Details of the updated 2020 Hyundai Kona range have been revealed, headlining the changes is more standard safety kit on entry-level variants.
Hyundai will continue to offer the familiar Go, Active, Elite and Highlander trim levels with prices starting at $24,000 plus on-road costs.
The entry-level Go variant will now feature autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, also lane keep assist and a driver attention warning as standard.
Active models also benefit from the boost in safety tech, though there is a trade-off to keep the cost down. The 8.0-inch infotainment system with satellite navigation, DAB+ digital radio and Krell 8-speaker premium audio have been deleted, replaced by a 7.0-inch screen with smartphone mirroring.
Elite and Highlander grades still use a camera and radar-based autonomous braking system that incorporates pedestrian detection, along with adaptive cruise control.
Drivetrains are carried over, meaning all grades are available with either a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated 110kW/180Nm four-cylinder petrol engine mated to a six-speed automatic that drives the front wheels, or a 1.6-litre 130kW/265Nm four-cylinder turbo-petrol paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and all-wheel drive.
Available options include premium paint ($595) or a two-tone roof pack for the Highlander (no cost) which deletes the sunroof.
