The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

Is the Kia EV6 an SUV or just a regular hatchback? Well, it has a loftier driving position than the Tesla Model 3 saloon, but you don't exactly tower over other road users as you would in a Range Rover. The comfortable driver's seat hugs you securely around the middle, so you won’t find yourself sliding around the car through corners.

Entry-level Air models come with heated front seats that offer the driver powered adjustable lumbar support. You’ll have to upgrade to at least GT-Line trim if you want to adjust other parts of the seat electrically and treat your passenger to lumbar adjustment.

Sat nav and infotainment

All versions of the EV6 come with a curved 12.3in touchscreen positioned conveniently high up on the middle of the dashboard. It’s easy to see and has a relatively intuitive operating system, so it's not too distracting to use while you're driving.

There is sometimes a lengthy pause between pressing an icon and anything happening, though, along with the occasional system crash. The closely related system in the Hyundai Ioniq 5 suffers from the same issues, and Kia says it's developing a software patch to resolve the problem.

All trims have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, while GT-Line models and above get wireless phone-charging. The decent standard six-speaker stereo is replaced with a 14-speaker Meridian system if you go for range-topping GT-Line S trim.
