Hyundai Kona 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Kia Seltos rival is now more expensive

Hyundai’s Kona has been giveN its second price rise in three months.

For the second time in three months, Hyundai Australia has upped the pricing of the Kona small SUV.

Back in March, regular Kona variants copped a $300 price rise, while their Electric siblings jumped $150.

While the entry-level Go grade wasn’t affected by this month’s price rises, all other versions of the Kona are up $260 to $650, depending on the variant. As such, the line-up now ranges from $24,300 to $65,290 plus on-road costs (see full pricing table below).

No changes have been made to the Kona’s standard specification, with a Hyundai Australia spokesperson telling CarsGuide the price increases were caused by exchange-rate pressures.

As before, the Kia Seltos rival is available in four grades: entry-level Go, mid-range Active and Elite, and flagship Highlander.

Front-wheel-drive variants are motivated by a 110kW/180Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, which is mated to a six-speed torque-converter automatic.

Meanwhile, all-wheel-drive versions upgrade to a 130kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol unit that’s matched to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

Electric variants are powered by a 150kW/395Nm electric motor up front and have a 64kWh battery that provides 449km of driving range (WLTP).
