The movie Twins comes to mind when we talk about the Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric SUVs. In that movie, the twin brothers, played by Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger, showed us how different twins could be while sharing DNA.

The EV6 and Ioniq 5 don’t have the same separation as the two starts of the movie, but there are reasons to choose one of these electric vehicles over the other. Here’s why you’ll want to drive the EV6, not the Ioniq 5.

The Kia EV6 offers more driving range than the Hyundai Ioniq 5

Although these two electric SUVs share Hyundai’s E-GMP platform, the Kia model provides more driving range across the board. Looking at similar models for diving ranges, we find the Ioniq 5 Limited AWD offers 256 miles of driving range. The similarly equipped EV6 GT-Line AWD brings 274 miles of driving range.

The most efficient versions of these two electric vehicles also offer differences in driving range. The efficient Hyundai offers 303 miles while Kia delivers 310 miles of electric driving.

Kia brings a more powerful GT model to the lineup

Even though these two electric vehicles haven’t been on the roads for long, we’re already looking for high-performance versions. Kia has a new EV6 GT on the way, which delivers 576 horsepower and incredible driving dynamics. We expect Hyundai to do the same with the N performance brand but haven’t received official word to support it yet.

The Kia EV6 is sportier than the Hyundai Ioniq 5

If you’re looking for an electric vehicle with a sporty side, the Kia EV6 could be what you want to drive. Between these two EVs, the Kia offers suspension tuning and steering straddling the sporty line to give you a dynamic drive. The Ioniq 5 delivers a softer edge which isn’t as engaged with the road.

Cabin controls in the EV6 are driver-focused

You don’t need a steep learning curve to use the functions and features in the Kia EV6. Where the Ioniq 5 is advanced and futuristic, the EV6 is more traditional and driver-focused. The overall feeling of the EV6 cabin is cozy, comfortable, sporty, and useful.

How much does the Kia EV6 cost?

That long-range model we alluded to is the Kia EV6 Wind setup in RWD. This model brings you 310 miles of driving to give you a long range and an easy way to enjoy the drive in this electric SUV.
