What Kind of Insurance Do You Need for Your Hyundai Kona?

Bodily Injury Liability

Bodily injury liability insurance covers damage if someone else is hurt in an accident you cause. This policy pays for medical expenses and recovery for the other person. 

Property Damage Liability

Property damage liability pays for damage to someone else's property that you cause while driving your Hyundai Kona. You may be required to carry a minimum amount of property damage liability and bodily injury liability on your Hyundai Kona. Your agent can help you understand the rules about mandatory insurance in your area. 

Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection

Medical payments insurance and personal injury protection offer insurance to handle you and your passengers' medical bills if you are in an accident. Depending on your location, you may be required to carry one of these policies. 

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage protects you from the negative effects of getting into an accident with someone who doesn't have enough insurance to cover the costs. Without it, you could get stuck with repair and medical bills, even if you aren't at fault. 

Optional Coverage:

Collision

Collision insurance coverage pays for damage if you are in an accident with another vehicle. It's part of a full coverage policy, so if you don't have a loan or lease, you can skip this type of insurance. Your collision policy kicks in after you pay your deductible for a covered accident. 

Comprehensive

A comprehensive insurance policy covers damage to your Kona if your car is stolen or vandalized. It also covers accidents caused by something other than another vehicle, such as hitting an animal in the road. 

If you have a loan or lease on your Kona, the bank or dealership may require you to carry certain minimum amounts of collision and comprehensive coverage. 

Glass Coverage

Replacing your windshield is expensive, but it doesn't quite justify making an insurance claim in many cases. With a zero-deductible glass coverage policy, you can get your broken glass replaced without having to pay out of pocket. 

Gap Insurance

If you owe more on your Hyundai Kona than it's worth, gap insurance can help protect your financial interests. If you are in an accident and the insurance company says your Kona is a total loss, it may not be worth enough to pay off your loan or lease. Gap insurance can help you pay the difference between your car's worth and the amount the insurance company will pay.
