Hyundai expands Kona range with new hybrid

Hyundai has added a hybrid powertrain to the Kona, providing lower emissions and better performance.

Using the 1.6 GDI petrol engine, the hybrid adds an electric motor and battery to provide zero-emission capability at low speed.

The powertrain provides a maximum power of 141PS and 265Nm of torque, with CO2 emissions from 90g/km.

Average fuel consumption of up to 72mpg is expected.

The Kona Hybrid features Blue Link, a connected vehicle system which uses embedded telematics to allow drivers to remote lock or unlock their vehicle via a smartphone app.

An optional Audio Video Navigation system (AVN) displays a wide variety of useful information across its 10.25-inch split touch-screen, and features Cloud-based voice recognition.

The standard connectivity system uses a seven-inch display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Hyundai Live Services are available providing information about weather, traffic, speed cameras, fuel stations parking and live POI search.

Prices and specifications are yet to be confirmed but the Kona Hybrid will be available to customers from August 2019.
