2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6: in the flesh…

Last Updated:

It seems Hyundai has taken the camouflage off some of its Ioniq 6 prototypes. As these photos were recently taken in Korea and show us what the new electric sedan looks like out driving around.
All I can say is that it’s still pretty polarizing. I think the rear views might actually look better on this car. As the front end has a lot of black trim. And that black line across the whole front end should have been the same color as the car. At least.
The rear end isn’t very clean either. These vertical trims on the bumper just look weird.
I know it’s supposed to be reminiscent of the concept. But it ends up looking like someone tried to copy the concept and just couldn’t do it. It has an amateurish homemade feel as the concept felt very elegant, refined, and mature. 
Who knows, maybe it looks great in person? At least it’s not the same old stuff we see all the time.

  1. My God, that thing is hideous!! What a disaster.

    And a real shame, too. Hyundai / Kia seemed to be on a roll and really had people impressed.

    Then this happens.

  2. Infiniti tried this look with the J30 decades ago, and it didn't work well then. And with so few sedan buyers these days, how many will actually opt for the one with the least useful trunk?
