Over the air updates. What a novel idea. I wonder why no other manufacturer has thought of that……🙄 sarcasm aside, better late than never!

I like what I read there, particularly the HUD and wireless connectivity. The dash and infotainment looks nice but the stand-out change for me is the return to a 3-spoke steering wheel as I never liked the two spoke affair in the current model.

Presumably, we will need to wait until a completely new version of the car is produced before we have rear light clusters higher up. On the subject of lights, my previous KIA had a full suite of LED lamps inside and out with the exception of the luggage area which was an incandescent festoon. I can’t understand why the Hyundai people haven’t seen fit to equip their top-of-the-range, ‘Ultimate’ models with LEDs in every area......not exactly my understanding of the meaning implied by the word!

There is plenty of scope for improvement in suspension refinement but as the car is their best-seller worldwide, I can understand that they take the view, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’!

Otherwise, what we have had a glimpse of is pretty much standard fare for a mid-life update in a car model’s gestation.

Adjustable regen with the steering paddles sounds interesting. A 12inch HUD. We get the choice of blue and green colours which, from the pics, look very similar, not surprisingly to the Kia Sportage colours. It just seems far more than a facelift when the interior is pretty much completely different to the current car. Agreed on the LED comment plus it looks like they have regressed as the NLine look to have incandescent bulbs in the lower rear bumper. Regardless,it's an easy upgrade to change those bulbs to quality LEDs. The bulbs are far brighter and aesthetically if nothing else, look better.

Looks like a step back on the interior I won’t be rushing out to change

Had a look at the brochure. The big difference for me is that the model I have now is over the £40k for a new one - so tax goes up a lot. So, why would I change?

I own a 2022 Ultimate Hybrid with Tech Pack - in Red (best colour).
Also have two motorcycles. Honda CB1300 and Honda CBF1000 (also red, of course).

Ditto the N Line S. Also, the new model appears to be 15hp down on the previous model (with correspondingly lower performance. Maybe the MPG & Emissions figures will be better? (they're 'TBC' in that brochure)).

Then there's the depreciation, if you were trading in - according to Autotrader, mine has lost almost £10K in its first year!. Better to stick to Plan A and sell it when it's out of warranty, I think.

I'm not sure I like this idea - at least, not without some control of what and when updates are applied. It was bad enough having my central heating controller remotely updated (so that the Hot Water schedule no longer worked!), but I'm not so keen on the car's functionality changing for the worse, mid-way through an overtaking manoeuvre ;)

The local dealer provided a Kona Electric, when the Tucson was having its service, so I've had a play with this. Granted I only drove the car 30 miles, but I reckoned 'Max. Regen' would take some getting used to. (As a biker, I'm used to the dramatic braking effect from just removing the power, but in car it felt most unnatural...)

I've looked at the spec list. Yes power has reduced slightly. It was 227bhp (230ps) on current car but has dropped to 215bhp, which I think is similar to the sportage. Has torque gone down slightly on HEV but has gone up on PHEV?

No mention of Head Up Display that I could see but it was mentioned in the news article. It suggests all rear lights are LED both in the spec list and the news article. No mention of adjustable suspension that used to come with tech pack. No mention of auto park, again feature of tech pack.

You might be lucky to get an NlineS HEV or Ultimate HEV under the 40k luxury car tax as long as you go with the standard colour (which is?) or maybe even white.

It's £39600 retail price and then delivery/road tax/registration which bumps it to £40640 on the road. I believe On the road costs are not included in the luxury car tax calculation so you might just get it under.

Carwow have the current model in their configuration and are showing a discount of £3200 on the NlineS and Ultimate Hybrids. I would want at least £5k discount before considering a change and that is with the caveat in regards to the luxury car tax.

I do like the new interior, I've traditionally avoided leasing the same car twice as I like to have something that looks and feels like a different car each time I take a new lease. This is changed enough inside to feel like a completely different vehicle. The only downside for me is that the initial specs are showing a reduction in power for the hybrid models compared to the current spec.
