Why It’ll Be Hard to Call the 2024 Kia EV9 a ‘Family SUV’  

The 2024 Kia EV9 presents a fascinating dilemma when it comes to labeling it as a “family SUV.”  

Unlike traditional family SUVs, the EV9 boasts a powerful dual-motor setup with 379 horsepower.  

Its acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.3 seconds challenges the family-friendly stereotype.Families often prioritize long trips and practicality.  

The EV9’s 99.8-kWh battery provides an estimated range of 483 kilometers, making it suitable for daily use but perhaps less ideal for extended family road trips.  

The EV9 offers high-tech features, including second-row captain’s chairs, a heat pump, and advanced driver-assistance systems.

These elevate it beyond the typical family hauler.  

While the EV9 accommodates three rows, its focus on performance and design might compromise some interior space compared to larger SUVs.
