The new generation 2024 Hyundai Kona has been unveiled. The images and details of the updated Hyundai SUV have been released. A completely revamped SUV, it will continue its bet on electrification with hybrid (HEV) and 100% electric variants.
The new 2024 Hyundai Kona makes its debut. Hyundai has revealed the first images and details of the new generation of its popular SUV. A model that has been completely refurbished and introduced with important new features. The second-generation Kona will maintain the commitment to electrification of the models we can currently find in dealerships.
There are changes not only in terms of exterior design or technical equipment. The dimensions of the vehicle have also changed. The new Kona has transformed into a larger SUV, almost on the same level as the SEAT Ateca. Let’s review the main keys of a model destined to play a leading role in Europe.
When will it be available? There’s still plenty of time to see the new 2024 Hyundai Kona in European dealerships. Hyundai has confirmed it will reveal more details in the coming months. As with the Korean brand, the rest of the information will be released gradually. Today’s price is unknown.
Regarding the mechanical part, Hyundai has yet to confirm specific details but has announced that the new Kona will be available with a thermal engine, a self-charging hybrid (HEV), and a 100% electric version. In the absence of official confirmation, we can assume that 48-volt mild hybrid technology (MHEV) will be present in the hot version.
Appearances aside, if we step inside, we quickly find ourselves surrounded by cozy surroundings. Changes in vehicle dimensions positively impact the space available in the passenger compartment. The driving position is digitally connected. Combining two 12.3-inch wide screens allows you to enjoy digital instrumentation and the “nerve center” that manages the infotainment system.
The ambient lighting system is also new and, according to the brand, helps improve user experience and comfort. The automatic transmission is located behind the steering wheel. This location is key to providing more space in the central tunnel. Although no specific figures were given, special emphasis was placed on maximizing cargo space behind the second row of seats.
Just take a quick look at the pictures in this article to see the significant evolution the Kona’s exterior has undergone. During the design process of the new generation, the EV variant was used as a starting point. The design was subsequently adapted to the remaining variants available in the series.
The front has been completely redesigned. It looks clean and distinguished. A strip of LED light runs across the top from edge to edge. The main optical group is located lower and in a vertical format. The shape of the bumper is also eye-catching. The side view reveals the true nature of the model. Plastic bumpers protect the lower body and match the roof rack.
At the rear, we will find some LED lights, configured similarly to the headlights. Seamless horizontal light enhances the sense of width. Specific design details depend on the version. The new Kona Electric incorporates pixel graphic details on the front grille and rear bumper. It also comes with some specific tires.
As mentioned before, the new Kona is a larger SUV. The length of the new model has grown to 4,355 mm. They are 150 mm longer than the previous generation. Width has also increased by 25 mm, and the wheelbase has been extended by 60 mm.
