As such, we believe that it is just right to choose the body color that you thoroughly like to further highlight the design of the subcompact crossover. Offered by Hyundai Philippines under one variant only, the colors available for Hyundai Kona in the Philippines total to 10. Every color showcases a distinct look that should address the different tastes in the market.

Of note, the following Hyundai Kona colors are used for reference and serve as illustration purposes only. The available Hyundai Kona colors will still depend on your chosen dealership. So without further ado, here are the 10 colors offered by the Korean automaker for its sporty-looking subcompact crossover.

Bright and Flashy

Since the Hyundai Kona looks youthful and sleek, then we recommend that it should be finished with flashy body color options to complement the exterior design. To achieve this look, then you can opt for the following color options: Acid Yellow, Blue Lagoon, Red, Tangerine Comet, and Ceramic Blue.

Hyundai Kona in Acid Yellow

Perhaps the most common color for the Hyundai Kona is Acid Yellow. When we did a review on this subcompact crossover, it is finished in Acid Yellow. The Hyundai Kona color of Acid Yellow creates a bright appeal which also helps accent the black trims on the fender flares, side sills, and headlamp housings.

Hyundai Kona in Blue Lagoon color

This is the same case for the Blue Lagoon color option. The Blue Lagoon color makes the model look like it’s being driven by some college students on long road trips or midnight getaways to a drive-thru. If you think that this option looks too bright, then you can pick the Ceramic Blue which looks a bit mature as compared to the Blue Lagoon.

To further boost the sporty appeal of the Hyundai Kona, then you have the Red and Tangerine Comet as options. These color options blend well with the standard black trims of the Hyundai Kona, more specifically the Red body paint. The Tangerine Comet body paint gets more of an orange shade which should be a positive thing if you are that type of car owner who likes to look a bit different on the road.

On the other hand, the Hyundai Kona in blue color won’t give you the same exclusivity on the road as it is one of the most popular car colors in the world alongside Red. The Hyundai Kona color of Acid Yellow should be your go-to if you wish your subcompact crossover to look unique.

Beauty will always be subjective. This doesn’t apply only in the world of fashion, but also in choosing your next car’s body color. You should go for the option that represents you in some way, sort of like a fashion statement if you will. The five available colors for the Hyundai Kona should not bring you down in showcasing a bright and flashy appeal anywhere you go.

Clean look

Now we’re on the body color options that, one can say, opposite to the appearance that the said five colors above can offer. The Hyundai Kona color in either Chalk White or Velvet Dune should provide a clean look to the finish, while still managing to give justice to the well-rounded design on the Korean subcompact crossover.

There are plenty of good reasons why white is the most popular car color in the world for the longest time. A car finished in white can help hide scratches, dust, dirt, and water spots which provide a cleaner look even if you don’t take your Hyundai Kona to the car wash regularly.

A white finish also reflects sunlight better as compared to dark colors such as black, providing a cooler cabin which is essential during the summer season. The Hyundai Kona color of Chalk White will provide you the said benefits.

Not to mention the attractive color combination white and black shows. Since the Hyundai Kona is finished with various black trims, contrasting those with the Chalk White color option might be a viable option. The only con in opting for the white color is that you will lose the feeling of exclusivity on the road, if that even matters to you.

Hyundai Kona in Velvet Dune color

So if you think that a Hyundai Kona in Chalk White color looks too bland, then maybe the Velvet Dune is the hue for you. It still provides that simple and clean look as the white body paint, but adds a bit of color to the finish.

Dark Hues

Last on this list are the Hyundai Kona colors that create an elegant and sophisticated look, namely the Phantom Black, Lakeside Silver, and Dark Knight. These three body color options help the subcompact crossover look a bit more of an executive vehicle rather than a relatively affordable option in the automotive market.

Hyundai Kona in Phantom Black color

However, going for the Phantom Black might not be the best option on the roster. Hyundai dominated the design of the Kona with black trims to create that off-road and rugged appeal which makes it look more like a proper SUV. The Hyundai Kona color of Phantom Black will blend with the model’s standard black trims, resulting in a monotone finish.

Hyundai Kona in Lakeside Silver color

The only exterior features that the Phantom Black paint option will accent are the chrome trims on the headlamps and its 17-inch alloy wheels. But again, go for the option that you think is best for you. There are the Lakeside Silver and Dark Knight on the side if you still want a dark shade, but not as what the Phantom Black offers.

Hyundai Kona in Dark Knight color

Hyundai Kona Dark Knight

One can say that the Lakeside Silver goes well with the black and chrome trims of the subcompact crossover, while the Dark Knight is the best alternative to the Phantom Black paint finish. All Hyundai Kona colors on the darker side of the hues should create a stylish and premium finish to the overall design.
