The second generation Hyundai Kona is expected to arrive in 2023 or as early as late 2022, but already in the early days of 2022 we’ve seen many small SUVs being publicly tested with both interior and exterior options. The interior of the car has noticed noticeable changes.
First off, the cabin features a significantly upgraded cockpit area that is clearly inspired by Ioniq 5 – Electric SUV has just entered the market in Vietnam. The most obvious similarities can be attributed to the steering wheel and digital dashboard, combined with the central touchscreen into a single block.
A little below you can see a decorative metal panel and slim air conditioning vents, followed by a system of knobs for adjusting the infotainment system and a volume control and 3 more knobs for the climate control.
The exterior of the new Hyundai Kona, as we already know, continues to use grouped front lights, the horizontal line is gradually raised when reversing, the ceiling is sloped or the wheel arch is angled, a new factor to consider. This time it’s the rear light interface with vertical turn signals. The size of the 2nd generation Hyundai Kona will be larger than the current one.
The 2023 Hyundai Kona’s powertrain options promise to include at least a 1.6-liter hybrid version like the Kia Niro for a reference output of 139 hp and 264 Nm of torque. This version of the Kia SUV has a fuel consumption of 4.44 liters per 100 km.
