    The Ioniq 6 is based on the Prophecy concept and gets multiple long curves and creases along with an aerodynamic silhouette. Hyundai says that the Ioniq 6 has a drag coefficient of just 0.21, which is helped by flush door handles and cameras in place of traditional wing mirrors. At the rear, the Ioniq 6 gets pixel-style LED tail-lights, a ducktail rear spoiler and a curved shoulder line, similar to the Prophecy concept.

    On the inside, the Ioniq 6 features a flat central console, also seen on the Ioniq 5 and a minimalist design for the dashboard. What stands out here is the pair of 12-inch screens – one for the instrument cluster and the other for the infotainment system. Compared to the Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 gets a more driver-centric positioning. It also has a few more driver-focused touches like the ‘EV Performance tune-up’, which allows the driver to specify multiple drive mode configurations for different situations. 

    Keeping sustainability in mind, the Ioniq 6’s interior is trimmed in a variety of eco-friendly materials like flax-seed-dyed artificial leather.
