2019 Hyundai Kona SE

As far as entry models go, the Kona SE is one of the most well equipped, with full smartphone functionality through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as some impressive standard safety features. It’s the perfect entry point at under $20,000, with just one real flaw - the engine is weak and provides lukewarm performance compared to turbocharged rivals at this price.
