So, what car? Hyundai Kona electric or Kona hybrid or Kona petrol or more recently mild hybrid? If you are asking, which Hyundai Kona to buy? The Hyundai Kona gives you plenty of choices, there’s a version to suit you:
On the Kona EV front there is a choice of the standard version with a 39 kWh battery, producing 134bhp, or a variant with a 64 kWh battery delivering 201bhp. The full hybrid model employs a 1.6-litre petrol engine and an electric motor for a total output of 139bhp.
Hyundai introduced a new 1.0-litre mild-hybrid powertrain with 48-volt hybrid tech, that sits alongside the full hybrid and the pure-electric versions. The 1.0 T-GDI is a three-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor, producing 118bhp and 172Nm of torque.
SE Connect, Premium and Ultimate trim levels are available throughout the range, with standard equipment including 17-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, cruise control, a 10.25-inch digital instrument display and smartphone connectivity. Customers also have the option of upgrading to the sporty N Line, with more aggressive rear and front styling, 18-inch wheels as standard and branded trim.
Is Hyundai Kona 4 wheel drive? The 1.0 litre comes with a six-speed manual gearbox driving the front wheels. The 1.6 is limited to the higher trim levels and can be ordered with on-demand four-wheel drive, complete with a differential lock and electronic hill-descent control; the 4×4 version comes with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. This all-wheel-drive (AWD) Kona also has a multi-link rear axle, the 1.0’s rear end suspended by a coil-sprung torsion-beam axle.
Performance and drive
The mild-hybrid Kona has a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, the full hybrid has a six-speed DCT auto transmission. The chassis and suspension provide a polished ability to absorb the bumps and jolts from rutted urban roads, even with the 18-inch alloy wheels. The Kona is quiet, and the wind noise is well isolated.
The Kona Electric goes around corners in much the same way as its combustion counterparts, but it is quieter and smoother too.
Equipment levels are good, connectivity is built into the Kona with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ as standard on all trim. There’s also premium audio available from Krell, one of America’s oldest and most respected manufacturers of high-end audio equipment. N Line trim also benefit from an immersive 8-speaker system with an external amplifier and subwoofer.
