Hyundai Kona Engine Oil Finder

Petrol, diesel, hybrid and electric: the Hyundai Kona has something for every taste. As the smallest SUV in the model range, The Hyundai Kona was launched with two petrol engines for the first time in 2017. A year later, two diesel engines followed, and in 2019 a hybrid and the Kona electric rounded off the model selection. The only thing missing was a sports model. This came along in April 2021 where the Hyundai Kona N takes over the 280 hp engine from the Hyundai i30 N.

Hyundai came quite late into the B segment of SUVs with the Kona, but it can stand out. With its smart body design, light-footed handling and good equipment, the Hyundai Kona is right on trend. Even more attractive is Hyundai's fourth SUV with the powerful and durable electric drive, which makes the Kona a unique offering in the booming compact SUV segment.

Despite the four-wheel drive that is standard in the 198 hp variant and the 17 centimeters of ground clearance, the Hyundai Kona usually does not drive off-road, but on solid ground. And it does it in such a way that you quickly like it and feel just as comfortable in the front-wheel drive version as in the four-wheel drive version.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Hyundai Kona's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Hyundai Kona engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Hyundai Kona? Whether you are topping up your Hyundai Kona oil or doing a full change of your Hyundai Kona's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
