The All-New Hyundai Kona - Coming to World Hyundai

Hyundai's newest vehicle, the Hyundai Kona, is sure to turn heads on the streets of Chicago and World Hyundai in the Matteson Auto Mall will be an authorized seller of the Hyundai Kona. If you are looking for a Kona dealer near Chicago, look no further than World Hyundai.

The Hyundai Kona is brand new to the B-SUV market and looks to compete with other small SUVs like the Nissan Juke. With a compact feel that makes it easy to drive around suburbs like Orland Park and Tinley Park, you will forget about the relatively smaller size compared to the Tucson and Santa Fe models. Plus, the Hyundai Kona retains all of the convenience features that people have come to expect in a new vehicle. 

Powerful Engine, Convenience Features Abound

A 2.0-liter MPI Atkinson engine produces 149PS, with a 0-100km/h time of 10 seconds and a top speed of 194km/h. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, the engine delivers maximum torque of 179 NM (13.8 kgf · m) at 4500rpm.

The Gamma 1.6T-GDI engine boasts 177PS, a 0-100km/h time of 7.7 seconds and a top speed of 210km/h. The engine delivers maximum torque of 265NM (27kgf · m) from 1,500 to 4,500rpm and is mated to Hyundai's efficient and responsive seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (7DCT).

In addition to the 1.6T-GDI engine, customers in Europe can also opt for Hyundai's downsized 1.0 T-GDI turbocharged three-cylinder engine with six-speed manual transmission. This turbo-charged powerplant is optimized for efficiency and produces 120PS, a 0-100km/h time of 12 seconds, top speed of 181km/h and maximum torque of 172NM (17.5kgf · m) from 1,500 to 4000 rpm.

A new Head-Up Display (HUD) is fitted to the Kona, which projects a virtual image onto the clear glass panel mounted behind the instrument panel to enable the driver to keep his or her eyes on the road. With a projected image size of eight-inches at a two meter distance and class-leading luminance of more than 10,000 candela per square meter, the Kona's combiner HUD ensures both excellent day- and night-time visibility. You'll love the convenience of having your vehicle's information projected to enhance safety and usability include speed, navigation instructions, Lane Departure Warning messages, and audio information.

What is 'Kona'?

In keeping with previous naming of Hyundai models, Hyundai has chosen a destination location that fits the style of this vehicle. The Kona region on the big island of Hawai'i is known as a thrill seeker destination, and with that, a new Hyundai model was born.


World Hyundai is proud to be the Chicago Hyundai Kona dealer of choice for those living in Chicago and in the suburbs including Bourbonnais, Calumet City, Matteson, Joliet, Lansing, Orland Park, Tinley Park and beyond. Looking for Hyundai Kona pricing? Contact World Hyundai for details.
