The most-anticipated electric vehicle of the year, the 2022 Kia EV6, has finally arrived at Kia dealerships across the country. As Kia's first dedicated all-electric vehicle, the all-new EV6 offers the dimensions of an SUV with the styling of a sedan, creating a one-of-a-kind crossover look that you rarely get to see in an EV. However, the new Kia EV6 has a new competitor in the all-new 2022 Hyundai INONIQ 5. In this head-to-head comparison, our team at Kirby Kia of Ventura in Ventura, CA, will take you through the specs and key features of both these EVs and see how the 2022 Kia EV6 compares with the 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5.
