Hyundai IONIQ6 Review – Never spec this feature on your EV ! | 4K

Dealing with the Ioniq6 for a week was an intriguing experience. There was much to like about the and truck but it was spec 'd with one choice that I actually didn't proceed with. ! It's not the first time I have actually driven a car with digital door mirrors but I actually simply can't proceed with them.

Apart from that the Ioniq6 is an excellent plan. It has striking looks and all the tech you could want. It has a slippery profile and apparently offers great effectiveness. The only way to put that to the test is to take it on a road trip!

    Interesting review, I agree with you re wing mirrors…. Trying to solve a problem that doesn’t exist… Great review, as always.. Cheers

    It’s not just about head room in the rear though, the thigh to seat gap greatly influences comfort and the gap appeared to be quite significant in this car

      Nobody has complained about the comfort in the back seat of mine, it has plenty of room.

      I don’t agree about the cameras.
      They came with the car, but I got used to them quickly.
      They make parking easier and with all the other cameras it is the easiest car I’ve ever had to park.
      The cameras have high resolution and are far better than mirrors at night.
      I am careful not to knock them though. They’ll be expensive.

      A full glass roof is like a sauna in Summer in Australia, not because it’s hotter than an English Summer ( because it’s not where I live) but the Sun is almost over head. The Ioniq 6 sunroof is the best option here.

      The range on my AWD 20 inch wheel model is between 283 and 289 miles/ 460 km average including mountain passes and hvac on at 100 km/ hr. On flat highways it’s around 315 to 320 miles over 500km at 100km/ hr.
      Hope this info helps.
      A pretty fair review of what I have come to regard as a brilliant car.

    Good review Pete and I’m with you on the wing mirrors. Save the money and get “proper” mirrors.

  5. BayLuke96 Avatar

    Nice review. Agree totally about the silly mirrors being ‘tech for tech’s sake’ and less effective for the reasons you amply demonstrated.

    Interesting to hear about the efficiency. Compared to how impressive the EV6 GT was on your return run from Wales, I expected a much better result, although of course your driving conditions were different. Which car did you prefer?

      EV6 for me 👍

    Interesting comment that you’ve not tested an EV that’s returned more 4m/kWh, but this look really aerodynamic…… my Ioniq 38kWh has never dipped below 4.3 m/kWh in the 50,000 miles that I’ve done in it. Looks a great car, and a pleasant change for the bricks on wheels that seem so popular. Agree about the door cameras, a backwards step in safety and functionality.

    So glad you pointed out the major issue with door mirror cameras. I believe that they are potentially dangerous

    1. HQBProductions Avatar

      They certainly are dangerous and should be banned. I tried a Genesis GV60 with them and my right hand covered up the screen entirely so add in the strange perspective and the effect Peter describes that makes reversing all but impossible and you get the most stupid bit of “tech” in a car on sale today!! 😬😬

  10. davidthegolfer999 Avatar

    Pete, I think it was Volvo who discovered that the aero benefits of the mirrors was more than negated by the power used to run them and their screens. I also agree will the inability of the mirrors to allow you to change perspective. They are just gadgets, and we know what happens to gadgets.

    Totally agree with you about the cameras instead of mirrors. I sat in an Ioniq 5 with cameras a while ago, (Fully Charged 🤔) and I will never get the camera option! Seems that the blind spot view when indicating was off the wing camera too.

    Totally agree with you on those awful mirrors, and the idea of smart motorways is even more awful they should never existed!, great video as always 😊😊

    As one that started driving back in the late 1960s I really can understand your comments about missing the engine noise and fun (or not) with the gearbox.
    I have a pal even older that still drives and the bings and bongs in his hybrid drives him bonkers! Tend to agree with your thoughts on the wing mirrors and am sure that automatic speed limiters will become mandatory quite soon.
    Nice looking car but mad money unless you are fortunate to run it as a company car.
    Hope the bike ride went well.

    I was visiting Holy Island a few day ago and one of these was in the car park – I have to say it stood out and was getting a lot of attention. It is quite an attractive car in real life, certainly stands out in the crowd over the Tesla’s.


    Regarding the gear changer on a wheel stalk, personally I much prefer it to a changer in the old gear stick position. It means you don’t need to take your hands off the wheel to change gear, which is quicker and safer. Let’s face it, the only reason that gear sticks are traditionally in the centre console, is because that’s where the gear box runs and you needed that’s physical connection. I agree on the lack of difference and character in EV driving. I suppose that the suspension set up can vary, but otherwise they are all essentially the same. I’m all for an EV for daily duties now as they are simply a far better option than an ICE car for boring day to day miles. Far more efficient, great performance and are simply very easy to live with (especially a Tesla). The problem is, like most of us, I love cars and the character and sound from a great engine and the connection you get to the car with a great gearbox and steering feel. The only way to really get all of that now is to buy an older ICE car. Something like a 997 911, which has a great box, a superb flat 6 engine, well set up suspension and hydraulic steering.

    That’s a good honest review.
    Having had a good look at the Ioniq 6 when buying our Tucson Hybrid N Line S (and we’re delighted with it) we were very impressed. Adore the styling, especially the rear end. It’s an elegant car. Those digital mirrors are a real no no though and the small sunroof is a bit half hearted, guess it could be to save weight. All in all as your review aptly shows, it’s an excellent EV. Cheers 😁

    I have the digital mirrors on the Ioniq 5 Namsan edition. If that model had been available with normal mirrors i would have gone with that (wanted the panoramic roof). But despite initial concerns (prior to getting the car) they work abosulety fine and took all of 30 mins or so to get used to. Coming from a Mk V GTI they offer a far improved level of vision. Work fine in sunny, dark and rainy conditions. You can adjust the brightness if needed.. I wouldnt necessarily gravitate to cars with them in the future but no complaints so far. I see the Lotus Eletre has adopted them.

    I’ve had my Ioniq 6 FE since early May. I just love it! Love the looks, drive, ride, smart features.. you get used to bings and bongs and the level of driving assist is awesome!

      I have Kia Niro EV (new version), not sure how similar software it is compare to Ionic 6, but i can change traffic warning buffer from -10 to +10 km/h so it wont bing and bong me all the time

    Smart motorways are in the same category as those mirrors and touch screens for all the major controls in a car…….

    Great review as always 👍🏻👍🏻

    From an aesthetic point of view I like the back end of the car, a little reminiscent of a ‘CLS’ (which grew on me!) The mirrors, I agree with you, tech for tech sake, not as truly useful as a couple of bits of mirrored glass and likely as not very expensive to replace. Nice review, thanks.
