2020 Hyundai Kona Blue Lagoon - Hyundai is here! wished to end up being the primary Asian carmaker in Europe in early 2021 and keep its model collection in accordance with this particular ambition. SUVs are thriving and now Korea is participating in trends with the Grand Santa Fe, Santa Fe and Tucson models.
We equally drove gasoline: 3 cylinders with 120 hp and 4 cylinders with 177 hp.
We travel equally alternatives of gasoline, which are prepared for industry launch. For a four-cylinder with 177 hp Hyundai expects about 30 percent share of revenue in Indonesia, though it is definitely an energetically above-average motorbike for this type of cars and drives a forced combination with all-wheel travel and twin clutch sign, the cost is increasing. But apart from that, it suits perfectly with an SUV, which weighs just over 1.4 loads, drives it strongly and, with an audio like a stitching device, usually remains quiet in the background. And also this relates to the twin clutch sign operation function, which turns seven gears in a impressive and precise way - at least so long as that you don't scare Kona on the turning hill road. Here are some paddle shifters on the steering wheel, because by switching to activity function, the gearbox maintains the individual gear longer, but adjusting the apparatus is still too uncommon at the best time. Nevertheless, Hyundai does not present paddles, therefore just the selector handle improvements remain in the manual shift gate.
Kona drives agile through shapes and rises well.
That want arises at all, but also as a result of Kona's overall voice. He feels agile and sensible, may travel with a reasonably pleasant steering feedback that has been never inappropriate on the corner. Powerful knowledge or significant horizontal habits with foreigners with an astonishing a reaction to quick gasoline launch, individuals are more prone to struggle making use of their hips at the entranceway and middle system, due to the seat, unlike a corner offering a small horizontal support. Is the suspension comfort too small in that design? Certainly not, independent of the 18-inch tires installed, Kona harasses its occupants on bad street areas not with irritating lumps or with a powerful suspension steering.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
That does not change, in the event that you change to a weaker three-cylinder version with 120 hp. With him, Kona is just under 150 kilograms light, not just responsible for decrease motor weight, because the little gasoline variant can be channeled with all-wheel travel and twin clutch transmission. Subjectively, additionally it lacks character, even though manufacturer specifications for velocity (12.0 as opposed to 7.9 seconds for 0 to 100 km / h) and the greatest pace (181 as opposed to 205 km / h) speak various languages. Anyway, the three cylinders are always acoustically recognized like that, the drums are pleased and set themselves up from 2000 / moments that are committed to these things, adjusting gears with a six-speed signal does not involve effort. It is a shame that computerized dual clutch or four-wheel travel is not offered by one more price - then probably significantly more than 70 percent will undoubtedly be decided with this engine.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR
Compact SUV celebrates IAA premier 1: 14 min.
Absurd as Kona looks from the outside, the inside is really restrained: dominated by black and really traditional structure. For instance, the digital exhibit behind the steering wheel does not mix in to a big electronic cockpit, but rather shows pace, a tachometer, a gasoline measure and a computer installed as standard. The optional eight-inch touchscreen display is mounted on the dash, so your driver has a great see, however the standpoint is not too limited. The optional black leather chair is comfortable, but attributes a little horizontal help, the steering wheel is properly located thanks to the sleep skin in hand. If you want to have a little more color internally, you are able to order Kona at one more price with ornamental styles red and, calcium or red stitches. Good facts: Wires will also be obtainable in the correct colors. The middle system provides a smart storage area for home tips, smart telephones and such - needless to say that may also be located properly in the inductive running region, presented it has been ordered.
