Additional Packages

There's a configuration for everyone, so budget-conscious shoppers will stick to the base models, and those looking for some extra luxury will likely gravitate toward the top trims with greater features specs that also cost the most. There are a few standalone accessories, too, including an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink ($295) and roof rack cross rails ($250).

What 2021 Hyundai Kona Model Should I Buy?

There are several trims to choose from, so the right model will depend on what you want out of the crossover. The lower models will suffice if you're okay with having less power. There's the option of adding AWD to the mix if you're prone to being caught in adverse weather conditions. If you're after the eager little turbocharged motor, you'll have to go for a higher trim. This means you'll also get more luxury on the inside by default. For us, the Limited trim is the best because it's not as expensive as the Ultimate, but boasts a lot of similar features, and gets features such as automatic climate control and an auto-dimming rearview mirror to give it an extra bit of appeal.
