2020 Hyundai Kona Essential - Hyundai is here! wanted to end up being the primary Asian carmaker in Europe in early 2021 and keep their product profile relating with this specific ambition. SUVs are thriving and now Korea is participating in tendencies with the Fantastic Santa Fe, Santa Fe and Tucson models.
We equally went gasoline: 3 cylinders with 120 horsepower and 4 cylinders with 177 hp.
We get equally variants 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 school of cars and pushes a required combination with all-wheel get and twin clutch transmission, the cost is increasing. But after that, it matches completely with an SUV, which weighs just around 1.4 loads, pushes it firmly and, with a sound just like a sewing device, usually keeps calm in the background. This relates to the twin clutch transmission operation method, which turns seven things in a impressive and appropriate fashion - at the least provided that you never scare Kona on the rotating pile road. Below are a few paddle shifters on the controls, since by changing to game method, the gearbox keeps the individual gear longer, but changing kit continues to be too unusual at the best time. Nevertheless, Hyundai does not offer paddles, therefore only the selector handle changes stay in the information shift gate.
Kona drives agile through shapes and springs well.
That need arises at all, but in addition as a result of Kona's overall voice. He thinks agile and practical, can get with a fairly friendly steering feedback which was never wrong on the corner. Strong knowledge or substantial horizontal traits with foreigners with an astonishing reaction to unexpected gas release, drivers are more likely to struggle with their joints at the doorway and center unit, because of the chair, unlike the trunk offering a little horizontal support. May be the suspension comfort too short in this design? Certainly not, in addition to the 18-inch wheels mounted, Kona harasses their occupants on bad path surfaces not with annoying bumps or with a solid suspension steering.
That does not change, in the event that you move to a weaker three-cylinder edition with 120 hp. With him, Kona is only below 150 kilograms lighter, not merely responsible for lower engine weight, since the small gasoline plan is also channeled with all-wheel get and twin clutch transmission. Subjectively, it also lacks personality, even though factory specifications for velocity (12.0 as opposed to 7.9 moments for 0 to 100 km / h) and the greatest speed (181 as opposed to 205 km / h) talk various languages. Anyhow, the three cylinders are always acoustically acknowledged like that, the drums are happy and set themselves up from 2000 / moments that are committed to these things, changing things with a six-speed enterprise does not require effort. It's a shame that automated double clutch or four-wheel get is not offered at an additional price - then probably a lot more than 70 % will undoubtedly be decided with this engine.
Compact SUV celebrates IAA premier 1: 14 min.
Silly as Kona looks from the exterior, the inner is so controlled: dominated by dark and really main-stream structure. For instance, the electronic display behind the controls does not combine in to a big virtual cockpit, but rather exhibits speed, a tachometer, a gasoline measure and some type of computer mounted as standard. The elective eight-inch touchscreen is attached with the dashboard, so the driver has a excellent view, however the point of view is not as limited. The elective dark leather chair is comfortable, but attributes only a little horizontal help, the controls is properly situated as a result of the sleep epidermis in hand. If you intend to have a tad bit more shade internally, you can order Kona at an additional price with ornamental designs and red, calcium or fruit stitches. Excellent details: Wires may also be obtainable in the appropriate colors. The guts unit supplies a wise storage area for house tips, wise devices and the like - obviously this can also be saved properly in the inductive filling place, provided it has been ordered.
