Everything You Need to Know on the 2023 Kia EV6 GT
In this video review, we’ll take a closer look at the all-new Kia EV6 GT, an all-electric compact crossover that competes with several other vehicles in the market, such as the Hyundai Ioniq5, VW ID.4, Mustang Mach-E, Nissan Ariya, Toyota BZ4X, and Mazda MX-30. While the field is already crowded with great vehicles, we’ll see how the EV6 GT sets itself apart from the competition.
The EV6 GT boasts a striking exterior design, with unique front and rear fasciae, neon accents, and 21-inch wheels that make it stand out. Gloss black front grille, lower body cladding, wheel arch molding, and heated, power-folding side view mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators complete the sleek look. The GT trim also features high-performance brakes with quad-piston front calipers and automatically extending, flush door handles.
The EV6 GT’s engine is where it truly shines. With a 77.4 kWh battery, it can go up to 206 miles of EPA-estimated range, and the world-first 800V multi-charging architecture enables ultra-fast DC charging to recharge 10 to 80 percent state-of-charge in under 18 minutes. The dual-motor e-AWD system produces an impressive 576 horsepower and 545 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful Kia production vehicle ever. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 161 mph.
The interior is just as impressive, with black suede seats and neon accents, unique racing-inspired sport bucket seats, and neon green dash accents that make the cabin feel driver-focused and sporty. The EV6 GT comes with advanced tech features such as a 12.3-inch dual panoramic display with navigation, Kia Connect, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, an augmented-reality head-up display, wireless phone charger, surround view monitor, blind-spot view monitor, and remote smart parking assist.
With a starting MSRP of $61,600 for the GT Base and $62,865 for our tested model, the EV6 GT is priced competitively compared to its rivals. However, the reviewer notes that personally, they prefer the RWD version with 310 miles of range, which starts at $48,700. While the EV6 GT may not be the reviewer’s favorite design-wise, it certainly packs a punch in terms of performance, range, and features.
