High Tech Meets Affordability with the Hyundai Kona

With leaps in technology every day, the Hyundai team worked hard to create a vehicle to match. More and more customers are asking for a personalized experience with their devices and vehicles, so we responded with our new Hyundai Kona. The 2018 Hyundai Kona is one of the best cars for the tech geek on a budget. Packed with advanced features and starting at low prices, the Kona meets your unique needs without emptying your pockets.

To help make your decision on what to include in your next Kona, we broke down which standard and optional features we recommend for different types of drivers. Whether you are tech savvy, looking for an upgrade, or simply new to the Hyundai family, we’ve outlined which features are best for you.   


Every Kona model comes with a seven or eight-inch touch screen display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a back-up camera with parking guidance.

Touch Screen Display: With the Kona’s touch screen display, everything you need is easily accessible. It gives you precise control and quick access to your music, navigation and audio options. This is a must for those who want more control of their navigation and entertainment with less hassle.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto:  Personalize your Kona further by bringing your apps along with you. Seamlessly access your music, podcasts, messages, calls, contacts and navigation at the touch of a button. This is a must for those who like keep their smartphone close but know and appreciate the importance safety while driving.

Rear-View Monitor: With the Kona’s built-in back-up camera on your touch screen display, safely travel and park like a pro. The parking guidance will ensure your car is safe from bumps and scratches. This is a must for those who may need a little help with parallel parking on their downtown adventures.


Additional options are available for affordable prices. We recommend these four additions to help keep you safe and better prepared on the road.

Heads-up Display: The only crossover with heads-up display, the Kona keeps the most important information drivers need at eye level. This lets you keep your eyes on the road while monitoring your speed and navigation on a transparent pop-up panel. We recommend this option for drivers with long commutes or those who like to take cross-country trips. You can learn more and find images of the Heads-up Display here.

Wireless Device Charging: No need to struggle with pesky cords and charging outlets. Your Kona can wirelessly charge your compatible devices. Just rest your phone on the center console and forget about it while it charges. Having your phone out of sight improves safety by keeping distractions away. We recommend this option for drivers who’ve already ditched the cords and updated to a device with wireless charging. 

Driver Assist: Packed with advanced driver-assisted systems, the Kona helps keep your drive enjoyable and safe. Some of these systems include the forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, driver attention warnings, blind spot collision with rear cross-traffic collision warnings, and lane keeping assist. We recommend this option for new drivers or those who live in busy pedestrian areas.

Blue Link: Your devices are becoming smarter and your car should too. With Blue Link Connected Car Service, your Kona can connect to your smart device. As a result, you can start, lock or unlock your car, access climate controls and receive monthly vehicle health reports all on your smartphone. We recommend this option for drivers in the Rochester area who want to step into a warm car during the winter without leaving their house before its time to go.


Starting at only $19,000, the 2018 Hyundai Kona is the most tech packed and most affordable crossover in its class. With one of America’s best warranties and all this tech at an affordable price, we know the Kona will easily satisfy the tech savvy buyer on a budget.
