What is it like on the inside?

The squared-off blocky themes of the outside carry on in here. The main dash is a nicely trimmed horizontal pavement, and the centre console is mostly oblongs. But the double-width screen forsakes the linear rule. It's curved towards the driver.

The screen system works with all the pleasing logic we've come to expect from the Koreans, and there are plenty of extra physical switches for stuff you grab fast: hi-fi, climate, parking cameras, drive mode.

The transmission selector is a big stalk, freeing up even more space in the centre console for storage. It's a double-deck piece of furniture, like you'd find on an EV. As well as a glovebox ahead of the passenger, there's a small lidded compartment that's a UV steriliser. Not for your hands, silly: it only works with the lid shut.

The front centre armrest lid does a double-flip, so it can be used by the people in the front or middle rows. All around the cabin are USBs, charging mats, vents, lights, speakers and cupholders. No-one's going to feel second-class.

What about the space?

The middle bench is split two thirds to one third, and both sections slide and recline independently. They're limo-like if the third row is vacant, but otherwise there'll be requests from the back-back to slide forward a little. No biggie. Seats six and seven have OK legroom with a bit of compromise from those in front, and adult headroom. They too recline a little, but in a moderately upright position there's useful baggage space behind.

Hyundai also expects you might put stuff on the roof, and has even built little handles into the external side trim so you can pull yourself up to reach it.
