The Ioniq 6’s cabin is a curious place. It seems like a ’70s TV sci-fi imaginative and prescient of the long run, with its soft-shades-of-gray palette and clean curves. Hyundai’s pixel patterning continues right here, too, illuminated throughout the steering wheel and stippled into the middle console trim. Total, there are loads of textures — and loads of plastics, lots of that are recycled, and lots of of that are arduous to the contact — however in some way it really works, a minimum of at the moment.
Injected into all that is Hyundai’s acquainted expertise: twin 12.3-inch shows, one for the motive force’s instrumentation and the opposite a touchscreen for the infotainment. There’s wired Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM, a Bose audio system, Hyundai’s BlueLink distant app help, and a digital key. Restricted trim will get an influence outlet within the again row, and there are many USB ports, a 360-degree digital camera, and dual-zone local weather management.
The UI is brighter than Hyundai’s common darkish theme and will get customized EV graphics for issues like vary, however usually issues will not be too outlandish in case you’ve been inside a latest mannequin from the automaker’s group. It is simple to navigate, and I like how easy the Ioniq 6 makes it to customise the steering wheel controls. That makes up for there being fairly just a few of them.
