The base engine on the Hyundai Kona is a 2.0L engine that offers 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque, along with a Kona MPG rating of 27 City/33 Highway MPG*. This engine configuration is offered on the Kona SE, SEL, and SEL Plus.

2021 Hyundai Kona MPG By Trim & Drivetrain

With two impressive engine options, many drivers may already have a good idea of which Hyundai Kona trim level they want for their Loma Linda commute. However, there’s another factor to consider before you buy. The 2021 Hyundai Kona has two drivetrain options – All Wheel Drive (AWD) and Front Wheel Drive (FWD).

FWD comes standard on all Hyundai Kona trim levels and will provide the best fuel economy rating. However, drivers who want additional traction on Redlands roads may want to opt for the AWD drivetrain, even though it comes with a slightly lower fuel economy rating. We’ve listed the 2021 Hyundai fuel economy ratings by trim level and drivetrain option for you below:

  • 2021 Hyundai Kona SE = 27 City/33 Highway/30 Combined MPG*
