2018 Hyundai Kona
Hyundai’s newly developed Smartstream 1.6-litre diesel engine offers improved real-life fuel economy and reduced exhaust emissions. The high efficiency of the engine is achieved due to a significant reduction in friction, a highly efficient turbocharger and a parallel intake port. Overall, the engine structure is optimised by implementing lightweight materials, resulting in a significant weight reduction and lower engine noise.
The new Smartstream engine is available with two power outputs. The standard version generates 115 PS / 85 kW, comes with a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) and is equipped with front-wheel drive. The high-power version provides 136 PS / 100 kW and a powerful 320 Nm of torque in combination with the efficient 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (7DCT). For a dynamic ride on and off the road customers can equip the more powerful engine with four- or front-wheel drive.
The Kona offers two turbocharged, small-displacement petrol powertrains with high low-end torque. One of them, Hyundai’s 1.6-litre T-GDI petrol engine, is now available with front- or four-wheel drive and is paired with a 7DCT. The engine, which delivers 177 PS / 130 kW and 265 Nm torque, handles every environment with ease.
Alternatively, customers can choose the economical 1.0-litre T-GDI three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with a 6 MT providing 120 PS / 88kW and 172 Nm.
