New interior design elements for Hyundai Kona SUV

LinkedIn +

The latest-generation Kona subcompact SUV from the Hyundai Motor Company has been designed with a driver-centric interior to deliver a versatile living space that covers the practical and aesthetic needs of its occupants.

With an EV-derived, futuristic design, the Kona has been elongated to 4,355mm to maximize interior space – 150mm more than the previous generation when based on the electric vehicle variant.

The larger interior space delivers an array of practical features and an evolved in-car experience to cater to different lifestyles. The EV-derived universal architecture benefits from a sporty layout with a floating horizontal C-pad to emphasize the vehicle’s wide interior.

Situated at the front of the vehicle are dual 12.3in-wide displays and a floating module to deliver information and infotainment to drivers and passengers. The column-type shift-by-wire has also been relocated from the center console to behind the steering wheel to provide a cleaner-looking cabin and additional space for occupants’ belongings. Ambient lighting also features as standard. Furthermore, the second-row, Curve-less Bench Seat offers maximum comfort and convenience for passengers.

“Upscaled with Kona’s unique character, the all-new Kona confidently expresses its bold and dynamic presence,” said SangYup Lee, executive vice president and head of Hyundai Design Center. “Kona has evolved in every respect to embrace an even wider range of diversity, to become a true lifestyle supporter.”
