Coming from the same stable and built on the same foundation, the difference between the Kia EV6 and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 comes down to looks, performance and price. Together, the pair bust open the market for EVs, charging into the mid-range sector with features that stand up well to marquee names. If you’ve been on the fence about going electric, one of these purpose-built EVs could prompt you to action.
Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 and Kia’s EV6 share a significant amount of DNA under the hood, including the new electric-global modular platform (E-GMP), which pushes the wheels to the edge of the skateboard-style base, maximising passenger space and giving designers a free hand. So, what distinguishes the Korean crossover cousins from each other? As always, the devil is in the details.
