Driven the Ioniq 5. Sat in the EV6. Both are definitely SUVs (or crossovers or whatever daft name being used this month - CUV!). Both have elevated driving positions and ride height.

They’re cars and they’re electric. That’s pretty much all they have in common with the 3.

The Hyundai Ioniq (original) is a great Model 3 alternative, although it regularly gets ignored. We own one. It’s great.
I moved from an Ioniq Electric to the Model 3. It was a great car. Lane keep was a bit iffy and I rarely used it. Every other feature was superb.
It was only ever let down by range. The heater and air con made a big dent. In winter, the 122 mile range was easily whittled down to under a hundred miles. The final straw for me was a 70 mile round trip on a particularly cold day with the heater on the whole time. I arrived home with 12 miles left out of 121. I never had a single issue other than that.

We have the 38kwh version and find range between 170 and 190 miles. Unlike the Leaf we had before it, it seems to cope with weather/motorway speeds well. I've never understood why it gets ignored so often.
