A mid-size crossover SUV market has recently been expanded to include another great vehicle. It’s the new 2019 Hyundai Kona under the larger Tucson and it’s one of the cheapest viaducts in the Hyundai range. The design is very eye-catching and fresh and the cabin is stylish and modern. Under the bonnet there are several options to choose from and it is equipped with four-wheel drive, with the off-road function is not in the foreground. The model year 2018 has just appeared on the market; however, the Japanese manufacturer has announced the latest 2019 Hyundai Kona.
With the wild appearance of Kona, there are rumors that something else would come. Hyundai has largely remained true to the language of the house, but the thin headlights, the short overhangs and the two-tone color of the Kona make a huge difference. The 2019 Hyundai Kona goes even further with a closed grille to improve aerodynamics.
In the cabin of the 2019 Hyundai Kona, the center console lacks a conventional circuit and instead a new electronic range selector switch. Buyers will also notice the larger touch screen and updated gauges. The available functions in the cabin include support for Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and wireless charging.
The 2019 Hyundai Kona will have the same engines as the model year, but there must also be some novelties. So let’s start with the traditional engines. The only option is a 2.0-liter Inline 4, which can make 147 horses and 132 pounds of torque. This unit is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It will reach 60 km / h in about 10 seconds and the top speed will be limited to 121 mph. The next option is a 1.6-liter turbo 4. This engine delivers 175 horsepower and 196 pound-foot torque. It is connected to a 7-speed automatic transmission with double clutch. It can go from 0 to 60 in 7.7 seconds and has the top speed of 131 mph. There will also be a 1.0-liter turbo-4 engine and a 1.6-liter turbo diesel 4 engine. On the other hand, we will also see an electric version of this model. If the latest rumors are true, the new 2019 Hyundai Kona will feature a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery that should provide a range of about 200 miles.
The 2019 Hyundai Kona from the year will arrive in the 4th quarter of 2018. Prices are far from over yet, but we expect the strike price to be at the top of the Kona gasoline-powered series, and $ 20,450 will start at $ 29,650 (including target cost).
