2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5

Morton Grove, IL. May 3, 2022 – Consumer Guide® Automotive, the leading publisher of authoritative, unbiased new-car reviews for 55 years, today announced a new addition to its list of 2022 Best Buy Award winners. A Consumer Guide Best Buy represents the finest balance of attributes and value in its class.

Consumer Guide Best Buys

Consumer Guide announces its annual roster of Best Buy award winners in November or December every year. That time frame usually works well, since most all-new or redesigned vehicles for a given model year have been introduced by late September or October. That’s not always the case, however—this year, a latecomer to the 2022 class of new passenger vehicles has impressed us enough that we are making it a mid-year addition to our 2022 Best Buys roster.

Consumer Guide Best Buys The 2022 Ioniq 5, Hyundai’s all-new pure-electric compact crossover SUV, was unveiled in production form in February 2021. However, the first press-preview drives didn’t happen until mid-December 2021—after our deadline for Best Buy voting. Now that we’ve had the chance to have the Ioniq 5 through our office fleet and test it thoroughly, we’ve decided that it’s definitely Best Buy material—and you can read our Best Buy review here.

“The Ioniq 5 is an ambitiously designed vehicle that blends avant-garde styling and everyday practicality, and it shows Hyundai is serious about the electric-vehicle market,” said Consumer Guide Publisher Tom Appel.

Since 1967, Consumer Guide Automotive’s award-winning editorial team has used a rigorous and comprehensive evaluation process to identify the vehicles worthy of serious consideration by consumers. The editors utilize objective criteria, such as price, features, performance, accommodations, fuel economy, reliability records, and resale value, to assess each vehicle.

The key to Consumer Guide Automotive’s annual Best Buy Awards is the careful evaluation of every aspect of each vehicle as it relates to consumers’ real-world driving experience. It is this thoroughness that leads consumers to check Consumer Guide Automotive reviews before buying a new vehicle.

Consumer Guide’s editorial team drives more than 100,000 miles every year evaluating what these vehicles do well—and what they don’t. Whether it is driving through the city, on highways, in rural areas, on long trips, or simply picking up the kids at school, these vehicles are tested in the same way that typical car buyers would use their vehicles.
