2018 Hyundai Kona Technology

The 2018 Hyundai Kona is one of the first to feature the new chassis designed by the brand. The chassis itself is made of a high-strength steel from Hyundai. The standard engine in the 2018 Kona is an Atkinson-cycle 2.0-liter inline-four. The engine will have the ability of generating 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. It also features a six-speed automatic transmission. There is another engine available and there will be more offerings globally than in the US. Purchasers will have the option of including all-wheel drive on any model. The 2018 Hyundai Kona has three different driving modes: Normal, Sport, and Eco. These driving modes change the gearshift settings as well as the torque distribution for a completely different driving experience based on preference and driving conditions. The Sport setting is designed for better acceleration and early downshift braking. The Eco mode optimizes fuel efficiency by using longer gear ratios.

The inside of the 2018 Hyundai Kona is designed around the technology that has been included. There is a touchscreen tablet-like area on top of the dash.
