FUEL REQUIREMENTS

Gasoline engine

Unleaded
Your new vehicle is designed to perform optimally using unleaded fuel having an octane number ((R+M)/2) of 87 (Research Octane Number 91) or higher. For improved vehicle performance, premium unleaded fuel with an octane number ((R+M)/2) of 91 (Research Octane Number 95) or higher is recommended. (Do not use methanol blended fuels.)

NOTICE
Using unleaded gasoline that is lower than the octane number ((R+M)/2) of 91 (Research Octane Number 95) could result in reduced engine power and increased fuel consumption.

NOTICE
To prevent damage to the engine and engine components, never add any fuel system cleaning agents to the fuel tank other than what has been specified. Consult an authorized HYUNDAI dealer for additional information.

WARNING
Do not “top off” after the nozzle automatically shuts off when refueling. Always check that the fuel cap is installed securely to prevent fuel spillage in the event of an accident.

Gasoline containing alcohol and methanol

Gasohol, a mixture of gasoline and ethanol (also known as grain alcohol) are being marketed along with or instead of leaded or unleaded gasoline. For example, “E15” is a gasohol comprised of 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline. Do not use gasohol containing more than 15% ethanol, and do not use gasoline or gasohol containing any methanol. Either of these fuels may cause drivability problems and damage to the fuel system, engine control system and emission control system. Discontinue using gasohol of any kind if drivability problems occur. “E85” fuel is an alternative fuel comprised of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline and is manufactured exclusively for use in Flexible Fuel Vehicles. “E85” is not compatible with your vehicle. Use of “E85” may result in poor engine performance and damage to your vehicle’s engine and fuel system. HYUNDAI recommends that customers do not use fuel with an ethanol content exceeding 15 percent.

Hyundai Kona-N 2023 Safety Precautions, Seats and Seat Belts User Guide

2023 Hyundai Kona-N Safety Precautions and Seat Belts Guidelines

Important Safety Precautions

You will find many safety precautions and recommendations throughout this section, and throughout this manual. The safety precautions in this section are among the most important.

Always Wear Your Seat Belt
A seat belt is your best protection in all types of accidents. Airbags are designed to supplement seat belts, not to replace them. So even though your vehicle is equipped with airbags, ALWAYS make sure you and your passengers wear your seat belts and wear them properly.

Restrain All Children
All children under age 13 should ride in your vehicle properly restrained in the rear seat, not the front seat. Infants and small children should be restrained in an appropriate Child Restraint System. Larger children should use a booster seat with the lap/shoulder belt until they can use the seat belt properly without a booster seat.

Air Bag Hazards
While airbags can save lives, they can also cause serious or fatal injuries to occupants who sit too close to them, or who are not properly restrained. Infants, young children, and young adults are at the greatest risk of being injured by an inflating air bag. Follow all instructions and warnings in this manual.

Driver Distraction
Driver distraction presents a serious and potentially deadly danger, especially for inexperienced drivers. Safety should be the first concern when behind the wheel and drivers need to be aware of the wide array of potential distractions, such as drowsiness, reaching for objects, eating, personal grooming, other passengers, and using mobile phones.

Drivers can become distracted when they take their eyes and attention off the road or their hands off the wheel to focus on activities other than driving.

To reduce your risk of distraction and an accident:

  • Set up your mobile devices (for example, MP3 players, phones, navigation units, etc.) ONLY when your vehicle is parked or safely stopped.
  • ONLY use your mobile device when allowed by laws and conditions permit safe use. NEVER text or email while driving. Most countries have laws prohibiting drivers from texting. Some countries and cities also prohibit drivers from using handheld phones.
  • NEVER let the use of a mobile device distract you from driving. You have a responsibility to your passengers and others on the road to always drive safely, with your hands on the wheel as well as your eyes and attention on the road.

Control Your Speed
Excessive speed is a major factor in crash injuries and deaths. Generally, the higher the speed, the greater the risk, but serious injuries can also occur at lower speeds. Never drive faster than is safe for current conditions, regardless of the maximum speed posted.

Keep Your Vehicle in Safe Condition
Having a tire blowout or a mechanical failure can be extremely hazardous. To reduce the possibility of such problems, check your tire pressures and condition frequently, and perform all regularly scheduled maintenance.

Safety Precautions

Adjusting the seats so that you are sitting in a safe and comfortable position plays an important role in the safety of the driver and passengers, as much as seat belts and airbags when in an accident.

WARNING
Do not use a cushion that reduces friction between the seat and the passenger. The passenger’s hips may slide under the lap portion of the seat belt during an accident or a sudden stop. Serious or fatal internal injuries could result because the seat belt cannot operate properly.

Airbags
You can take steps to reduce the risk of being injured by an inflating airbag. Sitting too close to an airbag greatly increases the risk of injury in the event the airbag inflates.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that drivers allow at least 10 inches (25cm) between the center of the steering wheel and their chest.

WARNING
To reduce the risk of serious injury or death from an inflating airbag, take the following precautions:

  • Adjust the driver’s seat as far to the rear as possible while maintaining the ability to control the vehicle.
  • Adjust the front passenger seat as far to the rear as possible.
  • Hold the steering wheel by the rim with your hands at the 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions to minimize the risk of injuries to your hands and arms.
  • NEVER place anything or anyone between you and the airbag.
  • Do not allow the front passenger to place feet or legs on the dashboard to minimize the risk of leg injuries.

