The much loved Hyundai Kona has been suffering from 2 weaknesses : The lack of native navigation system but also the relatively slow 7.4kw onboard charger, making an full AC charge in no faster than 9 hours. This can now be reduced to just 6 hours thanks to the 3-phase 11kw onboard charged offered as standard on the new Premium trim.

Aesthetically, the Kona Premium looks just the same as the regular one, but for an extra €2,000 it offers as well a larger 10.5 inches infotainment screen with built-in navigation (the “base” version has only Apple Carplay/Android Auto). The stereo is also upgraded with a 8-speaker Krell Audio System.

Finally you can now choose the interior color, as a full black leather can be picked as an alternative to the light grey upholstery. The 2-tone paint is available for €600, on both trims.

Hyundai Kona – €38,630
Hyundai Kona Premium – €40,630

Prices include VRT relief, SEAI grant and exclude metallic paint and delivery charges.
