Hyundai Ioniq Versus the Tesla Model Y

The New Hyundai Ioniq 5 vs. the New Tesla Model Y: Which Electric SUV Prevails in Peru, IL

Electric SUVs are all the rage in Peru, IL because they don't use gas or release any polluting emissions. The all-new Hyundai Ioniq 5 is quick, powerful, and loaded with intuitive tech features. It also has a longer driving range than most electric vehicles. The new Tesla Model Y is also a fine electric SUV, but here at Schimmer Hyundai of Peru, we think the Ioniq 5 offers Oglesby drivers more value for their money. Read the following comparison to see why.


The new Hyundai Ioniq 5's entry-level trim costs over $15,000 less than the new Tesla Model Y's base model. People in La Salle will appreciate that the Ioniq 5's range-topping Limited model has a starting MSRP that's more than $13,000 less than the Model Y's top-of-the-line Performance trim.

Tech Features

Infotainment System

A feature-rich infotainment system can make slogging through traffic in Ladd more enjoyable. The new Hyundai Ioniq 5 comes standard with a 12.3-inch touch screen that has vivid graphics and responds quickly to inputs. You can also rearrange its icons to prioritize the functions you use the most. Standard infotainment amenities in the Ioniq 5 include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, navigation, and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

The new Tesla Model Y comes with a 15-inch touch screen, but its infotainment system is less user-friendly than the Ioniq 5's. All its functions are controlled by the touch screen, which can make even simple adjustments to the radio or air conditioning a distracting multi-step process. Unlike in the Ioniq 5, the Tesla Model Y's system doesn't have a gauge cluster, and it doesn't support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto apps.


Nothing is more crucial than the safety of you and your family. Granville drivers will have peace of mind with the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 because it comes standard with 14 driver assistance features that help them avoid accidents. The Ioniq 5's blind-spot intervention technology automatically steers the SUV back into its lane if you try to change lanes while a car is in its blind spot.

The new Tesla Model Y only comes with 10 standard advanced active safety features. It doesn't offer blind-spot intervention.

Cabin Space, Materials, and Outward Visibility
