What Are Some Interior and Exterior Features?

Each Kona Hyundai trim brings a sleek and modern design to the road creating great curb appeal. While keeping its signature hearty style the new Kona gets updates across the whole vehicle. The updated front end gives a bold appearance with its protective cladding panels giving it a showstopping look. LED daytime running lights give it an even more aggressive look. From the side, the Kona maintains its signature brawny appearance while adding new accents to give the whole car a more connected look that flows beautifully together. In the rear, the updated taillights bring horizontal graphics to mirror the one of a kind look provided by the front lighting. The 2021 Kona comes with the previously-available 16-inch wheels but 17 and 18-inch wheels are also available. Compared to its predecessor, the new Kona provides drivers with a more luxurious interior. Accentuating the horizontal layout, the new console area is disconnected from the instrument panel. Extra cargo space and rear legroom have been added to give occupants more comfort and versatility. Cloth and leather seats are available in various color options. A wide dashboard gives the Kona's interior an open and airy feeling. For new tech, the Kona features a new 10.25-inch touchscreen display with the latest Blue Link software upgrade which introduces split-screen and multiple Bluetooth connections.

What About Safety Features?

To keep drivers and passengers safe, the Kona is now equipped with a huge selection of available safety features. Smart Cruise Control has been updated with stop and go technology. 2021 introduces Leading Vehicle Departure Alert to the Kona, notifying the driver that the vehicle ahead of them has started moving if they do not react fast enough. Lane following assist helps drivers stay in the center of their lane by gently adjusting the steering. Also upgraded for 2021 is the Kona's forward collision detection system with pedestrian and new optional cyclist detection. Rear cross-traffic collision avoidance helps avoid a collision when reversing by automatically applying the brakes, while previous Kona's only gave drivers a warning.
