Drive Mode

The Drive Mode selector offers a choice of three different settings to suit your personal preferences. Drive Mode automatically modifies the gear shift schedule to transform Kona’s personality into frugal, fast or just plain normal.

When driving conditions become difficult, TCM steps in to ensure optimal traction. Available on both 2WD and 4WD, TCM automatically selects the right gear and regulates engine torque delivery to each individual wheel so that wheel slip is minimized.
