- Hyundai is answering European customers’ demands for more SUV-bodied eco-mobility models.

Hyundai introduced all-new Hyundai Kona hybrid to European customers. In addition to its design, it offers an efficient full hybrid powertrain and features a range of technology enhancements including advanced Bluelink connectivity features, SmartSense active safety and driving assistance systems, as well as state-of-the-art infotainment features.
The All-New Kona Hybrid features Bluelink, a connected vehicle system which uses embedded telematics to allow drivers to remote lock or unlock their vehicle via a smartphone app.
The 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 in six languages. The screen can be customized providing two home screen versions and the ability to edit displayed widgets and icons.
With the standard infotainment system, customers can choose to opt for the benefit of Display Audio to mirror their smartphone’s content onto the 7-inch display via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. In addition to this, the All-New Kona Hybrid arrives with Hyundai LIVE Services available when customers choose navigation. Drivers receive a five-year free subscription for this feature, which offers up-to-the-minute information about weather, traffic, speed camera warning (where legally allowed), nearest fuel stations with location and pricing information, on- and off-street parking, live nearby-dealer information and live POI search.
A 4.2-inch cluster screen highlights dedicated HEV-specific graphics for customers. The connectivity offer is rounded off by an optional combiner type head-up display, projecting relevant driving information directly to the driver’s line of sight. This allows for the faster processing of information while keeping attention on the road ahead.
To ensure that occupants’ phones are always charged, the All-New Kona Hybrid also provides an optional wireless inductive charging pad (Qi standard) for mobile phones.
The All-New Kona Hybrid will be available to customers from August 2019.
