The car was able to take a record number of 11 boxes in the trunk (with a small adjustment to the motorized rear seats), aside from vans.
The front trunk (frunk) appears to be useable to store charging cables or small things, but not banana boxes.
After folding the rear seats, the total number of banana boxes on-board increased to 25, which is the best result after the noticeably bigger Tesla Model X (27). Another plus of the Ioniq 5 is its motorized hatch.

- Tesla Model X 5 seater 10+1/28

To better understand how high this result is, let's take a look at a chart:
The other recent test concerns a Citroen ë-C4, which notes a better than expected result of 7 boxes in the trunk and 19 total. The car has no frunk.
This result basically matches the Volkswagen ID.3 hatchback, which indicate that the stand-alone EVs are more spacious than a bit bigger models, built on multi-energy platforms.
