2020 Hyundai Kona is expected to hit the market with no major visual updates. After some shuffling of safety equipment and features for the previous model, this car may come as a carryover model in the upcoming year. Thus, we can still expect identical funky looks.
We cannot deny that the Kona’s funky appearance is the one that makes it stand out on the street. Inside, the existing Kona is slightly more toned down than outside. But, it offers several impressive touches like the sporty steering wheel and bright contrasting accents which make the interior more interesting.
With no visual updates on the design and feature for the 2019 model year, we look forward to the 2020 Kona to offer more standard features or simply remain the same. If it comes to be true, you can expect some standard features like power locks and power windows, 16-inch wheels, and many more.
2020 Hyundai Kona Review and Updates
Under the hood, we expect the 2020 Kona to keep its 2.0L four-cylinder engine which generates 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be supported by a six-speed automatic gearbox. Moreover, it’s also expected to offer another optional engine: a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder engine.
The turbocharged engine is supposed to crank out 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. This optional engine will pair with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Then, the front-wheel-drive will remain standard while an all-wheel drive is going to be an option. This engine is supposed to boast powerful performance.
Then, how are about the other features of 2020 Hyundai Kona? Since the safety system has got a major update in 2019, we expect it to remain the same. It means we can look forward to some features like a lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking, driver-attention warning, and some others.
On the other hand, the electric version of Kona seems to receive a lot of major updates. This is because the automaker has announced a range of upgrades for the 2020 model year. Among the new upgrades, the faster-charging feature becomes the most notable ones.
Hyundai Kona will take around 6 hours and 10 minutes for a full charge using 7.2 kW AC Wall Box Charger. while the 2.8 kW Portable Charger will take 19 hours.
Hyundai Kona Price and Lease Deals
Actually, there’s no exact release date for the 2020 Kona. Pricing also remains unclear for both standard and electric model. So, we need to stay tuned for the upcoming updates. But, we guess that the price won’t be so different from the current model year. It can be around $21,000 to $29,000.
The lease deals of 2020 Kona are not available yet. We need to wait for the car to be released on the market to get the deals. While waiting for the upcoming model, you may be interested to know the current deal for 2019 Kona which is around $229 for 36 months.
In conclusion, the upcoming Kona won’t receive a lot of updates in the expected 2020 model year. But, the electric version may gain a series of upgrades that make it a better option on the market. That’s all things to expect from the 2020 Hyundai Kona.
