2020 Hyundai Kona Motor Trend - Hyundai is here! wanted to become the major Asian carmaker in Europe in early 2021 and maintain its product portfolio in accordance with this ambition. SUVs are thriving and today Korea is participating in traits with the Great Santa Fe, Santa Fe and Tucson models.
We equally went gasoline: 3 cylinders with 120 horsepower and 4 cylinders with 177 hp.
We drive equally alternatives of gasoline, which are ready for industry launch. For a four-cylinder with 177 hp Hyundai expects about 30 per cent reveal of income in Germany, though it is definitely an energetically above-average motorbike with this class of cars and drives a forced mix with all-wheel drive and double clutch transmission, the purchase price is increasing. But as well as that, it meets completely with an SUV, which weighs just over 1.4 tons, drives it strongly and, with a sound such as for instance a sewing equipment, generally continues quiet in the background. This also applies to the double clutch transmission operation setting, which converts seven items in a impressive and precise way - at the least so long as you never scare Kona on the winding hill road. Below are a few paddle shifters on the controls, because by converting to game setting, the gearbox keeps the person gear lengthier, but changing kit is still also uncommon at the right time. However, Hyundai does maybe not offer paddles, so only the selector handle changes stay in the handbook shift gate.
Kona drives agile through shapes and springs well.
That wish arises at all, but additionally as a result of Kona's overall voice. He thinks agile and realistic, can drive with a reasonably friendly steering feedback which was never incorrect on the corner. Solid knowledge or significant lateral habits with foreigners with an astonishing a reaction to quick gasoline release, individuals are more likely to battle with their joints at the doorway and center console, due to the seat, unlike the rear supplying a small lateral support. Is the suspension comfort also short in that style? In no way, in addition to the 18-inch tires mounted, Kona harasses its occupants on bad road areas maybe not with irritating lumps or with a solid suspension steering.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
That does not modify, if you switch to a weaker three-cylinder edition with 120 hp. With him, Kona is only below 150 kilograms lighter, not merely in charge of lower engine fat, because the tiny gasoline version is also channeled with all-wheel drive and double clutch transmission. Subjectively, additionally it lacks character, although manufacturer requirements for velocity (12.0 in place of 7.9 seconds for 0 to 100 km / h) and the highest speed (181 in place of 205 km / h) speak different languages. Anyhow, the three cylinders are usually acoustically recognized that way, the drums are pleased and set themselves up from 2000 / moments who're committed to these exact things, changing items with a six-speed world does not involve effort. It's a waste that automated double clutch or four-wheel drive isn't offered at yet another cost - then maybe a lot more than 70 per cent is going to be determined on this engine.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR
Compact SUV celebrates IAA premier 1: 14 min.
Absurd as Kona looks from the outside, the inside is so restrained: dominated by black and very mainstream structure. For example, the digital display behind the controls doesn't merge right into a big electronic cockpit, but rather exhibits speed, a tachometer, a gasoline measure and a pc mounted as standard. The recommended eight-inch touch screen is attached to the dashboard, so that the driver includes a great see, but the point of view is not too limited. The recommended black leather chair is relaxed, but contributes a little lateral help, the controls is well found because of the nap epidermis in hand. If you wish to have a little more shade inside, you are able to order Kona at yet another cost with decorative prints and red, calcium or red stitches. Excellent facts: Cables may also be obtainable in the appropriate colors. The center console provides a clever closet for house keys, clever phones and such - obviously that can be kept well in the inductive packing place, provided it has been ordered.
