The New KONA Introducing the KONA

Hyundai Kona

Taking it to the next level

Expressive from every angle, the Kona is taking the award-winning sculpted lines and stylish edge of its predecessor to the next level with new design enhancements and the latest smart tech like cutting-edge connectivity and safety features.

You personalise it

Sleek, expressive and subversive – the Kona’s character lies in its originality. Its strong identity has been forged from contrasting styling features, a confident stance and distinctive looks. You can personalise Kona to suit your personality with a wide range of vibrant exterior colours – from Pulse Red to Surfy Blue – and a two-tone roof on N Line trims.​


Kona’s twin headlamp design features sleek, angular forms, with separate LED daytime running lights. These sit on top of the headlight cluster, rather than below, giving the Kona a unique visual identity – by day and by night.


The Kona adopts Hyundai’s new signature cascading grille. It features a distinctive mesh pattern which enhances the car’s expressive, dynamic appearance.

Rear Spoiler

The sleek rear spoiler also houses an integrated LED brake light.

LED Rear Lights

Kona’s twin rear-lamp design features strikingly slim brake lights which sit high on the body. These use efficient LED technology on N Line trims and above.


You shape it

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.

You connect it

Connectivity is built into the Kona with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ as standard on all trim. There’s also premium audio available from Krell, one of America’s oldest and most respected manufacturers of high-end audio equipment. N Line trim also benefit from an immersive 8-speaker system with external amplifier and subwoofer.

You discover it

The Kona provides you with all the technology and connectivity that modern life demands – and then some. Selected trims also offer wireless smartphone charging, a head-up display and a high-mounted 10.25” floating touchscreen.​

Head-up display (HUD)

Hyundai’s head-up display (HUD) is standard on Ultimate trim. It projects key driving information into the driver’s line of sight, letting them focus on the road.

Floating 10.25” touch screen

The 10.25” touch screen (available on N Line and above) provides easy access to car features, infotainment, navigation, and your favourite apps and music via smartphone mirroring.

Wireless phone charging

Located in the centre console of N Line trims and above, a wireless charging pad (Qi standard) lets you easily charge a compatible Qi-enabled smartphone without the use of cables.

Digital Information Cluster

Traditional dials and speedometers have been replaced with a smart 10.25” digital information cluster, making sure that crucial driving information is always visible and legible.

Bluelink® Connected Car Services

Bluelink® Connected Car Services bring seamless connectivity directly into the new Kona with online voice recognition and a wide range of features to make your drive more convenient and enjoyable. On top of the many clever features you can control with the Bluelink app and a free five-year subscription to Hyundai’s LIVE Services is also included with the navigation system.

You control it

The new Kona features an enhanced range of safety and driving assist features for added peace of mind. Leading Vehicle Departure Alert (LVDA) warns the driver when the vehicle in front departs from an idle state, like at a stoplight or in a traffic jam. Rear Seat Alert (RSA) and Safe Exit Warning (SEW) have also been added.

Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA)
Sensing the road ahead with radar and a camera, the FCA system (standard across all trims) automatically brakes if the vehicle ahead suddenly slows down, or if it detects pedestrians on the road.

Lane Keep Assist (LKA)
The Lane Keep Assist system (standard across all trims) 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.

Blind Spot Collision Warning (BSW)
Standard on the Ultimate trim, 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.

Full LED Lighting Technology
The Kona Ultimate features powerful and efficient full LED headlights. Plus High Beam Assist which automatically detects oncoming 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.

Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW)
Fitted on the Ultimate trim, 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.

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

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.
