By having such a daring and bold design, the Konda is signaling what the future of Hyundai Motors will bring for this new generation of vehicles in the SUV segment, especially the compact SUV segment. The Konda is unique in its striking style, and high contrast design elements.

This includes a high-stiffness torsion beam for the 2WD suspension and a dual-arm multi-link suspension system for the 4WD configuration. For customizing your driving style there is are three different driving modes, Normal, Sports, and Eco.

How is the 2018 Kona styled?

The Kona has an aggressive body styling which shows off its impressive silhouette and well-proportioned design. A low, wide stance, along with a long wheelbase and short overhangs ensures that this vehicle remains sporty, and has nimble handling. As mentioned previously, the Kona has a futuristic, almost mechanical appearance, which is only enhanced through the composite lamps that are daytime running lights. Even the grille is enhanced with a Cascading Grille in a sporty mesh pattern, and one either side are the wing-type fenders. The rear lights continue this pattern of uniqueness, with the turn indicators, reverse lamp, and brake lights all placed in a separate configuration. If the style itself was not enough, the two-tone color scheme with plenty of color variations should be enough to satisfy anyone's palate. Once you are finished looking at the exterior of the Konda, the interior is sure to entice you just as much, with a wide and spacious feel, even in a compact SUV. While the interior is simpler than the exterior, there is still plenty to look at with the advanced infotainment features, and the faux appearance of a floating dashboard. Once you have had your share of the dashboard, the elevated front seating should be your next stop, giving you better visibility, as well as comfort wherever you go. The seating is complemented with the optimized layout, creating an enormous amount of interior space, as well as headroom and ease of access for passengers in the back through a lower floor and seating position. The rear seats have the ability to fold down flat to give you optimal amount of cargo space.

What are the safety features of the Kona?

There are many safety features that come standard with the Kona, but perhaps the most important and least recognizable is the lightweight body frame that is created with Advanced High Strength Steel, which passively protects you better than any other vehicle in the Kona's class. Other safety features in the Konda include Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Highbeam Assist. The radar system in the Kona also adds to the Blind-Spot Collision Warning feature and the Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning.
