2020 Hyundai Kona Active - Hyundai is here! desired to become the leading Asian carmaker in Europe in early 2021 and maintain its model collection in respect with this particular ambition. SUVs are thriving and today Korea is participating in trends with the Grand Santa Fe, Santa Fe and Tucson models.
We equally went gasoline: 3 cylinders with 120 hp and 4 cylinders with 177 hp.
We drive equally variations of gasoline, which are ready for market launch. For a four-cylinder with 177 hp Hyundai expects about 30 % share of revenue in Germany, although it is definitely an energetically above-average motorbike for this type of vehicles and pushes a forced combination with all-wheel drive and twin clutch indication, the price is increasing. But after that, it fits perfectly with an SUV, which weighs only around 1.4 loads, pushes it strongly and, with an audio such as for instance a stitching unit, often continues calm in the background. This pertains to the twin clutch indication function mode, which turns eight items in a impressive and exact manner - at the very least provided that that you don't scare Kona on the twisting pile road. Here are some paddle shifters on the steering wheel, because by switching to game mode, the gearbox keeps the individual equipment longer, but adjusting the gear continues to be also unusual at the proper time. However, Hyundai does maybe not offer paddles, therefore only the selector lever changes stay in the handbook shift gate.
Kona drives agile through shapes and rises well.
That want arises at all, but in addition due to Kona's overall voice. He thinks agile and practical, can drive with a fairly pleasant steering feedback that has been never improper on the corner. Powerful understanding or substantial lateral habits with foreigners with an astonishing reaction to unexpected fuel discharge, drivers are prone to struggle making use of their joints at the doorway and middle system, because of the chair, unlike the trunk offering a small lateral support. May be the suspension ease also small in this style? Certainly not, apart from the 18-inch wheels fitted, Kona harasses its occupants on poor road areas maybe not with irritating bumps or with a solid suspension steering.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
That doesn't modify, if you move to a weaker three-cylinder edition with 120 hp. With him, Kona is only under 150 kilograms lighter, not just accountable for lower motor fat, because the small gasoline variant is also channeled with all-wheel drive and twin clutch transmission. Subjectively, in addition, it lacks nature, although factory requirements for velocity (12.0 instead of 7.9 moments for 0 to 100 km / h) and the highest speed (181 instead of 205 km / h) talk different languages. Anyhow, the three cylinders are always acoustically acknowledged like that, the drums are happy and collection themselves up from 2000 / minutes that are devoted to these specific things, adjusting items with a six-speed enterprise doesn't need effort. It is a shame that automatic dual clutch or four-wheel drive isn't available at one more price - then probably a lot more than 70 % will soon be determined with this engine.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR
Compact SUV celebrates IAA premier 1: 14 min.
Silly as Kona looks from the outside, the inner is indeed controlled: dominated by black and very conventional structure. As an example, the electronic exhibit behind the steering wheel doesn't blend in to a big virtual cockpit, but instead shows speed, a tachometer, a energy measure and a pc fitted as standard. The optional eight-inch touchscreen is attached with the dashboard, so the driver has a great view, however the viewpoint is not too limited. The optional black leather chair is relaxed, but attributes a little lateral support, the steering wheel is well located as a result of the nap epidermis in hand. If you intend to have a tad bit more color internally, you can order Kona at one more price with decorative designs and red, calcium or lemon stitches. Good facts: Cables are also for sale in the appropriate colors. The middle system supplies a clever storage space for house recommendations, clever telephones and the like - needless to say this may also be stored well in the inductive launching area, presented it has been ordered.
