Hyundai enters the slick crossover league

Hyundai has added the slick new Kina to its South African range. The eye-catching top quality and high spec crossover comes in the choice of a R380K 88kW 172Nm 998cc high-tech 3-pot turbo petrol 6-speed manual 1.0 T-GDI or R400K 2.0 NU 6-speed auto with a 110kW 180Nm 2-litre Atkinson cycle petrol lump. Head-turning design brings twin-LED Daytime headlights and 17-inch alloys while a floating 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen with integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring; navigation, media and connectivity sits in a cabin with generous legroom, trunk capacity and a 60:40 split rear seat. Add Comfort, Eco or Sport driving modes and five-star Euro NCAP safety backed by a 7 year/200 000km warranty and 5 year/90 000km service plan and Kona starts to look pretty appetising.
