Hyundai Kona SUV – Decidedly Different!
Edgier than a car and cooler than any Crossover, this is the all new, always vibrant Hyundai Kona SUV! Now is your chance to discover a vehicle that dares you to be different and exudes confidence and fun by the bucketload. In fact, this SUV is so packed full of personality that it has to be experienced to be believed. From its vibrant colours and premium styling to its next-generation safety features and advanced convenience technology – this is an SUV that does not just break the mould, it redefines it entirely!
Slightly smaller in size than the Creta, but with a BIG presence that makes people sit up and notice, the Hyundai Kona base model offers futuristic exterior stylings that start with its lit-eyed headlamps and end with its ever so distinctive rear-end. Inbetween is a body shape that is unlike anything Hyundai has done before, and this is undoubtedly one of the Kona’s most distinctive features as its sleek roof accentuates the trendy party vibe that is very much part of the DNA of this exciting Hyundai Kona SUV.
Fun to drive, safe to be in! This is the future of Hyundai, so book a test drive of the Kona base model today and take your driving experience to the next level.
“The Kona offers more visual appeal than the brand’s (Hyundai’s) other cars, but delivers sensible competence across the board”
“The Kona has edgy, futuristic styling that breaks the normal SUV mould. Its slit-eyed headlamps and tail lights are distinctly Alfa-esque in nature…”
“Daring, vibrant, and modern, the Hyundai Kona is a remarkable SUV. From its safety features to its comfortable interior, every aspect of this vehicle is designed to get you to your destination relaxed and ready to face the day ahead.”
Hyundai Kona Engine Specs
Built to provide the perfect blend of performance and economy, both of the engines available for the Hyundai Krona derivatives released in South Africa are as reliable as ever.

Both of these model variants will be front-wheel drive only and include a 6-speed manual transmission in the 1.0-litre TGDI and a 6-speed automatic transmission in the 2.0-litre MPI.
The impressive Hyundai Krona Engine Specs are as follows:

Hyundai Kona South African Review
We were lucky enough to be one of the first Hyundai Dealerships to receive the base/ top model Kona, and we decided to put it to the test. Of course we are avowed Hyundai fans, but that does not take away from the fact that anybody who sets eyes on the Kona will be taken in by its futuristic style. In fact, we’d even go as far as saying that we’ve never seen something quite like it in South Africa before. Although SUV’s are well-known for their personality, the New Hyundai Kona takes this to another level. Ok, so now that we’ve sung its praises in general let’s get down to the nitty gritty.
The Kona is a Looker!
If you don’t want to be the centre of attention then this is the wrong vehicle for you! Everywhere we went people stopped to stare at the funky good looks and outstanding stylings that make up the Kona’s exterior looks. The attention to detail of the vehicle’s exterior by designer Luc Donckerwolke is out of this world and we don’t think we’ve ever seen anything like it in a Hyundai or any other vehicle in South Africa. But for all of this, the Kona is still an SUV, so these good looks are underlined by a sporty yet slightly eccentric aggressiveness that would look as good in Camps bay as it does in Durbanville. This is a middle-class car with upper-class aspirations and this good looking vehicle is not afraid to show it.
Comfort and Convenience Comes Standard!
Many vehicles profess to offer exceptional levels of comfort and convenience, but with the features found in the base and top model Kona, Hyundai has most certainly put its money where its mouth is. This is an SUV that talks the talk and walks the walk, as this jaw-dropping list of features will testify to:
- Aux / iPod / USB Connection
- 4 Speakers and 2 Tweeters
- Ambient Temperature Display
- Electric Side Mirrors
- Electric Windows
- Sunglass Holder
- Driver and Passenger Vanity Mirror
- Cruise Control
- Rear View Camera & RPDC Park Assist
- Roof Rails
So How Does it Handle?
The Kona is a dream to drive both in the city and on the open road. It is comfortable as a family car and fun as a runaround vehicle. It is a rare “best of both worlds” SUV thanks to its big interior space but surprisingly compact size. It offers decent body control while also providing a firm ride and makes a good cruising vehicle as well as an exceptionally competent city car that is ready to take on the urban jungle.
