....and no frunk?
Yes. No Frunk. Just like the ID4. More interior space.
There's plenty of storage in the trunk. And under the load floor. And under the other load floor.
My company’s MS has a Frunk. I've never, ever used it. Why would I want to leave stuff in a tiny, harder to access other compartment, rather than the trunk?

... or for that matter, inside of the car where it is easily accessible? The whole frunk idea is just bizarre to me, and brings me back to times when cars had rear mounted engines. I do not want to go back there. Please

Well, R8. 😉 But seriously, a frunk is a nice feature if the design of the car makes sense to have one. It’s not mandatory, but how is it bad? I like having one as a place to put things that I don’t want cluttering up my trunk, and that I might want to get to easily. Like, say, a charging cable. Thinking of the frunk as a bad thing without regard to functionality strikes me as bizarre.

You mean, like most people who complain about cars not having them?

It isn't. I don't think a frunk is very useful. So I don't count that against ones that have it. It isn't like I won't buy a car with a frunk, but I won't use it.

I have found that there is usually ample space below the load floor for a charging cable.

and that I might want to get to easily
This is actually why I don't like the frunk. I don't find it especially easy to get to. On certain cars, it isn't watertight. On Model S, the hood can be warped with repeated use.

Again, if you want to use a frunk, go for it. Several of us are just reacting to the negative reviews of the ID4 (and Q4) that are complaining about the lack of a frunk.

Precisely. I do not see why the car is suddenly bad because it does not have a frunk. Seriously. Everything else can be very good, but the lack of frunk does it. Come on, this is not even a first world problem to have.

Unless your trunk is full of luggage. Then a frunk is quite useful. The space beneath the load floor is great, I agree, unless it’s a PITA to get to it.

Potentially. I use the charging cable once or twice a year. So I've never needed it with a full trunk. Getting your tire kit out from under the load floor sucks with stuff in the trunk, too. But it doesn't happen very often.

Seems to me the absence of a frunk is a noteworthy review item. How negative that is will be up to each individual consumer. But it’s one thing to rebut the negativity, while quite another (bizarre) thing to claim the absence as a benefit. That’s pure spin. And yes, one can have one’s opinion all day long, but it’s difficult to see opposition to a frunk as rational. Not desiring a frunk may be fine for any one user, but that’s a far cry from saying it’s a bad thing or that no one should even want one. Choice is a good thing.

Personally, it’s hardly enough to make me want my deposit back. I’m still first in line with my dealer for when they come in. But by that time, I may be driving to the lot in either of a GT or . . . an Ioniq 5. I have a reservation on one of those as well. Yes, it’s a Hyundai, but it’s got some nice thinking in it and it’s not 400V. To me, that’s the real problem with the Q4. There’s a lot to like about the Q4 (frunk or not 😉), and a fair bit by which to be disappointed. One of the Volkswagen Group’s strengths—shared technologies—is also one of its weaknesses. With cars like the Ioniq 5 coming out with 800V (this fall, not next year), the Q4 seems a little hamstrung to me. There are so many ways in which the Q4 is superior to a car like the Hyundai, and I much prefer its looks. And it’s an Audi. But for a utility car, it may be both more and less than I want. Will have to see it in person.

Not sure if I like or hate the Ioniq’s looks. But I do like some of its features. And unlike the Q4, it has the appearance of a forward-looking car. And oh yeah, it has a frunk. 😉

With all the Kona problems and how Hyundai handled that in US, I will not be touching their cars in a while. Frunk or no frunk, I do not like the interior design myself, and since that is the part I spend most time looking at, it is a turn down. It can be 800V or not, it does not matter if the interior sets me off.

I tend to agree. I have to like the interior I live in—one reason I am jazzed for the GT—and I definitely do not love the Ioniq 5 interior. Although I don’t find it as off-putting as Tesla.

With regard to the Kona, do you mean the EV? Agreed (though the Ioniq is quite a step or two forward from that). We’ve actually had great experience with ICE Hyundai cars over the years. Ages ago, when I had very little money, one of their early Santa Fe models was a good car for a young family. Handed that down to a kid. And each daughter has gotten a used Accent or Elantra on their way into college. Just bought a 22 Kona (ICE) for the last daughter starting sophomore year.

I have a colleague at work with Kona EV, and his battery capacity was capped via overnight OTA with no warning. Then they decreased capacity even more. Now he cannot park in his own garage due to fire warning notice (if he does, and car goes in flames, insurance will not cover it). Resale value plummeted, range is decreased dramatically, and no ETA for battery replacement in sight. They also stopped sales in South Korea for this model for a reason.
I understand the new platform and all, but I have a hard time trusting the company who burned so many people already on the process and handling of the issues.

How about the Frunk on the Ford F150 Lightning EV? The entire front, grille and all, lift up to reveal a space where you can put 5 bags of groceries. Uncovered hauling in the back; covered hauling in the front. Sounds like a pretty good idea.

LOL, if I could power lift the front as the rear can be done today, I could dig the whole frunk idea. Having to release the hatch and mess with it, especially when the car is dirty, is a big nono for me.
