The Kona comes in five equipment levels; Go, Active, Active with Safety Pack, Elite and Highlander. Each has a choice of the 2.0-litre engine and front-wheel-drive powertrain, or the more costly 1.6-litre turbo all-wheel-drive.
The least costly Go specification includes 16-inch streel wheels with plastic hubcaps, cloth seat trim, 7.0-inch infotainment screen, and the features available in all Konas.
Upgrading to the Active brings 16-inch better looking aluminium alloy wheels, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with in-built satellite navigation with traffic information, and leather appointed steering wheel and gear knob and an eight-speaker premium audio system.
The Elite gains you leather on the seats (there is a mix of real and fake leather).Adaptive cruise control
, blind-spot monitor, and rear-cross traffic alert are added to the SmartSense active safety package.
Dual-zone climate control allows you to set different temperatures for each side of the cabin, and you can listen to DAB+ digital radio.
Wheel diameter grows an inch to 17 inches, and the correspondingly lower profile tyres look sportier and sharpen the steering slightly. You also get keyless entry and push-button start, front fog lights, rain-sensing windscreen wipers, a luggage net and power folding, heated side mirrors.
The Elite also differs externally with carbon grey side skirts and wheel arches, and a rear metallic skid plate.
Going for a Kona Highlander brings high beam assist, which automatically dims when sensing vehicles ahead.
The Highlander also gains a power-operated sunroof, power adjustment for the front seats, heating and ventilation to both front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a head-up display lets you see your speed and other driving information near eye level on the windscreen.
Other extras include longer lasting LED headlights, front indicators and tail lights, auto-dimming mirror, a wireless charging pad for your phone and sportier 18-inch wheels.
