Hyundai Ioniq 5 shows well in the Moose Test

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 did well in the km77.com moose test and passed through the course successfully at 80 km/h.

The infamous km77 moose test tests the ability of a vehicle to swerve at high speeds to avoid a suddenly appearing obstacle, like a moose.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 drove through the pylons without hitting any cones at 80 km/h.

This puts the Korean SUV in third, tied with the Toyota GR Yaris.

The only two vehicles that have placed better are the Tesla Model Y and Tesla Model 3. Both of these vehicles avoided the cones at 83 km/h.

Although, we should say that when the regenerative braking was turned down, the Ioniq 5 did not perform as well.

In fact, the vehicle failed to get through the course at 78 km/h. The successful runs happened when the car turned its regenerative braking up to three out of four.

The testers noted that the vehicle was not the most nimble-feeling vehicle around the slalom course. However, the body motions were smooth.

Some will say that this moose test result should be taken with an asterisk, but the Hyundai Ioniq 5 certainly can pass this challenging test at the end of the day.
