Hyundai Ioniq 5 XRT glimpsed during testing, know with which features it will be launched?

Hyundai, a South Korean carmaker, is now developing a new off-road SUV specifically for the Indian market. Hyundai Ioniq 5 XRT will be the name under which it is introduced. It was observed in India while being tested. The test mule provides an early look at the future car's appearance.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 XRT off-road version is shown in spy photos, and these images reveal a few differences from the regular model. Inform us of it.

The leaked photos show that the Ioniq 5 XRT will get a new front bumper with accents shaped like cubes, while the back will only get small adjustments. A new bumper is anticipated, potentially featuring an integrated diffuser. Hyundai has been adding the XRT to its UV range in other markets, so it seems the Ioniq 5 will do the same with a new rugged variant.

Due to being covered, not much information is available. However, the electric model is expected to change more than surface-level changes. The test mule sees new roof rails and black plastic body cladding, while it also stands out with new tyres along with thicker side walls. It seems that the ground clearance will also be more than the standard model. 18-inch alloy wheels can be seen on the car.

If we look at the performance, it is expected that the dual motor with an all-wheel drive system will be retained in the upcoming vehicle. This motor produces 320 bhp power and 604 Nm of peak torque. The recently introduced Ioniq 5 facelift brings an 84 kWh battery pack with increased range which may also make it to the XRT variant.
