Representing the next evolution of our SUV family, the KONA small SUV joins the Tucson and Santa Fe 4x4, offering the same all round ability, distinctive style and latest technology. The best moments in life are the ones in which the world doesn’t shape us – but we shape it. That’s why the all-new KONA offers a cutting-edge combination of style, technology and performance to help you define it according to your rules.
This versatile new SUV is available in five trim levels – S, SE, Premium, Premium SE and a top of the range Premium GT.
Kona PLAY rocks a stylishly contoured design and 18” alloy wheels. Get connected to your favourite driving playlists through Android AutoTM and Apple CarPlayTM, and let the 7” touchscreen display audio system help get the show on the road. With a rear parking camera and guidance system, and automatic headlights, you can expect the kind of smooth journey which deserves a standing ovation.
Sleek, expressive and subversive – the KONA’s essence lies in its originality. Its strong identity has been forged from contrasting styling features, a wide stance and desirable good looks. You can choose an all-new KONA to suit your personality with a wide range of vibrant exterior colours – from Pulse Red to Acid Yellow – and a colour-contrast roof, available with selected colours on Premium SE and Premium GT trims.
It’s the attention to detail that makes the all-new KONA so special. The stylish cabin reinforces the stand-out exterior design, with high quality materials throughout and plenty of connected technology for good measure.
The all-new KONA provides you with all the advanced technology and seamless connectivity that modern life demands. Selected models also offer wireless smartphone charging, a head-up display and a high-mounted floating touch screen.
On Premium SE trims and above, a head-up display projects relevant driving information – like speed, navigation commands and warnings – directly into the driver’s line of sight.
The 8” touch screen (available on Premium trims and above) integrates 3D navigation, media and connectivity features. It also comes with a free 7-year subscription to LIVE Services, which includes real-time traffic and weather updates and nearby points of interest.
Located in the centre console of Premium models and above, a wireless charging pad (Qi standard) lets you easily charge a compatible Qi-enabled smartphone without the use of cables.
Every KONA includes Bluetooth® connectivity and DAB radio. SE models and above feature Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, while Premium, Premium SE and Premium GT trims also offer high-end audio from KRELL with an 8-speaker system, external amplifier and subwoofer.
Following the road is one thing. Bending it to suit you is something else. The all-new KONA offers the choice between two highly efficient, turbocharged petrol engines. The KONA delivers up to 176PS with agile turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, plus 4X4 on selected models.
Sitting at the heart of the all-new KONA’s engine range, the compact turbo-charged 1.0 T-GDi petrol engine boasts 120 PS and 172 Nm of torque, with CO2 emissions as low as 117 g/km. During everyday driving, this smaller capacity engine is highly efficient. When needed, the turbo delivers powerful low-end torque that works uniformly across the rev range, making it extremely responsive and fun to drive.
The 1.6 turbocharged engine available on the KONA Premium GT takes you from 0 to 62 mph in under 8 seconds. This in-house developed, downsized 1.6 T-GDi four cylinder turbo delivers 177 PS and 265 Nm of torque, giving you the power and poise to handle city streets and country roads with ease. It comes paired with a newly developed, compact four-wheel drive system and smooth-shifting 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission.
KONA’s 6-speed manual transmission is optimised for use with the 1.0 T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine, delivering impressive fuel efficiency and responsiveness with every shift.
The 7-speed DCT combines the efficiency and fun of a manual transmission with the convenience of an automatic. Two available driving modes – Normal and Sport – allow you to match your drive to your surroundings, with Sport mode adopting a different shift pattern, holding gears longer before shifting.
Choose your mood, connect with your music and connect with your world. The KONA features performance audio, seamless connectivity and ultra-modern tech to keep you in touch, on time and protected.
The all-new KONA Premium GT offers four wheel drive for enhanced handling and cornering. Advanced Traction Cornering further improves KONA’s agility and stability, actively distributing torque while accelerating in curved sections.
Hyundai SmartSense is our cutting-edge driver assistance system, built to provide you with more safety and peace of mind. From braking to avoid collisions, to detecting vehicles in your blind spot, the all-new KONA is constantly monitoring your environment to protect you from potential hazards while driving.
Optional on trims up to and including Premium SE, and standard on Premium GT, the AEB system uses a front mounted camera and radar sensor to monitor the traffic ahead. If the system detects a potential collision with a vehicle or pedestrian, it will warn the driver, automatically slowing or stopping the vehicle if required.
The Lane Keeping Assist system uses the front camera to monitor the lines of the road. In the event of an unintended lane departure, it will first alert the driver and then apply counter-steering torque to get the car back on the correct course if necessary.
Standard on Premium SE and Premium GT trims, this smart system uses two radar sensors in the rear bumper to keep track of traffic in your blind spot. An alert will sound if you indicate to change lanes when a vehicle is occupying your blind spot.
The All-New KONA Premium GT features powerful and efficient full LED headlights. Plus High Beam Assist which automatically detects on-coming drivers and changes from high beam to low. A Static Bending Light system illuminates the area to the front and side of your car when cornering in low light.
Fitted on Premium SE trims and above, the Rear-Cross Traffic Alert system reduces the risk of a collision when reversing by monitoring the area to the rear of the car with two radar sensors.
This standard feature has raised safety and convenience to a new level by continuously observing and analysing driving patterns. When a pattern of fatigue or distraction is identified, the DAA system gets the driver’s attention with an audible pop-up message suggesting a break.
