Hyundai Ioniq 5 XRT 2025 Captured Adopting Off-Road Style Cues

Hyundai just added a high-performance N model to the Ioniq 5 lineup, with 641 horsepower (478 kW / 650 PS). The business is now preparing to go in a very different path by releasing an XRT model that is more durable and suitable for off-road driving.

The heavily camouflaged Ioniq 5 XRT, which was recently sighted in the United States undergoing testing, seems a lot more durable than the basic model. The electric car has undergone modifications that include the addition of roof rails and black plastic body wrapping. Along with the larger tires, you can also make out what looks to be an elevated ride height.

The XRT now has a redesigned front bumper with cube-shaped embellishments, so the changes don’t stop there. Although the rear end seems to be the same, there might be some modifications hidden from view.

Later this year, there should be more information available, but Hyundai has been gradually growing the XRT family. A variety of models, including the Tucson, Palisade, Santa Cruz, and Santa Fe, are offered with the tough trim. The XRT sports dark chrome flourishes, roof rails, and black accents on the latter SUV. Along with the extra ground clearance of about 1.5 inches (38 mm), buyers may also expect 18-inch wheels shod in 30-inch all-terrain tires.

The Ioniq 5 XRT appears to have similar modifications, which contributes to the model’s less hatchback-like appearance. Given that Hyundai pitches the car as a crossover, that is a welcome shift.

At this point, not much is known about the car, but it most likely has a dual-motor all-wheel drive setup. A combined output of 320 horsepower (239 kW / 324 PS) and 446 lb-ft (604 Nm) of torque would probably come from this configuration. A 77.4 kWh battery pack with a range of about 260 miles (418 km) is also something we may anticipate.

Nevertheless, Hyundai just unveiled a revised Ioniq 5 in Korea that boasts a bigger 84 kWh battery and a longer range. As such, it is possible that these upgrades will also be included in the XRT version.
