2020 Hyundai Kona at Apple Valley Hyundai
Comfortable and compliant with a modest size, the 2020 Hyundai Kona is one of the best urban environment vehicles around. Easily able to slip through traffic and slide into small parking spots, the Kona is even better on the highway thanks to its decent 147-horsepower engine. If that is not enough power for you, you can opt for the 175 horsepower turbocharged engine which is available for higher trims. The engine gives you a significant advantage in torque, giving it a swift acceleration to enhance the Kona's agile handling. The Kona also gives you the option of all-wheel drive and independent rear suspension to provide the Kona with a smooth ride.

What engines are there to choose from?
Two gasoline-powered engines are available for the 2020 Kona. The SE, SEL, and SEL Plus trims come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque which pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission. Limited and Ultimate trims come with a slick 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The engine gives the Kona a swift acceleration while also enhancing the fun of driving the Kona. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel-drive is an option for those who tend to drive on slick roads and lousy weather.
What are the notable features of the 2020 Kona?
Even with the base-level SE, the Kona brings you an excellent array of features including a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, 16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, and dual front USB inputs. There is also a ton of active safety features for the Kona SE, including a system that monitors for distracted driving, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist. Stepping up to the SEL adds blind-spot monitoring, heated front seats, push-button start, roof rails, rear privacy glass, heated side mirrors, and a hidden cargo compartment. Higher-level trims come with an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, power sunroof, fog lights, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, Infinity premium audio system, leather interior, automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control, and rear parking sensors. Also coming standard on the SEL Plus and above is Hyundai's Blue Link system that allows you to control and monitor functions such as locking the vehicle from your phone.
What are some of the safety features?
The all-new standard Hyundai SmartSense safety technologies on the Kona give you additional protection for drivers and passengers. Included in this package is a Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist which uses the front-facing camera and radar system to help detect an impending collision and either avoids the impact or minimizes the damage through automatic braking. A Lane Keeping Assist system helps prevent accidental lane departure and can even steer the car if it's required. If you go with the Ultimate trim, you will get a newly-developed Smart Cruise Control feature which functions as a conventional cruise control system and adds radar sensors to help the car maintain a fixed distance behind vehicles in front.
