FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 26, 2020 – During the COVID-19 pandemic, pet adoptions have surged nationwide. In celebration of National Dog Day, Autotrader has named the 2020 Hyundai Kona as one the 10 Best Cars for Dog Lovers.
“As more Americans take to the roads for family time this summer and fall, it’s important that the entire family is safe – pets included,” said Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor North America. “The Hyundai Kona is well-equipped with available comfort, convenience and safety features no matter how long or short the trip may be.”
The 2020 Hyundai Kona, with its 113.3 cu. ft. of total interior volume, combines roominess in a compact package with advanced Hyundai SmartSense safety technologies. Autotrader’s editors recognized the Kona for its comfort and convenience features to keep both humans and dogs safe for the ride ahead, including large rear doors and a low cargo floor.
“Trips around town or to local destinations have become an important part of our lives these last few months and for many people, that means bringing along their pets as they hit the road,” said Brian Moody, executive editor, Autotrader. “To help new car buyers that are traveling with four-legged friends, we’ve carefully curated a list of the best cars that offer great comfort and safety features while also making the lives of pet parents just a little easier.”
