The Kona Limited and Ultimate models up the anty with a turbocharged 175 hp 1.6L 4 cylinder engine pushing plenty of torque to its 7 speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and 18-inch alloy wheels. The Kona Limited offers leather seats, power tilt and slide sunroof, and darkness-piercing LED headlights and taillights. The Kona Ultimate has everything you need in a compact SUV including a large 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, smart cruise control, heads-up display, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
