What is the Difference Between Each Hyundai Kona Trim?
The 2020 Hyundai small SUV, the Kona, comes in various trim levels and configurations. There are five total trim levels, with three additional trim levels for the Hyundai Kona Electric Vehicle (EV) configurations. To determine which model is best for you, here is a 2020 Kona trim comparison:
2020 Kona SE
The SE trim level features a 147-horsepower 2.0-liter I-4 engine along with a six-speed automatic transmission. It comes standard with four-wheel drive with a fuel efficiency of 27 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, but it does have the option of adding on all-wheel drive.
Every Kona trim level comes standard with lane keep assist, forward collision avoidance, and a driver attention warning. Additionally, connectivity features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, and the SE comes with a 7-inch color Infotainment System touchscreen.
On the exterior, the SE features 16-inch alloy wheels, and it is available in seven paint colors: Ultra Black, Chalk White, Sonic Silver, Sunset Orange, Pulse Red, Thunder Gray, and Surf Blue.
2020 Kona SEL
The SEL shares many similarities with the SE level. However, Hyundai Kona SEL reviews consistently advertise the SEL’s upgraded technology. On this level, you’ll get more safety features, such as blind-spot collision warning, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.
It also offers a premium experience with features like heated side mirrors, heated seats, an external temperature display, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, and SiriusXM compatibility. In terms of Hyundai Kona SEL colors, these include the same seven colors available for the SE listed above with an added exterior upgrade of 17-inch alloy wheels, roof side rails, and rear privacy glass.
2020 Kona SEL Plus
Of course, the SEL Plus shares most features with the base SEL, but it adds a few extras through the Hyundai Kona tech package. Upgraded features include a power sunroof (not available on lower trims), driver’s seat power adjustability, and a premium Infinity audio system, which has an eight-speaker stereo.
2020 Kona Limited
This trim level is where the Kona reaches new heights. Internally, the Kona Limited features a 1.6-liter turbo I-4 engine with 175 horsepower and 195-lbs. of torque. This engine produces great fuel efficiency with 28 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. The exterior is upgraded with 18-inch alloy wheels and LED head- and taillights, while the interior features include leather seats, automatic climate control, and an addition of Lime Twist to the color palette.
2020 Kona Ultimate
This trim level offers some impressive electronic features, such as a parking distance warning, high-beam assist, and 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, a head-up display, pedestrian detection, and forward collision avoidance.
This most exciting feature available for this trim level, though, is smart cruise control, which is a new addition for the 2020 model. Smart Cruise Control combines the functionality of any typical cruise control system with added radar sensors to help your vehicle maintain a fixed distance behind the vehicle you’re following.
2020 Kona Electric
The Kona is also available in three EV trim levels: the SEL, Limited, and Ultimate. In general, these trim levels follow the forms offered in the gasoline-based models, but the Ultimate trim level gets some additions: rain-sensing wipers, ventilated front seats, a 10.3-inch touchscreen, and the Infinity Sound System.
