2018 Hyundai Kona: The New Kid on the Block

The Hyundai Kona has just arrived on the market, but it’s been the talk of the street for a while. A new entry-level model for the Hyundai SUV family, which features the redesigned Tucson and Santa Fe models, the new Kona offers a roomy interior with compact dimensions perfectly suited to the city.

Available in seven versions, the Kona is sure to meet a variety of needs. The entry-level model also offers a long list of equipment despite its reasonable price. Let's take a closer look.

Two Engines for the 2018 Hyundai Kona

The 2018 Hyundai Kona stands out in many ways, especially when you consider what’s under the hood. The new Kona is the only sub-compact SUV to offer two engines. It will also be available with a 100 % electric engine.

The first engine is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. When paired with a six-speed automatic, you get a SUV that has more power than the majority of its rivals.

The other option available in the Kona family is a 1.6-litre turbo four-cylinder engine that produces 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Imagine a 175 horsepower turbo engine in such a small vehicle! The result will surpass your expectations, as the Kona’s turbo engine delivers impressive accelerations for an SUV.

In addition, this engine is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic that ensures a level of performance worthy of a race car.

In terms of interior space, you get 544 litres of cargo space in the Kona, while nearly 1,300 litres is available when the rear seats are lowered.
