Hyundai Ioniq 5 Luggage Test: How Much Cargo Space?

I’ve already done a baggage test on the Kia EV6, Mustang Mach-E, and VW ID.4, so now I’ll throw some bags on (and in) the Hyundai Ioniq 5. On paper, there are 27.2 cubic feet behind the Ioniq 5. The backseat is worse than all of the above, except for Kia’s cousin (24.4). It’s better than expected in that luggage test … Ioniq 5 doesn’t follow.

For reference, all of the above electric vehicles have a cargo area on the smaller side of the ICE compact SUV, close to mid-compact models such as the VW Taos and Kia Sertos. Each has a very long cargo area, but they all suffer to some extent due to the aggressively sloping roofline. The Ioniq 5 looks like a nice-looking square hatchback, but suffers more than most of the time.

Note the floor height of the Ioniq 5 in addition to the roof / lift gate angle. This cargo area is not very tall.

This is one of the big bags I use and doesn’t fit snugly under the cargo cover (a good way to show the height of the cargo area). Thus, it stretched beyond the lift gate angle. Notice how the inside of the lift gate is scooped up as opposed to the outside of the box.

So don’t forget to remove the cargo cover before you leave the house. But in case I forget, I always do this test with the cover attached first.

As with all luggage tests I do, two medium-sized roller suitcases (26 inches long, 16 wide and 11 depth) that need to be checked in at the airport, and two rollboard suitcases that barely fit overhead (24L). )Use the. x 15W x 10D), and one small roll board (23L x 15W x 10D) that fits easily. I also include my wife’s luxury overnight bag (21L x 12W x 12D) to get things a little tidy.

Everything except the fancy bag fits, but as you can see, the cargo cover needs to be facing up. This obstructs most of the rear view. It also looks like a Dorkie.

Or you could install my four smallest bags with the cargo cover attached, leaving plenty of space for small items. This is where I really started to realize that this is a space of strange size and shape. Often there wasn’t enough space left to fill the bag.

OK. Remove the cargo cover. Unfortunately, unlike other Hyundai cars, the Ioniq 5 has no place to store cargo covers.

The underfloor space is small, but nothing is particularly useful for this test. I think it would be possible to remove the floor to provide luggage space, but the floor is not very flat, which makes loading more complicated.

There was no good way to get the most out of this space. The moment I thought it was successfully Tetris, the gate didn’t close. Basically, all the bags fit in the rest of the space, but it’s not easy.

In contrast, the same number of bags fit neatly and easily into the Mach-E, but I think there wasn’t much space left. The EV6 was definitely better, despite its low cargo specs. ID.4 is the King of the Hill of Electricity.

Wait a second! Ioniq5 has a trick on its sleeve. Or rather, in the back seat.

The back seat slides! The Ioniq 5 wheelbase is longer than the Palisade, so you can slide the backseat forward to add cargo space and actually leave a fair amount of foot space.

The seats are long in front, so I was left with plenty of room for this nice and neat arrangement.It wonders to me: this How did Ioniq 5 get the number of 27.7 cubic feet?

I’m guessing no, and I think this is just one of those cargo areas that counteracts what the nasty shape would otherwise be a fair amount.

Oh, and Frank. H is. Lifting the cover gives you plenty of space to hold the charging cord and perhaps a few books. Mobile library?

Oh yeah, it’s Ioniq 5. Strange styling, weird cargo space.
