The all-new Hyundai Kona 2.0 NU Executive Automatic Crossover definitely has the “wow” factor with a naturally-aspirated engine that has 110kW of power and 180Nm of torque. I took a test drive in the all-new Kona accompanied by New Car Sales Executive, Carina Pretorius, at Hyundai Roodepoort and found the drivability of this vibrant family SUV to be extremely comfortable.

Express yourself

“Funky” best describes this Kona’s interior design. There are two characteristic colour themes: Lime, for the Acid Yellow exterior and Red, for the other four exterior colours. On the inside, colour accents are featured on the air vents, around the gearshift, the engine start button ring, the stitching on the seats and the steering wheel.

Combined with sculptured lines and an impressive trendy edge, the Kona tells a story from every angle – there is no mistaking the distinction of this stylish Crossover SUV. The vehicle’s front twin headlight design with LED daytime running lights also form an unmistakable front light signature.

At your fingertips

Standard in this model is the Touchscreen Infotainment System with Apple Carplay. Now you can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and enjoy your favourite tracks – all on your on-board display.

This remarkable Crossover SUV is also equipped with advanced Rear Park Assist with camera display and steering guidelines, which make parking easier. This vehicle certainly sets itself apart from any other Crossover SUV in its class.


Other important safety features include driver and front passenger airbags, as well as curtain and side-impact airbags.

There is also an Anti-skid Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Downhill Brake Control, Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning.


The all-new Hyundai Kona is available in a variety of funky colours from Acid Yellow to Chalk White.
