2018 Hyundai Kona Review
|Pros & Cons||What’s New|
|It offers a very refined european driving experience. It’s zippy around town and fun to drive.||All new model for 2018.|
|I’m tall and was very comfortable driving the Kona around. I was surprised that when both Brian Armstead, our very tall Roadfly editor and I were driving together we had ample shoulder room and didn’t feel cramped at all.|
|I really like the styling|
|Overall sportiness and very long list of Hyundai standard equipment is impressive.|
The Kona is a brand new crossover SUV from Hyundai. It’s a subcompact SUV offering tremendous value due to its Korean heritage.
My test car was the Ultimate package and it was fully loaded with lots of technology and safety features. Some of which are unheard of at this price level like auto rain sensing wipers and forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection.

Q. Should I put the new Kona on my subcompact SUV shopping list?
