The SEL is the second trim for the Hyundai Kona and has a starting price of $22,035. The SEL is upgraded to 17-inch alloy wheels, has heated front seats, a proximity key with push-button start, heated exterior side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The 2018 Hyundai Kona SEL is also available in six exterior colors. Weirdly, this is also the only Kona trim available with a contrasting roof – grab the SEL in Silver, Red, or Blue, and there's an option to add a black roof for an extra $150.
Additional safety systems include blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, although you'll need to jump to a higher trim level if you want more advanced active safety gear. Or you could just grab the $1,500 Technology Package. In addition to its power sunroof, eight-way power driver's seat, and fog lights, it adds forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and driver attention warning.
