2023 Toyota Mirai Interior and Cargo

Toyota Mirai Interior & Cargo Rating

2023 Mirai Interior

The Mirai has a stylish interior, along with the new driver-focused drivetrain layout. The main touchscreen, shifter, and drive mode selector are angled toward the driver. Quality is what you'd expect from a car in the $50k to $60k price bracket, and the sporty touches like the dual-tone steering wheel on the Limited model are welcome.

The Mirai branding and H2O button to the left of the digital instrument cluster feels slightly unnecessary, but it does add a certain feel-good factor. Being an environmentally friendly car at heart, Toyota took the animal-friendly route with the interior. No cows were harmed in the making of the Mirai, which is something the average customer will appreciate. There's also special insulating material used to minimize the need for air conditioning or heating, something we noticed when temperatures were hitting a hundred degrees outside.

Seating and Interior Space

When Toyota introduced the hybrid Prius, it arrived as an economy car. That meant it had an economy-sized car interior, albeit with heavy styling, so people felt they were inside something different. That's not the case with Toyota's hydrogen car. Like the outside, the inside of the Mirai is contemporary, stylish, and has a premium finish to it. It'll seat five adults, but only four with genuine comfort. There's plenty of rear headroom for taller passengers, as well as 33.1 inches of legroom. Up at the front, there's a truly spacious 42.2 inches of legroom to stretch out in, and the seats are Lexus comfortable and adjustable. It's easy to find the ideal driving position, and despite the Mirai's curves, visibility all around is excellent.

Interior Colors and Materials

As mentioned earlier, Toyota didn't harm a single cow to upholster the interior of the Mirai. Instead, you get SofTex, which is Toyota marketing speak for leatherette. It looks good and feels just like the real deal.

The XLE is only available with Black SofTex with silver interior trim. The Limited is available with Black perforated SofTex trim with silver or copper trim. You can also go with white perforated SofTex with silver or copper interior trim. We loved the black upholstery when paired with the copper trim - it gives the interior an upper-class feel that works really well.

2023 Mirai Trunk and Cargo Space

Toyota sacrificed practicality in favor of attractive design, which is evident when looking at the old gen model in comparison to the latest iteration. The 9.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity is way below par, either way. The trunk is shallow, most likely because of the drivetrain components beneath it. A weekend away for four people is not an option in this car, so you'll have to use one of your 21 rental car days. Doing the weekly grocery run should be possible, but only if you're a skilled packer. However, it's worth remembering that the rear seats don't fold and split.

The Mirai also has the essential interior storage spaces you'd expect, including door pockets, four cupholders, and a storage compartment underneath the center armrest.

2023 Mirai Infotainment and Features


Toyota is selling the Mirai as an alternative in the executive car segment. This means a prospective owner is asked to sacrifice a lot of power and prestige in favor of the environmentally friendly option. It's a bitter pill, but one that's easier to swallow once you look at the standard features list. From the base model, you get keyless entry, wireless charging, four USB ports, an eight-inch digital instrument cluster, heated and power-adjustable front seats. While the base XLE gets dual-zone climate control, the Limited ups this to three zones, and throws in a rear touchscreen control panel, manual rear-seat sunshades, ambient lighting, a digital rearview mirror, and heated and ventilated front and rear seats.

As standard, both models come with Toyota's Safety Sense 2.5+ driver assistance safety suite. It consists of pre-collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, auto high beams, full-speed range active cruise control, and road sign assist. In addition, both models also have blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The Limited trim adds front and rear parking assistance with automatic braking, a color head-up display, and a surround-view camera.


Adding to the already long feature list, the Mirai also comes with a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen that boasts Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, satellite radio, onboard navigation, and Wi-Fi. To top the system off, it's all hooked up to a 14-speaker JBL sound system. While there are better sound systems available in other premium vehicles, the JBL system in the Mirai is still a clear, full-sounding experience that has no glaring faults.
