And this driving review in English from a Koren newspaper reporter.
As mentioned in the UK thread, I found it interesting that he said the Ioniq 5 (barely) handles better than the EV6 (and I believe both cars he tested were the LR AWD with 20" rims). It's possible it's because the Ioniq 5 is a smidge lighter (with the 72kWh battery vs. 77.4kWh on the EV6 on non-NA models)Asian Petrolhead compares EV6 to IONIC5:
The problem with this review of the GT line (which I believe it's the one I viewed at my local dealer) is that it has extras that are not standard to the GT Line - according to the Kia website -. For example, the GT Line doesn't have a powered tailgate. It doesn't have the overtaking mirror view flash up on the screen. It doesn't have automatic door handles. It doesn't have 360 degree all round vision. It doesn't have meridan speakers. It doesn't have 20" wheels. I'm not sure about the reclining rear seats. All these ARE on the GT Line S.......so is this an 'S' ?Kia proving that forward-thinking doesn’t need to be entirely wacky. An extremely attractive package that makes a lot of more premium manufacturers look at least two steps behindwww.topgear.com
There's also a number of video reviews posted on the UK thread on page 17 and 18.
Hi Folks, I visited the Fully Charged Outside show today and saw the EV6 for the first time. I was very impressed. Any concerns over the boot size was dismissed. Loved the interior and overall look of the GT line. I really need a test drive asap! But barring it driving like a cow, it is going to...www.kiaevforums.com
That's what I thought. One problem - for me - is that if you go on the Kia website to 'build your car' the GT Line wheels are a different style to the ones on the preview car....which I want. I just hope you have a choice or can pay to have that choice.Apparently it's a bit of a mash up between the GT Line & The GT Line S.
That's according to one of the Kia Rep's who is doing the rounds with the car to all the dealers.
Yeah, and if an interesting new model comes out in a year or two, it still might be 8-12 month wait after order has been placed.“What stopped me from buying the Kia EV6” was that something better might come out in the next year or two.
Not an argument that I found particularly convincing!
