2024 Hyundai Kona
2024 Hyundai Kona
The 2024 Hyundai Kona enters its second generation with an array of choices for potential buyers under the hood including an impressive all-electric model with 418 kilometres of range. Beyond the electric option, the Kona also offers other powertrains, including a sporty N Line version, catering to various preferences within the small SUV segment. The new Kona also gains more interior space, a stylish and modern exterior that will get noticed on the road, and multiple new and advanced technologies that make this generation the safest and connected Kona ever.
The 2024 Hyundai Kona is striking with its one-of-a-kind design that's certain to catch the eye.
The 2024 Hyundai Kona stands out with its distinctive exterior design. Designed as an electric vehicle first and then a traditional gas-powered model, the redesigned Kona features a bold, modern, and elegant exterior style. The Kona is longer and wider than its previous iteration, boasting a length of 4,350 mm and a wheelbase that's expanded by 60 mm. Furthermore, its width has increased to 1,825 mm, ensuring not just a commanding road presence but also enhanced interior volume.
A testament to Hyundai's commitment to performance fused with design, the 2024 Kona Electric showcases an impressive drag coefficient of a mere 0.27. This aerodynamic efficiency is most evident in its streamlined nose and rear tailgate design. The dynamic chrome lines that traverse from the belt line to the rear spoiler, combined with the integrated centre high-mounted stop lamp, further enhance its bold character.
The 2024 Hyundai Kona Electric variant introduces innovative lighting elements, adding to its distinctive appearance. The Pixelated Seamless Horizon Lamp and Pixel graphics offer a fresh and contemporary flair. These unique lighting features, coupled with a range of vibrant exterior colour options, ensure the new Kona stands out. Hyundai has ensured that the Kona's exterior resonates with a diverse clientele, mirroring the varied lifestyles and preferences of its future owners.
Hyundai has redefined the concept of interior space in compact sport utility vehicles with the new 2024 Kona. Drawing inspiration from its augmented dimensions and EV-centric design ethos, Hyundai offers an expansive passenger area tailored to cater to varied user lifestyles. The dashboard is particularly noteworthy, featuring a sleek, floating horizontal C-Pad that seamlessly integrates dual 12.3-inch panoramic displays for the multimedia system and digital instrument cluster. This new layout not only modernizes the interior, but also ensures seamless user interactions, making all of the new features of the Kona easy to reach and use.
Efficiency and ergonomics dominate the Kona's revamped interior layout. The shift-by-wire gear selector's migration from the center console to a position behind the steering wheel is a strategic move, freeing up valuable console space. This, combined with the repositioned driver controls, optimizes the centre console's utility, highlighted by innovative features like a rotational cupholder. Furthermore, Hyundai has introduced slimmer front seats, ensuring more legroom for rear passengers, while the innovative Curveless Bench Seat in the second row augments seating comfort. Enhancing the vehicle's versatility, the second-row seats can be fully folded, unveiling a generous cargo space of 723 litres which can be expanded up to a whopping 1,803 litres, ensuring that users never have to compromise on storage or convenience.
The 2024 Hyundai Kona showcases a leap in vehicle connectivity, underlined by its cutting-edge Over-the-Air (OTA) technology that keeps all of the Kona’s features updated remotely. In a first for Hyundai in Canada, the 2024 Kona introduces the advanced Digital Key 2 system. Utilizing near-field communication technology, owners can bid farewell to traditional car keys. Instead, they can rely on their NFC-enabled smartphones or smartwatches to manage vehicle access, from locking to starting the engine. Furthermore, the refined version of Digital Key 2 grants the luxury of sharing access to the new Kona with others. Surround View Monitor is another highlight of the new Kona, providing drivers with selectable viewpoints to ensure the highest level of visibility, especially when parking in tight spots.
The Kona Electric variant brings to the fore some distinctive technological elements. Among these are the innovative "frunk" storage, dynamic grille shutters, and the ground-breaking Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function. With its bi-directional charging capability, this function can be a lifeline during power outages or adventures, powering devices or charging electrical gear from small burners to camping essentials. The vehicle's front charging port ultimately doubles as a power source when stationary. Driving becomes an intuitive experience with the introduction of the i-PEDAL which can be used to slow down, stop, and of course accelerate using a single pedal. Complementing this is the Smart Regenerative System, which adapts in real-time to traffic patterns, optimizing the vehicle's regenerative braking prowess.
The 2024 Hyundai Kona returns with versions also offered in 2023. However, each model has been improved with new technology, enhanced interior and exterior designs, and a more spacious and versatile interior.
