Hyundai Kona Active 2017 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7.5
The Hyundai Kona range kicks off with the Active.

The Hyundai Kona range kicks off with the Active - available in two guises; the standard car and a Safety Pack model - which sits below the Elite and Highlander trim levels in the model lineup.

Like every Kona, the Active is available with two engine choices. The cheaper option is a 2.0-litre petrol unit good for 110kW and 180Nm, and it will pair with a conventional six-speed torque converter automatic, sending its power to the front wheels. Alternatively, you can opt for a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine producing 130kW and 265Nm. It pairs with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, and sends the grunt to all four wheels.

The Active starts at $24,500 ($27k drive-away) in its cheapest guise and climbs to $28,000 for the better engine and all-wheel drive. Your investment buys you 16-inch alloys, LED daytime running lights and dusk-sensing headlights outside, while an Apple Car Play and Android Auto-equipped 7.0-inch touchscreen handles the entertainment. Power windows in both rows, roof rails and cruise control also arrive as standard, joined by cloth seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

As the name suggests, the Active with Safety Pack ($26,000 - $29,500) adds Hyundai's SmartSense safety package, which includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist, AEB with pedestrian detection, forward-collision warning and a driver-fatigue warning, as well as powered and heated wing mirrors.
