2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6: this is it…
After all the spy shots and illustrations we’ve seen, it is actually weird to see the real thing. The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 ends up looking a bit weird to me.
Of course, no one was expecting the fantastic Prophecy concept to translate to production without major changes. Still. At least in these early photos, the Ioniq 6 looks quite busy. Although the profile view is still quite striking. But the very angular trim bits on the lower bumpers are in sharp contrast with the very soft shapes of the rest of the design. There s a lot of unnecessary black trim everywhere. I think the super angular stuff on the bumpers works better on the Ioniq 5.
We had seen the interior before as well. And it looks fine. The photo above shows the Korean market rear view cameras that will not be available in the US. These side screens won’t be there either. The interior is a mixed bag as well. Maybe other photos will look better. It just seems designed by different teams. The console doesn’t seem to belong in the same car…
At last, the Tesla Model 3 has its first real competitor. Which is good news.
More on this very soon. The official unveiling is still over two weeks away.
