The Hyundai Ioniq 6 Techniq is the midpoint in a three-grade model line-up and costs $83,500, before on-road costs.
This dramatic all-wheel drive four-door sedan boasts one of the lowest-ever drag coefficient numbers for a production car at just 0.21. That’s lower than the super-slippery Tesla Model 3 and Porsche Taycan.
Equipment highlights include dual-zone climate control, twin 12.3-inch screens covering multimedia and instrumentation, sat nav, a head-up display, Bose eight-speaker audio (with digital radio), leather-appointed seats, 10-way power-adjustable and heated front seats, a power (hands-free) boot lid, a glass sunroof, 20-inch alloys and ventilated front ‘relaxation’ seats.
The Ioniq 6 is just under 4.9m long and the wheelbase is close to three metres, so no surprise there’s an impressive amount of space inside the car.
Two permanent magnet synchronous electric motors (one on each axle) produce a combined 239kW/605Nm and are powered by a liquid cooled lithium-ion battery.
Quoted WLTP range for the Techniq is 519km, with combined cycle energy consumption sitting at 16.9kWh/100km.
The Ioniq 6 showcases the latest version of Hyundai’s ‘SmartSense’ active safety suite - Everything from front and rear AEB to a bunch of assists, including lane change, blind spot, rear cross-traffic, and heaps more. No surprise it’s scored a maximum five-star ANCAP rating.
