Hyundai Ioniq 5 gets new range-topping Namsan Edition trim

Now available with a bigger battery, Hyundai has also reworked the electric Ioniq 5’s trim lineup

  • Namsan Edition features panoramic roof
  • Price hikes across the range
  • Updated models available to order now

Hyundai has reconfigured the Ioniq 5 range for the 2023 model year with revised pricing and trims, plus a new flagship model: the Namsan Edition. This top-spec trim level boasts a generous amount of standard equipment including an exclusive panoramic sunroof, as well as digital side mirrors. 

Hyundai Ioniq 5 vs Kia EV6: which should you buy?

Models in the updated Ioniq 5 lineup are available to order now. All of this follows a recent update for Carbuyer’s favourite electric car which introduced the larger 77.4kWh battery from the Kia EV6, as well as more efficient battery conditioning and optional digital wing mirrors.

As before, the Ioniq 5 range kicks off with the SE Connect model, which now starts from £39,400 – an increase of around £1,800. This model gets a smaller 58kWh battery and a range of up to 238 miles. Standard equipment remains generally the same, with a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, wireless mobile phone charging and adaptive cruise control. However, Hyundai has now introduced a new smart frequency damper setup, which should benefit comfort as well as driving dynamics. 

Moving up the range, the Premium model sees a price increase of around £2,000, now starting from £41,900. Buyers also have the option of stepping up to the aforementioned 77.4kWh battery model with either rear or all-wheel-drive; from £45,400 and £48,900 respectively. Standard equipment includes an upgraded interior with soft-touch materials and part-leather upholstery, ambient lighting and a sliding centre console. The updated models now also boast a digital rear-view mirror as well as a V2L (Vehicle-To-Load) system, which was previously a paid optional extra. This allows owners to plug in electrical items to their Ioniq 5 and use it as a power source.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Ultimate was previously the range-topping trim level; this is only available with the larger battery pack and now starts from £48,400 for the rear-wheel-drive model, and £51,900 for all-wheel-drive cars. Hyundai is keen to justify the near-£2,500 price hike with an expanded range of standard equipment that includes blind-spot monitoring and a 360-degree camera system. This comes on top of a set of 20-inch alloy wheels, heated and ventilated front seats plus heated rear seats, a head up display, and a BOSE sound system. 

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Namsan Edition is named after the highest peak in Seoul, South Korea, and starts from £52,900, with all-wheel-drive costing £2,500 extra. This model will debut a full-length panoramic sunroof as standard, as well as digital wing mirrors which will improve efficiency as well as add to the Ioniq 5’s already-futuristic look. 

Namsan Edition cars will get an efficient heat pump and the Tech Pack, which are both also available for £995 on Premium and Ultimate models. The latter includes an electric driver’s seat with memory function, electrically retracting door handles, parking collision avoidance and remote control parking.
