KIA EV6

KIA EV6

SOUTH KOREA'S JOINT WORLD CHAMP

Kia's EV6 is the sister car to Hyundai’s Ioniq 5. Both EVs boast great exterior designs and superb build quality. They're the most credible mainstream family hatchbacks ever built by the Hyundai-Kia-Genesis empire. EV6 and Ioniq 5 were named Best Cars of the Year Joint World Champs after a dead heat in the official judging process. The Kia costs £44,195-£56,095 (UK). Theoretical maximum range is 300-328 miles. Yet despite its heftier price it doesn’t look as distinctive unique or classy as the Ioniq 5 which also has a superior interior. Kia's constant price hikes are worrying.

HYUNDAI: JOINT WORLD CHAMP

Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 was one of the most popular exhibits on the Best Cars of the Year stand at The British Motor Show in 2021. The radically different exterior and class-leading cabin give the pure-electric family hatchback a premium look and feel. It could, should and deserves to be a tad more exciting to drive. That said, it’s the finest sub-£40k EV around. Mid-2021 prices (UK): £39,400-£52,900. Claimed EV range: 238-315 miles. Our hard-to-impress judges had no hesitation in declaring it Joint World Champion 21/22. Ioniq 5 KO’d the international opposition.
