The Company Car and Van Awards have named the Hyundai KONA ‘Medium Car of the Year’ with the second-generation offering one of the most comprehensive product packages in the B-SUV segment, including the widest range of powertrains. The All-new KONA is now 4,350 mm in length, making it 145 mm longer than the earlier generation launched in 2017. Its width is at 1,825 mm, (25 mm wider) and the height is 1,585 mm (20 mm taller).
One reason the KONA received praise thanks to its broad spectrum of powertrain choices, ranging from petrol to fully electric. Other strong qualities of the KONA related to its build quality and technology, with the second generation now including dual 12.3-inch panoramic display screens, full Over-the-Air (OTA) updates and Connected Car Navigation Cockpit (ccNC) which will also be able to support future Feature on Demand applications. Also fitted as standard across the all-new KONA range is Bluetooth, DAB radio, LIVE services, MapCare, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, steering wheel controls and front and rear USB C charging points.
Andrew Walker, Company Car and Van Editor, testifies the KONA’s appeal:
“For company car drivers and fleet managers alike, KONA is available as pure ICE as well as EV and hybrid, so it's a car that works for the way you drive. All models feature a top-class cabin with plenty of space and they're fitted with up-to-date tech and safety features. Furthermore, the overall build quality puts others to shame. Hyundai are on a roll at the moment & the latest KONA only enhances that.”
In addition to ‘Medium Car of the Year’, the KONA has been named Auto Express’ ‘Car of the Year’, ‘Best Company Car’ and ‘Best Small SUV.’ Carbuyer also chose All-new KONA as its ‘Best Small Family Car.’
