The Hyundai Kona arrived in Australia near the end of 2017, as a challenger to popular small SUVs such as Mazda's CX-3. At a compact 4.2-metres long, it's very much a light car with an elevated ride height, and stands out from the crowd with bold sporty styling.
The Kona's cabin is a little more austere but has the latest phone mirroring tech, and while it's hardly a family car it'll happily carry two kids in the back. The Hyundai Kona's boot is a respectable 360 litres, about the same as a VW Golf.
There are two drivetrains to choose from: a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine with six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, or a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol matched to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive. There's also a long-range Electric version with a 64kWh battery.
The latter is actually quite a punchy little thing, with credentials heightened by independent rear suspension and calibration tested in Australia, for local conditions.
The Hyundai Kona is built in Korea and is then shipped to Australia.
