Hyundai Kona gets a new 1.6-litre diesel engine option

Hyundai has officially added a new diesel engine option to the Kona range in the UK. The stylish crossover, in fact, now comes with a newly developed 1.6-litre CRDi engine with two different power outputs. 

The Kona diesel is available with a choice of two drivetrain options – a two-wheel drive 115bhp six-speed manual or a 136bhp, seven-speed dual-clutch auto which is also two-wheel drive. In terms of appearance, the Kona looks really funky and thoroughly modern and the best part is that Hyundai plans to bring it to India in the future. 

At the front, the Kona has Hyundai's new family identity, the cascading grille, featuring a mesh pattern, flanked by flared wheel arches and a separated-headlight design with DRLs. A contrasting black trim on the side visually connects the front to the rear. As with the front LED arrangement, the slim brake lights, turn indicators and reverse lamps are in a separate configuration.

In terms of safety features, there are active safety equipment like forward collision avoidance system, lane keep assist and driver attention warning. There’s also a blind spot collision warning system.

The Hyundai Kona competes against the likes of the Jeep Renegade, Nissan Juke and the Toyota C-HR globally. Here in the Indian market, it will compete against cars like the Ford EcoSport and the Maruti Brezza.
