The verdict: Kia’s new 2022 EV6 electric vehicle impresses with its appealing range and affordable prices; families will also like the five-seat SUV’s roomy backseat and easy-access Latch anchors, which helped it earn high grades in our Car Seat Check.

Does it fit three car seats? No.

Take a look at how the Latch system and each car seat scored below in our Car Seat Check of the 2022 Kia EV6.

A Grade

  • Latch: The two sets of lower anchors sit just inside of the seat bight, where the back and bottom cushions meet. They’re well marked and easy to use. Three top tethers sit midway down the seatbacks. They’re also clearly labeled and easy to use.
  • Infant: This seat was easy to install, and our 5-foot-6-inch front passenger had ample legroom in front of it
  • Rear-facing convertible: Installation was again easy, and our front passenger had plenty of legroom in front of it.
  • Forward-facing convertible: This seat was also easy to install, and after raising the head restraint, it fit well.
  • Booster: With the head restraint raised, we were able to situate the booster flush against the seatback. The seat belt buckles are on stable bases that can be angled upward for easier use.

About Cars.com’s Car Seat Checks

Editors Jennifer Geiger and Jennifer Newman are certified child safety seat installation technicians.

For the Car Seat Check, we use a Chicco KeyFit 30 infant-safety seat, a Graco Contender 65 convertible seat and Graco TurboBooster seat. The front seats are adjusted for a 6-foot driver and a shorter passenger. The three child seats are installed in the second row. The booster seat sits behind the driver’s seat, and the infant and convertible seats are installed behind the front passenger seat.

We also install the forward-facing convertible in the second row’s middle seat with the booster and infant seat in the outboard seats to see if three car seats will fit; a child sitting in the booster seat must be able to reach the seat belt buckle. If there’s a third row, we install the booster seat and a forward-facing convertible. Learn more about how we conduct our Car Seat Checks.

Parents should also remember that they can use the Latch system or a seat belt to install a car seat, and that Latch anchors have a weight limit of 65 pounds, including the weight of the child and the weight of the seat itself.
