Kona Joins the Hyundai Lineup

July 03, 2017

Hyundai Motor has unveiled the latest vehicle in its expanding line-up of stylish SUVs, the Kona compact SUV. With a strong, impactful design and uncompromised individuality, the Kona is designed to appeal to modern customers with active lifestyles.

Joining the growing lineup of Hyundai SUVs, the Kona compliments Tucson, Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport as a B-segment SUV. Available for sale worldwide very soon, Kona offers uncompromised individuality and innovative features. The Kona’s bold, daring image hints at the future design direction of Hyundai and puts forward a unique option for buyers looking for the perfect compact SUV.

“With the Kona, we have created a stylish and highly functional compact SUV, perfectly suited to the needs of customers who pursue challenging, action-filled lifestyles,” said Euisun Chung, Vice Chairman of Hyundai Motor Company. “We aim to set new standards for the compact SUV segment, with appealing design, cutting-edge connectivity and class leading safety features.”

The vehicle’s voluminous, aggressive body styling reinforces Kona’s stand-out design, with emphasis on its well-proportioned, dynamic silhouette. Its low and wide stance complements the car’s stylish appearance, with the long wheel base and short overhangs ensuring sporty, nimble handling behind the wheel, in addition to delivering superior driving stability at highway speeds.

Inside, Kona delivers best-in-class interior space. An optimized underfloor layout provides customers with generous interior space where they will feel the true SUV experience. SUV-level ground clearance and elevated seats make the Kona feel much larger than a compact!

Designers also optimized interior space to maximize luggage storage capabilities, reflecting the requirements of customers with active lifestyles. The split-folding rear seats fold flat, with a two-level loading floor that allows easy access for a bicycle or golf club storage.

The Kona blends exceptional fuel efficiency with a fun urban driving experience, delivering power and performance levels that are not often found in vehicles in its segment!

We are excited to learn more about the Hyundai Kona and can’t wait to have this impressive new SUV arrive on the lot at Richmond Hill Hyundai.
