Hyundai Ioniq 5 video review – UK-spec car tested by cinch

Will Hyundai’s VW ID.4 rival make a mark in the growing electric car arena? We take a 73kWh Ioniq 5 to Rockingham to find out

That’s right, internet, cinch is entering the world of online video reviewing with a corker of a first car: Hyundai’s new Ioniq 5. It’s quite possibly one of the most exciting electric cars of 2021, if not the most exciting, when it comes to real-world stuff. It looks great, it packs a lot of punch – 305hp of the stuff in our test car – and it comes brimming with practical bragging rights. It looks like a hatchback, but rest assured this is a big car, more comparable with mid-sized SUVs than city runabouts.

It’s a big car by all measures, actually, with a level of technical prowess that backs an all-round bold and futuristic design. The 73kWh battery pack of our test car comes with claims for up to 300 miles of range, while the twin-electric motors and all-wheel drive ought to enable strong all-round performance. But, as plenty of other cars have shown over the years, a mix of great ingredients don’t always make a delicious meal. Which is where our first video review comes in…

For our opener, cinch Motoring and Lifestyle Editor, Sam Sheehan, jumps behind the wheel of Hyundai’s promising new EV to see whether it stacks up. We hope you like it; if you do, don’t forget to like and subscribe to the channel, because more video reviews are on the way. And get involved with your comments on the Ioniq 5 welcomer.
