Hyundai Ioniq 5 Vs Hyundai Ioniq 6

So, this is an unconventional matchup. While the names of the two models are similar, and they share the Hyundai label, the Ioniq 5 and its successor, the Ioniq 6, are in entirely different weight classes. The former is an SUV, while the latter is a sedan. So, while they’re both EVs, you know that they’re both serving different purposes in the market. 

And while they’re both fantastic vehicles, here we’ll compare features on both the EVs and help you figure out which one might be better suited to your needs.

Of course, if you weren’t in the market for an EV and were more keen on a hybrid instead, you might be interested in a 2023 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid for sale in High Point. It has all the advantages you’ve come to expect from the Hyundai label (the build, the pricing, the performance) but in a hybrid sedan format.

Anyway, let’s jump back into the comparison between the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6:

  • Build

As we mentioned before, the Ioniq 5 is an SUV, while the Ioniq 6 is a sedan. So, while they both retain some classic Ioniq design elements and style choices, they’re built pretty differently. The Ioniq 5 is 182.5 inches long and 74.4 inches wide, while the Ioniq 6 is 191.1 inches long and 74 inches wide. So, despite the 6 being a sedan, it has almost 10 inches in length over its predecessor.

If you were interested in a different electric SUV from Hyundai, you might want to consider a 2023 Hyundai Kona Electric for sale in High Point, or any of the neighboring cities.

  • Performance

Both versions of the Ioniq are phenomenal EVs that over-deliver compared to most of the vehicles in their segment. The Ioniq 6 is available with two different battery setups—53 kWh and 77.4 kWh, while the Ioniq 5 comes in 58 kWh and 72.6 kWh battery setups. 

The Ioniq 5 offers an EPA-estimated range of 298 miles, while the Ioniq 6 offers approximately 379 miles. Which makes total sense, considering the Ioniq 5 is a bigger car and hence, needs more juice to power it.


So, which one should I go for?

It’s not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison here, but there are a few deciding factors that could sway your decision one way or the other. The Ioniq 6 is a powerful sedan while the Ioniq 5 is a charming, stylish SUV. Both cars charge superfast thanks to Hyundai’s EV tech, so you won’t have much to worry about in terms of figuring out charging schedules.

The Ioniq 6 is more efficient in terms of performance and aerodynamics given its engine build, and could be considered an EV upgrade in the classic sense, but you can’t take away the SUV performance of the 5. This will come down to your personal segment preference.

Carolina Hyundai of High Point offers so many more Hyundai vehicles besides the Ioniq. Feel free to swing by any time for a test drive of any vehicle you wish.
