The 2019 Hyundai Kona in Leesburg FL

Get to Know the Impressive 2019 Hyundai Kona Subcompact Crossover

The Hyundai Kona was a new arrival to the Hyundai lineup during the 2018 model year, and it didn't take long for the subcompact crossover to get noticed at our Leesburg location. Buyers and lessees from Clermont and beyond were drawn to the vehicle for its fresh, athletic design, available turbo engine, and strong list of standard features. Let's see what the 2019 Hyundai Kona has up its sleeves.


This Entry-Level Crossover Has Advanced Safety Features

Entry-level vehicles generally don't get many advanced safety features. Thankfully, the 2019 Hyundai Kona has impressive standard technologies. You'll now get lane keeping assist, forward collision-avoidance, and a driver attention warning that will let you know when it's time to pull over at the next rest stop for some shut eye.

Once you pass the base trim, there's blind-spot collision monitoring that's perfect for highway or busy city travel, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic warning to avoid parking lot fender benders. There's available LED lights - another feature that isn't common on entry-level vehicles - and on the top trims there's the pedestrian detection and parking distance warning.


The Hyundai Kona Offers Surprising Performance

The SE and SEL Kona trims have a 2.0L engine with 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft torque, and these ratings are perfect for most drivers. If, however, you want to take things up a notch, the Limited and Ultimate have a 1.6L turbocharged engine that produces 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft torque. These specs are very impressive for the segment, and you'll definitely feel the zippiness as you cruise around backroads or pass on the highway. For all the trims, front-wheel drive is standard, but if you want more control and traction, all-wheel drive is optional and perfect for when those Florida afternoon showers hit!

Enjoy the Tech & Comfort Features Aboard the Hyundai Kona

We live in a tech-focused world, so it only makes sense that our vehicles follow suit. All Kona trims get either a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen, and you can choose to use Hyundai's infotainment system or tap into Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. We also think you'll appreciate the premium audio system by Infinity and the SiriusXM package. If you want to make sure you don't get lost around Orlando, the top trim has standard navigation, as well as a heads-up display - pretty impressive for this segment - and a wireless charging pad for your smartphone.

Comfort is key, and the Kona will treat you right. You can get power-seating up to 8-ways, along with lumbar support for those long-haul trips around the state or even those weekend scenic drives around Lady Lake. The top two trims get refined leather seats, and even though Florida doesn't get frigid, we still appreciate the three-stage head seats on the mornings that are "cooler" for us! The Kona didn't forget about those out back, and there's standard reclining seatbacks so you can settle into the ride.
