The 2024 Hyundai Kona differs dramatically from its predecessor. With its larger dimensions and Ioniq-inspired cabin, But it appears to be the same beneath the hood. Hyundai disclosed powertrain data for the Korean-market Kona – and most likely the US-market version – and all internal-combustion engines are the same as what we’ve seen in the US model.
Hyundai Kona Interior Concept
The inside of the present Kona is comparable in size to that of a hatchback car of comparable size, and we anticipate the upcoming generation to maintain this trend. This time around, there may be more cargo room, but we’re not anticipating space comparable to the Chevy Suburban behind the back seats. We may see a column-mounted shifter, leather upholstery, and simple yet opulent ambient lighting on the inside.
Hyundai Kona Engine
The Hyundai Kona Hybrid 2024 combines a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with an electric motor for a total output of 104kW and 265Nm, which is transmitted to the front wheels through a dual-clutch gearbox. The basic engine will continue to be a 147-horsepower 2.0-liter inline-four mated to a continuously variable automatic gearbox.

A more powerful turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four engine with 195 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque will be offered, most likely on the sportier N Line variant. The gearbox for this vehicle has yet to be confirmed by Hyundai, however, it previously featured a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. We’re hopeful that the rowdy 286-hp Kona N performance variant will remain, but we may have to wait a bit longer for additional details.
Hyundai Kona Hybrid Suspension
For a tiny SUV, the Kona Hybrid’s suspension is rather reliable. This indicates that this particular automobile has a small amount of a sporty aspect. On the other hand, you notice road imperfections more than in the 2008 Peugeot, which has more of an emphasis on comfort, which is probably more important to most buyers.
The Hyundai Kona Hybrid is priced between £26,315 and £31,615. The prior year’s used Hyundai Kona Hybrid began at £18,990.
