Standard Equipment

There are four trim levels of the '19 Kona: the base SE, SEL, Limited, and Ultimate. Standard equipment on the lowest level is highlighted by sophisticated active safety technology rear-view monitor with park assist, lane keeping assist, forward collision avoidance, and driver attention warning). The SEL adds roof rails, heated front seats, a blind-spot monitor, lane change assist, and heated side mirrors. More premium options are added to the Limited: leather seating, projector headlights, automatic climate control, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. At the top, the Ultimate earns its name with standard features that include high beam assist, an upgraded 8-inch infotainment system with navigation, wireless device charging, and a vehicle information display with a 4.2-inch color screen. Fans of comics will be tickled to know that there's an Iron Man Special Edition, through a collaboration with Marvel. It boasts special graphics and colors (red and dark grey) and a Stark Industries interface on the navigation system.

Engines and Fuel Economy

The two lower trims of the 2019 Kona get the base engine, a 147 hp four-cylinder that's mated to a six-speed SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission. This pairing achieves an EPA-rated 27 city mpg/33 highway mpg with front-wheel drive; the AWD models with the base engine get 25 mpg around town and 30 on the highway.

A 175 hp inline four turbo engine powers the two higher trims (Limited and Ultimate), in conjunction with a seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch automatic transmission. This powertrain gets up to 28 city mpg and 32 on the highway with FWD; the figures for the AWD versions are 26 city and 29 highway).

Safety and Technology

One of the biggest selling points of this sophomore version of the Kona is the slew of active safety technologies that come standard: a rear-view camera, lane keep assist, forward collision-avoidance assist, and driver attention warning. Even more of these safety features are added as the trim levels rise: rear cross-traffic collision warning, lane-change assist, and blind-spot collision warning. There is a full array of airbags inside, including side-curtain ones with rollover sensors. The body features integrated crumple zones and bodyside reinforcements to provide a more protective shell for the occupants when a crash can't be avoided.

An audio/communication/information system comes standard with a 7-inch color touchscreen and two USB jacks (one data port and one for charging) on the first three trims; it's set up to receive Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Ultimate trim swaps that system out for a larger screen (8 inches) and integrated navigation. The audio system is upgraded to premium Infinity edition on the Limited and Ultimate. This system - along with a shark-fin antenna, fog lights, a power sunroof, power driver's seat with lumbar support, and Hyundai Blue Link Connected Car Service - can be added to the SEL trim with the purchase of the Tech Package for SEL.
