KONA Hybrid Introducing the KONA Hybrid Starting From

KONA Hybrid

Now available at Marshall Hyundai in Ashford, Canterbury, Gatwick, Gloucester, Hereford, Maidstone & Worcester.

Refreshed and reimagined, the new Kona Hybrid is taking the award-winning sculpted lines and stylish edge of its predecessor to the next level with fresh new design enhancements backed up with the latest smart tech like cutting-edge connectivity and safety features.

Exterior Design

Confident and striking – from the powerful alloy wheel designs to the minimalistic headlights, this car is a hybrid more than just its powertrain, fusing small family hatchback functionality with a vibrant SUV style. With a wide range of exterior colours – there’s something to match your personality. The eye-catching new main bumper flows smoothly into the wheel arch claddings, forming a unique wrap-around armoured belt under the bold new grille. The sporty silhouette is accentuated by the visual connection between the shoulder creases and the sharper, cleaner, more harmonious front end. The new rear bumper follows the protective armour concept of the front and sides – and is highlighted by the robust new metallic-coloured skid plate.

Technology and Convenience

Founded in 1980, Krell Industries is one of America’s largest manufacturers of high-end audio equipment. Premium and Ultimate trims feature a Krell 8 speaker system, external amplifier and sub-woofer. Connectivity is standard on the Kona Hybrid. Two Bluetooth® devices can be connected at once to stream music, plus Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are standard across the range.

Versatile, comfortable and connected, the new Kona’s interior is designed to express a more modern and refined look than its predecessor. Rugged, yet refined – perfect for an active lifestyle – the new design updates match the exterior flair every step of the way. And when it comes to smart tech, you can pick and choose from the very latest in cutting-edge connectivity and comfort features. 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” touchscreen standard on Premium and Ultimate trims provide easy access to car features, infotainment, navigation, and your favourite apps and music via smartphone mirroring. Located in the centre console of Premium trims and above, a wireless charging pad (Qi standard) lets you easily charge a compatible Qi-enabled smartphone without the use of cables. The brilliant, fully digital 10.25 cluster gives the cockpit an additional high-tech edge. Its colour-scheme changes depending on the drive mode selected: Eco or Sport. The right hand dial displays hybrid powertrain information like the current state of battery charge as well as the current level of power usage.

Bluelink®

Bluelink® Connected Car Services bring seamless connectivity directly into the new Kona Hybrid with online voice recognition and a wide range of features to make your drive more convenient and enjoyable.

Activate and control features like climate settings, infotainment controls and side mirror heating as well as steering wheel heating via voice command.

Performance

​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 43.5 PS 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 innovative Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) delivers a smooth ride for a truly enjoyable driving experience and faster responsiveness. The 1.56 kWh high-power battery has superior charge/discharge characteristics, maximizing both electric driving and energy regeneration.

A chassis which is light and strong, suspension that delivers a more dynamic drive and engines that are efficient and fun to drive. When starting or driving at low speed, the electricity stored in the battery powers the electric motor to accelerate the KONA Hybrid.​ During heavy acceleration or driving uphill, the electric motor and petrol engine work in parallel to maximise acceleration and minimise fuel consumption.​ At constant speeds, power is provided by either the petrol engine or the electric motor, whichever is the most energy-efficient in that situation.​ The regenerative braking system charges the battery by using the electric motor to slow the car. When decelerating or driving downhill, the energy generated is stored in the battery.​ When decelerating (e.g. through braking or when driving downhill) the electric motor operates as a generator and regenerates kinetic energy into electric energy, which is then stored in the battery.

Safety

Because nothing’s more important than the safety of your loved ones, we gave the new Kona Hybrid a safety upgrade. With Hyundai SmartSense, our cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, the new Kona Hybrid has been updated with the very latest safety and driving assist features for added peace of mind.

  • Rear Cross-traffic Collision-avoidance Assist (RCCA) - When reversing out of areas with low visibility, the system not only warns the driver if vehicles approach from the side – it also applies the brakes automatically, standard on Ultimate trim.
  • Lane Following Assist (LFA) - The new KONA Hybrid features Lane Following Assist (LFA) uses the front camera to monitor the lines of the road. In the event of an unintended lane departure, it will first alert the driver and then apply counter-steering torque to get the car back on the correct course if necessary, standard on all trims.
  • Blind Spot Collision-avoidance Assist (BCA) - The new KONA Hybrid features Lane Following Assist (LFA) uses the front camera to monitor the lines of the road. In the event of an unintended lane departure, it will first alert the driver and then apply counter-steering torque to get the car back on the correct course and brake if necessary, standard on Ultimate trim
  • Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (SCC with S&G)More safety and less stress. Maintains a set distance to the vehicle ahead, automatically reducing or increasing speed to a pre-set limit. In “stop & go” traffic, the set distance is maintained, standard on Premium and Ultimate trims.
