2018 Hyundai Kona The revised and recently announced 2018 Hyundai Kona was honored as the Best Economic Performance and Best 5 All-Around Performance awards from the Automotive Science Group. And given that Hyundai has marked incredible selling reports and offers vast quality for the cash, we agree with jury's decision.

In order to be able to compete and potentially win such an award a vehicle should undergo a special analyzing program that makes conclusion about vehicle's life cycle, relative comparison to other rivals and overall environmental, economic and social performance. Or, in other words, the vehicle should be an achiever in any field of the automobile business.
