New Hyundai Kona: Check Out Its Interior And Tech Features

As a Nissan Juke or Toyota C-HR rival, the Hyundai Kona is meant to be both quirky as well as modern, featuring an appealing design to go with plenty of goodies for tech-oriented buyers to enjoy.

We already knew that Hyundai placed both Android Auto as well as Apple CarPlay into the Kona’s infotainment system, to go with HD radio, a rear-view camera, plus 4G telematics.

One thing that stands out though is the introduction of smartphone wireless charging, a first for this segment, and something that’s depicted in the presentation video below – as is the Head-Up Display and the type of information it will project on your windshield.

The videos also show us which buttons operate the Lane Keeping Assist, the Blind-Spot Collision Warning system or the HUD, with the latter utilizing a screen that pops out of the dashboard showing your current speed, sat-nav info and current active safety settings.

Speaking of which, the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) will bring the car to a complete stop if an obstacle is detected ahead, while other features such as the Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), High Beam Assist (HBA) and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) are also tasked with keeping you safe.

The previously mentioned wireless charging capabilities of the Kona are also depicted for the first time on video, with users receiving a notification via the small display between the dials regarding the status of their phone.

Also, thanks to Lastzone as well as Hyundai’s European arm, we can check out several new images of the Kona’s styling, with highlights such as the LED units and muscular front and rear fenders. According to the Korean automaker, it’s a design that should appeal to Millennial buyers.

    The interior looks older than any WV..

  • Sébastien

    does it come with ACC?

  • Dariush

    just the steering wheel is 2017. Everything else is 2010.

        thing is this is a cheap ass car that try to be stylish trough that “shock value design” many brands go for. It’s a B segment SUV and interior arent expected to be great of course…but still the style is overall dated, especially compared to the exterior.

    Why is this class of crossovers a chance for cars to be “quirky”? I mean the Juke, C-HR, HR-V, and now this? It doesn’t have to be this way.

    Those round air vents look like a poorly resolved afterthought. Hyundai management realized the interior was the most boring thing they had ever seen and tried to fix it with some cliche vents and paint.

  • Matthijs

    Not really the best interior in its class.. exterior is quite cool and funky although the many light clusters ruin it for me. The Mazda CX-3 is still the best looking compact SUV

  • Bo Hanan

    Why copy the ugly bits from the competition? Hyundai had a chance to make a better looking car and they failed.


  • sidewaysspin

    Looks like a bad copy of the Citroen C4 Cactus especially those double headlights. And the interior that steering wheel is appaling.

  • Bash

    I like the HUD,,, but still.. I’ll pass

  • D83

    Looks fine..
    And nothing special there (except for the “high-tech” feature like HUD & Wireless Charging)

    The photo of that post is the one I worked on. Reveal the source

    interior looks way better than the exterior