Seat belts
Always fasten your seat belt before starting any trip. At all times, passengers should sit upright and be properly restrained. Infants and small children must be restrained in appropriate Child Restraint Systems. Children who have outgrown a booster seat and adults must be restrained using seat belts.

Hyundai Kona-N 2023 Child Restraint System (CRS) User Guide

2023 Hyundai Kona-N Child Restraint System Guidelines

Child Restraint System

Children Always in the Rear

WARNING
Always properly restrain children in the vehicle. Children of all ages are safer when restrained in the rear seat. A child riding in the front passenger seat can be forcefully struck by an inflating air bag resulting in SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH. Children under age 13 should always ride in the rear seats and must always be properly restrained to minimize the risk of injury in an accident, sudden stop or sudden maneuver.
According to accident statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seats than in the front seat. Even with airbags, children can be seriously injured or killed. Children too large for a Child Restraint System must use the seat belts provided.

All 50 states have child restraint laws that require children to travel in approved Child Restraint Systems. The laws governing the age or height/weight restrictions at which seat belts can be used instead of the Child Restraint System differ among states, so you should be aware of the specific requirements in your country, and where you are traveling. Child Restraint Systems must be properly placed and installed in the rear seat. You must use a commercially available Child Restraint System that meets the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS 213). Child Restraint Systems are generally designed to be secured in a vehicle seat by a lap belt portion of a lap/shoulder belt, or by a LATCH system in the rear seats of the vehicle.

Child Restraint System (CRS)
Infants and younger children must be restrained in an appropriate rearward-facing or forward-facing CRS that has first been properly secured to the seat of the vehicle. Read and comply with the instructions for installation and use provided by the manufacturer of the Child Restraint System.

WARNING
An improperly secured child restraint can increase the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH in an accident. Always take the following precautions when using a Child Restraint System:

  • NEVER install a child or infant restraint in the front passenger’s seat.
  • Always properly secure the child restraint to a rear seat of the vehicle.
  • Always follow the child restraint system manufacturer’s instructions for installation and use.
  • Always properly restrain your child in the child restraint.
  • If the vehicle head restraint prevents proper installation of a child seat (as described in the child restraint system manual), the head restraint of the respective seating position shall be readjusted or entirely removed.
  • Do not use an infant carrier or a child safety seat that “hooks” over a seatback, it may not provide adequate protection in an accident.
  • After an accident, have an authorized HYUNDAI dealer check the child restraint system, seat belts, tether anchors and lower anchors.

Selecting a Child Restraint System (CRS)

When selecting a Child Restraint System for your child, always:

  • Make sure the Child Restraint System has a label certifying that it meets applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS 213).
  • Select a Child Restraint System based on your child’s height and weight. The required label or the instructions for use typically provide this information.
  • Select a Child Restraint System that fits the vehicle seating position where it will be used.
  • Read and comply with the warnings and instructions for installation and use provided with the Child Restraint System.

Child Restraint System types
There are three main types of Child Restraint Systems: rearward-facing, forward-facing and booster Child Restraint Systems. They are classified according to the child’s age, height and weight.

Child Restraint System 01

Rearward-facing Child Restraint System
A rearward-facing Child Restraint System provides restraint with the seating surface against the back of the child. The harness system holds the child in place, and in an accident, acts to keep the child positioned in the Child Restraint System and reduce the stress to the fragile neck and spinal cord. All children under the age of one year must always ride in a rearward-facing Child Restraint System. Convertible and 3-in-1 Child Restraint Systems typically have higher height and weight limits for the rearward-facing position, allowing you to keep your child rearward-facing for a longer period of time. Keep using Child Restraint Systems in the rearward-facing position as long as children fit within the height and weight limits allowed by the Child Restraint System’s manufacturer. It’s the best way to keep them safe. Once your child has outgrown the rearward-facing Child Restraint System, your child is ready for a forward-facing Child Restraint System with a harness.

WARNING
NEVER install a child or infant restraint in the front passenger’s seat. Placing a rearward-facing child restraint in the front seat can result in SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH if the child restraint is struck by an inflating air bag.Child Restraint System 02

Forward-facing Child Restraint System
A forward-facing Child Restraint System provides restraint for the child’s body with a harness. Keep children in a forward-facing Child Restraint System with a harness until they reach the top height or weight limit allowed by your Child Restraint System’s manufacturer. Once your child outgrows the forward-facing Child Restraint System, your child is ready for a booster seat.

Booster seats
A booster seat is a Child Restraint System designed to improve the fit of the vehicle’s seat belt system. A booster seat positions the seat belt so that it fits properly over the stronger parts of your child’s body. Keep your children in booster seats until they are big enough to fit in a seat belt properly. For a seat belt to fit properly, the lap belt must lie comfortably across the upper thighs, not the stomach. The shoulder belt should lie comfortably across the shoulder and chest and not across the neck or face. Children under age 13 must always be properly restrained to minimize the risk of injury in an accident, sudden stop or sudden maneuver.

Installing a Child Restraint System (CRS)

WARNING
Before installing your Child Restraint System always: Read and follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the Child Restraint System. Failure to follow all warnings and instructions could increase the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH if an accident occurs.

