finish in Atlas White (990 euros) and the Assistance package (1,000 euros). The latter includes Highway Driving Assist (HDA 2.0) and the intersection function for the autonomous emergency braking assistant.

The Ioniq 5 with 168 kW/229 hp, 77.4-kWh battery, rear-wheel drive starts from 47,900 euros, while the model with 239 kW/325 hp, 77.4-kWh battery and all-wheel drive is priced at 59,200 euros in conjunction with the TECHNIQ package.
