The Kona gets the familar Hyundai layout

Interiors – We have become accustomed to a certain standard of quality and feel good factor in the Hyundai cabins and the Kona is no exception. Being an electric car, chances are you would be expecting something different. However, the layout is similar to other Hyundai cars on sale in India. The 7-inch infotainment system is very usable and it gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also gives you the battery and charging status. The Kona uses shift-by-wire technology and hence it gets buttons for gear shifts rather than a conventional gear lever. This also makes the console de-cluttered and makes space for storage areas.

The rear seats feel a bit tight for three passengers

Feature loaded cabin with exceptional quality levels gives a premium vibe

The front seats are supportive with enough headroom and knee room. The driver seat gets electronic adjustment. The rear bench is average by compact SUV standards but legroom and headroom could be better and under-thigh support is lacking. In terms of equipment, the Kona packs quite a punch. It is available in only one fully loaded trim and gets all the bells and whistles. Standard equipment includes auto headlamps, rear parking camera with guidelines, leather seats, dual zone climate control, sunroof, cruise control, heated and cooled front seats and tyre pressure monitoring system amongst others.
