2020 Hyundai Kona Engine Specs

Rugged Adaptability

Nimble enough for the big city, and with plenty of pluck, the 2021 Kona satisfies a wide range of activities. Whether you’re loading up for a night on the town or heading off to the weekend ski resort, its 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and optional AWD keeps your trip lively.

Those who choose the Limited or Ultimate trims get an extra burst of energy, thanks to Hyundai’s 1.6 turbocharged 4-cylinder. Capable of delivering 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque, it carves up back roads and stretches of busy highway.

True long-distance runners, the Limited and Ultimate trim levels each feature a smart-shifting 7-speed EcoShift® dual-clutch transmission. This helps the 2021 Kona achieve an EPA-estimated 28 city/32 highway/30 combined MPG.1

2020 Hyundai Kona Cargo Area

Fun & Functional Design

When you approach the 2021 Hyundai Kona, you’ll first notice its svelte physique. Despite its designation as a subcompact, the Kona isn’t one to blend in—from its honeycomb mesh grille and vent hood to its pronounced liftgate, it evokes a sporty attitude.

Taller drivers will especially be impressed with the Kona’s ample head- and legroom. Boasting over 113 cubic feet of total interior volume, you can comfortably seat up to five adult-sized passengers throughout the cabin.

With so many friends, you’ll need a place to fit their stuff. The 2021 Kona has you covered. With 19.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row, it easily outsizes the competition.

Need help fitting a pair of skis? Drop the 60/40-split fold-down and reclining rear seatback to enjoy up to 45.8 cubic feet.

Embracing the Modern Age

Those who prefer to drive smaller SUVs understand that it’s not just about the destination—it’s how you spend your time along the way. That’s why the 2021 Hyundai Kona is loaded with a full suite of technology.

From the heated fronts seats to the available Heads-up Display, the Kona keeps you cozy while you stay focused on what’s in front of you. To maintain a full charge, the SEL Plus, Limited, and Ultimate trims come standard with a wireless device charging pad.

Want to answer a few messages from the road? Perhaps you’re ready to premiere this season’s playlist? With built-in Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, you can quickly sync your smartphone to the cabin’s large touchscreen.

To help get you on the road faster, every touchscreen features a RearView Monitor with parking guidance. This camera works in tandem with Hyundai’s SmartSense suite of active safety, which includes features like:

  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Warning
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind-Spot Collisions Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist
