I was gratified this morning to see that the Kona and Kona EV were among the finalists chosen in the Utility Vehicle of the Year category of the 2019 North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year awards! The other two finalists in the category are the Acura RDX and the Jaguar I-Pace! The winner will be announced at the Detroit Auto Show in January...as the happy owner of a Kona SEL for six months now, I know that Kona well deserves this recognition and ultimately, hopefully the win! :smile:

Way to go, Hyundai and the Kona team for a real winner! :smile:

The Kona continues to rack up awards with the news that it was named the 2019 Crossover of the Year by the Texas Motor Press Association (TxMPA), which includes automotive journalists from all over the state.

Quoting Michael Herzing, President, TxMPA, “The Texas Motor Press Association is proud to recognize the top contenders in the automotive industry in terms of new vehicle innovation, drivability, and design with the Texas Vehicle of the Year Awards. Jurors spent thousands of hours in 2018 test driving the newest vehicles on the market to help them cast informed votes. The Hyundai Kona was selected Texas Crossover of the Year for its enhanced driving dynamics and responsive performance for a variety of urban and multi-surface driving conditions.”

The accolades for the Kona just keep coming, as Consumer Reports has declared Kona as the winner of the Subcompact SUV category in its list of Top Ten Cars for 2019...Hyundai may have to fold down the Kona's back seats to hold all of it's awards if this keeps up! lol

As long as Hyundai maintains quality of the product it should last for awhile. The PT Cruiser was very popular, but Chrysler began cutting corners and demand eventually died out.
