2023 Kia EV6 GT: Supercar performance at a budget price


“The handling is a dream. Country roads are so much fun and cornering like an exotic car.

One of the EV6’s major drawbacks was during rainstorms. When I turned left at the red light as usual and left, the EV6 hurriedly loosened on the slippery road and almost spun.

Press and hold the drive mode button to switch to snow mode even in rainy weather. Dialing back the torque prevents the wheels from spinning. After that the wet road problem was gone. If you can help it, don’t buy this (or really a car) without a wet weather test.

The interior of the 2023 Kia EV6 is spartan but sleek, with mostly simple controls. The heater infotainment switch can take some getting used to.

I’ve put over 300 miles on the EV6 and have found it to be a comfortable companion. A seat in GT-Line suede provides excellent support and softness. Vegan leather is standard.

One complaint is the gauge. The most important information is in the top corners and can be blocked by the handle.

I thought there was plenty of room in the back seat. The seats are fairly high, with plenty of legroom and no consoles to get in the way of passenger number three. But the Sturgis Kid 4.0 grimaced when asked about legroom after traveling 150 miles round trip for her Grandma 1.0’s 88th birthday. She said she “has no place to put her feet under the seat.”

Luggage space is 24.4 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 50.2 cubic feet with the seats folded. This one is on the smaller side, even smaller than the Kia Soul. “
