New KONA

from €18,500

On to better.

Dare to be different

Always bold and truly one-of-a-kind, the new Kona has now undergone a comprehensive redesign, with sleeker and more refined lines further enhancing its uniquely confident look – setting it apart from every SUV in the class.

The striking new front-end has been completely reimagined – including the distinctive new LED headlamps and slimmer Daylight Running Lights up top.

Discover the dynamic new look.

The striking new exterior design stands out through its sleek sophistication and eye-catching, protective cladding panels. The stretched bonnet ends sharply over the centre grille with its wide, distinctive shape giving the new Kona a more powerful look. Enhanced LED DRLs provide a narrow, piercing look to the road ahead.

The sleek new tail lamps now feature horizontally-stretched graphics, which mirror the unique look of the front end light signature.

Performance

The new Kona reaches new heights in terms of performance and sustainability. New 48-volt mild-hybrid powertrains help CO2 emissions and burn less fuel. A wide range of suspension and handling enhancements deliver a smoother ride and improved road control. The steering has also been fine-tuned to match the new suspension character and upgraded tyres provide better fuel efficiency and lower emissions.

The 1.0-litre T-GDi petrol engine delivers 120 PS and is available with a 6-speed
manual or – for the first time – an optional 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT).
For better fuel efficiency a 48V mild-hybrid version with a 6-speed Intelligent Manual
Transmission is also available.
Max Power: 120 PS, Max. Torque: 200 Nm( 7DCT)/ 172 Nm (6MT and 6iMT).

New transmission options for your driving style

The new Kona is available with a 6-speed manual transmission, a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT) or the newly developed 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT). The iMT supports the reduction of fuel consumption in a 48V mild hybrid system car.

Intelligent Manual Transmission

For increased fuel efficiency in the mild-hybrid version, the iMT decouples the engine from the transmission after the accelerator is released. The vehicle goes into coasting mode.

6-speed manual transmission

The smooth-shifting 6-speed manual transmission is designed for fast, precise gearshifts.

The 48V mild hybrid system

Save fuel and reduce emissions with the optional 48-volt mild hybrid system. It supports the combustion engine with additional torque during acceleration – depending on the battery’s state of charge and the degree of acceleration. As a result, the powertrain’s fuel economy and CO2 emissions are improved. You can discover more about how the system works in various driving situations below.

The mild hybrid system is particularly useful in city traffic, with the Mild Hybrid
Starter Generator (MHSG) supporting the combustion engine when re-starting after
traffic stops. It supports a faster and smoother engine start with supplemental torque,
drawing on energy from the 48V battery.

 

 

 

Under acceleration, the starter generator supports the engine with additional power,
depending on the battery system’s charge and the driver’s accelerator input. Once the
required speed is reached, the system shifts to neutral mode, delivering no power.
As a result, CO2 emissions and fuel consumption can be reduced.

 

 

At a constant speed, the system either is at idle or acts as a generator
charging the 48V battery, depending on the battery state of charge.

 

 

In active braking or overrun phases, the rotating crankshaft powers
the starter generator, which then recuperates a maximum output of
10 to 12 kW. The generator converts the kinetic braking energy into
electricity and feeds it back into the 48V battery.

 

When coasting at low speeds, the start-stop function activates at 30 km/h.
Under deceleration between 30 and 0 km/h, and with the clutch disengaged,
the engine is switched off completely.

Extended start-stop

When coasting at low speeds, the start-stop function activates at 30 km/h. Under deceleration between 30 and 0 km/h, and with the clutch disengaged, the engine is switched off completely.
