Advanced safety & driving assistance
The new Hyundai Kona has been equipped with a range of safety and driving assist features for added peace of mind.
Smart Cruise Control (SCC) has been upgraded to include the stop and go function. Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), available in combination with the DCT, has been enhanced too, engaging the vehicle's differential brakes to prevent a collision if another vehicle is detected near the rear corner (blind spot) and the driver attempts to change lanes.
One feature new to this model is Leading Vehicle Departure Alert (LVDA), which alerts the driver if they do not react fast enough when the vehicle ahead of them starts moving. Another is Lane Following Assist (LFA), which automatically adjusts steering to assist the driver to keep in the centre of the lane.
Another upgraded feature is Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with pedestrian and new, optional cyclist detection. The optional FCA uses a sensor in addition to a camera to better detect potential collisions. This increases the detection range and the types of targets, which can be detected, and ensures the system works even in bad weather conditions. If the system senses a potential collision and the driver fails to react in time, it automatically applies the brakes. As another enhancement, FCA now comes as standard (camera based), including pedestrian detection-
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA), also a first for the new Kona with the DCT, works to avoid a collision when backing up by applying the brakes if another vehicle is detected. This is an upgrade from the previously-available Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, which only provided a warning.

Another safety feature primarily intended for the protection of children, Safe Exit Warning (SEW) is intended to prevent passengers from exiting the vehicle if it is not yet safe to do so.

Comfort & Roominess
A number of new convenience features allow for a more comfortable ride - now, even for backseat passengers. These include second row heated seats and a second-row USB port. The new Kona with manual seats has also been improved. Passengers in the front row can also now adjust their seat height for an optimised seating position while they ride.
New powertrain options for both sporty and eco-conscious consumers
The powertrain line-up for the new Kona reaches new heights in terms of performance and sustainability. At the top of the line-up is an enhanced 1.6-litre T-GDI Smartstream engine with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, which brings 198 PS to the table. This powerful, sporty powertrain is available in both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive variations.
For increased fuel efficiency, the new Kona will be equipped with 48-volt mild hybrid technology. This technology is applied to the 1.6-litre Smartstream diesel engine with 136 PS as standard and is available with a seven-speed DCT (7DCT) or six-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission (6iMT), as well as optional four-wheel drive. The 1.0-litre T-GDI Smartstream petrol engine with 120 PS can also be equipped with 48-volt mild hybrid technology and 6iMT as an option.
First seen in the new i30 and the all-new i20, the iMT's clutch operates purely electronically instead of a mechanical linkage. The iMT decouples the engine from the transmission after the driver releases the accelerator, saving fuel as the engine can switch off and the car enters into coasting mode. The engine restarts in the same gear as soon as the driver presses either the brake or the accelerator pedals, thanks to the power provided by the Mild Hybrid Starter Generator.

When chosen without mild hybrid technology, the 1.0-litre T-GDI Smartstream engine can be combined with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission.
Kona Hybrid system
The new Hyundai Kona is also available as a hybrid option, which was added to the Kona line-up in 2019. This powertrain features a 1.6-litre GDI engine and electric motor with a combined output of 141 PS, paired with a 6-speed dual clutch transmission and with two-wheel drive. The 32kW electric motor draws its energy from a 1.56 kWh lithium polymer battery.
Ride and handling enhancements for more comfort
The new Hyundai Kona has been subject to a series of tuning updates for a smoother ride compared to its predecessor. The suspension has been retuned in order to improve driving comfort, without degrading the Kona's sporty character. Next to springs and dampers, the stabilizer bars were modified for better ride comfort and isolation. The rear bump stop was also modified, bringing benefits for primary ride and lateral body control.
The new Hyundai Kona also comes with improved tires on all sizes of wheels, resulting in less rolling resistance and more efficient driving. The 18-inch tires have been upgraded from Conti Sport Contact 5 to Conti Premium Contact 6 to improve the ride comfort attribute of the vehicle. This also means drivers can expect better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions while at the same time enjoying less road noise than before. This creates an excellent balance between eco-friendly driving and sportiness. In addition, several parts of the vehicle have been renewed to improve Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH), further increasing the comfort inside the cabin.
The steering was fine-tuned to match the new suspension character as well as to fit the new tires. The new Kona now shows a comfortable, yet connected steering behaviour. Steering efforts are also more linear and well-balanced across the complete speed range.
This set up is applied to the whole Kona range, including the Kona N Line. The only exception is the Kona N Line paired with the 1.6 T-GDI powertrain and four-wheel drive, which received a specific steering tuning to match the character of the vehicle.
The all-new Hyundai Kona N Line and new Kona will arrive to European showrooms towards the end of the year, while the new Kona Hybrid will follow beginning of 2021.
