The perfect EV doesn’t exist yet. However, Hyundai is been getting pretty darn close to cracking the code. The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 features are mostly well-executed and helpful, but there are a few things you need to know. 

Three possibly annoying 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 features 

I know I’ve already gushed about the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 features that create a well-balanced EV. It’s fun, comfortable, advanced, and charges quickly. But there are still a few improvements to make. 

I won’t be complaining about its curvy look, because that’s subjective. However, people seem to either like the way it looks or hate it. I think it grows on you as you drive because it provides a great experience. 

Also, it’s designed to be the most aerodynamic car in the world and to reduce coefficient drag. So it combines a unique style with functionality. Now on to potential complaints. 

1. The Hyundai Ioniq 6 has sensitive parking sensors 

If you leave the Ioniq 6 parked behind another car or by a wall, be prepared. When you return later to start it up, you’ll hear blaring parking sensors as soon as you put it in reverse. 

The sensors are harsh and can be surprising, especially early in the morning. Also, why do the front sensors continue to scream while reversing? You’re moving away from the obstacle you parked too close to. 

But changing the setting in the Ioniq 6 is easy. There’s probably a way to make the sensors a little quieter. Plus, they do help in tight parking situations. 

2. The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 has limited visibility 

Seeing out of the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is easy, thanks to a larger windshield. But the rear window is much smaller. It’s narrow and the rear headrests can get in the way. 

Opting for a higher trim level with the 360-degree camera improves visibility while parking and reversing, though. 

Also, the materials on the dash and behind the rear seats can be reflective at times. The sun can hit the materials at just the right spot to reflect in the front and rear windows. This happened to me twice and I was upset due to not having my sunglasses. 

3. There are primarily touchscreen controls 

That last thing on my list of potentially annoying 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 features includes the infotainment and HVAC controls. 

While the system works quickly and has beautiful graphics, some people may not enjoy the touchscreen controls. Critics claim that they can be distracting and people enjoy physical dials more than touch-sensitive buttons and toggle switches.
