Hyundai expands Kona range with new PLAY trim

Hyundai has announced the pricing & specification for the Kona Play, which is available to order.

It's priced at £18,130 (P11d), making it £250 cheaper than the equivalent Kona SE.

The Kona Play is only available with a 1.0-litre T-GDi petrol engine, mated with a five-speed manual gearbox.

With CO2 emissions of 129g/km, it has a 29% Benefit-in-kind (BIK) rate and monthly company car tax payments of £87.60 (20% taxpayer).

Kona Play comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass and metallic or pearl paint in addition to the SE’s specification that inlcudes a seven-inch touchscreen with DAB, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear parking sensors with rear-view camera, cruise control with speed limiter, Bluetooth, air conditioning and a leather steering wheel and gear lever.

Safety features include Lane Keep Assist, Driver Attention Alert, Hill Start Assist and Downhill Brake Control. A space saver spare wheel is fitted.

Seven colours are offered, including Acid Yellow, Blue Lagoon, Chalk White, Lake Silver, Phantom Black, Pulse Red or Tangerine Comet.

The Kona Play joins the i10 Play and i20 Play, which were introduced earlier in the year.

Ashley Andrew, managing director of Hyundai Motor UK, said: “The i10 and i20 Play have been incredibly popular since their introduction only three months ago and with Kona Play offering the similar mix of high specification equipment at a low price, we expect the demand for Kona Play to be just as strong as the other Play models”.

Prices for the Fleet News award-winning Kona range start at £17,030 (P11d), for the entry level S. It is also available in Premium and Premium SE trims, plus range-topping Iron Man.

Alongside the 1.0 T-GDI, the Kona is available with a 1.6-litre diesel and a 1.6-litre turbo petrol, plus two electric versions. A hybrid model is expected to join the line-up before the end of the year.

All Kona models come with Hyundai’s five-year unlimited mileage warranty, roadside assistance package, five-year annual health check, and 12-year anti-corrosion warranty.
