Test Hyundai Ioniq 6 Star 77 kWh and 325 CV with all-wheel drive

Test Hyundai Ioniq 6

Hyundai already has for sale its second electric model designed on its specific basis for large electric vehicles, the E-GMP platform. we talk about new Hyundai ioniq 6, an all-electric coupe-style saloon which is spectacular in every way. We have already tested it in its national presentation and here we are going to detail each of its sections, skills and points for improvement.

I say that it is spectacular in every way because it offers a groundbreaking design, it has a great aerodynamicsIt is available with three different engines, it comes with a huge technological load, it is well finished and its price is tempting. We can get an Ioniq 6 for just over 40.000 euros. Let's meet him!

Before moving on to the design, I think it's important to review its exterior dimensions. Measure 4,85 meters long and has a height of just 1,50. The battle is really wide, with 2,95 meters, while the width is 1,88. Therefore we have a very long, low car with little overhang.

Elegant, technological, sedan and coupe, this is the Hyundai Ioniq 6

La exterior aesthetics of the new Ioniq 6 turns many heads in its wake. Also, if we were to remove the logo of the South Korean firm, I doubt that many people would be able to say that it is a Hyundai. As mentioned above, it is a coupé-style saloon, with four doors and a very smooth silhouette to optimize aerodynamics to the maximum. In fact, its drag coefficient is only 0,21. Later we will see if this penalizes habitability.

Every contour, every trace of the bodywork is optimized to cut and channel air. In fact, it even has active grill which will open at certain times to cool the batteries. But at the same time, it has a very careful aesthetic, although in the tastes section there is nothing written -or so they say-.

Maybe the headlights those of us who are so used to designs designed for the European market may squeak a bit. By the way, it takes adaptive LED patrametric lights, although this test has been carried out during the day and we have not been able to verify its operation.

The bodywork offers eleven different shades and the wheels are 18 inches in the first two finishes, going to 20 inches in the top-of-the-range variant.

Test Hyundai Ioniq 6 side

It draws attention on all four sides, but focusing on the side, look in the softness of its upper line from the front to the rear bumper. In this rear area, the two well-marked spoilers, as well as the LED lighting so thin that it runs the entire width of the vehicle. I admit it, I like it a lot. I will talk about the digital rear-view mirrors that you see in the images later.

Without huge luxuries inside, but very well resolved in every way

Well, it is a saloon that is very close to the ground and therefore You have to bend down to get into the cabin.. Once inside, we have a very good driving position, although it has caught my attention that the seat is not as close to the ground as I expected. There will be those who like it more and those who like it less. In our unit, the top of the range, we have power heated and ventilated seats, plus heated steering wheel.

In here of course technology shines. We have a customizable instrument panel with 12,3 inch and, right next to it, the multimedia system of the same size. As the manufacturer is accustomed to in its latest models, it is a very complete system, with great touch and very good fluidity.

Interesting is also the style of ambient lighting, which is customizable with 64 unique colors and the option to combine between six two-tone themes.

To these two screens we can add two more, at the ends of the dashboard, practically in the doors. They will come only in the highest trim (Energy). in them the images of the digital mirrors are projected. I suppose they will take time to adapt, but they have never finished convincing me. Not in this car or any other. They do not seem intuitive to me, it is not easy to calculate the distances well and, of course, they will not be cheap if they have to be replaced. Of course, the definition quality is impeccable.

In addition, other solutions have been incorporated to improve space in the front seats. For example, to gain a few centimeters in width the power window controls have been relocated, removing them from the doors and putting them in the center console. Under said console we have a huge storage hole. In this sense, there is also a huge sliding glove box on the right side of the dashboard.

Regarding the qualitiesIt is not that Hyundai has resorted to top materials or upholstery that convey enormous luxury, but they are more than successful. The most remarkable thing is that the settings are perfect in every way and, in addition, aesthetically they are very pleasing.

The rear seats are fair in height, but very advantageous in length

Test Hyundai Ioniq 6 seats

As in the front seats, in the rear you have to be a little agile to get in and out without hitting the head on the upper edge of the body. Once inside, headroom isn't outstanding, but it's okay. A server, with his 1,76 height, still has some room to brush with hair on the ceiling.

