FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., May. 12, 2020 – As the class of 2020 enters one of the most difficult economic climates in recent history, Autotrader lists the Hyundai Kona among the 10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates who are considering practicality and affordability when it comes to their car purchase.
The Kona, with its 1.6L Turbo GDI engine, combines exceptional driving performance with class leading safety and advanced technology. Starting at just under $20,000, Kona is recognized by Autotrader editors for its “head-turning style and an equally attractive price tag. Tech-savvy college grads will appreciate the excellent UVO infotainment system with comes standard with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a USB port.”
“We angled our list toward those cars that have a low price but still offer style and fun,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “The Hyundai Kona highlights that spirit perfectly. The Kona is one of those things in life that looks more expensive than its actual price.”
“As new graduates plan for the future, having a hefty car payment is not something that should weigh them down,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor North America. “The Hyundai Kona is the perfect choice – starting well below others in the subcompact SUV segment, Kona offers value while not sacrificing on the style, utility, technology convenience and safety features these young adults still need.”
