2021 Hyundai Kona - Now Available
The Hyundai Kona has built up a following of loyal fans in the three years since its launch. Occupying a niche of its own on the border between subcompact SUV and city-friendly hatchback, it's a small car that boasts a big character. We now have the latest 2021 Hyundai Kona available for sale in Langley, and here's what makes it such a special and distinctive car.
Strong Highway Presence
Smaller SUVs can suffer from an anonymous, generic appearance, but the Kona has no such identity problems. Its bold lines, curved profile, and aerodynamic additions suggest a much larger car, giving the Kona a real presence and attitude on the highway.
Power Under the Hood
But the Kona is about much more than stylish looks. At the base level, there's a 2.0L four-cylinder engine making a respectable 147 horsepower and 132lb-ft of torque, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. This is a great configuration for daily driving, giving plenty of pep but with a healthy highway fuel economy of just 7.1L / 100km. However, moving up to the 1.6L turbo option boosts the output to 175 horsepower and 195lb-ft, giving an altogether more satisfying and exciting drive, while only dropping the fuel economy a little to 7.3L / 100km. And finally, the Kona has been designed from the ground up to offer a choice between gas or EV power, and the Kona Electric model provides a powerful output of 201 horsepower sustained over a range of up to 400km.
There's an impressive amount of space concealed within the Kona's compact frame. The second row seats two adults generously, or three smaller passengers in complete comfort. And to add to the spacious feeling, the Kona can carry up to 543L of cargo when fully filled with passengers, or up to 1,297L with the rear seats in the folded position.
All 2021 Kona models come with either a 7" or an 8" infotainment touchscreen, running Apple CarPlay and Android Auto software to link your smartphones directly into the system. The larger display also includes an in-built navigation function, complete with real-time traffic updates as you drive. Higher trims boost the tech levels even more, with an optional head-up display relaying essential information to the inside of the windshield, so that the driver can keep their eyes firmly on the road ahead.
Active Safety Systems
But the safety features don't end there. Along with earning full marks in all the industry-standard crash tests, the 2021 Kona comes fitted with a generous amount of active driver assist technology, with highlights including: - Automatic emergency braking at both front and rear. - Lane keeping assist. - Adaptive cruise control. - Driver attention monitor with alerts.
