2020 Hyundai Kona Elite - Hyundai is here! desired to end up being the primary Asian carmaker in Europe in early 2021 and keep their product portfolio in accordance with this ambition. SUVs are flourishing and now Korea is participating in tendencies with the Grand Santa Fe, Santa Fe and Tucson models.
We both drove gasoline: 3 cylinders with 120 horsepower and 4 cylinders with 177 hp.
We push both alternatives of gasoline, which are prepared for industry launch. For a four-cylinder with 177 hp Hyundai expects about 30 percent share of income in Germany, although it can be an energetically above-average motorbike with this school of cars and drives a forced mix with all-wheel push and dual clutch transmission, the price is increasing. But as well as that, it suits completely with an SUV, which weighs just around 1.4 tons, drives it firmly and, with an audio like a stitching device, usually continues quiet in the background. This also applies to the dual clutch transmission function mode, which converts eight things in a impressive and accurate fashion - at the least provided that you do not scare Kona on the turning pile road. Here are some paddle shifters on the controls, since by converting to game mode, the gearbox maintains the average person equipment lengthier, but changing the gear is still too uncommon at the best time. However, Hyundai does perhaps not provide paddles, therefore only the selector lever changes stay in the handbook shift gate.
Kona drives agile through curves and springs well.
That wish arises at all, but in addition due to Kona's overall voice. He thinks agile and realistic, can push with a reasonably friendly steering feedback which was never incorrect on the corner. Powerful knowledge or substantial horizontal behaviors with foreigners with a surprising a reaction to sudden gas discharge, individuals are prone to battle making use of their knees at the doorway and center unit, due to the chair, unlike the trunk supplying a small horizontal support. Is the suspension comfort too small in that design? Certainly not, independent of the 18-inch wheels fitted, Kona harasses their occupants on poor path areas perhaps not with troublesome bumps or with a solid suspension steering.
That doesn't modify, in the event that you move to a weaker three-cylinder version with 120 hp. With him, Kona is only under 150 kilograms light, not just accountable for decrease engine weight, since the tiny gasoline variant is also channeled with all-wheel push and dual clutch transmission. Subjectively, additionally, it lacks character, although factory requirements for speed (12.0 instead of 7.9 seconds for 0 to 100 km / h) and the best rate (181 instead of 205 km / h) talk various languages. Anyway, the three cylinders are always acoustically acknowledged that way, the drums are pleased and collection themselves up from 2000 / minutes who are committed to these things, changing things with a six-speed world doesn't require effort. It is a pity that computerized dual clutch or four-wheel push is not offered by one more price - then probably more than 70 percent will undoubtedly be determined on this engine.
Compact SUV celebrates IAA premier 1: 14 min.
Silly as Kona looks from the outside, the interior is indeed controlled: dominated by black and really main-stream structure. For instance, the digital present behind the controls doesn't merge into a big virtual cockpit, but rather displays rate, a tachometer, a energy gauge and a computer fitted as standard. The elective eight-inch touch screen is mounted on the dashboard, so your driver features a excellent see, however the standpoint is not as limited. The elective black leather chair is relaxed, but contributes only a little horizontal help, the controls is effectively found thanks to the nap skin in hand. If you intend to have a bit more shade inside, you are able to order Kona at one more price with decorative designs red and, calcium or lime stitches. Great details: Cords are also available in the correct colors. The middle unit provides a intelligent closet for home recommendations, intelligent phones and the like - needless to say that may also be stored effectively in the inductive loading area, offered it has been ordered.
