Hyundai has announced the pricing details of the Kona for the US market, with sales to launch this March.
The new Hyundai Kona’s range kicks off at $19,500 MSRP for the entry-level SE model. Power is provided by a 147hp 2.0-liter engine paired to a standard six-speed automatic transmission.
If you want all-wheel drive, Hyundai will charge you an extra $1,300 while the contrast roof option comes only with the SEL grade which starts from $21,300.
The most powerful version of the Hyundai Kona uses a 175hp turbocharged 1.6-liter engine that comes only with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Prices start from $24,700 for the Limited front-wheel drive version, with the all-wheel drive system commanding the same $1,300 fee. Sitting at the top of the range is the Hyundai Kona Ultimate AWD, priced at $28,700.
Hyundai’s latest crossover is based on a brand new platform, claiming to offer great interior space and good ground clearance. Front-wheel drive models are fitted with a torsion beam suspension at the rear. All-wheel drive Konas get a more sophisticated multi-link layout.
The dashboard hosts an eight-inch infotainment system that comes with standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, along with Sirius XM Radio, HD Radio and Blue Link LTE connectivity services. Other interior features include a wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones and a heads-up display.
Hyundai also offers its smallest crossover to date with a complete range of available active safety systems, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist along with Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
