Vehicle Overview

Hyundai calls the Kona a "smart utility vehicle," and it more than lives up to its name. Keffer Hyundai is serving Matthews Charlotte Monroe customers with a rundown of the changes available on the new 2020 Hyundai Kona. Your 2019 Hyundai Kona was already a terrific SUV, but in 2020, you'll see a few slight changes to the vehicle that make it worth another look. If you passed over the 2019 Hyundai Kona, it may be time to give it another chance. You'll find it's now equipped with features that were left off before, and many higher trim features are now available on lower, more affordable, trims.

Matthews NC - 2020 Hyundai Kona's Overview

Exterior - 2020 Hyundai Kona

The exterior of the 2020 Kona remains virtually unchanged from the 2019 year, but that makes good sense. This is a relatively new model, and you don't want to see big, sweeping changes to its style just yet. What you have is one of the most enticing SUV exteriors of the 2020 season. Your Kona features design choices like Power tilt-and-slide sunroof, LED headlights, and curves galore. You'll find other exterior features like Front foglights and 19-inch alloy wheels standard on some trims, optional on others.

Interior - 2020 Hyundai Kona in Matthews NC

Leather seating surfaces are available on the Limited and Ultimate, with soft, plushy cloth available on the three standard trims. Both of these options were available in 2019, of course, but you'll find that leather seating is available on a lower trim this year, making it more affordable. Technology upgrades are plentiful, too, thanks to the 4.2-inch color display and wireless smartphone charging pad that is now available on the SEL Plus.

Mechanical - Hyundai Kona specs in Matthews

Horsepower on the Kona ranges from 147 horsepower to 175 horsepower, depending on whether or not you choose the turbocharged engine option. You'll find it's standard on the Limited and Ultimate, and it also gets you 195 lbs-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® is standard on the first three trims, but on the Limited and Ultimate, you get a silky smooth 7-speed EcoShift® dual clutch transmission for optimal shifts. For a vehicle in this price range, you won't find a more suitable, or impressive, mechanical design. Hyundai really put a lot of love into the new Kona, and don't forget, there's an electric Kona available, too, that gets 258 miles on a single charge.

Safety - 2020 Hyundai Kona dealer

The 2020 Kona features more standard safety features than the 2019 model featured, and that's only fair. Hyundai has a responsibility to customers to give them their all in terms of safety features, especially modern driver-assist features that actually help to prevent crashes. When driving your Kona, you'll have confidence all the way thanks to features like Advanced dual front airbags with Occupant Classification System, Front and rear roof-mounted side-curtain airbags with rollover sensors, and Electronic Stability Control with Traction Control and Brake Assist. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, and Smart Cruise Control are just a few of the other driver-assist features that are going to give you an especially keen sense of well-being while driving your Kona. Hyundai left nothing out here in 2020, and we're thankful to represent a brand that cares so much about the safety of its customers. We'd like to point out that the 2019 model was also very, very safe, but in 2020, you're going to get more standard safety features, and that means a lot to most of our customers. If you have to choose on the basis of safety, choose the 2020 Kona.
