Hitting the OpenRoad with the Hyundai Kona

With my destination set to the Four Seasons (for their epic Thursday night barbecues), I rode up the Sea to Sky in style in the all new Hyundai Kona from OpenRoad Hyundai Boundary.

Hyundai Kona

Michelle parked her own Hyundai next to mine in a Downtown lot and we carpooled up to Whistler in my Tangerin Comet-coloured Kona. “I have to get new wheels,” she said. “Cause these look so good.” I had no idea that would be the first thing she noticed about our ride!

Plugging in my iPhone to activate Apple Car Play, sliding the sunroof back, hopping from Eco Drive Mode in the city to Sport Mode on the highway for more pick-up. This crossover has a lot of pep, and a lot of room – enough for our weekender bags, groceries, and more – and we didn’t even use the organization compartment that sits under the cargo area.

We exited the highway at Porteau Cove for a quite picnic lunch, turning into the parking lot at the same time as car club convoy of booming Italian sports cars. We hopped out to enjoy our feast at the picnic tables, and to also take photos of our hot little ride on the edge of Howe Sound. We got a few looks, and many smiles.

Lumbar support, touch-screen displays, and the Infinity audio system (and the great company I had) made the rest of the road trip a breeze.
