Hyundai’s New Ioniq 5 EV Gets Best-Possible Top Safety Pick+ Rating from IIHS

You might not be able to get your hands on one right now, but this still qualifies as good news for those interested in the Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric crossover. The model has received the best-possible Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) after recent testing by the American agency.

To earn the Top Safety Pick+ rating, a vehicle must first get the best-possible Good rating in six different crash tests, and it must also be at least available with a front crash prevention system that earns either Advanced or Superior ratings for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian tests. Then, it must come standard (in all trims) with a headlight system that gets Good or Acceptable ratings.

Note that Hyundai made adjustments to improve the head restraints on the front-row seating in the Ioniq 5 in December 2021, and the new Top Safety Pick+ rating applies to vehicles built after that change was implemented. Since then, said the IIHS, “The Ioniq 5 meets all the requirements for the higher-tier award. Its standard front crash prevention system earns superior ratings in the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.” It added that the different trims of the model each come with headlight systems earning Good or Acceptable ratings.
