The Hyundai Kona Hybrid presented at the beginning of June can be ordered now in Germany at prices starting at 26,900 euros. For the market launch in autumn, the customer can choose between the three features Trend, Style and Premium.
The most economical Trend equipment includes an electric parking brake, automatic climate control, heated multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles and an electrically adjustable lumbar spine support for the driver. DAB radio with USB connection, 7-inch touchscreen and the two smartphone connections Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also on board ex works.
The Style equipment (starting at 28,500 euros) is visually different from the trend, standing apart with chrome trim on the radiator grille or the underride guard on the rear panel. Technical differences include dark tinted windows, a rain sensor, a smartphone shelf with wireless charging function and 18-inch wheels.
The Premium (starting at 30,700 euros) comes ex works with black leather seats, a smart key access system, full LED headlights and a head-up display. The navigation system with 10.25-inch touch screen, Krell sound system, traffic sign recognition and the BlueLink telematics system also costs 1,300 euros extra here.
As reported, the new variant is powered by well-known Hyundai Kia Group technology. The combination of the 1.6-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine (77 kW) and a 32 kW electric motor is already being used in the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid and Kia Niro Hybrid. The system output of 104 kW (141 hp) also corresponds to the two models already available.
The interior of the Kona Hybrid is slightly upgraded: a seven-inch display is standard, and a 10.25-inch monitor with a navigation system can also be ordered at an extra charge. The Blue Link smartphone app is also available for the Kona Hybrid. The SUV thus largely offers the functions that Hyundai also introduced with the model upgrade of the Ioniq Hybrid.
