Recent Updates of Kona

Hyundai offers the Kona in the Philippines in a single 2.0 GLS 6A/T variant, which is priced at Php 1.19 million. The South Korean grabs the eyeballs thanks to its attractive design language alongside the two-tier headlamp setup, cascading grille, black body cladding all-round, and large alloy wheels. On the inside, the Hyundai Kona gets a multifunction steering wheel, non-touchscreen infotainment system, and limited legroom & headroom due to its short wheelbase and low roofline. The Philippine-spec Kona is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine making 149 PS and 185 Nm. A 6-speed regular torque converter sends the power to the front wheels. The Hyundai Kona takes on the Suzuki Vitara, Ford Ecosport, Nissan Juke, Mazda CX-3, and others.

Given the immense rise of compact sub-four meter SUVs and crossovers in recent times, Hyundai also decided to give the segment a shot. One of the new products Hyundai has come up in recent times is the Kona that boasts of a fresh design language which gives a preview of what Hyundai future cars would be like. For the Philippines market, the Hyundai Kona is available in only one GLS variant with a single engine and transmission option on offer. On offer is a 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Interior & Features

When it comes to the interior, the Hyundai Kona, again, is a far departure from the cascading theme which we are used to seeing in the Hyundai cars from the recent past. The overall design of the interior is as extrovert and distinctive as the car on the outside.

A three-spoke steering wheel is an all-new unit, with larger-than-usual buttons for audio, cruise control, and Bluetooth. The centre console has a lovely vertical layout and features a design very similar to that seen in Ford Ecosport. The music system lays atop of the centre console with horizontal vents for AC following. Below the AC vents are buttons for auto climate control that look minimalist yet classy. While the center console lacks a touchscreen unit which is a compulsory norm in a car of this class, the color coding touches around AC vents and gear lever raise the funky quotient of the car.

In terms of features, the Kona comes equipped with some essentials. However, it lacks many features which are seen on the European-spec Kona, which makes it wanting in many departments. Also, in terms of space, given its short wheelbase and low roofline, the rear legroom and headroom are quite limited too.


On the outside, the Hyundai Kona demonstrates how future Hyundai creations will look like. The overall design of the Kona stays very aggressive and is a step above Hyundai’s “fluidic” philosophy. The design has evolved and is purely focused on the millennial generation.

At the front, the Hyundai Kona boasts company’s new generation cascading grille, which looks as if it is derived from Audi’s lineup of cars. A thin strip above the bigger cascading grille, which mimics air scoops for ventilation, is a nice touch too. However, there’s more to the car, which gives it a distinctive appeal. Take for instance, the partitioned theme for the front headlamp setup. The Kona comes with a thin and long strip of daytime running LEDs running beside grille, which looks as if they are eyebrows. The headlamp setup with LED projector units has been placed a bit lower separately, with a nice and thick black cladding job around it. Also, the fog lamps joy a unique positioning, i.e. at either end of the scuff plate below the grille. All these lighting elements and their positioning make the front of the Hyundai Kona very aggressive and distinctive.

Moving towards the sides, the extrovert design language of the Hyundai Kona dilutes a bit, with the side profile having no characteristic line or curve. However, the low slung stance complemented with crossover cues, like lifted clearance and side cladding, makes it look rugged yet sporty. The most significant design element on the side happens to be the ‘7-shaped’ black garnish on the C-pillar.

At the rear, the Kona has an aggressive stance similar to the front, with the separate lighting theme carried forward here as well. While the LED tail lamps look long and slim like the front LED DRLs, the turn indicators and reverse lamp get separate housing with cladding surround. The thick silver skid plate, roof-mounted spoiler, and roof rails make it looks sporty.

Ride & Handling

The Hyundai Kona boasts of a conventional suspension setup of MacPherson struts at the front and a coupled torsion beam axle at the rear. The overall suspension has been tuned on a stiffer side to gel with the sporty appeal of the car, with the Kona offering a best-till-date driving experience in a Hyundai car. The steering too is slightly harder than Hyundai cars from the past, making it direct and precise. The disc brake setup at both the ends also has a progressive feel.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

Under the hood of Kona, Hyundai has plonked in a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. This unit is not new and already does duty on other Hyundai cars such as Tucson and Elantra in international markets. This Atkinson engine pumps out a maximum power output of 149 PS and a peak torque output of 185 Nm, making it one of the most powerful crossovers of the class. The engine is mated to a 6-speed regular torque converter.

Braking & Safety

The Philippine-spec Hyundai Kona misses out on a lot of sophisticated safety equipment which are present on the European version. However, the presence of basics such as front, side and curtain airbags, ABS with EBD, all disc brake setup, reverse parking sensors, engine immobilizer, and tyre pressure monitoring system is quite appreciable.


The Hyundai Kona for the Philippine market may lack many features which are offered as standard in other markets, which does rob some of its appeal. But keeping aside this fact, you do get a wonderful car with an out-of-the-box design theme that is very youthful and aggressive in appeal. The interiors too remain unique yet functional. The performance from the 2.0-litre petrol engine as well as ride quality is decent too, and the Kona handles like a charm, making it the best handling car from Hyundai currently.

    Hector Jan 21, 2020 for Hyundai Kona

    I feel that a car needs to reflect your personality. The Kona does exactly that for me, it has a bold striking look which is hard to miss. I would have loved to get the EV variant but it was out of my budget, unfortunately. Coming to the car, the Kona delivers. The 2.0-litre engine has 149 PS on tap Read More

    The Kona electric is truly a marvel. It is a glimpse into the future of electric mobility. I was always a sceptic about electric cars till I tried one out and ended by buying the Kona. The design of the Kona might not be to everyone's taste but electric cars do need to stand out from the crowd. Driving the Read More

    Emman Sep 11, 2019 for Hyundai Kona

    Hyundai has come a long way and a testament to that is the Kona, possibly one of the best cars in their lineup currently. The first thing that grabs your attention is, of course, the design, which makes a bold statement for such a small car. Performance is also a strong point for the Kona, the 2.0-litre engine is lively Read More

    Tristan Aug 17, 2018 for Hyundai Kona

    There is no denying the fact that this might be the most outrageous looking car designed by Hyundai but it has its own eccentricities that make one purchase the Kona! It is a fairly small SUV that competes with rivals such as Nissan Juke and Seat Arona in what is referred to as the ‘B-SUV’ segment. The Kona is an Read More

    Michael Jul 05, 2018 for Hyundai Kona

    I took the Kona for a test drive and the first thing that put me off was its styling. To be honest, I feel Hyundai has really overdone the appearance of this small SUV. In trying to make a bold vehicle, Hyundai has installed 5 grilles in the front where only 2 of them are real. Apart from that, the Read More
