Hyundai Kona and Kona EV takes home North American Utility Vehicle of the Year Award

Here at Ron Marhofer Hyundai of Green, we spend a lot of time talking up the benefits of owning a Hyundai car. However, given that we're one of the premier Hyundai dealers serving Akron and Cuyahoga Falls these days, that sort of comes with the territory. But when it comes to models like the new 2019 Hyundai Kona, we rarely have to talk it up at all. In fact, this compact crossover speaks confidently for itself given that it recently took home the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year award.

Now, there's a lot of automotive awards out there, but winning North American Utility Vehicle of The Year is a pretty big deal for the Hyundai Kona for a number of reasons.

For one thing, it was up against a strong field of over 20 eligible competitors, including some well-established luxury SUV models. And given that the Hyundai Kona is a recent addition to the Hyundai portfolio, having it come out ahead of segment standards and rivals is significant to say the least.

Of course, when you look into the design and capability of the new Hyundai Kona, it's easy to see why it was chosen as the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year. With its compact size, it's a great car for campus driving for students at Kent State, but it's generous cargo room and raised ground clearance make it just as capable for adventurous drivers from nearby New Franklin and Hudson, OH to take with them on weekend camping trips. And with the newly available Hyundai Kona EV, this compact electric crossover SUV offers both efficiency and usable range for folks who're looking for a greener way to get around Ohio.

But see there we go, we're already getting carried away talking up the benefits of owning a new Hyundai Kona. Ultimately, if you'd like to see what it's like to drive a vehicle named the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year, you'll want to spend some time behind the wheel of the Hyundai Kona here at our Akron, OH dealership. Stop in today to take the Hyundai Kona out for a spin.
