Odd Controls
Perhaps our biggest complaint about the EV6 is its dual-purpose controls below the display screen. Knobs provide temperature control for the driver and passenger with haptic buttons for fan speed and air direction, but at a press of the selector button all the functions change. Now the knobs are for volume and tuning with shortcuts to navigation and audio controls. Multiple times we reached out to adjust the volume and changed the cabin’s temperature instead. These rather confusing controls are not simply limited to the EV6 — all of the latest Kias use this new functionality. We hoped after a week the setup would improve with use, but unfortunately after a week it was still annoying.
