2021 Hyundai Kona for Sale in Fairfield, CT
The 2021 Hyundai Kona is a subcompact crossover that nicely mixes car-like performance with the practicality of a small SUV. It’s earned a lot of praise since it debuted as a 2018 model, all of it justly deserved. The 2021 version offers a punchy turbocharged engine, comes with a long list of standard features, and is covered by 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary, scheduled maintenance in addition to its industry-leading warranties. This year also brings the all-new, Night version, which is outfitted with a zesty turbocharged powerplant, gloss-black trim inside and out, and LED lighting.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2021 Hyundai Kona is sold in six levels: SE, SEL, SEL Plus, Night, Limited, and Ultimate. The first three trims get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (147 hp) with a six-speed automatic transmission. The higher trims have a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (175 hp) with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. They all get a standard front-wheel drivetrain, but all-wheel drive is available. The FWD versions of the SE, SEL, and SEL Plus are estimated by the EPA to return 27 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, while the AWD versions return 26 city/30 highway. The FWD turbocharged models are rated for 28 city/32 highway, and the AWD turbocharged models supply 26 city/29 highway.
Standard and Optional Equipment
The base SE has 16-inch wheels, automatic headlights, a blind-spot mirror, cloth seats, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback, a dual-level floor in the cargo area, and a rearview camera system. The SEL moves up to 17-inch wheels and adds roof rails, a sunroof, heated turn-signal-integrated side mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The SEL Plus omits the sunroof from the standard equipment list but makes it optional; fog lights and a power-adjustable driver’s seat are included. The brand-new Night trim has the same basic equipment as the SEL with a few darkness-themed differences: 18-inch gloss-black wheels, LED headlights, black exterior trim, and black interior accents. The Limited returns the sunroof and adds some luxury with automatic climate control, leather upholstery, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Active Safety and Tech Features
Hyundai includes a suite of active safety technology in every ’21 Kona. The SE is supplied with forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, and a driver attention warning system. The SEL and above add a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, and the Ultimate also gets rear parking sensors and adaptive cruise control.
The infotainment system in the SE has a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming functions, two USB ports, and a six-speaker audio system. The SEL is upgraded with satellite and HD radio, and the SEL Plus sweetens the package with a premium eight-speaker Infinity audio system, a wireless device charger, and a three-year subscription to Hyundai’s Blue Link Connected Car services. The Ultimate gets an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen with navigation and a head-up display.
