Discover the New Kona at Motorvogue in Bedford and Norwich.
The New Kona has arrived with stylish design, advanced technology and comprehensive connectivity.
The New Kona Mild Hybrid features a 48V powertrain providing optimum power with low emissions, the perfect combination of dynamism and efficiency. It’s able to run on electric when decelerating or whilst stopped, conserving fuel at regular intervals on your daily drive. It’s an enhancement over traditional start & stop technology as it is able to switch to electric before the car comes to a complete stop.
The striking new front end design stands out through its sporty look and eye-catching, protective cladding panels. At the top, the stretched bonnet ends sharply over the centre grille with a wide, distinctive shape giving the Kona a powerful look. Enhanced LED DRLs provide a narrow, piercing look to the road ahead. Lower down, the main bumper fascia connects smoothly to the wheel arch claddings, forming a unique and robust armour in a contrasting material to the main body.
On the lower bumper, the robust skid plate appears to embrace the lower air intake, and visually complements the surfaces surrounding the main grille. Integrated into the bumper corners are vertically-oriented aerodynamic inlets that improve air flow.
The side body retains the muscular and sculpted shape of the previous Kona, but the sporty wedge-shaped silhouette is further accentuated by the visual connection between the shoulder creases and the sharper, cleaner, more harmonious front end.
At the rear, the new taillights feature horizontally-stretched graphics. These reflect the unique identity of the front end light signature. The new rear bumper, which also follows the protective armour concept of the front and sides, is also built with a contrasting material.
In its dimensions, the new Kona is 40mm longer than the previous version, giving it a more sleek and dynamic look to balance out its wide, strong visual stance.
Kona fits around the ebb and flow of your life with a spacious 374 litre load area which expands to the 1,156 litres when the rear 60:40 split seats are folded down.
The powertrain line-up for the new Kona reaches new heights in terms of performance and sustainability. Enhanced 48-volt mild hybrid powertrains help you lower your CO2 emissions and burn less fuel. The mild hybrid technology is applied to the 1.0-litre T-GDi petrol engine with 120 PS. This turbocharged engine, standard across the Kona Mild Hybrid range, is matched with the latest 6 speed automated manual transmission.
All models in the new Kona range are equipped
with a range of new or enhanced safety and driving assist features for added
peace of mind. For example, Leading Vehicle Departure Alert (LVDA) alerts the
driver if they do not react fast enough when the vehicle ahead of them starts
moving. Another is Lane Following Assist (LFA), which automatically adjusts
steering to assist the driver to keep in the centre of the lane. Forward
Collision-Avoidance Assist with pedestrian detection (FCA) is now standard. Rear
Seat Alert (RSA) alerts the driver if someone or something is in the back seat
when they go to exit the vehicle. In addition, all new Kona models are now available
with eCall, a feature which automatically alerts emergency services if the
airbags are deployed or the e-Call button is pushed.
The Kona range starts with the SE Connect, offering a high level of standard equipment. Its exterior is distinguished by its 17-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured door mirrors, LED daytime running lights, roof rails and rear spoiler with integrated LED brake light.
Inside there is manual air conditioning, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, electric windows front and rear, a 10.25-inch Driver's Digital Supervision Instrument Cluster, USB port, automatic activation for the headlights, plus an 8-inch touchscreen Display Audio with rear-view camera and Smart Device Integration with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. New for the model is front passenger-seat height adjustment, allowing occupants to ensure a commanding view out.
The sporty new Kona N Line trim features unique front- and rear-end styling and 18-inch alloy diamond-cut wheels. In contrast to other Kona models, the entire front bumper and the wheel-arch claddings are in body colour. Instead of a rugged front skid plate there is an N-style aerodynamic lip with corner fins to accentuate the car’s road-hugging stance. At the rear there are LED lights, and a large central aerodynamic diffusor in a contrast colour flanked by sharply creased lines and N-style fins that aid airflow.
For the cabin, the new N Line Kona is equipped with unique detailing including distinctive red stitching, metal pedals, and N logos on the gear shift and on the seats – all contributing to a sportier look and feel.
Compared to the entry-level SE Connect, the N Line boasts a range of additional comfort and convenience features. For example, in place of air conditioning there is climate control, and comfort is further boosted by an automatic dimming rear-view mirror, automatic windscreen wipers, USB ports for rear-seat occupants, rear parking sensors, and interior ambient lighting. The driver can also fold the door mirrors at the touch of a button.
The centre console display increases from 8-inch to 10.25-inch and incorporates Touchscreen Satellite Navigation with Mapcare and LIVE Services. Also added is Hyundai’s Bluelink® (free-of-charge for the first five years) – a smartphone app-based connected car service that enables drivers to carry out a number of different functions whilst away from their vehicle, including remote central locking activation and vehicle parked location information. The sound system is upgraded to KRELL Premium Audio with eight speakers, external amplifier and subwoofer.
Additional specification includes;
The Kona Premium adds anthracite body garnish to the exterior and distinctive 18-inch
alloy wheels. Inside there are heated front seats, electric parking brake and
front parking sensors, and the active safety features are augmented with Intelligent
Speed Limit Warning (ISLW).
Additional specification to SE Connect;
The top-of-the-range Kona Ultimate adds LED headlights, electric front seat adjustment, and
an electric tilt and slide sunroof. Added to the active safety systems are Blind
Spot Collision Warning (BCW), Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW), and
the new Safe Exit Warning (SEW) system, which prevents passengers from exiting
the vehicle if it is not yet safe to do so.
