Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
It can be hard to judge from photos, but the Kia EV6 is a really big car, so it’s hardly surprising that there’s lots of space in the front.
You’d have to be incredibly tall to have any problem with leg room, and the wide interior adds to the sense of spaciousness. There's enough head room for six-footers, too, although the sunroof fitted to GT-Line S models does lower the height of the ceiling slightly, so is best avoided if you're tall.
A hatch in the middle rear seatback allows you to carry long, thin items (skis, for example) and still have two rear passengers on board.
Another neat feature on GT-Line and GT-Line S models is a one-button recline function for the front seats, allowing you to have a quick snooze while you wait for your EV6 to charge.
Considering the size of the EV6, its 490-litre boot isn’t all that remarkable. Even so, we managed to fit seven carry-on suitcases below the parcel shelf – the same number as we got into the Audi Q4 e-tron and Jaguar I-Pace.
Access is good because of the large hatchback opening, and the load bay is a useful square shape, with some extra space under the floor for the charging cables. You’ll be able to fit slightly more luggage in the Tesla Model Y and Volkswagen ID.4,
