An Impressive Powertrain: Prioritizing Power & Efficiency

Hyundai Kona Trunk Detail

When exploring most vehicles, you’ll either get power or efficiency. With the Hyundai Kona, you’ll get both. This Hyundai offers an available 1.6L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that will arm you with 195 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Adding to this balanced performance is an EPA-estimated 29 city/35 highway MPG.1

This engine is also mated to a highly innovative available 7-speed EcoShift® dual-clutch transmission. The dual-clutch system enables your Kona to shift its gears quicker, promoting better fuel economy and acceleration.
