You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items.

Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and you will find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Hyundai Ix35 has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
