What Car? says...
The stats for the Kia EV6 GT – 577bhp, 162mph, 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds – sound like the numbers for something properly exotic. Italian or German maybe, with a rowdy V8 under the bonnet.
This isn't a sports car review, though: the EV6 GT is the hottest version of our 2022 Car of the Year, the Kia EV6. In other words, Kia has taken our favourite electric SUV and turned it into a performance car.
What about rivals? Well, the 'blink and you'll miss it' acceleration sets it against fast electric cars such as the Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT (which are closely related to each other and cost far more), plus Performance versions of the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y.
So, does the Kia EV6 GT beat its rivals as comprehensively as the regular version? We'll tell you everything you need to know over the next few pages of this review.
When you next buy a car of any make and model, remember we can help you find the lowest price if you search our free What Car? New Car Deals pages. They have lots of the cheapest new electric SUV deals.
