SmartSense Technologies

You can feel safe and secure with the Hyundai Kona. This compact SUV has a solid structure that was designed with impact resistance in mind. You also benefit from a full array of airbags, crumple zones, and other modern innovations. However, most impressive is the standard Hyundai SmartSense suite of 7 technologies.

These features work to monitor for potential dangers and warn you about them early. Among them is Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Driver Attention Warning, High Beam Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist. They act as extra eyes, ever watching for pitfalls you might not otherwise perceive until it is too late.

Engine Choices

You want powerful performance, but without burning through fuel excessively. That is precisely what you get with the Hyundai Kona.

What’s more, there are two petrol engines for you to choose between. You can get the 2.0 MPi engine paired up with a 6-speed transmission, which makes for a solid option. If you are in the mood for something sportier, select the 1.6 T-GDi with loads of torque, matched to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission for rapid shifts.

Head-Up Display

Let’s face it: looking down at the gauges in your vehicle means you are not paying attention to the road ahead. Sure, you can just glance down for a moment, but sometimes that is all it takes not to see a car that pulls out from a side road, a child that runs into the road after a ball, or so many other sudden hazards.

With so many technological innovations included in the Hyundai Kona, it has a solution to this problem. The head-up display positioned at the top of the dashboard allows you to glance at critical information, without looking away from the road. Quickly reference this simple screen for navigation instructions, vehicle speed, safety alerts, etc. It is so seamless and easy to use, you will wonder why such a thing does not come on all vehicles.

Spacious Interior

It might look small from the exterior, which makes parking the Hyundai Kona a breeze, but the interior offers plenty of practical space. All five seats boast loads of room, so everyone can indeed stretch out and get comfortable, even during long drives.

Behind the second row is a large cargo area. If you need to transport something particularly long or large, the rear seats are on a split so that you can fold down part or the entire row. This is a vehicle that will flex with your lifestyle, instead of slowing you down.