WARNING
If the vehicle head restraint prevents proper installation of a Child Restraint System, the head restraint of the respective seating position shall be readjusted or entirely removed. After selecting a proper Child Restraint System for your child and checking that the Child Restraint System fits properly on the seating position, there are three general steps for a proper

installation:
Properly secure the Child Restraint System to the vehicle. All Child Restraint Systems must be secured to the vehicle with the lap belt or lap part of a lap/shoulder part of a lap/shoulder belt or with the LATCH system. Make sure the Child Restraint System is firmly secured. After installing a Child Restraint System to the vehicle, push and pull the seat forward and from side to side to verify that it is securely attached to the seat. A Child Restraint System secured with a seat belt should be installed as firmly as possible. However, some side-to-side movement can be expected. When installing a Child Restraint System, adjust the vehicle seat and seatback (up and down, forward and rearward) so that your child fits in the Child Restraint System in a comfortable manner. Secure the child in the Child  Restraint System. Make sure the child is properly strapped in the Child Restraint System according to the Child Restraint System manufacturer’s instructions.

CAUTION
A Child Restraint System in a closed vehicle can become very hot. To prevent burns, check the seating surface and buckles before placing your child in the Child Restraint System.

Lower Anchors and Tether for Children (LATCH System)
The LATCH system holds a Child Restraint System during driving and in an accident. This system is designed to make installation of the Child Restraint System easier and reduce the possibility of improperly installing your Child Restraint System. The LATCH system uses anchors in the vehicle and attachments on the Child Restraint System. The LATCH system eliminates the need to use seat belts to secure the Child Restraint System to the rear seats. Lower anchors are metal bars built into the vehicle. There are two lower anchors for each LATCH seating position that will accommodate a Child Restraint System with lower attachments. To use the LATCH system in your vehicle, you must have a Child Restraint System with LATCH attachments. The Child Restraint System manufacturer will provide you with instructions on how to use the Child Restraint System with its attachments for the LATCH anchorages.

2023 Hyundai Kona-N Air Bag – Supplemental Restraint System

Air Bag – Supplemental Restraint System

Hyundai-Kona-N-2023-Owner-Manual-Auto-User-Guide 1

  1. Driver’s front airbag
  2. Passenger’s front airbag
  3. Side airbag
  4. Curtain airbag

The vehicles are equipped with a Supplemental Air Bag System for the driver’s seat and front passenger’s seats. The front airbags are designed to supplement the three-point seat belts. For these airbags to provide protection, the seat belts must be worn at all times when driving. You can be severely injured or killed in an accident if you are not wearing a seat belt. Airbags are designed to supplement seat belts but do not replace them. Also, airbags are not designed to deploy in every collision. In some accidents, seat belts are the only restraint protecting you.

WARNING
AIRBAG SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
ALWAYS use seat belts and Child Restraint Systems – every trip, every time, everyone! Even with airbags, you can be seriously injured or killed in a collision if you are improperly belted or not wearing your seat belt when the airbag inflates.

NEVER place a child in any Child Restraint System or booster seat in the front passenger seat, unless the air bag is deactivated. An inflating air bag could forcefully strike the infant or child causing serious or fatal injuries. ABC – Always Buckle Children under age 13 in the back seat. It is the safest place for children of any age to ride. If a child age 13 or older must be seated in the front seat, he or she must be properly belted and the seat should be moved as far back as possible. All occupants should sit upright with the seatback in an upright position, centered on the seat cushion with their seat belt on, legs comfortably extended and their feet on the floor until the vehicle is parked and the vehicle is turned off. If an occupant is out of position during an accident, the rapidly deploying air bag may forcefully contact the occupant causing serious or fatal injuries. You and your passengers should never sit or lean unnecessarily close to the airbags or lean against the door or center console. Move your seat as far back as possible from front airbags, while still maintaining control of the vehicle. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that drivers allow at least 10 inches (25 cm) between the center of the steering wheel and the chest.

Where Are the Air Bags?
Driver’s and passenger’s front airbags

Hyundai-Kona-N-2023-Owner-Manual-Auto-User-Guide 2

Hyundai-Kona-N-2023-Owner-Manual-Auto-User-Guide 3

Your vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) and lap/shoulder belts at both the driver and passenger seating positions. The SRS consists of air bags which are located in the center of the steering wheel and the passenger’s side front panel pad above the glove box. The airbags are labeled with the letters “AIR BAG” embossed on the pad covers. The purpose of the SRS is to provide the vehicle’s driver and front passengers with additional protection than that offered by the seat belt system alone in case of a frontal impact of sufficient severity. The SRS uses sensors to gather information about the driver’s and front passenger’s seat belt usage and impact severity. The seat belt buckle sensors determine if the driver and front passenger’s seat belts are fastened. These sensors provide the ability to control the SRS deployment based on whether or not the seat belts are fastened, and how severe the impact is. The advanced SRS offers the ability to control airbag inflation within two levels. A first-stage level is provided for moderate-severity impacts. A second stage level is provided for more severe impacts. According to the impact severity, and seat belt usage, the SRS Control Module (SRSCM) controls the air bag inflation. Failure to properly wear seat belts can increase the risk or severity of injury in an accident.

WARNING
To reduce the risk of serious injury or death from inflating front airbags, take the following precautions:

  • Seat belts must be worn at all times to help keep occupants positioned properly.
  • Move your seat as far back as possible from front airbags, while still maintaining control of the vehicle.
  • Never lean against the door or center console.
  • Do not allow the front passenger to place their feet or legs on the dashboard.
  • No objects (such as crash pad cover, mobile phone holder, cup holder, air fresheners or stickers) should be placed over or near the airbag modules on the steering wheel, instrument panel, windshield glass, and the front passenger panel above the glove box. Such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is in a crash severe enough to cause the airbags to deploy.
  • Do not attach any objects on the front windshield and inside mirror.

