Hyundai Ioniq 6: 5 Reasons We Love It and 5 Reasons We’re Not Fans

Hyundai Ioniq 6 Review

Korean car brands excel in electric vehicles, and Hyundai is no different. The stylish Ioniq 5, launched in 2021, showcased Hyundai’s new design language and electric E-GMP architecture.

Adding to its electric lineup, Hyundai introduced the sleek Ioniq 6, known as an ‘electrified streamliner.’ Let’s explore what makes the Hyundai Ioniq 6 impressive and highlight some of its drawbacks.

  1. Love: Striking Design The Hyundai Ioniq 6 boasts a brilliant and stylish appearance, reminiscent of 1920s and 1930s cars designed for optimal aerodynamics. With a drag coefficient of Cd 0.21, its streamlined shape increases range.
  2. Loathe: Firm Suspension The suspension is firmer compared to rivals, causing discomfort on uneven roads. The larger 20-inch wheels contribute to a bumpy ride, and the Ioniq 5 handles bumps better.
  3. Love: Premium Interior The interior exudes a premium feel, featuring metal components and textured plastics. Upholstery quality surpasses rivals, elevating the overall refinement.
  4. Loathe: Limited Rear Space The sloping roofline compromises rear space, making taller passengers uncomfortable. Despite the slouched seating position, headroom is limited for tall individuals.
  5. Love: Superfast Charging The Ioniq 6’s superfast 350kW charging enables 10-80% charging in just 18 minutes, outpacing the Tesla Model 3’s 25 minutes.
  6. Loathe: Efficiency Compared to Tesla While the Ioniq 6 offers a range of 382 miles, the Tesla Model 3 is more efficient, achieving around 4.0m/kWh compared to Ioniq’s 3.0m/kWh.
  7. Love: User-Friendly Technology Packed with usable technology, the Ioniq 6 features Vehicle to Load (V2L) functionality, powering devices from the car’s battery. LED lights on the steering wheel indicate functions, and digital mirrors enhance the experience.
  8. Loathe: Limited Boot Opening The sloping roofline results in a saloon-like boot opening, making loading less convenient than a hatchback.
  9. Love: Impressive Range The Ioniq 6’s claimed range is 338 miles, but it can reach 382 miles in specific configurations. A 77.4kWh battery powers the EV, ensuring around 300 miles of real-world driving range.
  10. Loathe: Lack of Battery Options The Ioniq 6 offers no entry-level option with a smaller battery and range. The starting price of £47,040 for the model with a 77.4kWh battery is higher than the entry-level Tesla Model 3, which offers a shorter range at £42,990.
