2021 Hyundai Kona Review

With its low wide stance and protective urban armor the Hyundai Kona is a stylish functional compact crossover that’s ready to take on city streets back-country roads and everything in between. Choose from five trims starting with the SE and moving through the top-of-the-line Ultimate. Outside the Kona is small enough to take the stress out of crowded city streets and tiny parking spots. But with over 113 cubic feet of space on the inside it’s big enough for five people to ride comfortably. Two engine choices and All-Wheel Drive are available so you can go just about anywhere—in just about any kind of weather. And with up to 33 miles per gallon1 you can get really far away. Wherever you go Apple CarPlay and Android Auto mean you’ll stay connected. And Hyundai SmartSense Driver-Assist Features mean you’ll stay protected. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Kona that’s all yours. The Hyundai Kona. It’s the perfect size for any adventure.
Your Hyundai Kona is loaded with technology. Bluetooth hands-free calling Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability and a seven-inch color touchscreen are standard equipment. SiriusXM satellite radio is available. So is Navigation which upgrades to an eight-inch touchscreen. Forget to roll up the windows? Want your Kona to be nice and warm—or nice and cool—when you get in? No problem. Hyundai’s Blue Link Connected Car System turns your smartphone or smartwatch into a remote control for your car. The Hyundai Kona. More technology bang for your buck.
Whether it’s a truck ahead of you a motorcycle next to you or a car coming down the street when you’re backing out of your driveway there’s danger everywhere. That’s why the Hyundai Kona is built with advanced high-strength steel. And why it comes with a comprehensive supplemental restraint system. And a host of other standard safety features. But that’s not all. Available safety features include Blind-Spot Collision Warning Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection Lane Keeping Assist and more. The Hyundai Kona. Safety first.
The Hyundai Kona is engineered to perform. The standard two-liter four-cylinder engine gets up to thirty-three miles per gallon. Or get more punch with the available 1.6-liter turbo—175 horsepower and up to 32 miles per gallon. The standard six-speed automatic transmission delivers smooth power while the available seven-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission combines performance and fuel economy. Available All Wheel Drive adds a Multi-Link Rear Suspension for improved traction and cornering capability. The Hyundai Kona. It’s ready for your next adventure.
