Introducing the 2018 Hyundai Kona

The entirely new 2018 Kona is an exciting small SUV that guarantees tons of fun. Built to Hyundai's standards of reliability and driving enjoyment, the Kona is styled aggressively and offers a bold and functional interior. Equipped to handle your active lifestyle, Kona is as at home on country backroads as it is on city streets.

Style & Capability
The Kona was built to turn heads with its sporty, unique exterior. Anyone who sees the funky headlight setup knows they're in for something different and fresh. Step inside the Kona and you'll be greeted with a stylish, futuristic-looking interior that's packed with cool tech, including an available heads-up display, a 7-inch color touchscreen with Rear View Monitor that comes standard, and a class-exclusive available wireless device charging dock that you won't find in any of Kona's competitors.

When you need extra grip on the road due to weather conditions, the Kona's available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) gives you the traction you need to help you safely get to your destination. Equipped to handle any road condition, the Kona's multi-link rear suspension boosts handling by keeping the rear tires more firmly planted on the road surface.

Warranty & Safety
Eye-catching looks and surprisingly powerful performance might not mean a lot without peace of mind. Since it's a Hyundai, the Kona comes with the unbeatable America's Best Warranty, which offers 10 years and 100,000 miles of coverage. Not only that, Kona is jam-packed with available high-tech safety features like Lane Keeping Assist, Blind-Spot Collision Warning, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. No matter where Kona takes you, Hyundai's got you covered. 

The Kona offers two different engine options:
  • 2.0L Inline 4-cylinder - This engine provides 147 horsepower and achieves up to a gas-sipping 33 MPG Highway* (FWD).  It is paired with Hyundai's 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC.
  • 1.6L Turbo Inline 4-cylinder - This upgraded, turbocharged 4-cylinder churns out an impressive 175 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque, and is paired with Hyundai's 7-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch automatic transmission, which achieves an impressive 32 MPG Highway* (FWD).

Kona comes in four trims so you can find the perfect one to take you on your journeys:

  • SEL - When you upgrade to this trim, you get heated front seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, Blind-Spot Collision Warning with Lane Change Assist, Proximity Key with push button start, external temperature display, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and shift knob.

  • Ultimate - Aptly named, this loaded model boasts an Infinity premium audio system with Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology, an external amp and 8 speakers (2 front-door-mounted speakers, 2 tweeters, 2 rear speakers, center front, and subwoofer. It also includes premium touches like the futuristic heads-up display and wireless device charging, Blue Link Connected Car System, as well as safety features such as Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, and Parking Distance Warning.
Built with safety as well as fun in mind, the Kona has a host of available safety features to keep you zipping around with confidence:
  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning - If this available system detects another vehicle in your blind spot, it gives you audible and visual alerts.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning - When your Kona is in reverse, this available system warns you of vehicles approaching from either side.
  • Lane Keeping Assist - This available feature monitors your Kona's position and can apply corrective steering assistance to keep you safely in your lane.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection - This available technology can detect pedestrians, large objects, and vehicles (moving or stationary) in the Kona's path. When a collision is imminent, an audible warning and automatic braking are activated to help avoid a crash.
  • Driver Attention Warning - The Kona is the only vehicle in its class to offer this available feature, which analyzes your driving patterns and if it detects fatigue or inattention, it gives you an audible tone or visual alert.
You'll love the high-tech features that Kona offers. They include:
  • Wireless Device Charging - After using this available feature, you'll immediately wonder how you ever went without it. Just set your compatible device on the pad in the center console and it starts charging - no wires needed. Kona is the only vehicle in its class to offer this system.
  • Rear View Monitor with Parking Guidance - Standard on every Kona, the 7-inch or optional 8-inch touchscreen gives you a view when you're backing up, and also shows parking guidance lines to help you park like a pro valet.
  • Heads-Up Display - This available futuristic feature can only be described as "too cool." It projects important information drivers need on a pop-up transparent cluster just inside Kona's windshield. This lets you stay tuned into your speed, navigation, cruise control, and safety features without ever taking your eyes off the road, which makes for a stress-free trip no matter how far the distance.
  • Blue Link - This available service lets you securely start your Kona, set climate control to cool or heat the cabin, or even defrost your windshield from anywhere you can use your smartphone. If you're in an accident, it can send an automatic collision notification and request emergency assistance. Better yet, Blue Link® Connected Car Service is complimentary for three years when you purchase the Ultimate trim.
