A departure from the boring, unimaginative and anonymous styling of most SUV’s rolling through our suburbs, the Kona looks as fresh as a crisp Spring morning. It has the substance to match the fresh style too, including the latest technology in connectivity, entertainment and active safety.
Your Kona can be “Your” Kona more than any other car can be, personalise it just like you do the other things in your life. You don’t just buy the outfit on the mannequin in the window do you? Firstly it’s available in colours that are actually colourful – although it does look great in white or grey too. Just what other colours you ask? Think Pulse Red, Tangerine Comet, Blue Lagoon, Ceramic Blue, Acid Yellow, Dark Knight, and Velvet Dune to name a few. The roof and pillars can also be painted in contrasting colours to the rest of the body giving you a great variation between the body and wheels.
The mix and match colour choices continue on the interior where you can add highlights to a number of areas to match the body colour of your car. Seat stitching and piping, gear stick surround, air vent surrounds? Sure, of course you can have them in that same shade of Pule Red.
Let’s stay on the inside for a moment longer because this is where Hyundai have really worked some magic. Hyundai are claiming class leading interior space – this is in a class including the Mazda CX-3, Toyota C-HR and Honda HR-V. Despite being roughly the same size as the CX-3, the Kona offers considerably more leg room and head room in the rear. The boot space is impressive also, often a falling point in this class, giving more than enough space for all but the very largest of items, but then you can fold the seats flat when that day arrives.
