Hyundai Motor has unveiled the latest vehicle in its line-up of stylish SUVs, the KONA compact SUV. The KONA SUV is designed to appeal to modern customers with active lifestyles. The SUV joins Tucson, Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport in a growing line-up of Hyundai Motor SUVs.
The KONA will go on sale in Korea later this month, followed by North America and Europe.
“With the KONA, we have created a stylish and highly functional compact SUV, perfectly suited to the needs of customers who pursue challenging, action-filled lifestyles,” said Euisun Chung, Vice Chairman of Hyundai Motor Company. “We aim to set new standards for the compact SUV segment, with appealing design, cutting-edge connectivity and class leading safety features.”
The compact SUV adopts Hyundai Motor’s new family identity, the Cascading Grille, featuring a sporty mesh pattern, flanked by exceptional wing-type fenders that dominate the front design. The slim brake lights, turn indicators and reverse lamp are placed in a separate configuration, and makes the rear attractive too.
In addition to the instantly recognizable shape, a number of playful color variations allow buyers to customize their KONA. The roof is finished with a two-tone color scheme, providing high contrast between the body and wheels.
The AVN (Audio, Visual, Navigation) monitor incorporates Hyundai Motor’s advanced infotainment features.
The new KONA is offered with a combination of gasoline and diesel engines of various power outputs – dependent on the market. A 2.0-litre MPI Atkinson engine, a Gamma 1.6T-GDI engine and the Hyundai’s downsized 1.0 T-GDI turbocharged three-cylinder engine are on offer.
Class-leading active safety features include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA); High Beam Assist (HBA); and Driver Attention Warning (DAW). The car’s radar systems also assist with the Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) to detect approaching vehicles. The Rear Cross-Traffic Collison Warning (RCCW) detects when another vehicle may have entered the car’s reversing path.
The KONA is named after the coastal region on the Big Island of Hawaii, USA.
At the world premiere of the all-new KONA, Hyundai Motor unveiled a special edition that shares the name of the Marvel’s heroic and powerful character – Iron Man.
With greater width (+40mm) the KONA Iron Man Special Edition, special LEDs headlights, a matt grey hood, embellished with red and gold accents, are som eof the highlighst of the Iron Man Edition.
The special edition will go on display at Hyundai Motor’s newest Motorstudio in Goyang, Korea for a month following its global reveal.
