The interior of the Ioniq 6 isn’t quite as futuristic as the bold exterior of the “electrified streamliner”, but it does feature Hyundai’s excellent infotainment system and plenty of neat design touches, while the overall build quality is excellent.

Some of the Ioniq 5’s switchgear, including the rotary drive selector on the steering column and the unbranded two-spoke steering wheel, have been carried over into this saloon, though that’s hardly a bad thing. One obvious difference is the high centre console that separates the driver and front passenger in the Ioniq 6. It gives this model a more traditional sporty saloon-like feel in the cabin, although the driving position is still quite high up.

There are some more black plastic surfaces in the Ioniq 6 compared to the 5, which some will like and others may think adds a slightly less premium feel.

The Ioniq 6 is now available in two trim levels: Premium and Ultimate. The entry-level model is our pick, because the higher trim level doesn't add a whole lot of extra kit and costs quite a bit more to buy.

All models come with 20-inch alloy wheels, LED lights all round, heated front and rear seats, two-zone climate control, auto lights and wipers, a heat pump, heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, a powered tailgate, two 12.3-inch displays and smartphone connectivity. Even metallic paint comes as standard. 

Upgrading to Ultimate trim adds ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, a sunroof, a 360-degree parking camera and a Bose sound system. Ultimate-spec cars also get digital side mirrors, which replace the regular door mirrors with cameras, the feed from which is displayed on two screens either side of the dash.

Sat-nav, stereo and infotainment

Hyundai’s latest infotainment system is one of the most user-friendly set-ups around at the moment, and is packed with the latest features. Every Ioniq 6 comes with a 12.3-inch central touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display, which you can configure to show as much or as little information as you need.

All the menu layouts are logical, with large touchscreen buttons or a voice control system. The graphics aren’t quite as sharp as those in the BMW i4, but the screens respond just as quickly, and it’s simple enough to enter routes using the on-screen keyboard.

Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, wireless phone charging and over-the-air updates are standard on all models. The built-in sat-nav system is good too and can direct you to nearby charging stations.