Side airbags 

Hyundai-Kona-N-2023-Owner-Manual-Auto-User-Guide 4

Hyundai-Kona-N-2023-Owner-Manual-Auto-User-Guide 5

Your vehicle is equipped with a side airbag in each front seat. The purpose of the airbag is to provide the vehicle’s driver and the front passenger with additional protection than that offered by the seat belt alone.
The side airbags are designed to deploy during certain side-impact collisions, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed, and point of impact.
The side airbags on both sides of the vehicle are designed to deploy when a rollover is detected by a rollover sensor. (if equipped with a rollover sensor)
The side airbags are not designed to deploy in all side impact or rollover situations.

WARNING
To reduce the risk of serious injury or death from an inflating side airbag and front center airbag, take the following precautions:

  • Seat belts must be worn at all times to help keep occupants positioned properly.
  • Do not allow passengers to lean their heads or bodies onto doors, put their arms on the doors, stretch their arms out of the window, or place objects between the doors and seats.
  • Hold the steering wheel at the 9  o’clock and 3 o’clock positions, to minimize the risk of injuries to your hands and arms.
  • Do not place any objects between the door and the seat. They may become dangerous projectiles if the side airbag inflates.
  • If the seat or seat cover is damaged, have the system serviced by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Curtain airbags 

Hyundai-Kona-N-2023-Owner-Manual-Auto-User-Guide 6 Hyundai-Kona-N-2023-Owner-Manual-Auto-User-Guide 5

Curtain airbags are located along both sides of the roof rails above the front and rear doors.
They are designed to help protect the heads of the front seat occupants and the rear outboard seat occupants in certain side-impact collisions.
The curtain airbags are designed to deploy during certain side-impact collisions, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed, and impact.
For vehicles equipped with a rollover sensor, the side and/or curtain airbags and pre-tensioners on both sides of the vehicle may deploy if a rollover or possible rollover is detected.
The curtain airbags are not designed to deploy in all side impact or rollover situations.

WARNING
To reduce the risk of serious injury or death from an inflating curtain airbag, take the following precautions:

  • All seat occupants must wear seat belts at all times to help keep occupants positioned properly.
  • Do not hang other objects except clothes, especially hard or breakable objects.
    In an accident, it may cause vehicle damage or personal injury.
  • Do not allow passengers to lean their heads or bodies onto doors, put their arms on the doors, stretch their arms out of the window, or place objects between the doors and seats.
  • Do not attempt to open or repair the side curtain airbags yourself. If necessary, have the airbag inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer?

STEERING WHEEL

Motor Driven Power Steering MDPS)
For information on steering modes, please refer to the separately supplied infotainment system manual. The system assists you with steering the vehicle. If the vehicle is turned off or if the power steering system becomes inoperative, you may still steer the vehicle, but it will require increased steering effort. Should you notice any change in the effort required to steer during normal vehicle operation, have the system checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

CAUTION
If Motor Driven Power Steering does not operate normally, the warning light and the message ‘Check motor-driven power steering’ will illuminate on the instrument cluster. You may steer the vehicle, but it will require increased steering efforts. Take your vehicle to an authorized HYUNDAI dealer or to a service station and have the system checked as soon as possible. When an abnormality is detected in the motor-driven power steering, to prevent a deadly accident, the steering assist function will stop. At this time, the warning light turns on or blinks on the cluster. The steering wheel may become difficult to control or operate. Have your vehicle checked immediately, after moving the vehicle to a safe zone.

Information
The following symptoms may occur during normal vehicle operation:

  • The steering effort may be high immediately after pressing the Engine Start/Stop button to the ON position.
    This happens as the system performs the MDPS system diagnostics. When the diagnostics are completed, the steering wheel effort will return to its normal condition.
  • When the battery voltage is low, you might have to put more steering effort. However, it is a temporary condition so that it will return to normal condition after charging the battery.
  • A click noise may be heard from the MDPS relay after the Engine Start/Stop button is in the ON or OFF position.
  • Motor noise may be heard when the vehicle is at a stop or at a low driving speed.
  • When you operate the steering wheel in low temperatures, abnormal noise may occur. If the temperature rises, the noise will disappear. This is a normal condition.
  • When an error is detected from MDPS, the steering effort assist function will not be activated in order to prevent fatal accidents. Instrument cluster warning lights may be on or the steering effort may be high. If these symptoms occur, drive the vehicle to a safe area as soon as it is safe to do so. Have the system checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer as soon as possible.

Tilt / Telescopic Steering

When adjusting the steering wheel to a comfortable position, adjust the steering wheel so that it points toward your chest, not toward your face. Make sure you can see the instrument cluster warning lights and gauges. After adjusting, push the steering wheel both up and down to be certain it is locked in position.

Hyundai Kona-N 2023 Dual Clutch Transmission User Guide

2023 Hyundai Kona-N Dual Clutch Transmission Guidelines

Dual Clutch Transmission

Dual Clutch Transmission1

  • Depress the brake pedal and press the shift button ahead of the shift lever while moving the shift lever.
  • Press the shift button while moving the shift lever.
  • The shift lever can freely operate.

