when you turn the lights on there are kind of elements of the Aston automating dbx about it that’s no bad thing is it and look at this down here some of the coolest reversing lights I’ve ever seen on any car one thing i’m not so sure about those the sort of fakey venti stuff here but I do like this jingle-jangle jewelry effect that’s nice anyway let’s move down the side so aloe wheels start at 19 starts at 19’s going up to 21 so these are the mid-level 20s they look nice I love the swooping roofline of this car the wide haunches.

The side sills look awesome it really does and it’s got like a cab-forward design but it still looks very sporty and beefy at the front I think this is a great looking car especially in this paint scheme around the front it looks good here as well there are a few fake vents but really that’s very little to complain about it’s a good looking car now KIA’s trademark grille is known as tiger-nose but they’ve renamed it for this ev as the digital tiger face okay now this car starts at 41,000 pounds and it’s not bad considering.

The amount of spec you get with it and if you want to make sure you’re paying a fair price on your next car click on the pop-out banner up there or follow the link below the article to go to car wow alternative after this article you can simply google help me caraway and my team and I’ll help you choose the right card for you and get it for a fair price for one of our trusted dealers I love the interior design of this Kia ev6 it’s really really nice the textured effect on the dash and the different lines the blue lighting here the screens.

They actually have a coating on them which helps prevent glare so that you can see them even in direct sunlight the quality is pretty good as well it’s only when you go further down things get a bit scratchy but it’s to be expected really i love the look of this center console it does wobble a bit but these shiny bits on it really nice this armrest is comfy i like the fact that you got a gear selector as a rotator rather than a gear lever like you get in some of their evs which is just pointless steering wheel’s cool it’s a really nice design I’m impressed.

What they’ve done the seats are lovely as well this kind of velour effect apparently the seats are made out of recycled bottles it’s all very good actually tech that’s excellent as well so it’s got Kia’s latest infotainment system it’s responsive enough the graphics are fine it’s got apple car play android auto now if you want to use the climate control they are touch-sensitive buttons which aren’t quite as easy to use when you’re driving there are actual physical buttons that move but it’s not too difficult and you can do the temperature using a rotary knob and look.

This you can toggle between shortcuts for the infotainment system and you’ve got these buttons on the steering wheel as well and you use the ones over this side to toggle through all the information on the digital driver’s display which is nice and clear and very well laid out good comfort in here lots of adjustment in the steering wheel and in the seats as well which is good it feels very roomy as well because there’s a load of space just here where you can like store things down there you’ve got various charging ports USB and USB-C there’s more storage under here you’ve got cup holders here of different decks.

So that’s a shallower one that’s a slightly deeper one i should do them the other way around otherwise you’ll end up doing that thing where you lift off the top of your coffee well that stereo shut up i know i shouldn’t have pressed the blooming radio button that’s going to be let’s refer to the map again interrupted quite a lot here let’s continue so big glove box look at the size of that goes back such a long way and the door bins are huge too and they’re lined with felt so things don’t wrap around in there good if you’ve got a posh glass bottle like this oh one last thing.

I want to show you this is very very good for vain people like me these have to be the biggest vanity mirrors on any car i don’t look as good as i thought i did the kit EV6 feels nice and spacious here in the back seats so look how much knee room I’ve got it’s insane now even though this car is slightly shorter on the outside than KIA’s big Sorrento SUV because the wheels on the ev6 are further apart the front of the back wheels you’ve got more interior space and because it’s an electric car the batteries are underneath.

The floor which means you get a completely flat forward because unlike in an internal combustion engine car there’s not like space the exhaust or the driveshaft and the engine to the wheels at the back so look at all that space we’ve got the disadvantage of having batteries underneath the floor does mean that there’s not that much of a distance between the floor and the seat so you can feel a little bit like you’re sitting a bit too low but it’s not too bad it’s just a shame that you can’t really stretch your feet out that much under the chairs in front because they are quite low but still there’s so much room it doesn’t really matter one minor issue could be for really tall people the headroom.

It’s all right for me but people over six feet may find it a little bit tight in fact there’s a bit more headroom in a ford Mackie and if you click on the pop-out band up there you can watch my full index article review of that car there’s very little to fault about this look you’ve got some posh airplane-style pockets on the seatbacks cool little USB charging ports there another thing I want to show you is this look fold down this you have a cubby area there and if I do that becomes a cup holder look.

At that it’s like magic there is some through-loading but the space isn’t that great you might fit some skis through there just another thing I’m going to show you is this look yeah you can recline the back seats you can also put the rear windows all the way down I like that’s a good feature and if you need to carry three in the back at once because this seat is flat you need all that space in the footwells it is doable as for fitting a baby seat in the back this roof does slope inward so you do struggle to get a real bulky rear-facing seat in but the doors open wide which does help so there’s lots of room to maneuver once you’ve got it underneath.

