Performance Capabilities of the Kona

The 2.0L 4-cylinder base engine produces 147 horsepower, which is great for those who do a lot of city driving. It's also incredibly fuel-efficient, receiving an EPA-estimated 27 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. The available 4-cylinder turbocharged engine provides more power to drivers, along with more torque. It produces 175 horsepower, better for those who do a lot of highway driving.

The available on-demand all-wheel drive enhances stopping power, with large front and rear disc brakes. The multi-link rear suspension works to improve handling by keeping the rear tires more firmly planted on the road surface, whatever it may be. When heading up a hill or incline, the Hill-start Assist Control technology is able to accelerate without the car rolling backwards. Meanwhile, Downhill Brake Control can help maintain stable brakes when you're going down a steep decline.

Step Inside the 2018 Hyundai Kona

Once you're settled into the cabin, you won't want to leave it. The Kona delivers an outstanding experience, with seating for five people. The available 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat offers lumbar support, while the available leather seating looks good and feels even better.

The 60/40 split-folding rear seats provide flexibility when it comes to passengers and cargo. If the rear seats are folded down flat, the cargo floor can fit in objects of all different shapes and sizes. There's 19.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, enough room for hiking equipment, some beach chairs, and a cooler. Overall, there's about 46 cubic feet of cargo space inside the Kona.

Safety Features Helping You

It's nice to have a friend by your side in the car with you, even if they aren't human. That's where the safety features inside the Hyundai Kona come into play. It starts with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which uses radar and a camera to detect pedestrians and large objects ahead of the Kona. Automatic braking and a warning will let you know if the vehicle is anticipating a collision.

Other safety features include Driver Attention Warning, which will provide an alert if the system detects driver fatigue or inattention, and Lane Keeping Assist, which monitors the way the vehicle is moving and applies corrective steering if necessary.
