With expressive body cladding and a two-tone roof, the 2018 Hyundai KONA stands out from the crowd. Adding to its visual flair is muscular wheel arches, aggressive LED headlights, sporty alloy wheels, and even a rear spoiler all contribute to a design that won’t soon be forgotten. And best for all, the KONA comes in a wide range of colours, from Tangerine Comet to Phantom Black, to suit your personal sense of style!
Despite its diminutive size, the KONA has been cleverly engineered to maximize interior space. That’s why the KONA comes standard with features like 60/40 split-folding rear seats so you can stuff everything you need into the back. There’s also two cup holders front and rear plus four bottle holders in the doors to hold all your energy drinks and coffee without spilling. The KONA even includes standard roof rails so you can attached ski boxes, bike carriers, and anything else you want to take along for the ride.
The 2018 Hyundai KONA comes with your choice of two engines – both of which expertly blend power and fuel efficiency. The standard engine is a 2.0L unit making 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque and is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC control should you wish to take the reins yourself. Those seeking extra performance will love the 1.6L turbocharged GDI engine making a copious 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission this powerplant returns an excellent 8.6L/100km combined, while the standard 2.0L engine returns a thrifty 7.9L/100km combined.
Your safety is a top priority here at Hyundai, which is why the KONA can be equipped with advanced safety systems like Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist which helps you maintain your lane. There’s also Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist which monitors your blind spots and sounds an alert should you attempt to change lanes while a vehicle is in said blind spot. Finally there’s Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection that can automatically apply the brakes should an imminent collision be detected.
The new KONA keeps you connected, even when on the move! Tech like a standard 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a wireless charging pad all ensure you never miss a moment. Additional features like heated front seats, a proximity key with push-button start, and a premium Infinity sound system are just icing on the cake. Throw in additions like a power sunroof, a 8-inch Heads-Up Display, and rain-sensing windshield wipers, and you have yourself a fully-equipped SUV that’s ready for whatever life throws at it.
The Kona was made to be accessorized, which is why our Parts Department offers a huge selection of accessories such as hitch-mounted bike carriers, roof rail ski/snowboard carriers, Multimedia Device Holders for your iPad or Kindle, and even an aggressive Skirt Package which ups the visual flair of your Kona beyond stock!
