Leaked: Here’s the full details of the Malaysian-spec Hyundai Kona! 01

The full specs of the Malaysian-spec Hyundai Kona have leaked out, giving us a good idea of what Hyundai Sime-Darby Motors has prepared for its upcoming B-segment SUV.

For starters, HSDM will offer three variants of the Kona, namely 2.0 Standard, 2.0 Mid, and 1.6 T-GDI High.

As the names suggest, two powertrains will be offered. The first is a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine that does 150 PS and 180 Nm, mated to a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

Apart from the powertrains, we can also confirm that the top-spec 1.6 T-GDI variant of the Kona will receive the Hyundai Smart Sense ADAS suite, which encompasses features such as Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Rear-Cross Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW), Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Smart Cruise Control (SCC - adaptive cruise control in Hyundai lingo), and Smart High Beam Assist.

With this ADAS suite in place, as well as the inclusion of an 8-way power-adjustable driver seat, Qi wireless charging pad, and heads-up display, the top-spec Kona should be one of the better-equipped B-segment SUVs on sale in Malaysia.
