Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Hyundai Kona comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.Adaptive cruise control added to top-trim Kona Ultimate.Small changes to standard and optional equipment.

PROS
Optional turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration
Nimble handling makes it enjoyable to drive
Lots of features for your money

CONS
Weak base engine
Gear shifts from the turbocharged engine's transmission are often unrefined
Interior is trimmed with a lot of hard plastic panels

A few high-end features trickle down to the new mid-range SEL Plus model for 2020. Previously only available on the top-spec Ultimate, the SEL Plus comes with a 4.2-inch color display located between the two analog gauges and a wireless charging pad for smartphones. The auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink is now standard on both the Limited and Ultimate models as well as a new orange interior accent kit that automatically is added to either trim if the Sunset Orange or Ultra Black exterior colors are chosen.

Pros
Standout styling, punchy turbo four, packed with features.

Cons
Tight cargo space, numb steering.

Part-time all-wheel drive
Diesel adds thousands to bottom line
No more sliding second row
