  • Gets a bigger 84kWh battery pack offering more range

  • Gets tweaked suspension and chassis for a more comfortable ride

  • Facelifted Ioniq 5 and N Line variants will make way to global markets soon

After taking the leash off and releasing the unhinged Ioniq 5 N into the world, Hyundai has now given the standard family-friendly Ioniq 5 a mild facelift. There’s also a new N Line derivative that has been unveiled, boasting sportier cosmetic tweaks over the standard car. There are new features and even a bigger battery on offer, so without any further delay, here’s what you need to know about the facelifted Ioniq 5:

Ioniq 5 facelift design

In all honesty, Hyundai didn’t really have to tweak anything on the exterior of the Ioniq 5. The retro-modern styling is still undeniably striking and hence, only subtle tweaks have been made to make it look fresh. Both the front and rear bumpers have been slightly restyled, causing a 20mm increase in length. No other dimensional parameter has been changed.

There are new aerodynamic wheels in profile, which work in tandem with the 50mm extended rear spoiler to eke out the maximum efficiency possible. While not many will be able to tell apart the facelift from the standard model, the changes do make the Ioniq 5 look a tad fresh and compliments the car’s relatively low and wide stance.

Just like the exterior, only minute changes have been made to the cabin of the Ioniq 5 facelift. Overall dashboard design is the same, and so are the dual 12.3-inch digital screens, which now get a black bezel as opposed to white. The centre console has been tweaked to accommodate frequently used functions like heated and ventilated seats, while the wireless charging pad has now been uplifted to be positioned alongside the cup holders.

The two spoke steering wheel has been replaced by a new three-spoke design with interactive pixel lights. Hyundai also says that the arrangement of the infotainment and the AC controls have also been tweaked to help operational convenience.

While it continues with features such as wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, powered and ventilated front seats with memory function, and an 8-speaker Bose sound system, there are a few new additions like an in-build camera, second row remote folding and an improved ADAS suite.

Ioniq 5 facelift powertrain

As part of the facelift, Hyundai has made a few significant changes underneath the shell of the Ioniq 5. There’s a bigger 84kWh battery pack on offer, which increases its electric range, while there have been changes made to improve the ride and comfort as well. An updated shock absorber has been introduced, cowl crossbar rigidity has been increased, stiffness of the vehicle body has been strengthened, and even noise from the e-motor has been optimised.

The quantum of the range increased remains to be seen, as Hyundai hasn’t yet mentioned it. For reference, the India-spec 217PS/350Nm rear-wheel drive powertrain with the 72.6kWh battery pack offers an ARAI-claimed driving range of 631km.

The pre-facelift international models use a bigger 77.4kWh battery pack with both rear- and all-wheel drivetrain options.

Ioniq 5 N Line

Just like the typical N Line treatment that we’re used to here in India, the Ioniq 5 N Line is no different. It is more aggressive compared to the standard car, but not nearly as aggressive and mad as the full fledged Ioniq 5 N.

So it does get visual changes in the form of sportier front and rear bumpers along with exclusive 20-inch aluminum wheels. The cabin also gets the typical N Line treatment with N-specific steering wheel, dashboard, headliner, and even the sports seat with the N emblem. Red stitching provides a contrast to the cabin and there are also N Line exclusive metal pedals. 

Hyundai says the facelifted Ioniq 5 and the Ioniq 5 N will be made available to the Korean market in March 2024, followed by a gradual roll out to other global markets. So we can expect it to make its way to India, probably sometime in late 2024. You can expect a slight bump in prices over the current 45.95 (ex-showroom) lakh price tag. It’ll continue to rival the likes of the Volvo XC40 Recharge and the Kia EV6 in India.