Dual Clutch Transmission Operation
The dual-clutch transmission has eight forward speeds and one reverse speed. The individual speeds are selected automatically when the shift lever is in the D (Drive) position.

  •  The dual-clutch transmission can be thought of as an automatically shifting manual transmission. It gives the driving feel of a manual transmission, yet provides the ease of a fully automatic transmission.
  • When D (Drive) is selected, the transmission will automatically shift through the gears similar to a conventional automatic transmission. Unlike a traditional automatic transmission, the gear shifting can sometimes be felt and heard as the actuators engage the clutches and the gears are selected.
  • transmission will automatically shift through the gears similar to a conventional automatic transmission. Unlike a traditional automatic transmission, the gear shifting can sometimes be felt and heard as the actuators engage the clutches and the gears are selected. incorporates a wet-type dual-clutch mechanism, which allows for better acceleration performance and increased fuel efficiency while driving. However it differs from a conventional automatic transmission because it does not incorporate a torque converter. Instead, the transition from one gear to the next is managed by clutch slip, especially at lower speeds.
    As a result, shifts are sometimes more noticeable, and a light vibration can be felt as the transmission shaft speed is matched with the engine shaft speed. This is a normal condition of the dual-clutch transmission.
  • The wet-type clutch transfers torque more directly and provides a direct-drive feeling which may feel different from a conventional automatic transmission. This may be more noticeable when launching the vehicle from a stop or when traveling at low, stop-and-go vehicle speeds.
  • When rapidly accelerating from a lower vehicle speed, the engine RPM may increase dramatically as a result of clutch slip as the dual-clutch transmission selects the correct gear. This is a normal condition.
  • When accelerating from a stop on an incline, press the accelerator smoothly and gradually to avoid any shuddering or jerkiness.
  • When traveling at a lower vehicle speed, if you release the accelerator pedal quickly, you may feel engine braking before the transmission changes gears. This engine braking feeling is similar to operating a manual transmission at low speed.
  • When driving downhill, you may wish to move the gear shift lever to Manual Shift mode and downshift to a lower gear in order to control your speed without using the brake pedal excessively.
  • When you turn the engine on and off, you may hear clicking sounds as the system goes through a self-test. This is a normal sound for the dual-clutch transmission.
  • During the first 1000 miles (1,500km), you may feel that the vehicle may not be smooth when accelerating at low speed. During this break-in period, the shift quality and performance of your new vehicle is continuously optimized.

WARNING
To reduce the risk of serious injury or death:

  • ALWAYS check the surrounding areas near your vehicle for people, especially children, before shifting a vehicle into D (Drive) or R (Reverse).
  • Before leaving the driver’s seat, always make sure the shift lever is in the P (Park) position, then set the parking brake, and place the Engine Start/Stop button to the OFF position. Unexpected and sudden vehicle movement can occur if these precautions are not followed.
  • Do not use aggressive engine braking (shifting from a higher gear to a lower gear) on slippery roads. This could cause the tires to slip and may result in an accident.

NOTICE
Always come to a complete stop before shifting into D (Drive) or R (Reverse). Do not put the shift lever in N (Neutral) while driving.

WARNING
Due to transmission failure, you may not continue to drive and the position indicator and the position indicator (D, P) on the instrument cluster will blink. Contact the authorized HYUNDAI dealer and have the system checked.

DCT warning messages
This warning message is displayed when the vehicle is driven slowly on a grade and the vehicle detects that the brake pedal is not applied.

Dual Clutch Transmission3

Steep grade! Press brake pedal
Driving up hills or on steep grades:

  • To hold the vehicle on an incline use the foot brake or the parking brake.
  • When in stop-and-go traffic on an incline, allow a gap to form ahead of you before moving the vehicle forward. Then hold the vehicle on the incline with the foot brake.
  • If the vehicle is held or creeping forward on an incline by applying the accelerator pedal, the clutch and transmission may overheat which can result in damage. At this time, a warning message will appear on the LCD display.
  • If the LCD warning is active, the foot brake must be applied.
  • Ignoring the warnings can lead to damage to the transmission.

Dual Clutch Transmission1

Transmission high temperature

  • Under certain conditions, such as repeated stop-and-go launches on steep grades, sudden take-off or acceleration, or other harsh driving conditions, the transmission clutch temperatures will increase excessively. Finally, the clutch in the transmission could be overheated.
  • When the clutch is overheated, the safe protection mode engages and the gear position indicator on the cluster blinks with a chime. At this time, the “Transmission temp. is high! Stop safely” warning message will appear on the LCD display and driving may not be smooth.
  • If this occurs, pull over to a safe location, stop the vehicle with the engine running, apply the brakes shift the vehicle to P (Park), and allow the transmission to cool.
  • If you ignore this warning, the driving condition may become worse. You may experience abrupt shifts or Jerkiness. To return to normal driving conditions, stop the vehicle and apply the foot brake or shift into P (Park). Then allow the transmission to cool for a few minutes with the engine on, before driving off.
  • When possible, drive the vehicle smoothly.

Dual Clutch Transmission2

Transmission overheated

  • If the vehicle continues to be driven and the clutch temperatures reach the maximum temperature limit, the “Transmission Hot! Park with the engine on” warning will be displayed. When this occurs the clutch is disabled until the clutch cools to normal temperatures.

