2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Test Drive Review: Instant Icon



Behind the second row, the Ioniq 5 provides 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space. If you fold the seats, it opens up to 59.3 cubic feet. There’s a small storage box up front that we’d be embarrassed to call a frunk, but it has enough space to fit a home charging cable.A Universal Island moveable center console provides enough space for a large handbag plus two cupholders and USB ports. On the top Limited trim, a full glass roof (with a closable cover) makes the cabin feel even more open.As for the technology, dual 12-inch screens supply Hyundai’s familiar infotainment infrastructure, which is easy to operate. There’s no wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, but our complaints with the system end there. The eight-speaker Bose audio system sounds ok, but it lacks the punch of the Meridian sound system in the EV6.Every Ioniq 5 comes well-equipped with safety features such as Highway Driving Assist, smart cruise control, blind-spot monitors, and more. Some key safety features locked to the top Limited trim are the blind-spot view monitors in the gauge cluster, Remote Smart Parking Assist, and Remote Smart Parking Assist.
