    Come on man! How can you even dare to say that parking wit you forced to be on a side of the car is like a Tesla? I'm not going to tell you how it sounds hearing you say that, but you should review your script, unless you are a salesman paid by Hyundai...

    This car looks weird to me. Oddly out of scale proportions. From the thumbnail, it looks cross between a Fiat Ritmo and an Austin Allegro. in other photos, it looks like the Giugiaro Golf of the 70s. Then there's the Espace4 interior details. Don't get me wrong, i love all those cars I mentioned, but here it looks contrived and oddly interpreted.

    So, you can easily get your car into a tight parking space, making it difficult for everyone else to get in their cars. Brilliant.

    Appear to be a very fine vehicle. Thanks for the review. For Tesla to be matched the availability and manufacturing costs also have to be similar. I hope Hyundai is not impeded by low battery supply. In my part of the world the Ionic 5 won't arrive before December and it doesn't appear that very many will be available.

    "And even a solar roof that isn't available in the UK, for obvious reasons" I'm not from the UK. Is this a joke about you guys not getting any sun there, or is there something else that I'm just out of the loop on because I'm not from there?

      Saying Tesla is the standard for EVs is like saying Iphones are the standard for phones. It's simply stupid or fanboy talk. I'm happy that the EV market is now big enough for competition and innovation. Trying things and being different is a very good sign of an healthy market. Can't we all agree that people have different needs and tastes without shitting on others ?

    What a great looking car. If I could afford one, it would definitely be top of my list. On a side point, I particularly liked the fact that the brake lights came on when he was manoeuvring the car on its own. I was behind a Renault Zoe a few weeks back. I was towing my caravan so was a decent distance from it doing about 25mph. The Zoe was a '19 plate. The driver had they're indicator on to turn right for a wee while. Then the car slowed and all but stopped very quickly for a right turn at an entrance to a housing estate - all without any brake lights coming on at all! I had to brake sharply and if I hadn't been so far back I would have definitely hit it. I'm presuming it was the regen brakes doing it, like 1 pedal driving, but unless the car was faulty, then this is very dangerous.

      You offten see on tv car adverts (some options on model shown not available in UK) but i thought the same, we still get sun (sometimes) and they work off just daylight too , so you would think it would be on the options list.
