Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Interior & Cargo Rating

2022 Ioniq Hybrid Interior

The interior of the Ioniq is nothing special. It is well-built, with a fair number of standard features, but it is neither lavish nor overly spacious. Those up front will have little to complain about, but those in the back will bemoan the low roof and raised seats to make space for the battery. The choice of materials seems to follow the trend of affordability, too, with plenty of hard plastics on display. At least the trunk doesn't suffer too much. The infotainment suite is easy to use, thanks to the large eight-inch touchscreen, and the rest of the controls for the features being laid out for ease of access.

Seating and Interior Space

As a compact hatchback, the Ioniq Hybrid isn't the most spacious of cars. Those up front will have little to complain about, with ample head- and legroom to spare, as well as six-way power front seats as standard. When you take into account the smart positioning of the driver's seat, this makes the Ioniq a comfortable driver. However, those in the back would make a strong case against it being a good car for passengers. The rear seats lose quite a bit of headroom to the sloping roof, and legroom isn't impressive, either. This is fine if it'll only ever be you and the kids, but try transporting a few adults around town and complaints will pour in within minutes of setting out. The upper trims get access to heated front seats. Accessibility fairs much the same as spaciousness, with wide-opening front doors making entering and exiting easy for the front seats, but the rear doors are more narrow, which is only exacerbated by the sloping roofline.

Interior Colors and Materials

The Hyundai Ioniq may not be one of the brand's more premium models, with plenty of hard, cheap plastics on display. However, it's still well-built and feels solid. All but the top-most trim comes upholstered in premium cloth, in a choice of either Gray or Black. The Limited retains the same palette but upgrades to genuine leather. A leather steering wheel and gear shifter are standard from the SE upwards, too.

2022 Ioniq Hybrid Trunk and Cargo Space

In its hybrid configuration, the Hyundai Ioniq is relatively practical for a hybrid vehicle. However, it isn't the most spacious hybrid on the market, offering 26.5 cubic feet of trunk space, as opposed to the Prius' 27.4 cubic feet. But the Hyundai has enough space for most day-to-day needs, easily accommodating a week's worth of groceries, or more. The cargo area is also easily accessed thanks to the large aperture created by the liftgate. If you need a little extra space, the rear seats can be folded in a 60/40 split, but due to the positioning of the battery pack beneath the seats, this doesn't free up a lot of space. Due to the larger battery, the Plug-in Ioniq sacrifices a bit more trunk space, supplying only 23 cubic feet. It's not a huge difference, but it does cost the hatchback some points when the PHEV already struggles against the competition.

There are a variety of small-item storage options around the cabin. Passengers in the front get access to a large bin near the gear shifter, supplemented by a somewhat narrow center console bin, and a wide slot set within the dashboard. Each of the four doors has a pocket large enough to fit a water bottle, and there is a glovebox, although it's a bit on the small side. Strangely enough, there are no standard cupholders in either row of seats.

2022 Ioniq Hybrid Infotainment and Features


There is a fair number of standard features on the Ioniq Hybrid, with basic conveniences including proximity keyless entry, push-button start, and power windows. Dual-zone climate control comes standard, along with cruise control, but this is upgraded to adaptive cruise control on the SEL. The six-way manually adjustable driver's seat is upgraded to a ten-way power seat at from the SE trim level. The Blue and Plug-in SE get a 4.2-inch driver-information display, while the rest of the range gets a seven-inch model. The safety suite improves as you move up the trim levels, starting with lane-keep assist, forward-collision avoidance, and high-beam assist, with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, and pedestrian detection added along the way. A power tilt-and-slide sunroof is available at the higher trim levels.


Even the entry-level Ioniq Blue comes standard with an eight-inch touchscreen interface that supports Bluetooth streaming, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. A six-speaker sound system channels the audio for the majority of the trims. The SE expands the listening options with HD Radio and SiriusXM, while navigation is added when you upgrade to the Limited. The top-tier trim also gets the largest 10.25-inch touchscreen interface and upgrades to the eight-speaker premium Harman Kardon sound system. USB ports come standard across the range, but a wireless charging pad is added to the SEL and Limited.
