Hyundai Kona All-New Compact SUV

The Hyundai Kona, with an all-new compact SUV platform developed for the Kona, will offer a 147 horsepower 2.0-liter MPI Atkinson engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission or the 175 horsepower Gamma 1.6T-GDI engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Safety features include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assist and Driver Attention Warning. The car’s radar systems also assist with the Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Collison Warning. Different rear suspension systems have been developed for both 2WD and 4WD. The Kona will go on sale in Korea later this month, followed by North America and Europe.
