Hyundai Kona 2020

The 2020 Hyundai Kona range of configurations is currently priced from $24,300. Our most recent review of the 2020 Hyundai Kona resulted in a score of 7.6 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Senior Editor Matt Campbell had this to say at the time: If you must have an electric small SUV, and it must have a decent amount of electric driving range, then the Hyundai Kona is the only choice you’ve got in Australia until the MG ZS EV arrives, and even then the Kona will leave that car in the shade for range. It really is one of the best EV options out there right now, all things considered.

This is what Matt Campbell liked most about this particular version of the Hyundai Kona: Accurate range claims, Excellent electric efficiency, Smart technology

The Hyundai Kona SUV competes with similar models like the Hyundai Venue, Suzuki Jimny and Mazda CX-3 in the Under $25k category category.

The 2020 Hyundai Kona carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1300 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

The Hyundai Kona is also known as the Hyundai Kauai (Portugal) and the Hyundai Encino (China) in markets outside Australia.

Hyundai Kona 2020 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Kona here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What electric car should I buy?

    We can understand your feelings about the centrally-mounted screen in the Tesla, though you do get used to it surprisingly quickly.

    As for the other models you’ve mentioned, we’ve had to get the crystal ball out to attempt to answer you!

    The Polestar 2 will be on sale by the end of 2020, if all goes to plan. The company will be pushing hard to make that happen. 

    The VW ID3 is likely not going to be here until 2021, likely the mid or latter part of that year. It certainly has a lot of potential, and with pricing set to start below $50,000, it could well be The People’s (Electric) Car. 

    There are other options coming, though it depends on your diary and your budget.

    You could consider the Tesla Model S, which may have been around for a while, but that also means it has a more traceable reliability history. It has a digital instrument cluster in the regular spot as well.

    Have you looked at the Jaguar i-Pace? It has a claimed range of 470 kilometres, though it is on the pricey side of the equation, starting from about $125,000.

    Indeed, a high price tag is a common theme among those EVs with big battery capacity and expansive driving range, because you’re basically covering the cost of the batteries with your money.

    For instance, there’s the Audi e-tron quattro, which is due here in early 2020. That model will have a range of “more than 400 kilometres”, and - we suspect - a price tag above $120,000. 

    The Mercedes EQC is about to go on sale, too. Range for that mid-size SUV is pegged at about 450 kilometres, but again, you can expect a high price tag.

    If 2021 isn’t too long to wait, there’s the Volvo XC40 Recharge coming then. Based on our previous experience with Volvo XC40s, it’ll be a great small SUV, with predicted range of 400km - though we think that’s understating it, because it has a 78kWh battery pack, and it has AWD too.

    At the more affordable end - though admittedly still not quite meeting your expectations for range - there’s the very impressive Hyundai Kona Electric, which has a WLTP range of 449km, and a price tag of around $65k. It isn’t all-wheel drive though.

    And MG is about to launch a real upstart in the segment, with the ZS EV hitting showrooms soon for $46,990 drive-away, albeit with a range of 262km. It’s also FWD only. 

    The Mini Cooper SE will also arrive in mid-2020, with pricing set to be less than $60k. But again, a range of 270km will likely rule it out for your needs, and its 2WD as well.

    Another new small EV due next year is the Mazda MX-30. Pricing is still to be confirmed, and range isn’t great at about 300km. It’s FWD too. 

    In short, at this point in time - and out towards the end of 2020 - it looks like you’ll either need to spend a big amount of money on a premium EV to get the best range possible, or you’ll have to get used to the Model 3’s screen. You could always get an aftermarket head-up display fitted…

  • Hyundai Kona 2018: Speed-reading error

    Ah, the perennial fast speedo! It’s a problem that affects every car on the road, as carmakers are not allowed to make a speedo that is slow. But it is allowed to sell a speedo that is fast, at least within a specified tolerance. It can’t simply be fixed, you have to put up with it. Presumably you have an alternative device that gives you a more accurate speed-reading and you should rely on that.
