Which Hyundai vehicle is the Best Car for Graduates?

It has been a strange year thus far, but perhaps no one is feeling it more than students. The school year has been upended, but there will still be fresh graduates heading into the world this summer, and those graduates will still need a new vehicle. That’s why we’re so pleased that the 2020 Hyundai Kona was included among the 10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates in the annual list by Autotrader.

“As new graduates plan for the future, having a hefty car payment is not something that should weigh them down. 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.”

2020 Hyundai Kona Excellent Option for Recent Grads

The subcompact crossover known as the Kona makes an excellent option for recent college grads. It’s a small vehicle that doesn’t compromise style or amenities for functionality and space. It’s powered by a 1.6L turbocharged engine and is packed full of advanced safety technologies thanks to Hyundai SmartSense, but it’s also packed full of great technologies that recent grads will appreciate, like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and a USB port.

Perhaps most importantly, though, is its price tag, which starts at just under $20,000 MSRP. Affordability is key for individuals just entering the workforce, and that’s the main reason the 2020 Hyundai Kona makes such an excellent choice for graduates. We’re stoked that Autotrader has recognized this, and if you have any questions about getting a new Kona of your own, don’t hesitate to reach out to us right here at Coastal Hyundai.
