After three years of construction, Hyundai has refreshed the Kona. There is also a new engine.
At the end of the year, Hyundai puts the revised Kona in the dealers' showrooms. Among other things, the mini-SUV has a modified design and optimized engines. In conjunction with the entry-level petrol engine with 88 kW / 120 PS, the Kona costs from 19.500 euros (including 16 percent VAT); that's around 500 euros more than before.
The redesigned front with a distinctive radiator grille is striking. In the N-Line equipment variant, which is available for the first time for the Kona, large air inlets as well as a rear apron with diffuser and a double-end exhaust pipe ensure a sporty appearance.
Hyundai is expanding its range of drive systems to include 48-volt mild hybrids: the 1,0-liter entry-level petrol engine with fuel-saving technology is optionally available (from 21.640 euros); the 1,6-liter diesel with 100 kW / 136 is standard PS as a 48-volt hybrid. The diesel (from 27.700 euros), like the new top gasoline engine with 146 kW / 198 hp, which also has 48-volt technology, is optionally available with front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The large gasoline engine is in the price list from 28.100 euros.
There is a choice of five equipment lines. The basic version "Pure" is only available for the 120 hp petrol engine without mild hybrid support. As a mild hybrid, it can be combined with the other comfort levels (Select, Trend, N-Line and Prime). Depending on the level of comfort, automatic air conditioning, electric parking brake, ambient lighting, heated rear seats, USB connection for the rear seat, heated steering wheel, head-up display and navigation are all part of the standard equipment. Hyundai's extras include metallic paints, an assistance package and a sliding glass roof.
The also revised Kona hybrid and electric models will follow in early and late January.
