Small crossover SUVs pair useful utility with a nimble footprint, and they’re especially appealing to drivers who face congested city streets. Introduced for the 2018 model year, the Hyundai Kona is a small crossover that features distinctive styling, appealing safety and technology content and pleasant handling. Available all-wheel drive makes this Hyundai a good choice for those who face rough weather.
2018 to Present: Hyundai Kona
The Kona is a subcompact crossover SUV that seats five, and the current generation arrived in dealerships in 2018. The Kona comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is optional.
There is an adventurous, outdoorsy aesthetic reflected in the Kona’s sheet metal. With its low, wide stance and armor-like body panels, the crossover looks rugged and aggressive. Lively color choices and options such as a color-contrasting roof help the Kona stand out in a crowd. Base models greet the pavement with alloy wheels, and standard LED headlamps are on hand to light your path during nighttime travels.
This Hyundai’s cabin has the same bold themes as its exterior. A pleasantly chunky steering wheel faces the driver, and the interior features assertive styling cues and bright color accents. The cabins in some subcompact SUVs can feel confining, but the Kona’s interior has a layout that gives it an open, airy look.
The Kona offers the accommodating ride quality modern drivers expect. A drive mode selector allows you to tailor the vehicle’s performance to suit your intentions, and choices include Economy, Normal and Sport. Base trims come with a naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, while upper trims are motivated by a more powerful turbocharged engine that delivers pleasantly peppy acceleration.
Base Kona crossovers are equipped with amenities such as cloth upholstery, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, Bluetooth connectivity, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay smartphone integration and a six-speaker sound system. Numerous upgrades are offered, and the list includes amenities such as rain-sensing windshield wipers and satellite radio.
In the past, subcompact models offered less driver-assistive technology than larger cars, but the Kona is proof that times have changed. This Hyundai’s list of optional driver-assistive amenities is generous, and it includes features such as a blind-spot monitor, lane-keeping assist and a driver-drowsiness monitor.
The Kona isn’t the only small crossover that sets itself apart with its spunky, flamboyant appearance. Drivers seeking a vehicle that fits this description should cross-shop models like the Nissan Juke and Toyota C-HR. However, its extensive feature content helps make the Hyundai Kona a compelling choice for shoppers who are drawn to its youthful design cues.
