Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid PHEV
2017 Hyundai Ioniq plug-in, hybrid & EV: Interior
Compared to those in other Hyundai models, the Ioniq’s dashboard is somewhat simplified. The seven-inch infotainment touchscreen removes the need for several dashboard buttons and is the ‘nerve centre’ of the interior. It’s compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, allowing you to safely (and legally) control features on your smartphone while at the wheel.
Plenty of head, shoulder and legroom is assured for all occupants and in keeping with the Ioniq’s green credentials, the materials used inside are ‘eco-friendly’. Boot space is claimed to be best-in-class, thanks to the batteries being placed under the rear seat instead of under the boot, as is typical of other hybrids. The Hybrid has is 443 litres of boot space, while the Electric has 350. This eclipses the Toyota Prius by around 100 litres and can be expanded to 750 litres if you fold the rear seatbacks flat.
