Hyundai's Smallest SUV Receives the Industry's Biggest Award

We're proud to announce that the Hyundai Kona/Kona Electric SUV has been voted the 2019 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year.™ Although it is Hyundai's smallest designed SUV, the Kona has proven continuously that it's the right size for just about any adventure near Reading, PA. Available with a gas or electric powered engine, the Kona/Kona Electric is poised to incite your next adventure.

Hyundai Kona Model Configurations

The 2019 Hyundai Kona boasts five unique trim levels, available in the SE, SEL, Limited, Ultimate, and the newly-introduced Electric model configuration. Two different engines fuel the four gas-powered trims, including a 147-horsepower 2.0-liter MPI Atkinson engine on the SE and SEL, and a 175-horsepower 1.6-liter Turbo GDI engine on the Limited and the Ultimate.

The Kona Electric features an EPA-estimated 258-mile range on a single full charge, and can be recharged using Hyundai's 240-volt charger available with the Blue Link® app to help you monitor its progress overnight.


The Hyundai Kona/Kona Electric didn't win the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™ Award by accident. Featuring impressive fuel economy, on both the gas-powered and electric engines, and available all-wheel drive functionality, the Kona continues to impress with its astonishing list of capable features, including:

  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control (TCS) and Brake Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Bodyside reinforcements
  • LED Daytime Running Lights
  • Heated exterior mirrors
  • Roof rails
  • Vehicle Stability Management

For the ultimate fan, Hyundai recently partnered with Marvel to create a heroic iteration of the Kona, known as the Kona Iron Man Special Edition. Emblazoned with Tony Stark insignia and a robust red and black metallic exterior paint, the Kona Iron Man is the icing on the cake for admirers of the already sophisticated and capable SUV.
