2019 North American SUV of the Year
Before we go any further, it’s important to note that the Kona was named North American SUV of the Year for 2019. This is one of the most prestigious awards a vehicle can win. A panel of automotive experts and journalists gather once a year and chose which vehicle is the best of the year, and Kona is the choice in 2019. 
Perfect Modern Crossover
This is the second year for the Hyundai Kona. It debuted to much fanfare in 2018, and now it’s one of the best-selling vehicles on the Waikem Auto Mile. It’s simple to see why. It is 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 you 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.
Safety Standard
In 2019, Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision Avoidance Alerts and Drive Attention Warnings are all standard on every Kona. 
These are sensors that monitor the traffic around you and work to keep you safer. You’ll be alerted of potential danger and collisions, and the Kona works harder to keep you safer. Each Kona also comes standard with a backup camera. 
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Standard
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.
Available All Wheel Drive
All wheel drive is available at every Hyundai Kona trim level. The Kona was built with adventure in mind, and it was engineered to keep you safe on a snowy road or a dirt road on the way to a camping trip. 
Comfort and Cargo Volume
The Kona comfortably seats 5 people. With all the seats up, you get 19.2 cubic feet of cargo volume. Fold the seats down and Kona has 45.8 cu. Ft. of cargo volume. Experts have voted the Kona one of the best vehicles for traveling with dogs or children. 
Kona engine and fuel economy
The Hyundai Kona comes standard with 2.0L engine that produces 147 horsepower. Fuel economy maxes out at 33 highway MPG on front wheel drive models and 30 on all wheel drive models. 
The second engine choice is a 1.6L turbocharged engine with 175 horsepower and up to 32 highway MPG. 
Get the Hyundai Kona you want by adding comfort/luxury features including heated cloth or leather seats, a sunroof, automatic temperature control, navigation, satellite radio and more.
