Inside, there are synthetic leather seats that are powered, heated and ventilated up front, twin 12.3-inch interior screens with a 5.0-inch climate panel in the middle, an eight-speaker stereo, wireless device charging and a powered tailgate. You also get 'Kia Connect' and over the air updates.

Next, the Earth adds better seats, gloss black exterior detailing, ambient interior mood lighting, a light-up logo in the steering wheel, and some extra safety kit. Crucially, you also get a twin-motor powertrain that makes more power, and a bigger battery.

Finally, the GT-Line builds on the Earth’s inclusions with 21-inch alloys, LED headlights, roof racks, privacy glass, digital side mirrors, a dual tilt-and-slide sunroof and remote park assist.

Kia EV9 Interior

Inside, the EV9's cabin is more pared-back and minimalist than you might expect, and I'm a big fan of the haptic controls embedded into the dash panel, and of the more old-school air-con switches that sit below it. The office chair-style front seats are super comfy, and I'm enamoured with the twin-screen set-up (two 12.3-inch screens joined by a climate control screen in the middle) which create a wall of tech in front of the driver.

Kia EV9 Boot Space

All EV9s get a heap of boot space, growing from 573L to 1233L and 2314L, depending on whether you have seven, five or two seats in place.

Kia EV9 Seats

The Kia EV9 is a true seven-seat vehicle, and its middle row is especially spacious, helped by a rail system that allows you to slide it forwards or backwards, depending on where you need the space. Things get a little tighter once you move to the third row, where leg room disappears and it feels a little tighter for full-grown adults. That said, it might be the easiest third row I've ever climbed into, with the second row not just tilting forward, but lifting up and towards the front, creating a space you can walk through.

Kia EV9 Speed

The Kia EV9 rear-wheel-drive model records a sprint to 100km/h of 8.2 seconds and a 190km/h top speed.

Because the AWD GT-Line is equipped with an "Acceleration Boost" function, it's faster to 100km/h than the AWD Earth – 5.3 seconds versus 6.0 seconds.

Kia EV9 Towing Capacity

The Kia EV9 has maximum towing capacity of 2500kg for the latest model available.

Kia EV9 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia EV9 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • I struggle to get my 2022 Toyota LandCruiser 200 into the garage

    I'll assume you mean the forthcoming Kia EV9 electric SUV. In which case, yes, you will struggle to fit it into a garage that only just contains a 200-Series LandCruiser, as the EV9 is, indeed, 75mm wider. Perhaps. See, at this stage, the images and specifications we've been dished up have involved the vehicle in its concept stage, and as car companies know only too well, not every aspect of a concept makes it to production (which would be sometime next year in the EV9's case).

    Whether or not the electric off-roader from Kia will have a mirror-retractor function is anybody's guess right now, but the images we've seen of the concept suggest that instead of conventional mirrors, the EV9 would use small cameras mounted in the mirrors' place, transferring the image to the info-screen inside the car. If that's the case, these tiny cameras would not need to be retractable, suggesting that the width of 2055mm quoted for the Kia is possibly a concept-only dimension.

    If the vehicle really reaches production as wide as that, it would have difficulty fitting down some Australian bush tracks; tracks that have been cut by generations of LandCruisers and Nissan Patrols. Then again, the EV9 has been designed for a global market, not just us. And let's not forget the width of a Hummer...

    The bottom line is you'll have to wait and see precisely how wide the Kia is when it finally goes on sale. but if your current LandCruiser is a tight fit, don't expect the Kia to be any easier to fit in your garage.

There are two battery sizes on offer. The RWD models (for now, just the Air) get a 76.1kWh lithium-ion battery which delivers a WLTP driving range of 443km.

The AWD Earth and GT-Line get a bigger 99.8kWh battery, upping the driving range to 512km and 505km, respectively.

All models are equipped with 800V architecture, which the brand says – when plugged into an ultra-fast charger – will help the EV9 go from 10 to 80 percent charged in just 20 minutes.
