2020 Hyundai Kona gains improved safety across range

The 2020 Hyundai Kona has been updated with additional standard safety as part of the Hyundai SmartSense suite of technologies, across a continuing four-grade range.

Every 2020 Kona from the range-opening Go variant features Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW) systems as standard.

The range-opening 2020 Kona Go and the Kona Active feature a camera-based Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) City/Urban system with Forward Collision Warning (FCW).

2020 Kona Elite and Highlander variants continue to feature a camera and radar-based City/Urban/ Interurban FCA system with a Pedestrian Detection function.

In addition, every 2020 Kona model features a Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system that progressively provides warnings and then steering intervention to help keep the SUV within the lane markings. Also standard is the Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system, which monitors driver attention level, and recommends the driver take a break as required.

2020 Kona Elite and Highlander gain Smart Cruise Control (SCC), which automatically maintains a safe distance to the vehicle ahead, by automatically slowing and accelerating Kona when driving in traffic.