Hyundai Kona-N 2023 Braking System and Electronic Control Suspension User Guide

2023 Hyundai Kona-N Braking and Electronic Suspension Guidelines

Braking System

Power-Assist Brakes
Your vehicle has power-assisted brakes that adjust automatically through normal usage. If the engine is not running or is turned off while driving, the power assist for the brakes will not work. You can still stop your vehicle by applying greater force to the brake pedal than typical. The stopping distance, however, will be longer than with power brakes. When the engine is not running, the reserve brake power is partially depleted each time the brake pedal is applied. Do not pump the brake pedal when the power assist has been interrupted.

Information

  • When the brake pedal is depressed under certain driving conditions
    or weather conditions, you may temporarily hear a noise. This is normal and does not indicate a problem with your brakes.
  • While driving on a road with deicing chemicals, brake noise or abnormal tire wear may occur due to deicing chemicals. In safe traffic conditions, apply the brakes to remove deicing chemicals on the brake discs and pads.
  • When descending down a long or steep hill, use the paddle shifter and manually downshift to a lower gear in order to control your speed without using the brake pedal excessively. Applying the brakes continuously will cause the brakes to overheat and could result in a temporary loss of braking performance.
  • The brake pressure(%) displayed on the infotainment screen may differ from the actual brake pressure.
  • Wet brakes may impair the vehicle’s ability to safely slow down; the vehicle may also pull to one side when the brakes are applied. Applying the brakes lightly will indicate whether they have been affected in this way. Always test your brakes in this fashion after driving through deep water. To dry the brakes, lightly tap the brake pedal to heat up the brakes while maintaining a safe forward speed until brake performance returns to normal. Avoid driving at high speeds until the brakes function correctly.

Disc Brakes Wear Indicator
When your brake pads are worn and new pads are required, you will hear a high-pitched warning sound from your front or rear brakes. You may hear this sound come and go or it may occur whenever you depress the brake pedal.

NOTICE
To avoid costly brake repairs, do not continue to drive with worn brake pads.

Information
Always replace brake pads as complete front or rear axle sets.

High-Performance Brake
For vehicles equipped with a High-Performance Brake (applied with a material having a high coefficient of friction), noise such as a squeal, squeak or groan is generated while braking. This is normal and the friction may create circle patterns on the disc surface. This is also a normal situation that does not affect braking performance.

NOTICE

  • Occasional brake noise is normal. If a continuous grinding or continuous squeal sound is present, the brake lining may be worn out. We recommend that the vehicle be checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
  •  If the vehicle has continuous vibration or shudders in the steering wheel while braking, we recommend that the vehicle be checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

WARNING
Frequent speeding and braking may deform components and wear the disc brake causing vibration when braking. Prevent brake damage by avoiding excessive braking. Brake wear, noise, vibration from excessive braking or deformation of the brakes caused by repeatedly braking in high speed, racing on tracks, etc. can be excluded from warranty coverage.

Parking Brake

Your vehicle has power-assisted brakes that adjust automatically through normal usage. If the engine is not running or is turned off while driving, the power assist for the brakes will not work. You can still stop your vehicle by applying greater force to the brake pedal than typical. The stopping distance, however, will be longer than with power brakes. When the engine is not running, the reserve brake power is partially depleted each time the brake pedal is applied. Do not pump the brake pedal when the power assist has been interrupted.

Information
When the brake pedal is depressed under certain driving conditions or weather conditions, you may temporarily hear a noise. This is normal and does not indicate a problem with your brakes. While driving on a road with deicing chemicals, brake noise or abnormal tire wear may occur due to deicing chemicals. In safe traffic conditions, additionally, apply the brakes to remove deicing chemicals on the brake discs and pads.

WARNING
Take the following precautions:

  • Do not drive with your foot resting on the brake pedal. This will create abnormally high brake temperatures, excessive brake lining and pad wear, and increased stopping distances.
  • When descending down a long or steep hill, use the paddle shifter and manually downshift to a lower gear in order to control your speed without using the brake pedal excessively. Applying the brakes continuously will cause the brakes to overheat and could result in a temporary loss of braking performance.
  • The brake pressure(%) displayed on the infotainment screen may differ from the actual brake pressure.
  • Wet brakes may impair the vehicle’s ability to safely slow down; the vehicle may also pull to one side when the brakes are applied. Applying the brakes lightly will indicate whether they have been affected in this way. Always test your brakes in this fashion after driving through deep water. To dry the brakes, lightly tap the brake pedal to heat up the brakes while maintaining a safe forward speed until brake performance returns to normal. Avoid driving at high speeds until the brakes function correctly.

Disc Brakes Wear Indicator

When your brake pads are worn and new pads are required, you will hear a high-pitched warning sound from your front or rear brakes. You may hear this sound come and go or it may occur whenever you depress the brake pedal.

Hyundai Kona-N 2023 Special Driving Conditions User Guide

2023 Hyundai Kona-N Driving Conditions Guidelines

Special Driving Conditions

Hazardous Driving Conditions
When hazardous driving elements are encountered such as water, snow, ice, mud, and sand, take the following precautions:

  • Drive cautiously and maintain a longer braking distance.
  • Avoid abrupt braking or steering.
  • When your vehicle is stuck in snow, mud, or sand, use second gear. Accelerate slowly to avoid unnecessary wheel spin.
  • Put sand, rock salt, tire chains, or other non-slip materials under the wheels to provide additional traction while the vehicle becomes stuck in ice, snow, or mud.

