Hyundai keeps things simple, offering the Kona in four well-equipped trims: SE, SEL, N Line, and Limited. Front-wheel drive comes standard; shoppers can add an all-wheel setup for roughly $1,500.
The base SE model comes with an estimated starting MSRP of $21,000, coming standard with a suite of driver aids like automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and pedestrian detection. Other standard amenities are automatic headlamps, power side mirrors, cloth seating, split-folding rear seats, keyless entry, manual A/C, an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
Step up to the SEL, and Hyundai adds a nice assortment of extra amenities for about $23,000. It adds things like 17-inch alloy wheels, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, heated mirrors, remote engine start, push-button start, and satellite radio.
The recently-added N Line includes a more powerful 195-hp engine for a sportier driving experience. Wireless smartphone charging is standard, as is a leather steering wheel, heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, automatic climate control, and 18-inch wheels. It retails for $25,500.
Opting for the top-of-the-line Limited model increases the price tag to around $28,500. It comes nearly fully-loaded, with rear parking sensors, LED headlights, automatic high beams, fog lamps, a power moonroof, leather upholstery, adaptive cruise control, ambient lighting, an 8-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, navigation, and a 10.25-inch touchscreen.
