2023 Kia EV6 GT First Drive Review

2023 Kia EV6 GT First Drive Review

There’s no denying the appeal of the Kia EV6, with a maximum range of 310 miles and a 240-kilowatt charge rate. 

That changes with the arrival of the 2023 Kia EV6 GT, the new flagship of a model family that’s closely related to our Star Award–winning Hyundai Ioniq 5. 

The EV6 GT gets a handful of updates befitting its status at the top of the range, including more powerful front and rear electric motors, added chassis bracing, and revised styling. 

The net result is a more aggressive, sportier EV that makes 576 horsepower and 545 pound-feet – up a healthy 256 ponies and 99 torques over the next-most-powerful EV6. 

The alterations for the GT are relatively restrained, keeping the already sporty design of the regular EV6. 

That means a wedge-shaped side profile with a low nose, upward-arcing beltline, and a neat little spoiler with funky winglets.

In my opinion, the EV6 is much more overtly sporty-looking than its Ioniq 5 platform-mate, although it’s also more anonymous than the retro-tinged Hyundai.
