Get Your 2018 Hyundai Kona This March, From $19,500

Hyundai has announced the pricing details of the Kona for the US market, with sales to launch this March.

The new Hyundai Kona’s range kicks off at $19,500 MSRP for the entry-level SE model. Power is provided by a 147hp 2.0-liter engine paired to a standard six-speed automatic transmission.

If you want all-wheel drive, Hyundai will charge you an extra $1,300 while the contrast roof option comes only with the SEL grade which starts from $21,300.

The most powerful version of the Hyundai Kona uses a 175hp turbocharged 1.6-liter engine that comes only with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.  Prices start from $24,700 for the Limited front-wheel drive version, with the all-wheel drive system commanding the same $1,300 fee. Sitting at the top of the range is the Hyundai Kona Ultimate AWD, priced at $28,700.

Hyundai’s latest crossover is based on a brand new platform, claiming to offer great interior space and good ground clearance. Front-wheel drive models are fitted with a torsion beam suspension at the rear. All-wheel drive Konas get a more sophisticated multi-link layout.

The dashboard hosts an eight-inch infotainment system that comes with standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, along with Sirius XM Radio, HD Radio and Blue Link LTE connectivity services. Other interior features include a wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones and a heads-up display.

Hyundai also offers its smallest crossover to date with a complete range of available active safety systems, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist along with Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

As mentioned previously, sales for the new 2018 Hyundai Kona will launch this March.

    Well, at least the pricing is right on. Bet they sell none, or close to it, of versions over $26-27K, though. Most sales will be under $25K.
