Sleek, expressive and subversive — what makes the Hyundai KONA stand out is its originality. A strong and unique identity is forged by impactful contrasting styling features and a bold aesthetic that’s sure to turn heads.That approach to design is continued through to a cabin that’s packed with character and technology, while a range of impressive engines deliver on performance and efficiency.
The cabin of the Hyundai KONA is an arena of character, with a plethora of customisation options available. For S, SE and Premium models, bold colours in Acid Yellow, Tangerine Comet and Blue Lagoon can be optioned for the seat cloth — though those looking got a tamer look may fancy Galactic Grey or Phantom Black.
Three Black Leather colour packs are available too which add flair to inserts around the cabin as well as piping to the seats — Orange, Red and Lime. These are available on Premium SE and Premium GT models, in addition to its leather seats.
Efficiency and performance is delivered in abundance across the KONA range thanks to its range of petrol T-GDi and diesel CRDi engines.
As much as 56.5mpg (WLTP Combined) can be returned while emitting just 112g/km is possible with the 1.6-litre CRDi outputting 113bhp in high-spec Premium SE (with optional sunroof and safety pack), proving efficiency doesn’t have to come at a cost of luxury.For a more exciting edge, a 1.6-litre T-GDi unit delivering 175bhp can be had on Premium GT models. This potent option sends power through a clever AWD system, and is linked to a high-tech dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Safety and technology
Opt for Premium GT, and the full Hyundai SmartSense suite comes included with the Hyundai KONA. Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Driver Attention Alert (DAA) are highlights of the package — also available optionally across the range.As standard, tech highlights also include automatic headlights, cruise control and support for Bluetooth devices.
