Expressive from every angle, the new 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.
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 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.
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.

The new Kona Hybrid is equipped with both a petrol engine and an electric motor. They work together with the support of a powerful battery to deliver excellent fuel economy and cut down on emissions – switching seamlessly between the conventional engine and electric motor, sometimes using both. And as part of the regenerative braking system, the electric motor also helps slow the car while charging the battery.
High torque and high efficiency are the principal attributes
of the 42PS electric motor. It delivers impressive
acceleration when starting, and can add extra power
at higher road speeds
A specially calibrated 1.6-litre GDI direct injection petrol engine
delivers 105 PS with class-leading energy efficiency.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
