2024 Hyundai IONIQ 6 Limited: Pros and Cons

2024 Hyundai IONIQ 6 Limited hero

It was a while since I had a full electric vehicle at my disposal, but that changed with the good folks at Hyundai threw me the keys to the 2024 Hyundai IONIQ 6 Limited. I’ve spent about a week with Hyundai’s newest EV sedan, just enough time to tell you what is great about it and what not so much. Take a gander at the PROs and CONs of the 2024 Hyundai IONIQ 6 Limited.

PRO: Fast Acceleration

One of the best things about EVs is for the most part, they are secretly all E-performance cars due to the EV power they have available on tap. The IONIQ 6 Limited features a dual-motor powertrain kicking out 320 horsepower to all of its wheels. You put your foot down from a stop and you will hit 60 in just over 4 seconds.

PRO: Stylish Interior

The interior styling is quite futuristic and every EV minded. Huge crisp clear 12.3 inch digital displays are your gauge cluster and infotainment screens. Your gear lever is integrated into a stalk on the steering wheel, steering wheel feels unique, drive modes up on the wheel too. Hyundai is trying something different with the IONIQ line and it is working.

PRO: i-Pedal

I like to call it Go-Kart mode. One pedal driving on/off. Your foot on the gas it goes, take it off and it is a brake.

PRO: Pretty Good EV Range

Depending on your wheel size your range will be different but you can get up to 316 miles on an 18 inch wheel set and 270 miles if you have a bigger 20 inch wheel set. Once you run out of range you can charge from as low as 10% all the way to 80% in less than 20 minutes.

PRO: Base Model Price

One of the best things about the IONIQ 6 Limited isn’t even the Limited trim. It is the fact that its base SE trim is one of the most cost effective EVs on the market starting at under $40k.

PRO: Future N?

Hyundai was just showing off the IONIQ 5 N. There is nothing to stop them from turning the IONIQ 6 into an N too!

CON: Low Headroom

A big gripe I had was with my over 6 foot frame my head was touching the roof in certain driving situations. I didn’t have this problem in many sports cars and performance cars I have tested on the market and was surprised to have the problem in the IONIQ 6.

CON: Drive Modes = EV Controller

I love drive modes in vehicles, I might be the only guy who has a whole series on drive modes in vehicles. In the IONIQ 6 the drive modes are mostly an EV mileage controller. You can cut 20 miles just by going from ECO to Sport.
