The charging socket is positioned on the nearside rear flank, which often proves to be a better place than the car’s nose when charging on a driveway, for example, if you aim to avoid backing onto the street.
Inside, the Ioniq looks smart and modern, with pleasantly finished plastics. There are plenty of places to store oddments, including a good sized glovebox, deep armrest cubby and a useful tray in front of the centre console. A wireless phone-charging receptacle is also offered.
It’s relatively easy to get comfortable behind the wheel, with plenty of seat and wheel adjustment.
A seven-inch digital instrument panel is a standard fitment, as is an eight-inch central touchscreen with satnav. Despite the touchscreen, heating and ventilation controls are overseen using traditional buttons and knobs.
