While the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 are similar cousins that share the same electric platform, there are still important differences between the two. We believe the Hyundai Ioniq 5 shines in several ways in North Hampton. Read on to learn how they compare. Please remember that you can custom order your new Hyundai Ioniq 5.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is Quicker Than the Kia EV6

While the difference is very tight, it is undeniable that the Hyundai Ioniq 5 still comes out on top near Epping. The Ioniq 5 can reach 60 MPH within 4.4 seconds, whereas the Kia EV6 reaches 60 MPH within 4.5-seconds. Again, that difference is tight, but every moment counts.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Offers a Softer Ride Quality

A big difference between the two models is ride quality. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 offers a smoother and softer ride, providing you with an easier time relaxing while on your way to your destination. The Kia EV6 is a bit sportier, though it offers a stiffer ride less suited to daily driving.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Steers Better Than the Kia EV6

Portsmouth drivers can expect to find more compelling steering in the Ioniq 5. Steering is lighter, more playful, and more organic, resulting in better maneuverability and an overall fun ride. The Kia EV6, conversely, does not feature that same kind of steering aptitude.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Can Charge Faster Than the Kia EV6

Depending on the charger used near Newburyport, MA, the Hyundai charges up to 100% quicker than the Kia EV6. Charging is an important part of electric vehicles, so if one vehicle charges faster than the other, that's a good sign.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Offers a More Modern Design

When it comes to a modern design, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 takes the cake. There is plenty of white and gray colors, with blue-black buttons and silver accents. In a sense, it is styled more futuristic than the Kia EV6, which is more sporty in appearance and ethos.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Offers More Intuitive Infotainment System Features

Overall, this Hyundai's infotainment system features generally intuitive features that are easy to use on the go. This is important as the Kia EV6 makes some questionable choices. One such choice is to have the HVAC and infotainment controls share controls. This means, for instance, that a dial in the EV6 changes both the volume and temperature, which can quickly get frustrating.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Offers a More Open, Airy Cabin

Besides including a more modern design, the Hyundai offers more space to stretch out. The seats are more upright and more supportive. The cabin itself is open, airy, and welcoming. The Kia EV6 also has a spacious cabin, but it cannot match that same level of serene atmosphere.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Has More Cargo Space Than the Kia EV6

If you need more cargo space, you will want to choose the Hyundai Ioniq 5. The Ioniq 5 offers a total of 59.3 cubic feet, while the EV6 comes in at a total of 50.2 cubic feet.

Which Model Works for You?

However, there are still key differences between them that may sway you one way or another.