WARNING
Downshifting with an automatic transmission while driving on slippery surfaces can cause an accident. The sudden change in tire speed could cause the tires to skid. Be careful when downshifting on slippery surfaces.

Rocking the Vehicle
If it is necessary to rock the vehicle to free it from snow, sand, or mud, first turn the steering wheel right and left to clear the area around your front wheels. Then, shift back and forth between R (Reverse) and a forward gear. Try to avoid spinning the wheels, and do not race the engine. To prevent transmission wear, wait until the wheels stop spinning before shifting gears. Release the accelerator pedal while shifting, and press lightly on the accelerator pedal while the transmission is in gear. Slowly spinning the wheels in forward and reverse directions causes a rocking motion that may free the vehicle.

WARNING
If the vehicle is stuck and excessive wheel spin occurs, the temperature in the tires can increase very quickly. If the tires become damaged, a tire blowout or tire explosion can occur. This condition is dangerous – you and others may be injured. Do not attempt this procedure if people or objects are anywhere near the vehicle. If you attempt to free the vehicle, the vehicle can overheat quickly, possibly causing an engine compartment fire or other damage. Try to avoid spinning the wheels as much as possible to prevent overheating of either the tires or the engine. DO NOT allow the vehicle to spin the wheels above 35 mph (56 km/h).

Information
The ESC system must be turned OFF before rocking the vehicle.

NOTICE
If you are still stuck after rocking the vehicle a few times, have the vehicle pulled out by a tow vehicle to avoid engine overheating, possible damage to the transmission, and tire damage. See the “Towing” section in chapter 8.

Smooth Cornering
Avoid braking or gear changing in corners, especially when roads are wet. Ideally, corners should always be taken under gentle acceleration.

Driving at Night
Night driving presents more hazards than driving in the daylight. Here are some important tips to remember:

  • Slow down and keep more distance between you and other vehicles, as it may be more difficult to see at night, especially in areas where there may not be any street lights.
  • Adjust your mirrors to reduce the glare from other driver’s headlights.
    Keep your headlights clean and properly aimed. Dirty or improperly aimed headlights will make it much more difficult to see at night.
  • Avoid staring directly at the headlights of oncoming vehicles. You could be temporarily blinded, and it will take several seconds for your eyes to readjust to the darkness.

Driving in the Rain
Rain and wet roads can make driving dangerous. Here are a few things to consider when driving in the rain or on slick pavement:

  • Slow down and allow extra following distance. Heavy rainfall makes it harder to see and increases the distance needed to stop your vehicle.
  • Turn OFF your Cruise Control. (if equipped)
  • Replace your windshield wiper blades when they show signs of streaking or missing areas on the windshield.
  • Be sure your tires have enough tread.
    If your tires do not have enough tread, making a quick stop on wet pavement can cause a skid and possibly lead to an accident. See “Tire Replacement” in chapter 9.
  • Turn on your headlights to make it easier for others to see you.
  • Driving too fast through large puddles can affect your brakes. If you must go through puddles, try to drive through them slowly.
  • If you believe your brakes may be wet, apply them lightly while driving until normal braking operation returns.

Hydroplaning
If the road is wet enough and you are going fast enough, your vehicle may have little or no contact with the road surface and actually ride on the water. The best advice is to SLOW DOWN when the road is wet. The risk of hydroplaning increases as the depth of the tire tread decreases, refer to the “Tire Replacement” section in Chapter 9.

Driving In Flooded Areas
Avoid driving through flooded areas unless you are sure the water is no higher than the bottom of the wheel hub. Drive through any water slowly. Allow adequate stopping distance because brake performance may be reduced. After driving through water, dry the brakes by gently applying them several times while the vehicle is moving slowly.

Highway Driving

Tires
Adjust the tire inflation, as specified. Underinflation may overheat or damage the tires. Do not install worn-out or damaged tires, which may reduce traction or fail the braking operation.

Information
Never over-inflate your tires above the maximum inflation pressure, as specified on your tires.

Fuel, engine coolant, and engine oil
Driving at higher speeds on the highway consumes more fuel and is less efficient than driving at a slower, more moderate speed. Maintain a moderate speed in order to conserve fuel when driving on the highway. Be sure to check both the engine coolant level and the engine oil before driving.

Drive belt
A loose or damaged drive belt may overheat the engine.

Reducing the Risk of a Rollover
Your multi-purpose passenger vehicle is defined as a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV). SUVs have higher ground clearance and a narrower track to make them capable of performing in a wide variety of off-road applications. The specific design characteristics give them a higher center of gravity than ordinary vehicles making them more likely to roll over if you make abrupt turns. Utility vehicles have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles. Due to this risk, drivers and passengers are strongly recommended to buckle their seat belts. In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die than a person wearing a seat belt. There are steps that a driver can take to reduce the risk of a rollover. If at all possible, avoid sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers, do not load your vehicle with heavy cargo on the roof, and never modify your vehicle in any way.

WARNING
Utility vehicles have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles. To prevent rollovers or loss of control:

  • Take corners at slower speeds than you would with a passenger vehicle.
  •  Avoid sharp turns and abrupt maneuvers.
  • Do not modify your vehicle in any way that you would raise the center of gravity.
  • Keep tires properly inflated.
  • Do not carry heavy cargo on the roof.

WARNING
In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die than a person wearing a seat belt. Make sure all passengers are wearing their seat belts.

