Its small yet spacious and has AWD.

2018 Hyundai Kona

The kona offers a great deal of comfort and reliability. Even though I have a basic model it comes with Bluetooth for your phone, apple carplay which was a big contributor to the safety features while choosing this vehicle. There is one thing I would like to add sense I am a daily driver, would just be lumbar support. Overall this car is a perfect fit for people just like me who are active and like different weather climates. Most of all it is affordable. The Hyundai kona is playful and inexpensive, making it one of the more appealing subcompact SUVs on the market. I originally wanted a Subaru however they are a bit out of my price range and when going to the Hyundai dealership they sold me on their kona crossover. I love the backup camera and how smooth the car drives having AWD was a must. It is a reliable spacious vehicle and I look forward to growing into it more when the time comes to have a family, there is plenty of room in the back for car seats. The kona has serious get-up-and-go with the turbo engine, and you can get a metric ton of great features for under $30, 000. Hyundai's newcomer packs some pretty aggressive angles, but my eyes keep landing at certain spots. Split headlights are nothing new and are cool looking. Thankfully, the kona once again redeems itself with fuel economy. The epa says the 1. 6-liter, AWD kona will achieve 26 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. I am right about on par with city economy, but once I hit the highway, I see numbers in excess of 30 mpg with little conscious effort.

Has it is faults but I would recommend this car before anything American.

2018 Hyundai Kona

I like how tall I sit. The screen is higher up on the dash instead of being embedded low and I really like that since it makes looking at the screen for GPS and other purposes easier. It drives smooth and I am glad I have the option for AWD so I feel safe in slippery situations. The gas mileage is pretty good which is important in la. The car apple play is a great feature. Sometimes the port to plug in my phone for the apple play does not like working. I have tried different cables in case it was my problem, but I think it is the car. Overall I am extremely happy with the Kona and would recommend it to others.

I believe that its safety features will raise it above others.

2018 Hyundai Kona SE

I enjoy my Kona very much. It has features such as: seat warmers, sun roof, spacious, 4 door vehicle that is AWD. It is a very reliable car that I haven't had any problems with. It has a sport mode and also a normal mode. It also is equipped with auto lane assistance where it will let you know when you are drifting over the line without your blinker on. It also has a blind spot detector so when a car is in your blind spot it will notify you it is not safe to proceed. It also comes with a help that will tell you when the cars in front of you are stopped and you are traveling too quickly and to hit the brakes.
