Kia EV6 hatchback - Reliability & safety
Kia scores highly with owners and the EV6 is loaded with safety kit
While this may be the first model built on Kia's new E-GMP platform, the brand has built up a great reputation with some of the people who’ve already made the switch to electric cars. Models like the Kia e-Niro and Kia Soul EV have proved durable, with an excellent driving range which doesn't appear to diminish significantly over time.
Kia EV6 reliability
Both Kia and Hyundai have built up solid reputations as some of the leading proponents of EV technology, and models have sold in large numbers around the world. Hopefully this knowledge will have helped inform lots of decisions to make Kia’s first ground-up electric car even better.
Kia is certainly flying high in our 2021 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, placed only behind Porsche. It was near the top in every category, and boasts superb scores for reliability and build quality, along with the use of their infotainment. Not only that but owners also told us their Kias were fun to drive and stylish.
As something of a technology flagship for the brand, the EV6 is bristling with safety features. Even the standard version gets autonomous emergency braking, which looks out for cyclists and pedestrians, as well as other vehicles. It also has a navigation-based smart cruise control system that can assist with driving in heavy traffic. GT-Line cars add blind-spot warnings, supplemented by semi-autonomous parking, highway driving assist, an augmented reality head-up display and a system to help avoid collisions while parking.
