Hyundai Kona Interior

2019 Kona Exterior: The Island Life

Inspired by the idyllic region of the same name, the 2019 Kona has the fresh looks and calming vibes to get you in the Aloha spirit. You'll turn heads on the roads with themed colors like Surf Blue, Lime Twist, Sunset Orange, and Thunder Gray. There's a shade for every style, mood, and personality.

This ride is certainly rugged, with SUV-like plastic cladding around the wheels. They emphasize the snazzy optional 18-inch rims, which make this crossover shine in profile. Choose the sleek floating roof on higher trim levels for an even more fluid, dynamic profile.

The Kona mixes things up in more ways than one: Its headlamps can be found lower on the bumper, while the narrow, birdlike LED daytime running lights are found on top. This role reversal gives the Kona a sharp look all its own.

All-Star Performance Specifications

The Hyundai Kona features two different gas-only powertrains. The standard engine, a 2.0L 4-cylinder, pairs with a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®, letting you shift in manual mode if you'd prefer. With this combination, the Kona generates up to 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.

While that's plenty of power to get you from Point A to Point B, the available turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder is even more lively. It mates with a 7-speed EcoShift® dual-clutch automatic transmission to crank out up to 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque-that's enough engine spirit to accelerate past other cars on the road. Plus, optional all-wheel drive (AWD) for every trim level gives you better contact with the road and keeps cornering under better control.

Creature Comfort: Interior Features

The 2019 Kona makes waves with its impressive selection of interior features. Some of those features, standard and available, include:

  • Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™
  • Hyundai Blue Link® Telematics
  • Heads-Up Display
  • 8-Way Power Driver's Seat with Power Lumbar

The available power lumbar feature will give your lower back the support it needs on longer adventures. Standard smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ means you can send texts, make calls, manage your music library, and more, all from the user-friendly 7- or 8-inch touchscreen!
