Hyundai Kona compared with top-selling European B-SUVs.

The Hyundai Kona has arrived in South Korea and will go on sale in Europe and USA this year. Here’s how it competes with the Renault Captur, Peugeot 2008 and Opel/Vauxhall Mokka X – Europe’s top-selling B-SUVs (Q1 2017).

The Hyundai Kona is the widest model in its segment, and its length and wheelbase are only second to the Opel/Vauxhall Mokka X and Renault Captur respectively. It has the lowest height in its class. The Hyundai Kona, although mentioned with four engines above, will sell only with three engines in the UK as Hyundai will not offer the 2.0-litre petrol engine there.

Peugeot offers the most number of options to the customers in its 2008 in that aspect, but none as powerful as the Hyundai Kona’s 1.6-litre T-GDI mill. Like the engine, the Hyundai Kona’s gearbox options are also of the least number compared to its rivals – 6-speed manual and 7-speed DCT. The 6-speed automatic transmission is for other markets.

LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, LED tail light, 4.2-inch colour MID, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite navigation with 3D maps, rear-view camera and DAB digital radio, (Qi) wireless charging (segment first) and Krell sound system with eight speakers and an amplifier are the equipment highlights of the Hyundai Kona.

Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Alert, Static Bending Light and Smart High Beam are the key safety features of the sub-compact SUV. Hyundai has also announced that the Kona would have a best-in-class passive safety.
