Hyundai Ioniq 5 N spotted wearing new production bodywork. The Ioniq 5 N has been undergoing testing at the Nurburgring for some time, and the vehicle has been often observed around Europe. We were instead treated to other N innovations from Hyundai around the time of its planned unveiling with the Ioniq 6.
The earlier Ioniq 5 N sightings revealed a conventional body; however, we were able to see larger brakes, broader fenders, and larger wheels. This most recent round of images shows a performance version that is ready for production and should bring back our smiles. The front bumper is much broader and has large air intakes on both sides compared to the normal Ioniq 5.
The lower lip of the bumper is also substantially lower. Additionally, there are larger air vents in the center that ensure the battery stays cool throughout vigorous driving. Hyundai builds the N series, whether it is an ICE or an electric vehicle, to be driven hard.

The 21″ wheels have a revolutionary double-spoke design that conceals enormous braking rotors. The tires will be the same as those on the Kia EV6 GT, which measures the amount of torque and horsepower.
The front 380 mm brakes and rear 360 mm discs are responsible for slowing the vehicle down. To put that into perspective, the front brakes on the Murcielago LP640 are 355mm in diameter, which is smaller than the rear brakes on the Ioniq 5 N.
That is another indication of how seriously Hyundai takes its work. As we turn around and look at the back, the revised bumper and new, much bigger roof spoiler with the distinctive triangle brake light is once again visible.
The bumper’s low profile, sharper bottom corners, and little extension aid to smooth the airflow. The roof spoiler performs the same function, which is to direct any turbulence as far behind the automobile as is practical. Much larger than one, it
