The inside of the IONIQ 6 was explicitly designed to function as a cozy, individual retreat. A driver may choose from a palette of 64 colors and six pre-selected themes to alter the appearance and atmosphere of the inside cabin using the Dual Color Ambient Lighting.
By altering the brightness of the first-row interior lighting in accordance with the vehicle’s speed, the Speed Sync Lighting mode enhances the emotional component of the driving experience.
The optional Comfort for Relaxation first-row seats encourages relaxation by just altering the seat angle. Additionally, all of its seats are designed expressly for all-electric vehicles and are around 30% thinner than those in other conventional vehicles, giving passengers greater room. To increase consumer convenience, there are four type-C and one type-A USB ports available.
The EV Performance Tune-up system, which enables the driver to flexibly alter steering effort, motor power, accelerator pedal sensitivity, and driveline mode, significantly improves the Hyundai IONIQ 6 individualized driving experience. With a few button presses, drivers may quickly generate a number of combinations to suit their own requirements.
The e-ASD technology included in the IONIQ 6 makes electric vehicles more entertaining and user-friendly. The perfect, spaceship-like sound is introduced to the cabin, and the texture of the sound varies depending on how the car is being driven.
The Hyundai IONIQ 6 delivers excellent performance
To meet the demands of every client, IONIQ 6 is offered with a variety of drive motors and battery packs. Rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) electric motor configurations may be paired with the long-range 77.4-kWh battery (AWD). With a combined power output of 239 kW and 605 Nm of torque, the top-tier twin motor arrangement is an AWD option.
With this PE setup, 0 to 100 km/h can be reached in 5.1 seconds.
The IONIQ 6 consumes energy at an astonishing pace. According to WLTP, the energy consumption of the 53-kWh basic battery with the 18-inch tire and RWD motor option is predicted to be less than 14 kWh/100 km. As a result, the IONIQ 6 is among the market’s most energy-efficient cars.
The E-GMP design of the Hyundai IONIQ 6 is capable of supporting 400-V and 800-V charging infrastructures, with 800-V charging being the default; 400-V charging may be supported without the need for any extra parts or adapters. The IONIQ 6 can charge from 10% to 80% in approximately 18 minutes using a 350 kW charger.
The unique vehicle-to-load (V2L) feature of IONIQ 6, like IONIQ 5 before it, enables users to charge any electric item. This feature is great for charging essentials during a power outage, camping, or outdoor tasks. Using an auxiliary adapter that is already on hand, V2L is activated and connected to the external charging port.
A second outlet for charging laptops, phones, and other devices is located below the back row seat in addition to the exterior power outlet.
Cutting-edge technology and entertainment features
The 12-inch full-touch infotainment display and 12-inch digital cluster integrated into the Hyundai IONIQ 6 s modular touchscreen dashboard provide innovative technology for an improved digital user experience that can be tailored to the customer’s requirements.
Real-time travel radius mapping is offered by the IONIQ 6’s infotainment system depending on the battery’s current level of charge. The linked vehicle services of the system also assist in looking up and planning the optimal route that includes a charging station along the way.
On the widescreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto appear fantastic. Two devices may be linked simultaneously using Bluetooth multi-connection functionality, one for phone conversations and one for music streaming.
Eight speakers, including a subwoofer, from the high-end Bose sound system, are arranged thoughtfully throughout the inside of the car to provide a great listening experience. Updates for the Bluelink® Infotainment/Map system are included.
A wide array of safety and autonomous features
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, the latest generation of Hyundai SmartSense, are included in the IONIQ 6, providing comfort and safety while driving.
Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2) assists in keeping the car in its lane while driving, even over a curve, and in maintaining a certain distance and speed from the car in front.
If the side vehicle is approaching closely, it helps to modify the route of the car so that no one is put in danger. Holding the steering wheel while using the turn signal switch causes the lane to shift automatically in the direction selected if traveling over a specific speed.
By reflecting the driver’s ingrained driving style, Smart Cruise Control (SCC) aids in maintaining distance from the car in front and maintaining the pace set by the driver. The feature learns the driver’s driving behavior when SCC is not in use. When SCC is engaged, the function suspends learning and immediately begins to imitate the previously observed driving manner.
While driving, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) assists in preventing accidents with objects in front of the car. It issues a warning if a preceding vehicle abruptly slows down or if a pedestrian or stopped vehicle poses a danger of a forward collision. If the danger of an accident persists after the warning, it might help with emergency braking.
It may aid with emergency braking while driving if there is a possibility of colliding with a bike up ahead or with an oncoming car when turning at an intersection.
Along with improved Junction Crossing, Lane-Changing Oncoming, and Lane-Changing Side features, the SEL and Limited trims now come standard with Evasive Steering Assist. If there is a possibility of colliding with oncoming traffic approaching from the left or right while driving through an intersection, it automatically aids with emergency braking.
When changing lanes while driving, it automatically aids with avoidance steering if there is a danger of an accident with an approaching vehicle in the next lane or a vehicle ahead of it in the next lane. Additionally, it automatically aids with steering avoidance while driving if there is a chance of an accident with a person who is partly in the planned route of the car.
High Beam Assist (HBA), which may aid turn on and off high beam lights for approaching cars in the opposite incoming lane at night, and Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), which adjusts vehicle speed to fit the speed limit, are two more semi-autonomous driving capabilities.
There are various driver attention-related features in Hyundai IONIQ 6. Driver Attention Warning (DAW) monitors the driver’s focus while they are driving and issues warnings as needed. When indicators of driver inattention are found, it issues a warning and, if necessary, suggests a break. The driver receives a warning if the leading car moves away during a halt.
In a variety of driving circumstances, many features work together to prevent crashes. When changing lanes, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) assists in preventing crashes with the vehicle’s rear.
If the danger of an accident with a rear-side vehicle is identified while using the turn signal to change lanes, it may provide a warning. It may help with emergency braking while leaving a parallel parking space when there is a danger of an accident with a car on the backside.
For a safe lane change, the Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM) feature shows video of the blind-spot view. The video of the blind-spot vision for the specified direction is shown when the turn signal switch is activated.
Safe Exit Warning (SEW), which issues a warning when a vehicle is approaching from the rear side while getting out of the car, is another feature of the IONIQ 6 that ensures the safety of passengers in the backseat. If an approaching vehicle from the rear side is detected while the door is opened to escape the car after it has stopped, a warning is sent.
Parking is now simpler than ever thanks to a range of Parking Convenience features. Remote Smart Parking Assist 2 (RSPA 2) assists with remote parking or remote exiting from outside the car from a parking space. This function permits parking in a parallel, perpendicular, or even diagonal manner.
For secure parking, the Surround View Monitor (SVM) shows video of the environment surrounding the car. When parking or departing, Forward/Side/Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (PCA) helps drivers avoid crashes with nearby objects and people.
It gives a warning if there is a chance of colliding with objects or people when parking and leaving. If the likelihood of an accident rises after the warning, automated emergency braking is initiated.
In a similar manner, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) reduces the risk of crashes with oncoming cars while the vehicle is in reverse. It issues a warning if there is a possibility of colliding with an approaching vehicle on the left or right side when reversing. If the likelihood of an accident rises after the warning, automated emergency braking is initiated.
