The 2018 Hyundai Kona is a subcompact SUV designed to take on the likes of the Mazda CX-3 and Toyota C-HR. The eye-catching styling and ergonomic interior make it one of the most interesting subcompact SUVs in a long while. The Hyundai Kona offers a little bit of everything and excels all the while.
The Hyundai Kona offers a distinctive design with long wheelbase and short overhangs. A two-tone roof accents the athletic, capable look. Narrow LED headlights offer an intimidating yet laidback stance. The Kona also bears Hyundai’s new cascading grille design.
Under the hood lies a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers an impressive 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque. The Atkinson-cycle powertrain is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission for optimized fuel economy. An available 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 175 hp and 196 lb-ft of torque is available as well. Sport, Normal, and Eco driving modes adjust throttle and torque to optimize vehicle performance.
The value-oriented Kona features advanced technologies, like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, often found in much more expensive models. The Hyundai Kona also features available console-based wireless charging, the first in the segment to do so.
