  • In terms of safety, the BYD Seal offers 9 airbags, whereas the Hyundai Ioniq 5 only gets 6 airbags. Safety equipment such as a 360-degree camera, front and rear parking sensors, and full suite of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are available with both EVs.

Both the BYD Seal and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 are feature-loaded and offer a claimed driving range of more than 600km. However, the Seal has a larger battery pack and is also more powerful than the Ioniq 5.

So, if you're someone who prioritises performance and doesn't mind a low-slung sedan, the BYD Seal is for you. On the other hand, if you prefer an SUV body style, need more space in the cabin and boot, and don’t want to wince everytime you go over a badly designed speed hump, the  Hyundai Ioniq 5 might be more suited to you.
