Runway Red is the sportiest color choice for the 2024 Kia EV6 GT-Line

The GT-Line is the right pick in the 2024 Kia EV6 range for customers who desire a sporty styling similar to the top-end GT trim but without its expensive price tag and compromising range. Recently, I saw a 2024 Kia EV6 GT-Line AWD in the Runway Red color on display and took that opportunity to take a deep dive into its exterior and interior.

Design & Features

The 2024 Kia EV6 GT-Line AWD is available in Yacht Blue, Snow White, Steel Matte Gray, Aurora Black Pearl, and Runway Red colors. I think the Runway Red color emphasizes its high performance and dynamic character better than the rest.

Exclusive bumpers, a distinctive grille, 20-inch five-spoke aerodynamic alloy wheels, and gloss black accents give the 2024 EV6 GT-Line AWD a particularly sporty styling. Auto pop-out flush door handles, a smart power liftgate, and a power sunroof are some more exterior features worth noting.

Interior

Inside, Kia equips the 2024 EV6 GT-Line AWD with 8-way power driver’s seats with 2-way power lumbar adjustment and memory (driver-only), heating, and ventilation functions, heated steering wheel, and alloy sport pedals. The 60/40 split-folding rear seat offers a multi-angle recline function and also a heating function, but only on the outboard positions.

On the tech front, the 2024 EV6 GT-Line AWD includes features like LED ambient lighting, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, AR-HUD, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wired Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto support, and a surround-view monitor.

Specifications

The 2024 Kia EV6 GT-Line AWD sports two permanent magnet synchronous motors that generate 320 hp and 446 lb.-ft. of torque. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds, achieve a top speed of 117 mph, and tow up to 2,300 lbs.

Powering the two electric motors is a 77.4 kWh battery pack consisting of lithium-ion Nickel-Cobalt-Manganese (Li-Ion NCM) cells. Charging it from 10 to 100% with a Level 2 charger takes as little as 7 hours and 10 minutes. Charging it from 10 to 80% with a Level 3 charger is a matter of just about 18 minutes. On a full charge, it allows the 2024 EV6 GT-Line AWD to travel up to 252 miles, as per EPA.
