Hyundai has unveiled new Kona family at New York Auto Show. Kona is positioned as a small SUV and has unveiled a full range of models at New York Auto Show, including a regular version, N-Line and an all-electric version. . In past, Hyundai Kona has always featured avant-garde design, and it was also an earlier batch of split-headlight models, but now new model is more radical than before.
The new Hyundai Kona retains iconic split headlight design, but this time change is more obvious. Penetrating daytime running lights add a sense of future, while real headlights are placed on fenders below. After such processing, China Open has a simple appearance, at first glance, you will most likely notice only a penetrating light bar and a front panel similar to closed China Open.
The bumper is shaped like a huge air intake, but this air intake is not a design with real functions, it only has a decorative effect. The real air intakes are on undersides, and size is not too big.
Personally, I feel that handling of N-Line model is much better. Firstly, bumper has a completely different design, and a sportier diamond design is used inside. The color scheme is also on top. - Cool piano paint, and overall look is more reasonable.
The design of purely electric version's front end is much more pleasing to eye, while entire front end is more concise, location of original air intake grille has been replaced with pinpoint detailing for a more futuristic look. The front panel also has an asymmetrical charging port, which is very cyberpunk. If you like this style of future game animation, then Kona's pure electric front panel is very suitable.
On side, there aren't a lot of design flair, which is standard proportions of a small SUV's body, and not too many frilly detailing, and there won't be things like hidden door handles. The wheel brows use wilder black plastic and floor plate also uses same material to create a contrast with the body.
The pure electric version is basically same as regular version, it also does not have ugly black plastic bezel, and design is same color as body, more concise, feeling of future is also quite strong.
The design of rear is same as front of car, idea of the design is same as front of car, and LED light strip is same as main body of rear light. The design of this part is more radical, and whole taillight is on fender, which is more retro-styled.
The biggest change to N-Line lies in additional accessories, such as aforementioned rear spoiler and diffuser in lower part of car, as well as a single-sided, dual-exit exhaust pipe with a very performing taste.
This part of pure electric version is basically same as regular version. Except for some color differences, there is not much difference between two, which is in line with positioning of model itself.
The interior has a good texture, which strikes a good balance between luxury and technology. The dual screen design is very common in modern models, but with brushed aluminum texture panel, texture has been greatly improved. improvement.
There will be no flashy design here, number of physical buttons is kept at a reasonable level, and there will not be too many anti-human designs in everyday use.
In terms of power, fuel version of Kona is equipped with 1.6 t and 2.0 liter engines, with a maximum power of 195 and 147 hp. respectively, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and a CVT. Some models also provide all-wheel drive. The purely electric version has no published power figures and provides two ranges: 317 km and 418 km.
Hyundai Kona has a unique design style. Naturally, such a design cannot satisfy everyone. From a personal point of view, design of N-Line model and purely electric version are still acceptable, in keeping with style of model itself. As for regular version, design is a bit beyond praise. In terms of design and equipment, this model basically says goodbye to domestic market, especially pure electric model, which has no clear advantages in terms of battery life. With exception of high-performance N series, current personalized models basically do not have a place to survive. There are more price for saying that sword is tilted.
