Review: 2018 Hyundai Kona

The 2018 Hyundai Kona is a brand new crossover vehicle arriving in the spring of 2018. It’s a small SUV with a starting MSRP of $19,500. The Kona is built for adventure with optional all wheel drive, a huge trunk area, and technology that keeps you safe and connected. 
The Kona has just arrived at Waikem Hyundai, so visit our Massillon showroom to see first-hand why it fits your lifestyle. 

Take it Anywhere
The Kona is the perfect vehicle for 2018. Today drivers want a safe comfortable ride, they want to easily connect to their phone, and they want great fuel economy. They also want their vehicle to help them get in touch with nature, and they also want to safely and easily fit their kids or pets in the back. 
Hyundai listened to your demands and created the Kona, the perfect modern vehicle. 
It’s an SUV, smaller than the Santa Fe Sport and Tucson, but bigger than sedans like the Elantra and Sonata. 
If you like to hike, camp, or kayak, the Kona is the perfect choice. It has a large trunk area where can easily store all of that gear, and the optional all wheel drive makes it easy to get to the dock, trail or camp site. 
It comes standard with a 2.0L engine under the hood, but you can upgrade to a 1.6L Turbo 4-cylinder for more power and better fuel economy. EPA estimates say the Kona maxes out at 33 MPG. 
Stay Connected
The Kona comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With these options, you can safely and easily stay connected to your phone. Make and take phone calls or text messages with Siri or OK Google voice commands. 
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it easy to use apps like maps, music, podcasts, audiobooks and others to stay entertained on the next road trip. 
Every Kona offers USB ports, and you can upgrade to add a wireless charging pad in the center console area. 
Stay Safe
The Kona offers all of Hyundai’s latest safety technology options:
  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection – Your Kona senses vehicles and pedestrians in your path and automatically initiates your brakes
  • Smart Cruise Control – Set a safe driving speed, and your Kona will automatically slow down to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. 
  • Blind Spot Detection – Provides audible and visual alerts if a vehicle is detected in the driver’s blind spot. 
  • Dynamic Bending Lights – Your headlights moved in sync with your vehicle to safely see road lines and more. 
  • Lane Departure Warning – Let’s you know when your vehicle is drifting out of its driving lane without signaling. 
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert – Similar to Blind Spot Detections, rear-cross traffic alerts warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side.
