2018 Hyundai Kona SUV Review
With the first generation of Tucson, Hyundai was at the time as the chickens in the segment of compact SUVs. In fact, the Korean brand was one of the founders of this class. However, with the emergence of the even smaller SUV’s in the class, Hyundai has long been looking at the cat from the tree. But now we can meet the Kona, who wants to conquer our hearts with a cheerful design. He really radiates that he wants to kick in LOL. The double headlights jump directly into the eye, like the tough-looking black arch edges, which run optically in the bumpers. But how striking its design also is, the practical ease of use is not forgotten. Thanks to the handy size, you can also take a good look at the city and in the design of the interior, it is clear that everything has been done to provide as much functionality as possible.
2018 Hyundai Kona MPG Specs
Everyone finds his way quickly in the 2018 Hyundai Kona SUV, which is with a length of 4.17 meters, a width of 1.80 meters and a height of 1.55 meters in size occupies a spot between the Renault Captur and the Opel cross land X. The front seats support the body well and there is more space than you expect on the basis of the compact exterior sizes. Small blemish on his blazon: The head space at the front is on the right side. However, there is nothing to be noticed on the luggage compartment, because it has a content of 361 to 1,143 liters.
2018 Hyundai Kona SUV Fist Impression
a platform brother of the Kia Stonic – appears at the start with two turbo Benzinemotoren with direct injection. The 1.0-liter three-cylinder with 120 HP is coupled with a manual zesbak and has front wheel drive, while the 1.6-liter is 177 hp always dispenses to all four wheels via a seven automatic with double clutch. With this latter variant, we make our first meters. The four-cylinder turbo engine has little trouble with the 1.4 tons of heavy Kona. He makes a vivid impression during the accelerate and sounds like he’s like. The machine plays the game enthusiastically and disables rap, although that doesn’t always go smoothly. The mount is softer adjusted than expected, but our test copy is a North American implementation. This rolls out smoothly and even slightly heaving over cross ridges and other blemishes. Thanks to the very senseless control, the Kona does not feel as handy as expected in spite of its compact size. This helps the drive button, which allows you to adjust control and voice behavior through the Comfort and Sports modes, not too much. The European version will feel agiler and light foot, so the engineers of the brand promise us. In the autumn we know more because then the Kona appears in the Dutch showrooms.
Next spring a new engine, a 1.6-litre diesel with 115 hp, which is coupled with a manual zesbak; This version has front wheel drive. From this diesel engine comes also a variant with 136 HP available, with Automat and four wheel drive. Next year’s summer the electro-Kona, which according to the Korean brand, is going to get a 390-kilometre action radius. The rap-expanding segment of small SUVs is again a special creation richer. The 2018 Hyundai Kona SUV is a true eye catcher with its coupé-like shape and plastic protection parts all around. If the Koreans know how to adapt the driving habits to the European taste and give their new, attractive price cards, the brand is likely to have a success number. In the compact SUV segment, pronounced cars are very much in the taste, just look at the particularly well-selling Toyota C-HR.
