Vehicle Overview

The first generation of the Hyundai Kona was launched in 2018, which means there have not been many substantial changes for the 2019 model year. However, you will find that some amenities that were once optional on the 2019 Hyundai Kona in North Kingstown are now standard. While Hyundai has a strong reputation for safety, most of its higher-end safety features were previously only optional. The addition of more standard driver-assist aids in 2019, combined with a competitive price, is a major bonus for anyone looking for a safe car that doesn't break the bank. Along with safety features, there are more standard and available amenities overall in the Kona. The Kona is more fun to drive this year too, thanks to the addition of a new V6 engine that provides more power. To see all the exciting new changes to the 2019 Kona yourself, you will need to arrange a test drive at Tarbox Hyundai in North Kingstown Rhode Island.
