2019 Hyundai Kona Trims & Features

The 2019 Kona can carry five passengers, and Hyundai is offering the vehicle in four trim levels. The trim levels include the SE, SEL, Limited and Ultimate. Standard features include things like front-wheel drive and alloy wheels. You can get all-wheel drive with this little SUV, but it is optional. When you spring for all-wheel drive, you will be driving around in a vehicle with an upgraded rear suspension and a lockable center differential.
