It’s virtually impossible to get a true understanding of a new car’s dimensions and stance until we see it alongside models we already know.

A few weeks ago, Hyundai’s electric spinoff brand Ioniq unveiled its first model, simply called the 5. Everyone seemed to agree that it is a good looking car, but something didn’t add up.

Ioniq insists the 5 is a crossover, but in the pictures it looked a lot more like a hatchback. Crossovers are supposed to be big, and chunky, but in the company’s press images it just didn’t look to be.
