Having entered the market just two years ago, the cool and nimble Hyundai Kona has already cemented its place as a favorite in the subcompact crossover market. In fact, Edmunds.com lists the 2020 Kona as the number one X-Small SUV, ranking it higher than established competitors like the Honda HR-V, Subaru Crosstrek, and Mazda CX-3*. Drivers love the Kona for its unique style, fun-to-drive nature, long list of features, and versatile seating and cargo capacities. It's a perfect choice for Tallahassee and Crawfordville shoppers who want the utility and practicality of a crossover, but in a more maneuverable footprint. Here are a few of our favorite features:

Standard Infotainment

A good infotainment system is a sure way to increase the enjoyment of every ride. The 2020 Hyundai Kona comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Your favorite driving apps, like music and hands-free messaging and calls, are easily accessible via the touchscreen or intuitive voice commands. And, with Google and Apple Maps integration, following turn-by-turn directions and finding points of interest is easier than ever.

Versatile Interior

It may be a small crossover, but the Hyundai Kona offers big interior versatility, with comfortable seating for up to five people and plenty of head room throughout the cabin. With all the seats in use, there's still nearly 20 cubic-feet of space to spare behind the second row. The 60/40-split rear seats fold down, increasing max available cargo capacity to 45.8 cubic-feet. And, with a low lift over height and wide floor, loading and unloading are a breeze.

Hyundai Smart Sense

While we all strive to be safe and attentive drivers, having a little extra assistance is always a good thing. Hyundai's SmartSense advanced driver aids provide an extra degree of protection out on the road, with technologies that can help detect and avoid hazardous situations. For 2020, many of these features are standard. Hyundai SmartSense technologies include:

  • Standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Standard Driver Attention Warning
  • Standard Lane Keep Assist
  • Available Smart Cruise Control
  • Available High Beam Assist
  • Available Safe Exit Assist
  • Available Blind-Spot Collision Warning
  • Available Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Assist

An Enjoyable Drive

Limited and Ultimate models come standard with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. A purposefully tuned suspension, low ride height, and solid steering provide great handling, keeping Kona controlled and composed in the corners and on winding back roads. For improved traction and handling, all-wheel drive is available across the lineup, and comes with upgraded rear suspension and a lockable center differential.
