    Hyundai celebrates another major win for IONIQ 5 N as the Auto Trader New Car Awards 2024

    • Hot Hyundai picks up Rory Reid Award as best car he's tested over the past year. • Electrified N model hailed by Reid for aggressive design and stunning performance • Latest in long line of accolades for game-changer that is rewriting rulebook for EVs • IONIQ 5 N is available to order from £65,000
The amazing Hyundai IONIQ 5 N success story is continuing at full pace after the electric hyper hatch picked up one of the most prestigious honours in the 2024 Auto Trader New Car Awards.

The IONIQ 5 N collected the coveted Rory Reid Award as the car that stands out s the finest he has tested over the past 12 months.

The former presenter of TV's Top Gear cast his vote for the Hyundai ahead of a string of other highly rated new cars, thnks to its compelling blend of sharp design, superb ability on the road and track, and general user-friendliness.

"With aggressive styling, stunning performance and all the practicalities you could ever need, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N really does cover all the bases. It's a truly engaging driving experience that also brings plenty of fun, with surprisingly convincing fake engine noise and gearshifts. If ever there was a car to convince hardcore petrol heads to make the switch to electric, this is it." Rory Reid - Auto Traders YouTube Director

Among a host of key technical advances is a powertrain which delivers greater power output and enhanced performance in battery cooling and braking. The IONIQ 5 N's electric motors spinup to 21,000 RPM, providing up to 609 PS in normal conditions, or 650 PS when the car's N Grin Boost (NGB) feature is engaged, maximised acceleration for up to 10 seconds. 0-62mph is achievable in 3.4 seconds, while a top speed of 161mph is attainable on tracks.

Other upgrades include a strengthened steering column for improved feedback, Electronic Controlled Suspension that adapts suspension stiffness according to the drive mode, and a suite of sophisticated electronic control technology in the E-GMP platform. Highlights include N Pedal, an intelligent software function that provides instant turn-in and enhanced throttle sensitivity for exhilarating cornering, and full variable front and rear N Torque Distribution.

The IONIQ 5 N also sets a new benchmark in terms of emotional engagement for a performance EV, courtesy of N e-shift, which simulates the eight-speed dual-clutch transmissions of internal combustion engine N cars, whilst the additive soundtrack that Rory Reid is such a fan of comes via groundbreaking N Active Sound+ technology.
