Hyundai unveils Kona Night Edition

July 23, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Hyundai has shown the Kona in a special Night Edition.

The Kona Night Edition, which will begin shipping in the US this September, features LED lighting and 18-inch RAYS wheels with black trim.

In addition, the Korean cross has many glossy black accents on the exterior. Although the company did not go into details, judging from the photo, dark elements include the exterior mirror housings and the area around the grille. The Kona cross will be offered in shades such as Ultra Black, Galactic Gray and Chalk White.

As for the interior of the Kona Night Edition, according to the manufacturer, there are alloy pedals and black accents on many elements, such as door panels, while the vents have a silver finish.

The special version is equipped with a 4-cylinder 175-horsepower 1.6-liter turbo engine. Together with the engine, a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and probably an all-wheel drive system will function.

Despite the fact that Hyundai has said almost nothing about the special variation of the crossover, the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine indicates that the model is based on the Limited or Ultimate trim level. If so, then the cabin should be expected to include heated leather front seats and a multimedia system with a 7- or 8-inch display and support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The special Kona variant should also get automatic climate control, an eight-speaker premium Infinity audio system, wireless smartphone charging, an electrochromatic rearview mirror with HomeLink and a 4.2-inch color dash display.

Kona Night Edition, in particular, will acquire driver assistants, including monitoring “blind” zones, assistance when changing and keeping lane, and also a front collision avoidance system.

In addition, the Hyundai Tucson showroom was recently shown on a teaser. The interior of the expected new model may turn out to be quite technological and repeats the ideas of the recently presented Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The novelty will officially debut before the end of this year.
