Hyundai expands KONA crossover line-up with new Play trim level

The new grade follows on from the popularity of i10 and i20 Play models.

Hyundai has introduced a new Play trim level to its popular KONA range.

Sitting above S and SE models, Play aims to bring a long list of standard equipment to customers at an attractive starting price – as it has on the i10 and i20 Play models.

The Play is offered exclusively with the 118bhp 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which is paired to a five-speed manual gearbox.

This trim is based on SE, which itself comes with a seven-inch touchscreen, a reversing camera, cruise control and autonomous emergency braking, to name but a few features. On top of this the Play adds 18-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass and free metallic and pearlescent paint colours — which normally cost £565 to option.

Seven bright colours are available, including Acid Yellow and Blue Lagoon.

Ashley Andrew, managing director of Hyundai Motor UK, said: “The i10 and i20 Play have been incredibly popular since their introduction only 3 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”.
