Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) just recently launched two new models – the all-new 2020 Sonata and Kona along with a bold new tagline ‘Geared for Distinction’ for Hyundai in Malaysia.
The Sonata offers several segment-first features such as state-of-the-art hidden lighting lamps architecture; blind-spot-view monitoring that offers a “live” video feed of blind spots which is projected onto a video screen on the digital gauge cluster; and a 6-speed automatic transmission with a shift-by-wire feature controlled by a push-button shift console. It is also the first Hyundai model in Malaysia to be equipped with the Smartstream G2.5 powertrain.
The much-anticipated B-segment compact SUV, Kona, is another of Hyundai’s design innovations that is expected to reach a new market segment for the brand. The Kona appeals to consumers with active lifestyles, particularly the younger generation of car buyers.
The Kona’s “urban smart armour” exterior features voluminous, aggressive body styling which complements a low and wide stance for great looks and confident handling in a variety of urban and adventure-oriented driving environments. Unique in its segment, the Kona incorporates several distinguishing features, among them, Wireless Phone Charging and Driver Attention Warning System. The contrasting vibrant colour seatbelts and interior trim colour creates a burst of exciting colour in the cabin.
The Kona is available in three variants, namely the 2.0-liter Nu MPI Standard and Active as well as the 1.6 Turbo which is priced at RM123,888, RM138,888 and RM151,888 respectively. For a limited time only, HSDM is offering a special introductory price, inclusive of tax savings, of RM115,888 for the 2.0 KONA, RM130,888 for the 2.0 Active and RM143,888 for the 1.6 Turbo variant (Peninsula Malaysia, on the road excluding insurance) .
The Sonata is only available in the SmartStream G2.5 version and priced at RM206,888. HSDM is offering the first 50 Sonata units at a special introductory price, inclusive of tax savings, of RM189,888 (Peninsular Malaysia, on the road excluding insurance).
Both the Sonata and Kona are entitled to a five-year or 300,000km (whichever comes first) warranty. It is available for viewing at all Hyundai showrooms nationwide. Interested parties may contact Hyundai’s Customer Careline at 1-300-13-2000.
