Introducing the new Hyundai Kona

With the rise in the popularity of compact SUVs, it's no surprise to see Hyundai have entered the fray with their own take on the crossover concept; the new Hyundai Kona.

While the updated Kona represents a new design direction for the company, under the bonnet the same dependable engineering ticks over inconspicuously but with more efficiency and refinement. The exterior, despite its Hyundai family-likeness, has a European familiarity about it.

A raft of new technologies and drivetrains have found their way under the assertive-looking body shell, meaning you're investing in more than just a pretty face.

The new Kona is even available with electrified powertrains, as a full hybrid or an all-electric Crossover SUV.

Design and Practicality

Hyundai Kona: Exterior, Side

There's no denying that the new Kona has that unmistakable rugged crossover look, what with the raised ride height, chunkier tyres, and plastic cladding around the wheel arches. However, it's also one of the most distinctive, thanks to its assertive front-end design and sharp features.

With a futuristic design approach, the slimmed-down Daytime Running Lights also incorporate the indicator. There's also a wide range of eye-catching colours to choose from that are complemented by the bold alloy wheel designs.

The driver’s seat is height adjustable with rear seats splitting 60:40. This hatchback crossover offers generous boot space of 361 litres, giving you all of the room you need to complete your weekly shop without any hassle.

Technology and Safety

The new Kona comes with a high level of safety equipment. Smart cruise control includes full stop and go function, while blind-spot collision avoidance assistance is available on automatic models. Other standard features include lane following assist and forward collision avoidance to keep you safe on the road.

The infotainment system with DAB radio and Bluetooth® technology keeps you connected and entertained whilst you’re on the move. USB and AUX options enable you to play your music your way. With the higher spec cars, you also get rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera. The 8-inch touchscreen system includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

New Kona also makes use of a 10.25-inch gauge cluster screen, fully digitising the speedometer and tachometer for increased configurability and improved connectivity features.

Engines and Performance

Hyundai Kona: Exterior, Front

Powertrains for the new Kona are punchy, efficient and refined. Kicking off the range is a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol, badged T-GDI, which puts out a useable 118bhp. Equipped with 48-volt mild hybrid technology, this engine can achieve up to 47mpg on the combined WLTP cycle.

Also available is the 104bhp 1.6-litre GDI direct injection petrol engine, which is combined with a 41bhp electric motor in the Kona Hybrid. Mated to a 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), the self-charging hybrid model delivers a smooth ride and an efficient driving experience.

There's also the Kona Electric, which boasts an outstanding all-electric range of up to 300 miles and a fast 0 to 62mph acceleration time of just 7.9 seconds.

Finally, completing the range, is the exciting performance SUV; the Kona N.
