Hyundai Kona Facelift (2020): New front, N-Line & 48-volt system

The facelift of the Hyundai Kona comes with a new front and a 48-volt system

The Hyundai Kona gets a facelift with a new front, 48-volt system and the sporty N-Line equipment. AUTO BILD has all the information.

D.he Hyundai Kona is getting its first facelift in three years and is growing four centimeters in length. It is available as a combustion, hybrid or all-electric car. Visually, something is happening, especially at the front. The cascade grille gives way to a significantly larger model, which is separated from the lower air intake, which is also larger, by a wide bumper. This bumper merges into the paneling of the wheel arches.

The already narrow LED daytime running lights on the edge of the bonnet narrow into even narrower slots. In the Kona facelift, the headlights are again mounted separately one level lower and have a new interior and a more classic shape. The taillights also have a slightly different signature and their design is adapted. It is particularly noticeable that the turn signal is now under clear glass, which brings a little more calm to the design. The redesigned rear apron is more horizontal and looks flatter.

New online services

In the interior of the Kona facelift, the changes are rather inconspicuous. In order to support the horizontal alignment of the dashboard, the center console now runs underneath. An electronic parking brake takes the place of the handbrake lever. The redesigned ventilation nozzles with narrower aluminum trims look a bit higher quality than their predecessor. If required, heated rear seats and a USB port in the second row provide more comfort.

The top infotainment now also consists of two 10.25-inch screens on the combustion engine, one for the digital speedometer and one on the dashboard. Hyundai has brought the system up to date: Apple CarPlay and Andorid Auto can now also be used wirelessly, the central screen can be split and there are various online services that can also be used via smartphone app. This includes real-time traffic information, information on free parking spaces or the location of the car. The Kona is equipped with analog instruments and a central display as standard, which grows from seven to eight inches with the facelift.

New assistants and N-Line

In addition to new colors and seat covers, there are now a number of new or revised assistance systems. This includes the further development of the active blind spot assistant. Brake intervention makes it difficult to change lanes if the driver overlooks another car. The traffic jam assistant keeps the Kona in the middle of the lane and the previously selected distance from the vehicle in front. The new exit assistant not only warns of vehicles approaching from behind when the rear passengers want to get out, it also locks the doors. For the first time, the Kona is also available in the sporty one N-Line equipment with its own, much more aggressive aprons, paneling in body color and two tailpipes of its own 18-inch rims. The interior is predominantly black and accented with red stitching.

New 48 volt system

The smallest diesel is not used with combustion engines. The offer now starts with the 120 hp one-liter gasoline engine. The three-cylinder can also be equipped with a 48-volt system for the Kona facelift. This is standard on the next-stronger unit, the 1.6-liter diesel with 136 hp. The top model with a 1.6 liter petrol engine is boosted to 198 hp (previously it was 177 hp) and comes with a seven-speed automatic. The two more powerful engines are also available with all-wheel drive. For the drives with a 48-volt system, there is either an automatic or a six-speed gearbox with an electronic clutch, which allows the engine to be decoupled and to sail. The Kona is also available again as a hybrid with 141 hp. There is also a 1.6-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor. The electric version has also been revised.

Market launch and price

The Hyundai Kona will be available from dealers as a combustion engine from the end of 2020, and the hybrid and electric versions are due to start in spring 2021. So far, only the price for the combustion engine is out, which is around 480 euros more expensive and starts at 19,486 euros.
