Utility vehicles - especially compact crossovers - are the hottest sellers in the automotive world lately, and it doesn't look like that's going to change in the new decade. The award-winning Hyundai Kona is a big part of the success of that segment. Its small size makes it easy to park, especially for urban drivers, yet it provides a surprising amount of cargo space. Unlike a lot of its competitors, the 2020 Hyundai Kona supplies plenty of desirable features even on its lower-level trims. Case in point, there's a driver attention warning on the base model and heated front seats on the next trim up, the SEL.

Trims and Powertrain


The 2020 Hyundai Kona is available in five trim levels: SE, SEL, SEL Plus, Limited, and Ultimate. The powertrain combination in the SE, SEL, and SEL Plus is a 174 horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Limited and Ultimate get a turbocharged 175 hp 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard across the board, and all-wheel drive with an advanced rear suspension design and a lockable center differential (which enhances traction at lower speeds in off-road and slick conditions) is available on all versions.



Comfort and Convenience


The base SE comes with a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, a rearview camera, and remote keyless entry. The SEL adds heated side mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, keyless entry with push-button ignition, rear privacy glass, roof rails, and heated front seats. The SEL Plus is enhanced with LED headlights, fog lights, a sunroof, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Limited and Ultimate get leather seating and automatic climate control.


Safety and Technology


Each of the Kona trims has some form of active safety technology, but those sought-after features are more plentiful the higher you go up the trim ladder. The SE's standard slate includes lane keeping assist, forward collision avoidance assist, and driver attention warning; there's also a blind-spot monitor integrated within the passenger-side mirror. The SEL and remaining trims add blind-spot collision warning, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic collision warning. The Ultimate earns its name by providing every available driver-assist feature, including pedestrian detection, a parking distance warning monitor, smart cruise control, and high beam assist.


A nice selection of tech is provided for each of the 2020 Hyundai Kona trims. With the SE, this includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two USB data ports, and Bluetooth hands-free capability. The SEL supplies satellite and HD radio, while the SEL Plus and Limited get a premium eight-speaker Infinity audio system, wireless smartphone charging, and Hyundai's Blue Link communications system. The Ultimate's multimedia amenities are sweetened with a head-up display (HUD), an 8-inch touchscreen, and integrated navigation.