The great dimension is longitudinal, with a huge distance for the knees to the front seatback. It is here where this enormous battle of practically 3 meters is most appreciated. Of course, as in almost all electric cars, the ground is a bit high and leaves us with our knees slightly raised. In any case, the comfort here behind is very high. We can even move the passenger seat to be even more comfortable

The trunk, with a correct volume

Test Hyundai Ioniq 6 trunk

And what about the trunk? The Hyundai Ioniq has a small compartment under the front hood. In the rear-wheel drive versions, the volume is 45 liters, which does not give much play, while in the all-wheel drive variant it is practically testimonial.

For its part, the main trunk, the rear, has a capacity of 401 liters. It is not huge either and it also has the handicap that it has a trunk lid and not a gate. I remember that it is a four-door car, not a five-door one. Although it is not a huge size, can be used well. It also has a false bottom where, for example, we can store the charging cables and a few more small bags.

Three motors and two batteries for the Ioniq 6

Test Hyundai Ioniq 6 front trunk

As we said at the beginning, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is offered with three mechanical variants different and two batteries. The smallest battery is 53 kWh and is exclusively associated with an electric motor of 151 CV on the rear axle, obtaining a range of 429 kilometers.

Then we have the large battery, which is 77,4 kWh. It can be associated to a version with 228 CV and rear propulsion, or to a variant with four-wheel drive (it has two engines) and a maximum power of 325 hp. The maximum autonomy is 614 km with this superior battery and the mechanics of 228 CV. In all cases, the maximum speed is 185 km/h and, of course, they receive the DGT Zero Emissions label.

Power Engine Torque Traction 0 to 100 km / h Consumption WLTP autonomy
Power Engine Torque Traction 0 to 100 km / h Consumption WLTP autonomy
151 CV 350 Nm RWD 8.8 seconds 13.9 kWh / 100 km 429 km
228 CV 350 Nm RWD 7.4 seconds 14.3 kWh / 100 km 614 km
325 CV 605 Nm AWD 5.1 seconds 16.9 kWh / 100 km 519 km

This platform supports 400 and 800V charging infrastructures. For example, with a powerful 350 kW charger you could charge the battery from 10 to 80% in just 18 minutes.

Also offers bidirectional charging, which is known as V2L. This means that with the car itself we can power any electrical device, such as a washing machine, a scooter and even recharge another electric vehicle.

Test Drive Hyundai Ioniq 6

In this first contact we have got on the Hyundai Ioniq 6 in Energy finish. It is the most equipped option, the most powerful and the only one that has Four-wheel drive -the other two are rear-wheel drive-. Logically, it is also the most expensive version.

Needless to say the response of the propulsion system is more than sufficient for the vast majority of mortals. And that we have a car that weighs more than 2,5 tons. Thanks to its low center of gravity, this weight is not perceived as such when we connect curves at a good pace, because the car turns flat without the need to resort to very rigid suspensions. They are firm, but not uncomfortable.

In fact, despite its aesthetic spectacularity It is a comfortable car, both for the driver and for the passengers. It correctly absorbs the vast majority of potholes, but he suspects that units with 18-inch wheels will filter even better instead of 20. Of course, its great insulation stands out. The interior silence is very pleasant, leaving only the aerodynamic noise slightly noticeable at high speed.

What we must take into account is that it is not the ideal car for wandering around. It is a short car, which we can easily scrape with a curb or if we go over a bump a bit quickly, and it is also quite long. It is not an ideal vehicle for narrow and complicated parking lots precisely. The digital mirrors do not help to park either, having to rely mainly on the overhead view of the 360-degree camera system.

In this case, with this specific version, we have an approved autonomy of 519 kilometers. As we are in a presentation, we have not been able to measure consumption, although by taking a reference, The consumption marked by the trip computer has been 17 kWh. Almost traced to the approved!

In any case, and looking at the data, I think that the most interesting version is the one with the large battery and the 228 hp motor, since the maximum autonomy is currently a plus when it comes to electric cars. Furthermore, as it is associated with “Star” finish, we will take 18-inch wheels (more comfortable and cheaper wheels when it comes to replacing them) and conventional mirrors. In my case, I prefer the mirrors of a lifetime.
