The Hyundai Kona is a subcompact SUV that features striking looks, lively handling, lots of room for cargo, and a long list of standard features. Fontana Hyundai shoppers tell us the 2021 Hyundai Kona provides excellent value for the money. More importantly, the 2021 Kona is fun to drive, and at the end of the day, that might just be the best reason to get behind the wheel of a new Kona.
With six trim levels on offer at dealers serving Fontana, Hyundai dealership visitors will find a model that meets their needs and budget. The models are listed as SE, SEL, SEL Plus, Night, Limited and Ultimate. Front-wheel drive is standard across the lineup, and all-wheel drive is optional.
The Kona SE, SEL and SEL Plus trims are motivated by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder powerplant that produces 147 horses and 132 lb-ft, teamed to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The other trims are powered by a 1.6-liter turbo-four engine that produces 175 hp and 195 lb-ft, joined to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Kona gets EPA-estimated fuel economy up to 28 mpg city/32 mpg highway with the turbocharged block and front-wheel drive.*
