What are the 2020 Hyundai Kona trim levels?

Choose from five Kona models: the SE, SEL, SEL Plus, Limited, and Ultimate. The base SE is a high-tech crossover, with complete smartphone integration, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen at your service. High-tech safety gear, like forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, is also standard.

Upgrade to the SEL for some extra timesavers - including keyless entry and ignition. Sporty features, like roof rails and blind-spot monitoring, come in handy on road trips. And, in terms of comfort, the SEL's heated front seats are a nice touch.

The SEL Plus adds luxury items, including a sunroof and a power-adjustable driver's seat. The eight-speaker Infinity audio system and wireless smartphone charging pad also offer a taste of the high life.

The Limited is even fancier. Inside, you'll find leather upholstery and automatic climate control. Outside, everyone can see it coming, thanks to its LED headlights and taillights and unique exterior trim.

Choose the Ultimate for a fully loaded Kona. This top-of-the-line trim model adds extra safety features, such as pedestrian detection for the forward collision mitigation system. You'll also find upgraded tech gear, including an 8-inch central touchscreen and navigation technology.

The first three trims feature the base engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. With its 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque, this engine gives your daily drive plenty of pep.

The Limited and Ultimate trims offer even more speed, thanks to their turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This setup makes for a sportier performance, with 175 horses and 195 pound-feet of torque to quench your need for speed. And traction-enhancing all-wheel drive is optional for all 2020 Hyundai Kona trims, no matter which engine is under the hood.

What are the 2020 Kona mpg ratings?

These vary, depending on which powertrain you select and whether or not you choose to add all-wheel-drive performance gear to your 2020 Hyundai Kona. With front-wheel drive and the optional turbocharged engine, this crossover is at its thriftiest, earning 30 mpg combined or 28 city/32 highway mpg. The base engine, though it gives you less power, earns similar figures, with up to 30 mpg combined or 27/33 mpg. Adding all-wheel drive into the mix only drops each rating by a few miles per gallon.
