Kia EV6 GT-Line S Review
If you’re on the hunt for a used electric SUV that offers a fantastic drive, cutting-edge technology, and an attractive design, then look no further than the 2022 Kia EV6. As part of Kia’s eagerly anticipated entry into the electric vehicle market, the EV6’s impressive electric range and fast-charging capabilities make this family SUV a popular option for car buyers, so we hopped behind the wheel and headed to Exeter Quay to find out more!
What does it look like?
The Kia EV6 stands out, with its design striking a perfect balance between modern aesthetics and aerodynamic efficiency. Its sleek, coupe-like roofline seamlessly merges with its muscular body, resulting in an athletic profile that demands attention on the road.
The front fascia features Kia's signature ‘Digital Tiger Face’ grille which is exaggerated by the distinctive LED headlights that result in a commanding front end. Moving along the sides, the sculpted lines and bold wheel arches add to the SUV's sporty appeal, whilst the flush door handles contribute to the overall sleekness, improving aerodynamics and range.
At the back of the car, the sloping roofline and integrated spoiler blend effortlessly with the LED rear lights, leaving a lasting impression of sophistication. When combined, the exterior features of the EV6 GT-Line S form a unique and eye-catching design that sets it apart from conventional SUVs, reflecting its forward-thinking and sustainable character.
Interior and Practicality
The Kia EV6’s interior is a combination of modernity, comfort, and practicality. The cabin offers a premium feel thanks to the high-quality materials and attention to detail, whilst the spaciousness of the car is made obvious by the ample legroom and headroom for all occupants, ensuring comfortable long journeys.
The minimalist and uncluttered dashboard is highlighted by a large curved infotainment display that serves as the command centre for the Kia’s technology features, whilst the driver-oriented cockpit offers intuitive controls and a digital instrument cluster, enhancing the driving experience.
Moreover, the practicality of the EV6 GT-Line S shines through its versatile storage solutions and foldable rear seats, creating a generous cargo space to accommodate various needs. And to ensure easy car-to-driver integration, is a range of charging ports and connectivity options, inviting your smart phone to connect and enhance the Kia experience.
Performance and Handling
The Kia EV6 GT-Line S has a reputation for its impressive all-electric performance, with its potent electric motor achieving 0-60 mph in just 5.2 seconds. To compliment this is Kia’s advanced engineering, demonstrated by the smooth and quiet ride at all speeds.
If the smooth ride wasn’t enough, then the EV6’s handling will also impress. It’s well-balanced, with responsive steering and a low centre of gravity, resulting in a nimble and confident driving experience. Kia’s advanced engineering also lifts the SUV’s electric performance, with the regenerative braking system enhancing energy efficiency, improving the overall range to around 250 miles, making it a compelling choice for a family SUV.
What does GT-Line S mean?
In line with previous cars, Kia’s EV6 model offers a range of optional trim levels and packages, and GT-Line S is one of these options.
The GT-Line S trim offers a sportier and more performance-oriented version of the base model, including enhancements such as sportier styling cues, unique alloy wheels, and premium materials. Additionally, the GT-Line S trim offers performance-related upgrades, such as improved suspension tuning and sportier seats.
