Why is it called "5"? Seats 5? I thought the current Ioniq seats 5. They have a "6" planned, BTW.

I wouldn't call cars like the Kona a 'styling home run' (more like a foul into the bleachers) but this car is nice looking.

Agree but that Ionic looks like a winner, also don't forget the Kia Soul and its homely grill(but voltamps did hint at recent). The PHEV Ionic 5 may very well be my daughter's next vehicle, well if we feel like driving to CO to pick one up..... Last we checked it was only available for sale in CARB states :(

I thought the Ioniq 5 was on a BEV platform. So you mean the older Ioniq PHEV?

I like the look of the Kona better than the original Bolt though, but the backseat legroom in the Kona is a deal breaker....

I agree, I think the new ioniq sub brand is all BEV.

Yes sorry, the Ioniq sedan is what I was referring to which has a PHEV.

I agree with those above essentially saying the Kona has awkward, but not "ugly" styling. The old Ioniq (not the new Ioniq5) & the Niro have always been OK, conservative styling. I think the recent Soul styling updates make it look kinda cool. All subjective of course.

As for the real topic of this thread, the Ioniq 5 (and it's cousin the Kia EV6) looks very cool. Most would agree with me on that. Pre-orders have already proven this to be true.

The Ariya will compete directly with all the new stuff coming out. It looks good too, so the market is getting competitive. Plenty of nice EVs coming out.
