FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 9, 2022 
– Hyundai’s all-electric IONIQ 5 has received the Autotrader Best New Cars for 2022 accolade. The IONIQ 5 is one of only 12 vehicles, including cars, trucks, and SUVs, to receive this important award. The experts at Autotrader examined more than 300 models, ultimately narrowing them down to a list of 12 new vehicles that are a “cut above the rest.”

“This award speaks to the outstanding work our design, engineering, manufacturing and product development teams did to launch IONIQ 5 in such a competitive marketplace,” said Olabisi Boyle, vice president, product planning and mobility strategy, Hyundai Motor North America. “IONIQ 5 has the right blend of range, power, comfort, interior space and advanced technology for today’s drivers.”  

The Best New Cars for 2022 is comprised of 12 vehicles selected by a team of experts at Autotrader, who collectively tested and ranked new models using a range of criteria. The editors focused on models that would be available for purchase within the next nine months and included vehicles they think offer significant value or groundbreaking technology.

“Electric vehicles have matured beyond just traditional gasoline cars fitted for electric powertrains later in life,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “Now, cars like the Hyundai IONIQ 5 are purpose-built EVs designed to be electric from the very beginning. This matters because when you eliminate the need for a large gas tank and delete a huge chunk of metal from between the two front wheels, the designer is freer to make dramatically different choices in terms of the car’s overall look, interior space and technology. And our editors like the way the IONIQ 5 looks.”
