2023 Ioniq 5 Key Safety Features

Hyundai Ioniq 5 safety is taken care of by a host of passive and active safety features. Minor parking lot accidents should be mitigated by the standard rearview monitor with parking guidance and rear park distance control. SEL models build on this with front-mounted parking sensors, while the Limited receives reverse parking collision avoidance and the gimmicky remote smart parking assist feature.

On the road, you'll be kept safe by standard forward collision avoidance, lane-keep and blind-spot assist, a driver attention warning system, rear cross-traffic assist, and a safe exit assist. Buyers will also appreciate the standard seatbelt reminder and a rear occupant alert. Upgrade to the Limited model if you want all the best safety features, as the priciest model of the bunch receives a blind-spot view monitor, a surround-view monitor, a head-up display, and rain-sensing wipers. While all models receive smart cruise control (with stop-and-go capabilities), the SE has to make do with HDA I; SEL and Limited models gain the more advanced HDA II system.

If somehow, you still end up in a ditch, the aforementioned safety rating and seven airbags should keep you protected.
