    Hyundai Kona – Overview

    The Hyundai Kona comes in two distinct faces, with one reserved for the N Line. The regular face is a heavy rework with a slimmer and wider grille taking centre-stage, and the Hyundai logo now sitting on the bodywork above the grille.
    LED daytime running lights, plus auto folding wing mirrors, bi-LED headlamps with bending lamps, fog lamps and LED tail lamps. The two-tone look with floating roof and roof rails is exclusive to the Turbo, as are front parking sensors.

    Of the two facelift looks, the Kona N Line’s face is more like the original, with the logo in the grille and a vent above the grille, although it’s now split into three. The Hyundai Kona N-style features an aerodynamic lip with low-lying corner fins plus larger and “more technical” air intake features.

    The N Line does away with the new full-width black cladding, or any cladding for that matter – it’s all body colour here. No skid plate-mimicking trim too – the rear end sports a diffuser and twin pipes on one side.The Hyundai Kona competitors that includes Proton X50 1.5TGDi, Toyota Corolla Cross 1.8G A/T, Kia Sportage 2.0 EX, Peugeot 2008 1.2 L Puretech and Mitsubishi Outlander 2.0 L.

    Hyundai Kona – Exterior

    The Hyundai Kona entire front clip has been redesigned and sees greater use of contrasting body cladding (black for the 2.0, grey for the Active), plus the addition of a slimmer grille, a top-mounted Hyundai badge and a U-shaped silver skid plate surrounding the centre air intake.

    The four-lamp signature has been retained, but the upper daytime running light graphics have been reshaped and give off a sharper look than before. On the Active, the DRLs also now double as indicators, freeing up space underneath for full-LED headlights in a scale-like design (the base model gets projector halogens). This look has been repeated at the rear of the Active model with its LED lower indicators (bulbs for the 2.0), set against a black background. 

    The upper taillights, which again feature LEDs on the Active, have also been revised for a cleaner wide-set look.
    The rear bumper design continues the design theme set by the front end, with increased cladding and a large skid plate. The alloy wheel options have also been revamped – the 2.0 gets surprisingly sporty-looking 17-inch turbine-style rollers, while the Active rides on 18-inch two-tone items with a criss-cross design.

    The SUV-style black plastic body cladding is connected from the bumpers to the wheel arches, and there are silver elements in the front and rear bumpers. This is the look of the 2.0 Active and 1.6 Turbo, but the latter gains a roof rack and two-tone body colour. all with a black roof (A pillars and wing mirror caps are also in black) for the two-tone look. Like the 2.0 Active, both the 1.6T and N Line come with 18-inch alloys, 18-inch two-tone rims with 235/45 tyres.

    The base model features black fabric trim to go with an exterior palette that is largely the same as before, including Chalk White, Pulse Red, Galactic Grey and Surfy Blue. It should be noted that the Active is the only one to get a soft-touch dashboard, as before.

The N Line cabin features black leather combined with suede, ventilated and heated front seats, red stitching, metal pedals and N logos on the gear lever, steering wheel and seats, electrochromic rear-view mirror and Qi wireless charger. Boot space for Turbo and Non-Turbo version are 361 litres and 374 litres respectively.
