New crossover arrives with petrol, hybrid and electric powertrains; hybrid starts from £30,025
The pricing and specifications for the petrol and hybrid variants of the new Hyundai Kona have been detailed ahead of the model’s launch later this year.
Priced from £25,725, the cheapest Kona receives a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engine – producing 118bhp and provisional CO2 emissions of 131-150g/km – and the Advance trim level. This brings basics including 17in alloy wheels and height-adjustable front seats plus two curved 12.3in screens – one displaying instrumentation and the other an infotainment touchscreen supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.
N Line trim costs £27,525, which brings sporty styling elements, 18in alloy wheels and a powered tailgate. Inside, it adds a heated steering wheel, ambient lighting and a wireless phone charging pad.
Pay £29,925 and you get an N Line S model, which has Alcantara- and leather-trimmed electrically adjustable seats with heating and ventilation, as well as three-zone climate control and a Bose sound system with seven speakers. It also opens up the option of a more potent 195bhp turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine, costing an extra £1800 and matching the 1.0-litre unit for CO2 emissions.
Ultimate trim is the same price as N Line S and provides more subtle styling, full-leather front seats and a sunroof.
Opting for the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox costs an additional £2000, regardless of trim level.
The Kona’s hybrid powertrain produces 139bhp and 101-117g/km of CO2 – although the upper limit of emissions varies depending on the chosen trim level and falls to 110g/km in Advance models. It costs £30,025 in Advance trim, £31,825 in N Line and £34,225 in N Line S and Ultimate. All hybrid models are equipped with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Pricing for the Hyundai Kona EV has yet to be officially detailed but is expected to start around £33,000 – a slight premium compared with the outgoing model. It will be offered with two powertrains: a Standard model with a 154bhp motor and a 48.4kWh battery, and a Long Range model with a 214bhp motor and 65.4kWh battery.
Each variant’s range and maximum charging rates are expected to be confirmed alongside pricing at a later date.
