What to Expect in the 2021 Hyundai Kona

The 2021 Hyundai Kona gets a rave review as a small yet practical SUV that is fun to look at and even more fun to drive. This value-packed SUV offers a great amount of technology for its low price tag, as well as an option between front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) models for drivers who might need to travel in less-than-ideal weather conditions.


What to Expect



Built to be small but mighty, the 2021 Hyundai Kona is built for easy manoeuvrability in urban environments, but it also performs well on the open road. In a review of the vehicle, it is easy to see why it outranks such class staples as the Subaru Crosstrek, Kia Soul, and Mazda CX-30.





Comfort and convenience feature prominently inside the 2021 Hyundai Kona. A standard 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system sits atop the Kona's dashboard, offering easy access and intuitive operation. A larger 8.0-inch touchscreen comes standard on the Ultimate model, which also adds in navigation. Standard on all models is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, offering quick and simple smartphone connectivity.





Hyundai has long been at the top of the safety game, and the 2021 Kona is no different. It received a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and was named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Several driver-assist features come standard, such as automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and a driver-attention monitor.





The 2021 Hyundai Kona comes standard with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 147 horsepower and is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. For drivers that have a need for speed, upper trim levels offer a turbocharged 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It offers 0 to 97 km/h acceleration of just 6.6 seconds.





Small yet practical, the 2021 Hyundai Kona offers great interior specs, including 2,664 litres of passenger volume and 544 litres of cargo capacity behind the second row. The Kona also offers comfortable seats, good ergonomics, and quality materials that blend together in a design of quirky refinement.


The exterior is also quirky with a confident and sturdy look that allows it to stand apart from other small SUVs. As fun to look at as it is fun to drive, the Kona features alloy wheels, LED headlights, roof side rails, and a rear spoiler.
