After many years of pretending they’ve never heard of each other south korean brands hyundai and kia have more recently begun to acknowledge their shared manufacturing parentage possibly because they’ve both overcome their modest roots and are building excellent vehicles and enjoying success in the u.s market the latest examples are the all-new 2022 hyundai ioniq 5

And 2022 kia ev6 electric vehicles which share a platform called the electric global modular platform or egmp they share a lot both under the skin and in terms of functionality but impressions of the differences seem to be superficial so we’re laying out the true differences after our evaluations of both they’re probably not what you expect hyundai ioniq 5 versus

Kia ev6 what’s really the difference between the two one battery choice or two despite what you might see on the epa site the ionic 5 launches in the us with just one battery the 77.4 kilowatt hour pack that provides an epa estimated 303 miles of range with rear wheel drive or 256 miles with all-wheel drive the ev6 ostensibly includes a base trim level the light

Equipped with a 58 kwh battery pack and rear drive only for an epa estimated 232 miles of range the higher trims wind and gt line come with the larger pack and are rated at 310 and 274 miles of range for rwd and aud respectively the kia’s longer range seems to come from higher overall efficiency as reflected in its mpg equivalent ratings starting price in today’s

Market msrp means only so much as the inventory shortage has raised market pricing and limited choices but as mentioned above the ev6 theoretically includes a rear drive light trim level with a smaller battery pack that would represent a full two thousand seven hundred eighty dollars lower entry price than the ioniq five but none of this trim appear in

Inventory as of march 2022 sporty versus not sporty looking the hyundai is utilitarian and the kia is sporty right maybe if all you do is look at them we had the same impression as well until we actually drove both the eb6 has a wheelbase of 114.2 inches which is about 4 inches shorter than the ionic 5 seconds and is 2.2 inches lower at the roofline but it’s

Actually almost 2 inches longer from bumper to bumper we thought the ionic 5 and ev6 gt line both equipped with 20 inches wheels drove quite similarly and not very sportily unless your sole criterion for sport is quick acceleration which both delivered both ride comfortably overall and that’s a good thing in this class comfy versus awkward by the supplied numbers

The ev6 has 0.7 inches more front leg room than the ioniq 5 but its front headroom 39 inches is 0.8 inches less than the ionic 5 seconds our taller editors complained about everything from banging their heads upon entry to brushing the grab handle the whole time they drove note that the standard moon roof on the gt line robs 2.2 inches from the front occupants so

Doing without that feature would essentially achieve headroom parity with the ionic 5 but presumably wouldn’t affect the incidence of braining oneself upon ingress specifications don’t always do a great job of representing three-dimensional space as is the case for the ev6 in which the seats are very close to the floor to compensate for the lower roof line our

Six feet tall drivers found themselves trapped between two unpleasant options feeling like they were sitting on the floor where the steering wheel blocked the instrument panel or raising the seat and encountering the limited headroom by the numbers the back seat has only 0.4 inches less legroom than the ioniq but the seat is low which raises passengers knees child

Safety seat latch anchors if you intend to install car seats for your kids both of these models are very good but where the ev6 earned straight a’s in our car seat check the ioniq 5 got a pair of b grades because its lower latch anchors were harder to access turning circle bad or really bad the difference in turning diameter between these two models isn’t huge 1.1

Feet but given how wide the ionic 5 seconds is 39.3 feet you might be desperate enough to choose the eb6 instead for that much relief for comparison the volkswagen id four seconds turning circle is as tight as 31.5 feet with rwd or 36.4 feet with odd center console technically both models have center consoles but the ionic five seconds is relatively low and far

Back with a tilt-up center armrest in the limited trim level it slides back as well this design combines with the flat floor to provide an especially open roomy space between the seats for purses backpacks exeter the ev6 also leaves some of this lower space open for stowage but retains a console above it that extends toward the dashboard bearing the gear selector

Cup holders the cars on off button and other important high level controls like the available 360 degree camera system you need to pick what’s most important to you but after finding the ionic five seconds heated seat and steering wheel controls buried in a touch screen menu rather than accessible via top level buttons we greatly appreciated the latter on the front

View over the driver’s left shoulder is particularly bad obscured by a broad b pillar close to your face though its a pillars can block one’s front corner views typical of aerodynamic vehicles the ionic five-second sight lines are better overall fortunately both models offer a bevy of tech remedies to help with these issues though the more advanced ones are on

To 1000 kwh which has a current dollar value of 430 dollars the hyundai might have the advantage here shoppers who appreciate the following might lean toward the hyundai ioniq 5 more open space in front better headroom more comfortable legroom better rearward visibility more cargo space the potential for more free public charging panoramic glass roof no mileage
