The 2019 Hyundai Kona has been making a name for itself around the world, showcasing a value-oriented MSRP and fun-to-drive performance. Now, it’s established itself as a winner in Canada. The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) has named the Kona its 2019 Best Small Utility Vehicle.
This association awarded the Kona the award after giving it high ratings for its style, safety features, technology, performance, and spirted handling.
“It’s been an incredible first year for the Kona, and we’re thrilled to be recognized for our innovative, industry-leading work in this segment,” said Don Romano, the president and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. “Expanding our range of SUVs to best meet the needs of Canadians is a top priority for Hyundai, and being acknowledged as leaders in the category shows that we’re absolutely moving in the right direction.”
The Kona, which is currently available here at Downtown Hyundai, combines a lightweight new chassis and sporty performance to make it a great vehicle to drive. It has an athletic silhouette that helps it stand out on the road, while also providing ample space inside.
It also comes standard with infotainment features like a 7-inch touchscreen display, steering wheel-mounted controls, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, Bluetooth®, Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Warning, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist.
