Trim Comparison: 2024 IONIQ 6 SEL vs. Limited


The 2024 Hyundai IONIQ 6 is an exciting new electric vehicle (EV) that offers impressive range, performance, and cutting-edge technology. With its sleek design and advanced features, the IONIQ 6 is sure to turn heads on the road. If you’re considering purchasing this innovative EV, it’s essential to understand the differences between the available trim levels. In this article, our friendly sales team at Huffines Hyundai McKinney compares the IONIQ 6 SEL vs. Limited trims to help you make an informed decision.

Exterior Features

Both the 2024 IONIQ 6 SEL and Limited trim levels showcase a modern, aerodynamic exterior design. The Limited trim features a more premium appearance than the SEL, with additional chrome accents and unique 20-inch alloy wheels. In contrast, the SEL trim comes standard with 19-inch alloy wheels and fewer exterior embellishments. Both trims offer a range of exterior color options, allowing you to personalize your IONIQ 6 to your taste.

The IONIQ 6’s sleek, coupe-like silhouette is a testament to Hyundai’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive design. The vehicle’s low drag coefficient of just 0.21 is among the best in its class, contributing to its impressive efficiency and range. LED projector beam headlights come standard on both trims, providing excellent visibility and adding to the car’s futuristic aesthetic.

Interior Comfort and Convenience

The interior is where the differences between the IONIQ 6 SEL and Limited trims become more apparent. The Limited trim gets you a more luxurious cabin experience, with premium leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and a memory function for the driver’s seat and mirrors. The SEL trim features a combination of cloth and artificial leather seating surfaces, which are still comfortable but less upscale than the Limited’s offerings.

Both trims provide ample cabin space and cargo capacity, making the IONIQ 6 a practical choice for daily commutes and long trips alike. The Limited trim adds some extra convenience features, such as a wireless charging pad and additional USB ports for charging devices on the go. The 64-color ambient interior lighting, standard on the SEL and Limited, allows you to create a personalized atmosphere within the cabin, enhancing the overall driving experience.

Technology and Infotainment

The 2024 IONIQ 6 comes equipped with an impressive array of technology and infotainment features, regardless of the trim level. Both the SEL and Limited trims feature a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch touch-screen infotainment system with navigation and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. 

The digital instrument cluster provides clear, customizable information, while the infotainment system offers intuitive controls and a responsive interface. The Limited takes technology and infotainment a step further with an upgraded Bose Premium Audio system featuring eight speakers for an immersive listening experience.

Performance and Efficiency

The 2024 IONIQ 6 has two electric motor and battery configurations, depending on the trim level. The SEL trim comes standard with a single electric motor that produces 225 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, paired with a 77.4 kWh battery pack. This setup provides an impressive driving range of up to 361 miles on a single charge, making it ideal for both daily commutes and longer trips.

The Limited trim offers an optional dual-motor all-wheel-drive (AWD) configuration, which increases the total power output to 320 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque. While the AWD setup slightly reduces the driving range to 316 miles, it offers enhanced acceleration and handling capabilities, making it an attractive choice for performance-oriented buyers. Regardless of the trim level, the IONIQ 6 delivers a smooth, quiet, and responsive driving experience that is sure to impress.

Safety and Driver Assistance

Hyundai has prioritized safety in the design of the 2024 IONIQ 6, and both the SEL and Limited trims come standard with an impressive array of safety features and driver-assistance technologies. These include forward collision-avoidance assist, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, and smart cruise control with stop and go. These features work together to provide a safer and more confident driving experience, helping prevent accidents and reduce driver fatigue.

The Limited trim adds even more advanced safety features, such as Highway Driving Assist 2, which combines adaptive cruise control with lane centering to help reduce driver fatigue on long highway trips. The Blind-Spot View Monitor displays a live video feed of the vehicle’s blind spots in the digital instrument cluster when activating the turn signal.

Pricing and Value

As expected, the 2024 IONIQ 6’s SEL and Limited trims have different starting MSRPs. The SEL trim starts at around $47,000, while the Limited trim starts at approximately $52,000. The price difference can be attributed to the additional luxury features, advanced technologies, and optional AWD configuration offered on the Limited trim.

When considering the value proposition of each trim, it’s essential to factor in your specific needs and preferences. If you prioritize luxury and advanced features, the Limited may be worth the extra investment. The rear-drive SE with the long-range battery offers the best value for those looking for an affordable option that still delivers impressive range and technology. Both trims provide a compelling package that showcases the best of Hyundai’s EV technology and design. 

It’s also important to consider how long it takes to charge different versions of the IONIQ 6. Using a Level 2 home charger, the Standard Range takes about 5.5 hours, while the Long Range and AWD versions take closer to seven hours.
