Named after the idyllic coastal area of Hawaii, the all-new Kona is a premium subcompact SUV that is at once design-savvy and tech-centric, reflecting the pulse of the modern generation. While the cascading grille, the identity of the Hyundai family, presents the confident body styling of the car, the voluminous interiors highlight the thoughtful design standards it sets. Customers can personalise their car from a two-tone roof and a wide choice of exterior colours.
Customers can choose from two highly advanced engine and transmission options: a 1.6-litre T-GDI, or a 2.0-liter MPI Atkinson cycle unit. The 1.6-litre T-GDI is paired with a 7-speed double clutch automatic transmission (7DCT), and delivers 177 PS / 130 kW and 265 Nm torque. The ‘Nu’ 2.0-liter MPI Atkinson brings a combination of power, efficiency and low emissions, and delivers 149 PS / 109.5 kW and 180 Nm torque. It has a 6-speed automatic transmission engineered for reduced friction losses and improved power transfer.
Safety considerations are paramount in the new Kona. A floating navigation touchscreen helps motorists stay tuned to the traffic ahead, while a head-up display presents all relevant driving information right in the driver’s line of sight. With a five-star rating from Euro NCAP, the Kona is the safest vehicles in its segment with an array of features such Lane Keeping Assist, LED Bi Function Headlamp with Static Bending, Driver Attention Warning, Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning.
To meet the needs of the connected generation, Kona comes with a Display Audio that mirrors smartphone content on a 7-inch display, while an optional 8-inch infotainment system helps integrate navigation, media and connectivity.
