Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

There’s plenty of room in the front seats – as much as you’d find in any traditional family hatchback, or a Toyota Prius, for that matter – so two tall adults will have no complaints about head and leg room. The rear seats also have enough leg room for someone tall, but anyone much over average height might find their head brushing the sloped-back rooflining. This is one area where the Ioniq loses out to regular hatchbacks, such as a Volkswagen Golf or Skoda Octavia.

The Ioniq's boot looks considerably bigger than that of a Prius, going by on-paper figures, but it's shallow with a high load lip. It’ll still hold a buggy, though, and to help with longer loads the rear seats split 60/40 and fold down – although, folded down, they do leave an obvious step in the extended load bay. Those of you going for the EV model should bear in mind that its bigger, rear-mounted batteries reduce boot space.
