If you’re a recent college graduate who’s in the market for a new ride, you’re probably looking for a car that’s high-tech, stylish, and efficient. Well, check out the Hyundai Kona — it was recently honored on Autotrader’s list of the 10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates.
To make the list, the models needed to be available for under $25,000 and earn at least 30 mpg combined. The Kona passed this test with flying colors — in addition to offering up to 35 mpg on the highway, this spirited SUV comes standard with a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system, Bluetooth® compatibility, smartphone connectivity, and an array of driver-assist features like Lane-Keeping Assist and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. And on top of its advanced standard tech tools, Autotrader noted the Kona for its many fun, expressive color options, like Lime Twist, Sunset Orange, and Surf Blue.
“The Hyundai Kona is one of those small, affordable cars that are so much fun and have such a unique character that it really feels like a much more expensive car,” stated Brian Moody, Autotrader Executive Editor. “In the world of $25,000 cars, new or used, the Hyundai Kona is worth a test drive.”
