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).
