Interior, dashboard & comfort rating

4.5 out of 5

The EV6's interior and on-board technology match the high standards we've become accustomed to from Kia of late: quality is top-notch and ease of use has been baked into every element, which is more than can be said for some of its rivals.

Kia EV6 dashboard

A pair of curved 12.3-inch display screens dominate the EV6's dashboard: one with a clear and crisp digital instrument panel and the other with a slick and easy-to-use widescreen infotainment system. There's none of the freezing and hesitation that can plague some other brand's systems here, and you also get a useful ledge on which to rest your hand while operating it.

Lower down, a touch-sensitive panel can be used to control both the heating and ventilation system and the audio. Quality is excellent, too, with only a few hard or scratchy surfaces to be found if you really go looking. The vast majority of the chrome, fabric and lacquer used feels entirely in keeping with the model's premium price.

Equipment, options & accessories

There are three Kia EV6 trim levels: entry-level Air is the 'price leader' and only available with the rear-drive, single-motor drivetrain, but it doesn't feel excessively Spartan, with the dual curves screens, reversing camera, rain-sensing wipers and heated front seats all standard.

Next up are GT-Line and GT-Line S, both of which are available with either the single-motor, rear-drive or dual-motor, all-wheel-drive setup. GT-Line gets 19-inch alloy wheels, dual LED headlights, rear privacy glass, suede upholstery, a wireless phone charger and front parking sensors.

GT-Line S boasts a premium Meridian audio system, an augmented reality head-up display, a 360-degree camera, ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights and 20-inch alloys.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

There's a stylish curved infotainment display giving you access to most of the car's functions, comprising twin 12.3-inch screens with sharp graphics and responsive, logically designed menus.
