Since landing at our Olathe Hyundai dealership earlier this year, the all-new Kona has quickly become a gangbusters SUV. A stark contrast to its larger crossover siblings in the Hyundai lineup, the Kona has a unique sense of style, much like your dapper cousin who never quite fit in with the rest of the family.
