Why haven't I heard about the Hyundai Kona before?

If you haven't heard of the Hyundai Kona yet, that's because it's a brand-new vehicle for the 2018 model year! It's a sub-compact SUV so it offers tons of extra space but many driving qualities similar to that of a sedan. It also offers a raised ride height that many buyers will love. With its small body, it's great for urban areas with tight and narrow roadways. The Kona offers a standard tablet-like touchscreen on top of the dashboard that gives the Kona a unique and modern look. If you haven't heard of the Kona before, you're definitely going to know and love it now!

What powertrain options will be available for the 2018 Hyundai Kona?

There will be two engine options for the all-new 2018 Hyundai Kona. The base-level engine will be standard across the lineup and is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. It generates 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque-a hefty sum for a small SUV. This engine comes paired with a six-speed automatic. Alternatively, there is a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can put out 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes standard with a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. This powertrain is available for Limited and Ultimate trim levels (the top two trims in the lineup). The Kona will be available with all-wheel drive.

What are some features I could expect to see within the 2018 Hyundai Kona?

There will be four well-equipped trim levels for the new Hyundai Kona: SE, SEL, Limited, and Ultimate. Highlights and features of the base SE trim level include 16-inch alloy wheels, full Bluetooth connectivity, an impressive 7-inch touchscreen, cruise control, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Venturing into the SEL trim level will add larger 17-inch wheels, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, keyless entry and ignition, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. If you want extra safety, the SEL is available with forward collision warning and mitigation. Limited models will provide LED headlights, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a sunroof, even larger 18-inch wheels, and a premium audio system. The top-of-the-line Ultimate trim level boasts a head-up display, an 8-inch touchscreen with a navigation system, a wireless charging pad, automatic high beams and wipers, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning and mitigation, a driver attention alert system, lane keep assist, and Hyundai's Blue Link emergency telematics system.

Final Thoughts on the 2018 Hyundai Kona

The Hyundai Kona of 2018 will be completely loaded with all the features a new car buyer could want. A fully-loaded Kona Ultimate is expected to cost under $30,000 which will make the Kona incredibly affordable and competitive.
