Hyundai Outlines 2023 Model Year Changes

Hyundai has announced lineup changes for the 2023 model year. The biggest one is the discontinuation of three models: the Ioniq, Veloster N, and Accent. The company replaced these vehicles with two new N models, dedicated electric vehicles, and the pint-sized Venue. Most models carry over nearly unchanged with new exterior colors and more trims getting the larger 10.25- or 12.3-inch main touchscreen on many models. Additionally, Hyundai’s Highway Driving Assist semi-autonomous system is now standard on the Santa Fe Hybrid and PHEV, and Palisade. Hyundai also included over-the-air (OTA) update capability to infotainment systems on the Kona and Santa Fe lineup. Certain trims of the Venue and Elantra also get a larger instrument cluster display while the Sonata Hybrid loses the solar roof on the Limited trim.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 AWD Goes Farther

One year after its debut, the Ioniq 5 gets meaningful changes including the addition of a battery heating system to all trim, a battery preconditioning feature, and an increased towing capacity of 2,300 pounds on long-range models. AWD models also get a 10-mile range increase to 266 miles versus the previous model year. A new exterior color, Gravity Gold Matte, has also been added. It will be the second matte exterior color for the Ioniq 5 following Shooting Star Gray.

Palisade Gets Major Upgrades

For the 2023 model year, the flagship Palisade gets a major refresh including a new front fascia, revised headlights, and larger screens. It also adds new features including a heated third row, the Ergo-motion massaging driver’s seat, and a 12.0-inch main touchscreen. Certain trims get remote parking and Highway Driving Assist II, which adds automatic lane changing. The XRT trim joins the lineup as the rugged, off-road-looking member of the lineup. However, if you’re looking for a luxury-oriented Palisade, the swanky Calligraphy trim returns as the range-topper.
