The crossover segment is a competitive one, and the 2019 Hyundai Kona easily holds its own. With its compact size, sporty looks, and tech-savvy interior, the Hyundai Kona thrives in urban settings — and it’s ready for open-road adventure, too.
The 2019 Hyundai Kona is available in five trim levels: Essential, Preferred, Luxury, Trend, and Ultimate. The Essential and Preferred trim levels come standard with front-wheel drive, while the other three come standard with all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is still optional for the Essential and Preferred trim levels, though.
Powertrain and Performance
When you purchase the 2019 Hyundai Kona, the engine you receive depends on the trim level you choose. The Essential, Preferred, and Luxury trims come standard with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that comes paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain puts out 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.
The Trend and Ultimate trim levels come standard with a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This engine comes paired with a seven-speed EcoShift® dual-clutch transmission, delivering 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
Inside, the 2019 Hyundai Kona boasts a modern yet elegant design that will make both you and your passengers feel relaxed on the go. Despite the compact dimensions of the Kona, there is plenty of space to stretch out, which is ideal for road trips out of the city. The Kona’s interior even has a quirky side — you can opt for either a lime or red colour package, which highlights the trim throughout the cabin. When it comes to cargo space, the Kona offers 544 litres when the rear seats are up. This number grows to 1,296 litres when you fold the rear seats down.
Standard and Available Features
The Kona offers a range of standard and available features, depending on the trim level you choose. For instance, the base Essential trim comes standard with LED Daytime Running Lights, power-adjustable and heated sideview mirrors, heated front seats, rearview camera, Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, Bluetooth®, and a 7-inch touch-screen display.
As you move up the trim levels, you will find available features like rain-sensing windshield wipers; leather upholstery; SiriusXM™ satellite radio; a Head-Up Display; an 8-inch touch screen; wireless charging; and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Kona also offers safety technologies like Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, and Parking Distance Warning – Reverse.
