Hyundai Ioniq 6: a look inside...



You can already tell the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 6 EV sedan will share a few of its interior bits with the new Ioniq 5.
The steering wheel and switchgear all seem to be similar. Even the part of the dashboard under the screens seems very similar. 
And why not, since they already will share platform and powertrain.

But it will also make the more expensive Ioniq 6 less special than the Ioniq 5. Since that interior might feel a bit familiar by the time it comes out.
As for the exterior, the new sedan will be quite a letdown compared to the concept that previewed it. 
While the Ioniq 5 stayed very close to the Giugiaro influenced Concept 45. 

I also wonder about the new Ioniq models pricing in the US. Which hasn't been revealed yet.
The 5 is rumored to start at between $35 000 and $40 000.
 This means the 6 would have to be more expensive. Hyundai could end up having quite a tough time fighting against the Model 3 if it doesn't offer a price advantage.

The interior of the Ioniq 6 looks better than the 5, but pales in comparison to the Kia EV6. It just occurred to me, this HMG EV naming scheme is going to get really confusing. Lol

I really dislike the interiors of the Ioniqs. Just screams cheap and plasticky to me. Wish they had gone with a more upscale approach.

You are overusing the word SINCE and don't need it.

it's odd that the Ioniq 6 will have the power window controls in the center console (you can see them in that picture) and not on the front doors...

As expected, this interior language is not going to age well

The Ioniq 6 interior has a real 1980's Buick vibe to it.

The interiors alone will kill any chance the Ioniq series has. I can't even look at it.

The Ioniq 5 and EV6 look like winners, but the Ioniq 6 is shaping up to be very big disappointment compared to its SUV sibling. The prophecy concept was visual gold, the Ioniq 6 doesn't look like it will capture that same visual style :(
