Kia EV6 boot space, seating & practicality

Luggage space is decent, but you may need to double-check if the EV6's rear seats are big enough for your needs

As you may have guessed from its exterior proportions, the EV6 is not a gargantuan family holdall in the mould of its hybrid-engined stablemate the Kia Sorento. But neither is it a uselessly pokey little sports coupe. Front-seat and boot space are both pretty generous, with only a slightly cramped experience for adults sat in the back giving cause for concern.

Kia EV6 interior space, storage & comfort

Up front, the EV6 is nicely spacious in the way we've come to expect from electric cars sitting on bespoke platforms, with no holdover transmission tunnels impinging on foot space. It's not quite so impressive in this respect in the back. The lack of a transmission tunnel does mean three adults can sit across the rear bench without their feet or knees feeling crushed, but that sleek roofline does mean headroom can be at a premium for taller occupants – especially in comparison to the EV6's boxier sister model the Hyundai Ioniq 5.

Boot space

There's a reasonable amount of room for luggage – 490 litres, to be exact – along with a variable height boot floor to allow you either maximise space or give yourself a flat load lip for sliding items in. There's also a floor net with securing hooks, but we would like to see more proper hooks for shopping bags and the like.

In the rear-wheel-drive EV6, there's an extra 52-litre boot up front, which is in ideal place to stash the charging cables out of the way, but note if you go for the four-wheel-drive version, the presence of its extra electric motor cuts that space to just 20 litres.

Regardless of whether you choose a rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive EV6, all standard cars offer a 1,600kg towing capacity.
