KONA’s advanced control systems give you the confidence to drive down less travelled roads or in poor weather conditions.
The large jog wheel on the center console provides access to KONA’s advanced electronic control systems: This jog wheel may look simple but it offers powerful features: With a quick turn and a click, KONA keeps you going, exploring and discovering.
The Drive Mode selector offers a choice of three different settings to suit your personal preferences. Drive Mode automatically modifies the gear shift schedule to transform KONA’s personality into frugal, fast or just plain normal.
While gas mileage on the new KONA is already impressive, driving in Eco Mode is guaranteed to save you money at the fuel pump.
Sport Mode is made for those times when you just feel like letting it go. With Sport Mode dialed in, KONA responds with energetic enthusiasm, the pace quickens and the fun begins.
Normal is a happy place to be as it puts you at the half-way point between Eco and Sport. Offering the best of both, this setting delivers perfectly relaxed, everyday driving performance.
Traction Control Mode
When driving conditions become difficult, TCM steps in to ensure optimal traction. Available on both 2WD and 4WD, TCM automatically selects the right gear and regulates engine torque delivery to each individual wheel so that wheel slip is minimized.
Rotating the jog wheel controller puts you in Snow Mode and when the Snow Mode icon lights up on the instrument panel then you know you’re really ready for some tough winter driving.
When you’re in Mud Mode, sensors can instantly detect wheel slippage and will automatically redirect torque to the wheel with the most traction so that you can keep moving despite the hazardous driving conditions.
Driving on sand poses a unique set of challenges but KONA’s smart controller keeps you moving safely ahead. Special algorithms developed for sand driving secure the right gear and ensure each wheel gets the right amount of torque at the right moment to guarantee optimal tire traction.
