20 August 2018 – Greater standard equipment and a high-value range-opening Go variant make the refreshed 2019 Kona an even more compelling proposition in the popular small SUV class.

2019 Kona Active, Elite and Highlander now include a feature-packed new 8-inch satellite navigation system and Krell 8-speaker premium audio system as standard.

A standard power operated glass sunroof for 2019 Kona Highlander brings a heightened cabin mood.

Underling Kona’s unique ability for customer choice and personalisation is the addition of a new, fourth variant - Kona Go.

Building on the generous standard convenience and safety equipment in the 2019 Kona Go and Active is an optional SmartSense™ safety pack that ensures advanced active safety is accessible to every 2019 Kona customer.

“With the addition of a sat-nav infotainment system and premium audio from Kona Active upwards, and an accessible new Go range-opener, the refreshed 2019 Kona builds on the model’s terrific value and appeal for active urban buyers,” said Hyundai Motor Company Australia Chief Operating Officer Scott Grant.
