2020 Hyundai Kona Engine Specs

Hyundai Kona Powertrain

First, let’s look at what kind of power this SUV generates. The Kona gives you a choice between two different engines:

  • 2.0L I-4: 147 horsepower, 132 lb-ft of torque
  • 1.6L turbocharged I-4: 175 horsepower, 195 lb-ft of torque

The 2.0L engine comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission that provides optimized, automatic shifts, while SHIFTRONIC® lets you switch into a limited manual mode to change gears on command.

With the 1.6L turbocharged engine, you’ll get a 7-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch Transmission. This gives you the best of both worlds by combining two manual transmissions with an automatic mechanism to provide maximum control and precision. 

If you do a lot of driving over sand or through snow, then you’ll probably love that both powertrains can come with available all-wheel drive (AWD). This is a smart system that actively monitors your driving conditions and automatically adjusts torque distribution to improve traction control.


2020 Hyundai Kona Interior

Hyundai Kona Interior Review

Open the front door and slide behind the wheel, and you’ll see that despite its compact exterior, the Kona boasts a spacious cabin with room for five passengers and plenty of cargo:

  • Seating capacity: 5
  • Passenger volume: 94.1 cubic feet
  • Headroom (front/rear): 39.6/37.8 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 41.5/34.6 inches
  • Cargo volume: 45.8 cubic feet

Not only does the 2020 Hyundai Kona give you a total cargo volume of 45.8 cubic feet when you fold the rear seats down flat, it also has 19.2 cubic feet of trunk space behind the back row. So, if you and four of your friends fill the passenger space to capacity, you’ll still have enough room in the back for suitcases, coolers, umbrellas, wakeboards, and more.

Then, as you hit the road, turn up the volume on the available Infinity® Premium Audio system with eight speakers and Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology. With standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, you can safely access some of your favorite smartphone apps through the standard 7-inch or available 8-inch touchscreen in the center stack.


2020 Hyundai Kona Driving Safety

Smart Safety and the Kona

We know that every trip is about the journey, not the destination. So, of course, you want that journey to be a safe one. With the Kona, you can rest assured that it likely will be because this Hyundai SUV comes standard with several smart safety features and driver-assistive systems like:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Driver Attention Waring

Many other systems are available, too, like Blind-Spot Collision Warning with Lane Change Assist. This alerts you to vehicles in your side blind spot so that you know when it’s safe to change lanes—and when it isn’t.

Plus, with available Smart Cruise Control, you can take some pressure off your highway drives. This system automatically adjusts your cruise control speed to keep a safe following distance when you approach slower-moving traffic on the highway.
