The new Hyundai Kona hybrid and mild-hybrid car leasing spec has been unveiled.
The prices and specification for the revamped Hyundai Kona SUV have been revealed.
The popular contract hire car range now includes the sporty N Line trim for the first time, and there's a full hybrid option and a mild-hybrid choice.
The new car has seen its interior and exterior design being enhanced, plus there's a new suspension to deliver a comfortable and enjoyable ride.
Hyundai says that the new N Line option will have a sporty dynamic to enjoy.
There are also several design features including a bespoke diamond cut alloys, and the interior has seen a comprehensive makeover.
Prices for the Kona range in 2021 start at £21,060 OTR for the entry-level model.
The price means that contract hire costs for the 2021 Kona range will be worth checking and comparing.
The entry-level model features a 1.0-litre petrol engine with mild hybrid technology with the power being delivered by the firm's six-speed intelligent manual transmission.
The hybrid models feature a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor powered by a 1.56 kWh iron battery.
The transmission for the hybrid Kona is a six-speed dual-clutch transmission.
There's a lot of equipment for the Hyundai Kona car lease including body-coloured door mirrors, 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler with an integrated LED brake plus LED daytime running lights.
Drivers also get to enjoy electric windows, air-conditioning and a 10.25-inch digital instrument display.
There's also automatic activation for the headlights, a USB port and an eight-inch touchscreen display.
Safety kit includes a rear-view camera, lane-departure warning and forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection.
Other models in the Hyundai Kona line-up feature climate control, automatic windscreen wipers, rear parking sensors and ambient lighting.
The top of the range Kona is the ultimate which costs £25,960 OTR and has electric front seat adjustment, an electric tilt and slide sunroof plus there's blind spot collision warning and a safe exit warning to prevent anyone leaving the vehicle with danger from oncoming traffic.
The new contract hire Hyundai Kona hybrid range will be available in showrooms in January and it is certainly a compact SUV worth considering.
It's in a competitive segment but comes with the firm's five-year unlimited mileage warranty, plus there's a five-year annual health check and roadside assistance.
That should bring peace of mind for those who are driving lots of miles, particularly company car drivers and there's a lot of equipment for the money.
For those who would like a sporty performance from an SUV, the Hyundai Kona N Line offers impressive levels of performance.
Green Cars’ is the term used for zero, low and ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) - with pressure being applied to lower global emission levels, the need for “eco-friendly” vehicles is on the rise. Many countries now have plans in place to abolish the use of combustion engines before the turn of the century and so more and more vehicles we see on the roads will be Electric, hybrid or very low emission petrol and diesels.
Although beneficial to the environment, ‘Green Cars’ are also beneficial from a taxation view. The lower a vehicle’s emissions banding, the lower the taxation placed against it. Many manufacturers have tapped in to this ever-growing market with their own offerings, however, Volvo were the first manufacturer to state that every one of their models will be either electric or hybrid options from 2019.
