In this video, Jenny checks out Hyundai’s all-new car in the subcompact SUV, the 2018 Hyundai Kona in the Highlander trim. The Kona has proved to be a pretty slick little SUV aimed at the young and trendy and is loaded with tech perks.

Jenny looks at the top of the range Highlander so it has the max in techy features. But to her slight dismay, this one is also equipped with the naturally aspirated 2.0 engine which is the less cool option. Simone will get to review the 1.6-litre turbo KONA in a few weeks time.


Engine Size: 2.0L Petrol
Max. Power:
110kW – 148hp
Max. Torque:
180Nm @4500revs
