2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6: Reviews and more
Hyundai’s Ioniq was one of the first vehicles to be certified as a hybrid, electric, and plug-in hybrid. It has been updated for 2020 with more power, better connectivity, and improved fuel economy.
The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is a family hatchback. It’s a hybrid and can be used for commuting to work or picking up groceries. The Ioniq 6 is a hybrid with front-wheel drive, which means it’s easy to handle in rain or snow since you won’t need to worry about getting stuck in the mud. It also has good gas mileage so it will save you money at the pump!
The Ioniq 6 comes in three different models: the Ioniq 6 SE, SEL, and Premium trims (in order of base price). As we mentioned before, this car has some great features such as Apple CarPlay compatibility and Android Auto support so you can use your smartphone safely while driving without having any distractions while on the road!
Engine and Performance
The Ioniq 6 is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four engine rated at 210 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. That’s not quite as much power as the Volkswagen Jetta GLI (220 horsepower) or Ford Focus ST (252 hp), but it’s still plenty for most people—especially when paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that keeps pace with the competition.
Hyundai expects that its EPA fuel economy estimates will be 37 mpg combined (34 city/41 highway). The Ioniq Hybrid and Electric models are expected to get 52/56 mpg city/highway, respectively.
The interior of the Ioniq 6 is laid out in a similar fashion to that of its smaller sibling, the Ioniq 5. The dashboard features a center stack with an LCD screen and climate controls on either side. The center console houses two cup holders and a storage tray with slots for your cell phone, sunglasses, and other small items that you don’t want to lose track of.
The materials used throughout the cabin are high quality; soft-touch plastics are found on dashboards and door panels while leather covers the seats. There’s plenty of headroom for front-seat occupants (40 inches), but rear-seat passengers will find themselves slightly cramped due to limited legroom and cargo space behind them (17 cubic feet).
Getting into this car isn’t too hard: Climb into one of its heated front bucket seats before reaching over to pull shut any number of doors—there’s no B-pillar between the front or back passenger doors so getting in is easy! Once you’re settled inside, take advantage of available technology including Apple CarPlay™ support and multiple USB ports
Chassis and Suspension
The Ioniq 6 has a rigid body structure. This helps keep the car’s weight down and makes it more stable when driving. It also helps to improve fuel economy because less mass means less energy is required to move the vehicle forward. The front suspension is a double wishbone, and in the back there’s a multi-link suspension.
This type of setup allows for good cornering without sacrificing comfort on rough roads or during spirited driving sessions.
Safety and Technology
The 2021 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is available with a wide range of safety features and active technology. The standard equipment list includes four airbags, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, emergency braking assist with pedestrian detection, a lane keep assist system with lane departure warning and blind spot monitoring.
There are also optional packages for the Ioniq 6 which add adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and speed sign recognition capability as well as additional driver assistance features such as 360-degree cameras with dynamic guidelines and Apple CarPlay integration.
The vehicle received five stars overall from EuroNCAP in 2019 while the European New Car Assessment Programme (EuroNCAP) awarded it four out of five stars for adult occupant protection based on moderate overlap tests performed in 2017 when it was still known as the Hyundai Ioniq 5.
Pricing and Trim Levels
The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is available across the United States in three trim levels: base, Elite, and Premium. The base model starts at $25,995 before destination and handling fees, which is reasonably priced for such a well-equipped vehicle. The middle tier offers more features for only $1,000 more than its entry-level counterpart.
The top tier offers even more luxury features than the Elite trim does; however it also carries with it an MSRP of $31,995 before destination fees. That being said though, all of these models are remarkably affordable when compared to other hybrid vehicles in their class that have similar feature sets or even better ones (i.e., Tesla Model 3).
Each model offers an EPA estimated mileage rating between 59 mpg city/75 highway and 61 mpg city/74 highway depending on whether you opt for front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive respectively; however, there are also hybrid options available if you’re looking to save even more money on fuel costs while still achieving excellent performance!
We look at what this model has to offer.
The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is an incredibly efficient car, and it has a range of features that make it a comfortable and pleasant place to drive. Let’s take a closer look at what this model has to offer:
The engine and performance
This model uses an electric motor that generates 201 horsepower. It can go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. The battery gives you up to 250 miles of range on one charge, depending on your driving style and mode selection (more on this later).
The interior is spacious enough for four adults comfortably, with plenty more room if you need it for luggage or other items you may be transporting around town. With the rear seats folded down, there’s enough space for larger items like bikes or skis. There are dual glove boxes in the dash area as well as USB ports throughout the cabin so you can charge all your devices without having them plugged into one spot only; this is useful if someone wants their smartphone charged faster than another person’s tablet or laptop computer needs recharging right away after being plugged into their own dedicated PortaPow!® device under the seat cushion!
This is still a vehicle that needs to be driven for a more thorough review, but we can say that the Hyundai Ioniq 6 looks promising and should be a great addition to the company’s lineup. It has good power and lots of technology on board, so if you want something different from other models available today then it might be worth considering one of these vehicles for your next purchase!
