What's New For The Hyundai Kona?

Now, the Hyundai Kona remains a shining star in one of the world's most popular lineup of SUVs. The Kona gets minor changes this year to its list of standard and available equipment. The top trim level, called the Kona Ultimate, features adaptive cruise control as well.

All the while, you can sit back and relax knowing that numerous interior amenities make it safe, fun, and enjoyable to drive. Not surprisingly, the 2020 Kona earns the honors of "North American Utility Vehicle of the Year."
