It also provides both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, enabling users to connect their devices to deliver and control music or telephone functions on-screen. Also included is a free seven-year subscription to LIVE services offering updated information in real time about weather, traffic and speed cameras (where legally allowed), plus online searches for points of interest. The navigation system also features 3D maps and Hyundai Motor’s unique Lifetime MapcareTM** with free annual map and software updates included. To enhance vehicle operation the system includes a rear view camera with dynamic guidelines.

Wireless inductive charging

To ensure that occupants’ phones are always charged, the Kona also provides a wireless inductive charging pad (Qi standard) for mobile phones. The phone’s charging status is visualised with a small indicator lamp above. To ensure the phone will not be forgotten inside the car, the central display in the instrument cluster will show a reminder when switching off the car.

For further connection of your devices the Kona comes standard with USB port and AUX jack.

Head-up display with class-leading luminance

For the first time in a Hyundai, the Kona’s new combiner head-up display (HUD) projects relevant driving information directly to the driver’s line of sight . This allows faster processing of information while keeping attention on the road ahead.

With an projected image size of eight-inch at two meter distance and class-leading luminance of more than 10,000 candela per square metre, the new HUD guarantees best visibility in different light conditions. The HUD can be adjusted in angle and height to ensure optimum visibility for individual needs. Once activated via the button beside the steering wheel, the combiner deploys vertically and disappears into the dashboard when not in use. While driving, the HUD supports save driving by displaying information such as speed, navigation commands and the fuel level as well as safety-related warnings from assistance systems such as the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Blind-Spot Collision Warning. Information about the audio mode and radio are also projected.

High-end sound system by Krell

Today’s customers like to listen to their favourite soundtrack in their car, for this reason the Kona offers a high-end, premium sound system by audio manufacturer Krell featuring eight speakers including two 20 mm tweeters, four 160 mm woofer speakers, one 100 mm center speaker and a 200 mm subwoofer speaker. The eight-channel amplifier delivers 45 Watt per channel to maximise the audio experience inside the car.

Hyundai SmartSense: Highest level of active safety

The All-New Kona features the latest Hyundai SmartSense active safety and driving assistance features, to comply with the highest European safety standards: Forward Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with pedestrian detection, Lane Keep Assist (standard), High Beam Assist with Static Low Beam Assist, Driver Attention Warning (standard), Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with pedestrian detection

The All-New Kona is fitted with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with pedestrian detection, an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations, braking autonomously if required. Using front radar and camera sensors, FCA operates in three stages. Initially warning the driver visually and acoustically, it controls the brake according to the collision danger stage, and applies maximum braking force to avoid a collision or minimise damage when a collision is unavoidable. The system is activated when a vehicle or pedestrian is sensed in front of the car, operating at speeds of 8 km/h or above.

Lane Keep Assist (LKA) (standard)

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) alerts the driver in unsafe movements at over 60 km/h by sensing the car’s position. It sounds an alarm before the car moves over white, grey and blue lines as well as Bott’s dots on the road, and warns the driver acoustically and visually before inducing corrective steering to guide the driver back to a safe position.

Full LED Headlamps with High Beam Assist (HBA) and Static Low Beam Assist (LBA-S)

The All-New Kona’s headlamps are available with state-of-the-art LED technology, pairing daylight-like illumination with a long lifetime and significantly lower energy consumption than halogen lights. When switched to automatic mode, High Beam Assist (HBA) detects both oncoming vehicles and vehicles in the same lane ahead at night, and changes to low-beam as appropriate, reducing blinding effects on other drivers. Whenever there are no vehicles detected, the system automatically reactivates the high beams. The static Low Beam Assist (LBA-S) turns addional lamps on and off based on the vehicle speed and steering angle.

Driver Attention Warning (DAW) (standard)

Driver Attention Warning (DAW) raises safety and convenience to an entirely new level by continuously monitoring and analyzing driving patterns through data inputs such as the steering angle, steering torque and vehicle position in the traffic lane. When a pattern of fatigue/distraction is identified, DAW gets the driver’s attention with an audible alert and pop-up message suggesting a break. The system works between 60 and 180 km/h.

Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)

Also using radar, the Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) monitors the rear corners and, if another vehicle is detected, a visual alert appears on the exterior mirrors. If the driver then activates the indicators, an audible signal is emitted. This also applies to lane change situations in which a vehicle is detected.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW)

Using the rear corner radar, the Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) reduces the risk of collision with approaching traffic when reversing out of narrow areas with low visibility. Using radar to scan a 180-degree area behind the vehicle for approaching cross-traffic, RCCW alerts the driver visually and audibly.

Highest Passive Safety

The All-New Kona benefits from superior rigidity through the application of high strength steel, high impact energy absorption and minimised distortion in order to protect passengers in the event of a collision.

Thanks to an enlarged area for the appliance of hot stamping and a ring-shaped cabin shell structure with ultra-high-strength steel, the safety zone has been enlarged for top crashworthiness. The multiload-pass structure of the cabin disperses energy in the event of a collision in various directions and reduces the impact.

Around the interior of the Kona a total of six airbags are installed (two front airbags, two side airbags and two curtain airbags from first to second row protecting both driver and passengers).

* Based on NEDC Test Cycle. Fuel Consumption and emission values vary depending on tyre size and transmission type.

**Lifetime MapCare™ is the commercial term for Hyundai’s subscription to the MapCare™ programme with which annual map updates are assured for the eligible Hyundai vehicles for a minimum period of ten years after the model’s end of production.
