Why Buy the 2018 Hyundai Kona

Hyundai spent the mid-2000s to early-2010s refining its SUV line-up, eventually possessing the ability to provide some of the best entries in the market. With its reputation for making handsomely equipped, fuel-efficient, and generously warrantied SUVs well in place, the South Korean automaker introduced the Kona in June 2017. Named after the western district of the island of Hawai'i, it is the smallest SUV from Hyundai. The vehicle is based on the compact Elantra sedan platform, thus giving it sedan-like driving quality and efficiency. At the same time, it adopts sport utility exterior styling and interior room, resembling a mini version of the automaker's compact Tucson SUV. Add a reasonable price range, and it's easy to see the new automobile as a very attractive package. The 2018 model is split into SE, SEL, Limited, and Ultimate trims.

2018 Hyundai Kona l Oak Lawn Illinois - Overview

Exterior - Reasons Why Buy the Kona

This 2018 vehicle uses a unibody construction, which enforces integrity and sturdiness compared to putting pieces together on a frame. The sheet metal comprises 75 percent of hot-stamped high- or ultra-high-strength steel for durability and reduced body weight. The headlights can automatically switch on or off depending on the amount of outdoor light available. Added if you go with the SEL are roof side rails for extra luggage-carrying capability, turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Limited and Ultimate upgrade the nameplate with LED headlights and taillights for brighter and longer-lasting illumination, fog lights for better lighting in hard-to-see driving conditions, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Although it is classified as a subcompact crossover SUV, the 2018 Hyundai Kona comes with two rows of seats to accommodate up to five people. Heated front seats are standard on the SEL trim on up, and the Limited and Ultimate trims get leather upholstery and 8-way power adjustability with lumbar support on the driver's seat. Standard features on the subcompact crossover include cruise control, Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, remote keyless entry, Android Auto™ & Apple CarPlay™ for smartphone-based control, and a 7-inch LCD touchscreen display.

Proximity key entry (which enables access by physical closeness to the vehicle, rather than by key fob) and push-button engine start appear on the SEL and up. With the Limited, the vehicle is further enhanced with automatic climate control, a power tilt-and-slide moonroof, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror for reducing headlight glare from behind you. Unique to the top-level Ultimate are 8-inch LCD touchscreen navigation, a head-up display for driver information and reducing distraction, wireless device charging ability, an Infinity® Premium Audio System, and a trial Blue Link® Connected Car Service subscription that provides functions such as roadside assistance, remote start, and monthly vehicle health monitoring.

Mechanical / Powertrain - Request More Information

At the base level, this SUV uses a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine, which generates 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. The Limited, though, uses a smaller yet turbocharged 1.6-liter I4 that generates 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Each engine is joined with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, with the option of going with an all-wheel-drive system for enhanced traction. If the vehicle has a front-wheel drivetrain, the rear suspension has a trailing torsion beam design; and if it's all-wheel drive, there's a multi-link rear suspension. Combined with MacPherson struts on the front, the rear suspension helps in cushioning you from road turbulence.

Safety - Why Buy with Safety Features

Standard safety features on this subcompact SUV include electronic vehicle stability control for maintaining the correct driving path, LED daytime running lights to increase conspicuity, traction control to optimize tire grip with the road, a remote keyless entry system with an alarm as a theft-deterrent mechanism, and a network of airbags for cushioning and restraint in a collision. Blind spot collision warning with lane change assist, as well as lane keep assist with driver attention warning, are added on the SEL or higher. Forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection is exclusive to the Ultimate trim. New to the subcompact segment-and making its debut here-is driver-drowsiness warning technology, which monitors lateral movement in the lane, lane drift, and sudden steering inputs to arouse your awareness when needed.
