2019 Hyundai Kona Review

With its low wide stance and protective urban armor the Hyundai Kona is a stylish functional compact crossover that’s ready to take on city streets back-country roads and everything in between. Choose from four models the SE SEL Limited and the top-of-the-line Ultimate. ?The Kona is small enough on the outside to make crowded city streets and tiny parking spots easy. But with over 113 cubic feet of interior volume it’s big enough on the inside for five people to fit comfortably. ?Two engine choices and all-wheel drive are available so you can go just about anywhere—in just about any kind of weather. And with up to 33 miles per gallon you can really get away. ?Wherever you go Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability mean you’ll stay connected. And Hyundai Smart Sense driver-assist features mean you’ll stay protected. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Kona that’s all yours. The Hyundai Kona. It’s the perfect size for any adventure.

Whether it’s a truck ahead of you a motorcycle next to you or a car coming down the street when you’re backing out of your driveway there’s danger everywhere.
