The mid-range type of this five-passenger subcompact SUV gets extra standard features in 2010.
The title Hyundai Kona appears to me personally like an odd mix of terms, until i do believe from it as South Korean Aloha, then it is irresistible.
Kona is a subcompact crossover SUV with seating for five, but passengers that are rear-seat well be tiny. Two midsize individuals could stay here with a lot of convenience, though.
Kona has bold but reasonable outside styling, enjoyable and sporty driving character, good gas economy, and pricing that is attractive.

The SEL Plus is really a brand new trim this 12 months, created from the previous SEL with Tech Package. It offers a 4.2-inch color multi-information display formerly discovered just in the Ultimate model. Cordless phone charging is another good function it inherits through the Ultimate.
The Ultimate gets adaptive cruise control this year, and Limited models with the Sunset Orange paint color offer the option of adding orange interior accents for its part.

We drove the 2020 Hyundai Kona Ultimate AWD model because of this review. Its feisty turbo engine and seven-speed automatic produced couple that is beautiful the wonderful winding wooded roads of Snohomish County. Meanwhile, the driverвЂ™s seat in the top-notch Kona inside stayed completely comfortable on the road after all rates and throughout varying quantities of pavement quality.

An touchscreen that is 8-inch navigation is standard from the Kona Ultimate. It provides Android car and Apple CarPlay integration, SiriusXM radio, and a 315-watt infinity sound system with eight speakers.
Carpeted flooring mats were the sole optional item on my tester. The best model comes accepted with a hefty selection of convenience and convenience features in addition to security gear. There are some automotive features we specially appreciate as a whole, that are not constantly included on automobiles costing a lot more than the Kona, nonetheless they had been all there: Light-emitting Diode headlights, a sunroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, blind spot monitoring, and cross-traffic alert that is rear.
KonaвЂ™s black colored fender cladding gets blended responses. The dark Thunder Gray paint of my tester made the cladding nearly unnoticeable, while the muted comparison between paint and cladding makes the Kona look more dignified. If youвЂ™re perhaps maybe not into dignity and prefer lots of flamboyance in your trip, go for the definitely Lime Twist paint. Spoiler alert: It is not available on every model.
All trim amounts into the 2020 Hyundai Kona lineup can be obtained with front-wheel or all-wheel drive. (maker photo)
