The Kona is a new breed of SUV designed to take on the city. With Kona, driving and parking in the urban jungle doesn’t have to be stressful. Enjoy the agile manoeuvrability of a passenger car, and the higher perspective of an SUV – it’s really the best of both worlds! Furthermore, Kona is filled with technology that just makes everything easier, including Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and an available Head-Up Display to project important information within your line of sight, so you can keep your attention on the road.
The Kona has been designed to turn heads — and to raise pulses. The dynamic design catches the eye with unique details that highlight the strong Hyundai SUV DNA at its core, starting with our signature cascading front grille design, muscular wheel arches and advanced lighting. Bold body cladding runs along the side profile and rear bumper for a sporty look, and available two-tone colour options let you customize your Kona to suit your style preferences.

Choose between two powerful and fuel-efficient engines to get you where you want to go. The standard 2.0L engine delivers 147 horsepower, 132 lb-ft torque and is mated to a smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission. If you are looking for more power, the available 175 horsepower 1.6L Turbocharged engine takes you from 0 to 100 km/h with a smile on your face and is paired with a fast-shifting 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with SHIFTRONIC® manual mode for performance and fuel efficiency in perfect balance. The Kona also features an available All-Wheel Drive system for superior traction and is paired with a multi-link rear suspension to enhance handling and cornering performance.
KEY FEATURES: Standard 2.0L engine | Available 175 horsepower 1.6L Turbocharged engine | All-Wheel Drive | Multi-link rear suspension | Drive Mode Select | Hill start assist
1.6L Turbocharged GDI engine
The available 175 horsepower 1.6L Turbocharged engine takes you from 0 to 100 in under 8 seconds. Together with a fast shifting 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission and All-Wheel Drive, it gives you the power and poise to handle city streets and country roads with ease.
The available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system offers optimum handling, cornering performance and improved traction to help make slippery and bumpy surfaces safer. It also features an advanced Active Cornering Control system which monitors driver inputs and road conditions, automatically applying power and braking force to the appropriate wheels to maintain course in adverse conditions.
Hill start assist
This system temporarily engages the brakes during a stand-still start on a hill to prevent the vehicle from sliding backwards. The brakes are engaged for approximately 3 seconds or until there is sufficient acceleration force to propel the vehicle smoothly uphill.
Hyundai SmartSense™ is the suite of available driver assistance systems that is offered throughout our vehicle lineup. They’ve been developed to help alert you to, and even avoid, unexpected dangers on the road. Available technologies include Lane Keeping Assist to apply corrective steering assistance to remain within your lane, and Adaptive Cruise Control to automatically adjust your vehicle speed to maintain a set distance from the vehicle ahead.
The Kona features an ultra-rigid vehicle chassis at its core, what we call the SUPERSTRUCTURE™. We built it with our very own Advanced High Strength Steel, designed to be stronger, stiffer and lighter than conventional steel, to provide greater benefits in safety, ride comfort and fuel economy. In the event of a collision, the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ helps protect occupants inside the cabin by absorbing harmful energy and redirecting it away from the passenger compartment.
Blind-Spot Collision Warning
Using two radar sensors in the lower rear bumper, the available Blind-Spot Collision Warning system visually warns you of traffic in the blind spot area. Should you set the turn indicator in such a situation, the Lane Change Assist will sound an alert if the vehicle in the adjacent lane is approaching at a faster speed than you are travelling to safely pass.
Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist
Drift outside your lane without signaling and this available system will alert you with audible and visual cues. If no action is taken, Lane Keeping Assist can apply corrective steering assistance to help keep the vehicle within the lane markings.
Available Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system uses the front mounted camera and the radar sensor to monitor the traffic ahead. Should it detect a potential collision with a vehicle or pedestrian in your path, it will warn the driver and if required, automatically slow or stop the vehicle.
Driver Attention Warning
This available feature raises safety and convenience to an entirely new level by continuously monitoring and analyzing driving patterns. When a pattern of fatigue or distraction is identified, Driver Attention Warning gets the driver’s attention with an audible alert and pop-up message suggesting a driving break.
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning
Activated during reverse driving, the available Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning system uses radar to help identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side, even before they come into view of the standard rearview camera.
Adaptive Cruise Control
The available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system takes basic cruise control to the next level of convenience. Set your pre-determined speed and distance to the vehicle ahead, and ACC will automatically adjust your speed to maintain the set distance.
Parking Distance Warning - Reverse
Available Parking Distance Warning sensors detect and warn the driver of imminent obstacles behind the vehicle, to help you safely park. Audible alerts will increase in frequency as you approach closer to the objects.