Hyundai Kona-N 2023 Winter Driving User Guide

2023 Hyundai Kona-N Winter Driving Guidelines

Winter Driving

The severe weather conditions of winter quickly wear out tires and cause other problems. To minimize winter driving problems, you should take the following suggestions:

Snow or Icy Conditions
You need to keep a sufficient distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. Apply the brakes gently. Speeding, rapid acceleration, sudden brake applications, and sharp turns are potentially very hazardous practices. During deceleration, use the paddle shifter (left side lever) to increase regenerative braking, but avoid adjusting it to level 3 (steering may be difficult). Sudden brake applications on snowy or icy roads may cause skids to occur. To drive your vehicle in deep snow, it may be necessary to use snow tires or to install tire chains on your tires. Always carry emergency equipment. Some of the items you may want to carry include tire chains, tow straps or chains, a flashlight, emergency flares, sand, a shovel, jumper cables, a window scraper, gloves, ground cloth, coveralls, a blanket, etc.

Snow tires

WARNING
Snow tires should be equivalent in size and type to the vehicle’s standard tires. Otherwise, the safety and handling of your vehicle may be adversely affected. We recommend you use snow tires when road temperature is below 7°C (45°F). Refer to the below chart, and mount the recommended snow tire for your vehicle.

Standard tire
Tire size wheel size/offset
235/40R19 8.0Jx19/55

If you mount snow tires on your vehicle, make sure to use radial tires of the same size and load range as the original tires. Mount snow tires on all four wheels to balance your vehicle’s handling in all weather conditions. The traction provided by snow tires on dry roads may not be as high as your vehicle’s original equipment tires. Check with the tire dealer for maximum speed recommendations.

Information
Do not install studded tires without first checking local and municipal regulations for possible restrictions against their use.

Summer tires
Summer tires are used to maximize driving performance on dry roads. If the temperature is below 44°F (7°C) or you are driving on snowy or icy roads, the summer tires lose their brake performance and traction as the tire grip weakens significantly. If the temperature is below 44°F (7°C) or you are driving on snowy or icy roads, mount snow tires or all-season tires of the same size with your vehicle’s standard tire for safe driving. Both snow and all-season tires have M+S markings. When using the M+S tires, use tires with the same tread produced by the same manufacturer for safe driving. When driving with the M+S tires with a lower maximum allowable speed than that of the vehicle’s standard summer tire, be careful not to exceed the speed allowed for the M+S tires.

Tire chains

Since the sidewalls of radial tires are thinner than other types of tires, they may be damaged by mounting some types of tire chains on them. Therefore, the use of snow tires is recommended instead of tire chains. Do not mount tire chains on vehicles equipped with aluminum wheels; if possible use a wire-type chain. If snow chains must be used, use wire-type chains with a thickness of less than 0.47 inch (12 mm). and install the tire chain after reviewing the instructions provided with the tire chains. Damage to your vehicle caused by improper tire chain use is not covered by your vehicle manufacturer’s warranty.

WARNING
The use of tire chains may adversely affect vehicle handling:

  • Drive less than 20 mph (20 km/h) or the chain manufacturer’s recommended speed limit, whichever is lower.
  • Drive carefully and avoid bumps, holes, sharp turns, and other road hazards, which may cause the vehicle to bounce.
  • Avoid sharp turns or locked wheel braking.

Information
Install tire chains on the front tires. It should be noted that installing tire chains on the tires will provide a greater driving force, but will not prevent side skids. Do not install studded tires without first checking local and municipal regulations for possible restrictions against their use.

Chain Installation
When installing tire chains, follow the manufacturer’s instructions and mount them as tightly as possible. Drive slowly (less than 20 mph (30 km/h)) with chains installed. If you hear the chains contacting the body or chassis, stop and tighten them. If they still make contact, slow down until the noise stops. Remove the tire chains as soon as you begin driving on cleared roads. When mounting snow chains, park the vehicle on level ground away from traffic. Turn on the vehicle Hazard Warning Flasher and place a triangular emergency warning device behind the vehicle (if available). Always place the vehicle in P (Park), apply the parking brake, and turn off the vehicle before installing snow chains.

NOTICE
When using tire chains:

  • Wrong size chains or improperly installed chains can damage your vehicle’s brake lines, suspension, body, and wheels.
  • Use SAE “S” class or wire chains.
  • If you hear noise caused by chains contacting the body, retighten the chain to prevent contact with the vehicle body.
  • To prevent body damage, retighten the chains after driving 0.3~0.6 miles (0.5~10 km).
  • Do not use tire chains on vehicles equipped with aluminum wheels. If unavoidable, use a wire-type chain.
  • Use wire chains less than 0.47 in (12 mm) wide to prevent damage to the chain’s connection.

Winter Precautions

Use high-quality ethylene glycol coolant
Your vehicle is delivered with high-quality ethylene glycol coolant in the cooling system. It is the only type of coolant that should be used because it helps prevent corrosion in the cooling system, lubricates the water pump, and prevents freezing. Be sure to replace or replenish your coolant in accordance with the maintenance schedule in Chapter 9. Before winter, have your coolant tested to ensure that its freezing point is sufficient for the temperatures anticipated during the winter.

Check battery and cables
Winter temperatures affect battery performance. Inspect the battery and cables, as specified in Chapter 9. Have the system checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer or in a service station?
