Hyundai Kona

When Hyundai launched its new subcompact SUV Kona, they labeled it as today’s crossover “urban armor” styling, which is both eye-catching and brash for this very competitive subcompact SUV market.  Job well done Hyundai and you can see the results with the friendly folks at Hiley Hyundai located at 320 N. Burleson Blvd in Burleson, TX or by calling the dealership at 817.945.9000 and be ready to take your expectations for a spin.

You could say that Hyundai designed this little SUV for the “young at heart”.  The Kona comes with very attractive front and short rear overhangs in its wide and assertive stance.  This handsome exterior styling stands out from the rest of the pack as its design is something different with Kona’s attractive lime green paint and black accents.

Motor Trend said recently: “The combination of Hyundai’s cascading grille with the slim LED lights provides a stunning curbside approach-something this segment needs desperately.”  In other words this new Kona is a head turner.  At first glance you will agree as the Kona is dashing in its own way and will attract attention wherever it travels.  It also promises to be as much fun to drive as it is to be seen in.  Delivering that fun factor in your drive times and living under the Kona’s handsome hood is a perky 2.0-liter four cylinder.  This naturally aspirated engine delivers nearly 150 lively horses and is mated to a six-speed automatic.

If you desire more zip in your trips, then also test the Ultimate model that comes with an energetic 1.6-liter turbo four banger that releases 175 horses and 195 lb-ft of asphalt grabbing torque.  This setup is paired to a smooth shifting seven speed dual-clutch automatic that is tuned perfectly with a crisp throttle response.  To increase that fun factor feeling slip your Kona into the Sport mode.  This makes the throttle response even better and the shorter gears hold revs longer to make your time behind its sportier steering wheel a more engaging driving experience especially with the All-Wheel Drive system.

The Kona’s chassis is poised giving you plenty of confidence on those winding country roads and zipping through urban traffic. The driver-friendly cabin comes with comfy seats and an abundance of room and technology.  The Kona’s highly rated user-friendly infotainment system has a 7 or 8-inch touch screen that works well with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.  Everything you desire for communication and entertainment.  The available cargo space has nearly 20 cubic feet with the rear seat up and over 45 cubic feet with the rear seat down.

Everything just comes together with the new Hyundai Kona.  If you are searching for a stylish, sub-compact crossover, then you really need to put the Kona on the top of your list.  You will not be disappointed and no better time than now.
