Sitting in the centre of the dash of the Kona is a larger 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, but a larger 10.3-inch infotainment display is also available. Both units come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A heads-up display is also available and works with the available navigation system to project turn-by-turn directions onto your windshield.

The HR-V comes standard with a small touchscreen display that only offers an Am/Fm radio. If you purchase a higher trim level, however, you can choose the available 7-inch touchscreen display that comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
