Hyundai Motor Company has taken the wraps off the new 2021 Hyundai Kona along with a performance-focussed version of it. This is the first time the Kona has been rolled out in an N Line variant. The Kona N Line gets design features distinguishing it from the standard variant, including its sporty front and rear end, body colour claddings, and diamond-cut wheel design. The Kona facelift has also been upgraded significantly in terms of exterior and interior features.

The new Kona gets a new front end design that is now sportier with the protective cladding panels, the bonnet that stretches over the centre grille with a wide, distinctive shape, and sleek LED DRLs. The SUV gets a skid plate on the lower bumper which also has air intakes.

The 2021 Kona retains the silhouette from the side from the previous model but gets a subtle enhancement due to the visual connection between the shoulder creases and the front end. Hyundai have also given it new tail lamps that feature horizontally-stretched graphics. The new rear bumper, which also follows the protective armour concept of the front and sides, is also built with a contrasting material.

Hyundai Kona facelift rides on updated 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels and the 16-inch wheels have also been carried over from its predecessor. Kona Hybrid gets the same 16- or 18-inch wheels as before. In terms of dimensions, the 2021 Kona is 40 mm longer than the older model.

Customers can choose to pair any colour with the Phantom Black roof. The two-tone colour options also get matching mirror housings.

The new Kona interior gets a complete overhaul with new colours and materials. New seat cover options include a black woven houndstooth design, cloth seats with black and grey embossing, and perforated leather seats in black, beige, or khaki. As an option, Kona is also available with a light beige interior trim.