The roof the only problem is that the Isofix anchor points are a little bit hard to get actually end up jumping away to get them located but once in place, there’s loads of room because there’s so much space between the front passenger seat and these seats that even with those bulky rear-facing seats you’re absolutely fine the person in the front passenger seat isn’t wanting for space at all now let’s talk about the boot so as standard you get an electrically operated tailgate and you have 520 liters of luggage space however the SCADA anyak has 585 liters of space  really to lift things over and you can fit the load cover underneath the false floor it’s not the easiest thing

To get outlook I’m struggling you can do it you just gotta know the right way to do it I’m gonna use that in a second because I want to show you something else there are quite a few of the cool features like we’ve got nets here we’ve got 12-volt sockets and I like this you can release the back seats and fold them down from those handles in the boot and this one this for the look you can slide things to the front because you have a continuous floor there with all the seats folded that’s quite good but I’m not done yet you see you have some more storage space here under this lovely clamshell bonnet look we have a front boot a fruit so it has a capacity of 52 liters unless you have the all-wheel-drive version.

which has another motor at the front

Therefore you have less fruit space it’s only 20 liters and that brings me on to five annoying things about this car if you have the top of the range car with the meridian sound system the subwoofer for it goes in the boot and it takes up 40 liters of space which means you don’t have so much underfloor storage which is a bit annoying because that’s where you’d ideally keep all the cables whereas here on this card they have to just be there the head restraints protrude quite a way forward so they push your head like that a little bit which really isn’t great for your posture you want to be more like that but you can’t for a practical family car the rear visibility is I mean just look I can’t see much can you out the back window and these rear pillars create massive blind spots.

which is really frustrating

When you’re pulling out junctions depending on your preferred seating position the steering wheel can sometimes block the top of the screen it’s a bit of a bugger when you’re creeping along in traffic this car makes a weird groaning sound from its brakes ever listen to this sort of like the noise the tripods make in the war of the worlds you see thankfully this car has plenty of cool features to help make up for all this here’s five just like its sister car the Hyundai ioniq five the ev6 has something called car 2 load.

which actually sounds a bit rubbish

But it’s actually very cool because it allows you to plug household appliances into this device here then you can run them off the car’s battery it’s really handy if you’re on a video shoot in a bit peckish and you want to eat something appropriate look the microwave works now we just got to wait five minutes same as i’ll just swipe out this car’s heads-up display features augmented reality for the satellite navigation so it’ll actually superimpose directions on the road ahead so you don’t take a wrong turn it’s a bit like the feature you get on a Mercedes s-class cool if you can’t be bothered.

To walk all the way to your car

You can make the ev6 come to you just press a button and you can summon it we’ll come forwards let’s make it go backward as well oh that’ll do oh i think i can make it that far you can also use this feature for getting out of and reversing into tight parking spaces need to recharge your own batteries while you’re charging the car well with the ev6 you can actually have a power nap while you’re putting power into the car itself look because the front seatbacks will recline super low all right then you have a nap the ev6 has an amazing high definition surround-view camera i mean look at that and you can zoom in and out on the bird’s eye view there’s lots of different views as well so you can have a look around the car from different.

The full 3d effect BMW style

bmw individual m850i night sky

Angles and of course the full 3d effect BMW style lovely now let’s talk about batteries and charging and all that kind of stuff so you can get a 77-kilowatt hour battery which can give you up to 360 miles of range you can get it with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and power ranges from 170 horsepower all the way up to 325 horsepower in the four-wheel-drive big battery version however there’ll be a high-performance version coming in 2022 with 585 horsepower so that should be pretty blooming quick in terms of charging the battery can charge up to 250 kilowatts so then let’s see.

What this KIA ev6

1000x 1

Like to drive now underneath the skin it shares many of its parts with a high-end ionic five because the high-end eye and here are sister companies however curious set this cop to be a little bit more sporty to drive because it’s sportier to look at isn’t it what that means is that the suspension is a little bit firmer so you feel the bumps a bit more so when you’re driving around town occasionally if you hit a pole just get a bit more of a jolt but it’s never uncomfortable at all I think it’s absolutely fine and driving around town it’s fairly easy to live with so the steering’s nice and light the forward visibility is pretty good because you’re sitting up quite high it’s a comfy car and of course.

You’ve got a regen effect for the motor

So when you lift off the accelerator the car will slow itself as it recoups energy and puts it back into the batteries and you can increase the amount of the regen effect by pulling on these, bb paddles here you can pretty much drive it on one pedal and not actually touch the brake pedal only for emergency stops and stuff like that overall this car is pretty easy to drive in town now when you get out on a twisty road you are thankful for that slightly firmer suspension setup because it means that this car doesn’t lean too much in the Benz of saying an ionic five now you might wonder.

The car safety systems warning me that I’m about to have an accident

what that noise is it’s it’s because i’m getting too close to the car in front because that’s actually our camera car and i’m getting the car safety systems warning me that i’m about to have an accident and if i was to do nothing the car would automatically break so on a twisty road this car does feel quite sporty which is a good thing it’s not quite as sharp to drive as a tesla model 3 and if you want to see my full in-depth video review of that car click on the pop-out banner up there there’s also a link in the description now when you get out on faster roads such as motorways and stuff you do appreciate the fact that this car is nice and comfy to traveling and it’s reasonably quiet obviously there’s no internal combustion engine worrying away in front of you the only thing you notice really is a bit of noise from the road from those big tires other than that though very very relaxing.

The electric motor so if you need to get past someone suddenly

you can use the standard-fit automated cruise control so you just turn that on and it’ll do that thing where using radar to keep your safe distance from the car in front and auto-steer to keep you in lane really takes a strain out of longer journeys another great thing that makes this car relaxing to drive is the instant punch from the electric motor so if you need to get past someone suddenly you just put your foot down and you just whizz by speaking of the performance i think it’s time to launch this thing this 325 horsepower dual-motor version of the ev6 is supposed to not 60 in 5.2 seconds but what will it really do well i’ve got my specialist timing gear up here gonna launch it let’s find out we’re gonna get we have a time wow it did it in 4.8 seconds that’s impressive though it does feel really quick

So then what’s my final verdict

KIA ev6 should you avoid it should you consider it should you shortlist it or should you just go right ahead and buy it well I reckon you should just go right ahead and buy the KIA ev6 it’s an absolutely brilliant EV plus you can use the car wow newsletter where we’ll keep you up to date of all the latest news and reviews from the car world.
