Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

This is the all-new Kia EV6!

It’s Kia’s first purpose-built electric car, and Mat’s on hand to see if it has what it takes to go toe-to-toe with some of the class-leading German crossover EVs!

For starters, there’s no denying that the EV6 looks great. Whatever angle you look at it from the outside, the Kia has a sporty edge that helps it stand out. What’s more, when you take a step inside, it’s packed full of all-new tech, including Kia’s latest infotainment system! That’s not all though, you can even use the EV6’s vehicle-to-load feature to use the car as a portable power supply!

In terms of performance, there’s a variety of different options available, with the class leader delivering 325hp! All models come packing a 77kWh battery, and it has a claimed range of 316 miles.

So with a starting price of £41,000, is the EV6 THE must-have electric car of 2021? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

      Help me carwow! Can you do a real world range test of the ioniq5 vs the ev6? I’m looking at both and I know the ev6 is supposed to get better range from the 58kw battery but is this true? It’s a real toss up because the styling is better on the ioniq5 but the handling is better on the ev6! Although I’m not interested in it I suppose you could include the mustang Mach-E for a bit more variety?

    To be fair you missed out on two big points in this review. The electricity can be shared to your house and the battery is good for 24h of watching tv. And the big point being that this car is the only car thats matching the Taycan charging speed.

    This will be my number one electric car when I do make the jump. I am on my second Kia now and you can't beat the 7 year transferable warrantY peace of mind and they are well built inside and out. I find it annoying when a reviewer always has to point out the scratchy plastic especially if out of sight. I sat in my mates Merc e class and while the plastics may not have been so scratchy they were obviously plastic to me and looked it despite all the chrome colours etc.

    My personal opinion is while it looks futuristicish it will not age well and in a few years down the road it will not be something interesting to look at. Ioniq wins on this department with more subtle design features

    Looking straight at the back, whenever the car is driving away from you, it looks a little unattractive, and the price is way too much, and since it's electric, it's plagued with a low range, but everything else is pretty good. I like this car.

    Difference between Euro cars and Korean cars.... Euro cars are spot on with everything to 99%.. Korean cars always have "5 silly things about this car" as you mentioned, strange noise when car moves slow, head rests to far forward, no reverse view...... I put Korean cars as always at about 80% good with always 20% cheapo crap things that make you wish you could have a BMW or Audi instead... hmmm not happy they cant fix up these minor things...Money wise, sure EV6, but if I personally had a choice, I would choose the BMW or Audi equivalent car.

    for a really thorough review, check out Bjorn Nyland. There, you'll find that the Kia/Hyundai are not very aerodynamic, and therefore not so efficient at motorway speeds. VW ID and especially Tesla are a lot better in this respect, allowing larger stretches between charging stops if you're going on a long-distance trip. 0:1 for Kia. And obviously, Tesla's Supercharger network is tops, so 0:2. Not to mention acceleration, automated driving... The EV6 is great, I'd gladly buy it, but the best in the world, no way José.

    Nice shorts ...chicken legged Mat. nice to see skinny jean shorts rolled up for reasons unknown. However the more videos i see of the badass Kia EV6, the more I am drawn to the Hyundai Ioniq 5's design. Th HI5 has more classic enduring exterior elements, a real hatchback look, and a much much cleaner and fresh interior with great fabrics, lighter displays , and all with the same battery and performance, esp. when the N comes out to play....with s much power one need if the buyer is some Hellcat freak.

    While the car does look great and has a lot of cool features, I’ve used the touchscreen, which is almost impossible to accurately press (for example) the home button while driving as it is quite a stretch for me as a tall person with the seat further back (home button is on the far left corner of the screen). It’s a niggle but would really put me off buying as it would be a daily niggle.

    The western world should just accept the fact that asia is now doing wonders in the car industry too... perhaps, one of the reason os because their companies hire and pirate people from the western companies and allow them to do their thing with less intrusion from the management, so their imagination is the only limit. Hence, these cars... I understand many are into german brands... for the brand... but bro, you can't deny genesis (a korean brand too) is doing well in the luxury department... ... along with other koreans, japanese brands like lexus, and now so many emerging chinese cars (although many still has well founded skepticism for the latter owing to its novelty). Even the not so luxurious brands of these asian cars are giving purchasers a bang for their bucks woth these array of features comparable to what the western luxury car makers provide with a much lower price... plus, match that with really low maintenace cost too, and a resell value thats way way way better than what you get to enjoy selling any of those western luxury car brand... asian cars is definetly the way to go.

"no wireless charging" Incorrect. "Rubbish froot" What is it with people needing a froot? This is the most overrated thing I've ever heard of. "No possibility of over the air updates" Who cares? "no possibility of self driving" Who cares? "Overall an very standard car made electric, not designed for the future." This has "I'm a Tesla fan" written all over it. LOL!

    Lovely looking family dodgem that even borders on practicality in one or two areas, but then for £41000.00 so it bl**dy well should.. At this price Kia are obviously not aiming their EV6 at the average UK working-class family.. For me, the REAL disadvantage of having thousands of AA batteries under the floor is... having thousands of AA batteries under the floor.. A 'simply-sooper' car for those virtue-signalling trips to the mall in California and even southern Europe but I don't know how those batteries will perform in the prolonged cold spells of northern Europe and the UK though, the range of the Tesla model 3 for instance is down to 40% at best as soon as the thermometer dips below zero centigrade..
