2020 Hyundai Kona Hybrid
Under the hood is a 1.6-liter GDI engine combined with a 32 kW electric motor. Together this hybrid powertrain produces around 140 BHP and a peak torque of 265 Nm. The engine meshes with a dual-clutch transmission system designed explicitly for Hyundai Kona. The compact hybrid SUV has a top speed of 115 mph (185 km/h).
Hyundai Kona operates in two driving modes: Eco and Sport. The driving mode is, by default, optimized to Eco mode. However, it can be changed to Sport mode for the experience of a peppy performance.
In sports mode, the gears change frequently, and steering becomes more responsive. Additionally, drivers can also select gears manually through the paddle shift in sports mode.
The smart eco-driving assistance in Kona allows it to provide maximum fuel efficiency. It uses the regenerative braking system to charge the electric battery when the vehicle decelerates.
