In 2018, the KONA made its debut as Hyundai’s first subcompact SUV in North America. Now, a year later, the breakthrough vehicle continues to win-over both buyers and experts with its eye-catching styling and lively demeanor. Here are a few interesting facts to help you become acquainted with the 2019 Hyundai KONA.

Fun facts about the 2019 Hyundai KONA

There’s a lot to know – and a lot to love – about the 2019 Hyundai KONA. A few fun facts about the subcompact SUV include the following:

  1. Five trim levels are available

With five trim levels available, there’s a Hyundai KONA for just about everyone. Variants include Essential, Preferred, Luxury, Trend and Ultimate. Naturally, all models build on the entry-level Essential, with more features being offered as you move up the ladder.

The base model offers a generous list of vital features, such as a touch-screen infotainment system and heated front seats, along with great value. Meanwhile, the top-tier Ultimate model comes standard with goodies such as a turbocharged engine, all-wheel drive and a full suite of driver assistance functions.

  1. The KONA is an award-winner

Experts know a good thing when they see it. That’s why the Hyundai KONA has taken home many honors, including:

  • The 2019 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year Award.
  • Best subcompact SUV during Car and Driver’s 2019 10 Best Trucks and SUVs award ceremony.
  • Best Subcompact SUV for the Money by U.S. News and World Report.

That’s an impressive list of achievements – especially for a vehicle introduced just a year ago.

  1. You can choose two-tone colouring

The Hyundai KONA features distinctive styling that’s unlike anything else on the road. Dynamic design cues, such as a cascading front grille and muscular wheel arches, adorn every model.

Kona’s unique look can be further enhanced with a two-tone colour option. The feature, which adds a distinct trim colour to the roof and wheel arches, allows you to make the SUV your own – and stand out wherever you go. A similar concept is applied to the cabin via a Colour package that adds dual colours to the interior trim.

  1. Wireless device charging is onboard

Tired of scrounging for that phone charger under the seat? Not to worry; the Hyundai KONA features available wireless charging. The charging pad, located in the center console, lets you charge your devices chord-free.

  1. There’s an electric version

That’s right – the 2019 Hyundai KONA is also available as a plug-in electric vehicle. Advanced battery technology provides the electrified SUV with a range of up to 415 kilometres on a single charge. And that’s something to think about if you want to avoid the fueling station.

Additional highlights include a battery temperature management system (ideal for Canadian winters) and a heat pump system that reduces cold weather range decline.
