2024 Hyundai Kona Specifications and Details

The 2024 Hyundai Kona remains faithful to its commuter car essence by combining efficiency, practicality, affordability, and style. Despite its six-inch body extension and a slightly higher starting price of $25,435, it still embodies affordability and its original charm. This Kona boasts a rugged appearance, with 2 power options. A standard 147-hp 2.0-liter engine and an optional 190-hp turbocharged 1.6-liter. Inside, it embraces a futuristic design with dual 12.3-inch displays on the dashboard. Thanks to a longer wheelbase and slimmer front seat backs, the 2024 Kona offers more spaciousness, maintaining its appeal as an urban-friendly vehicle.

The 2024 Hyundai Kona embraces a simplified and modernized design while retaining its basic shape. It features a sleek razor-thin running light stretching across the front, eliminating the old grille and introducing active shutters for improved airflow. The rear follows suit with a sleek red running light spanning corner to corner. The N Line takes it up a notch with body-colored cladding, a rear spoiler, and N specific bumpers and wheels.

Interior and Features

4 Drive Time

The 2024 Hyundai Kona boasts a modern interior with dual 12.3-inch displays which serves as a reconfigurable gauge display. The other as a large touchscreen for the infotainment system. We expect Hyundai to update its user interface and possibly include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Hyundai has relocated the shifter to the column, creating storage space between the front seats, although this storage compartment lacks a closing mechanism. Physical climate controls remain, providing convenience. Additional features include optional heated and ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, and ample USB-C connections for charging.

Engine and Performance

Both previous-generation engines return in the new Kona lineup. The SE and SEL models feature a somewhat anemic 147-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Stepping up to the N Line and Limited trims brings the peppier 190-hp turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder. The turbocharged engine now benefits from an eight-speed torque-converter automatic, a smoother choice than the previous generation’s seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. In our tests, the previous turbocharged Kona accelerated to 60 mph in 7.3 seconds. However, with the slight increase in weight and size of the new model, a slight decrease in acceleration time is expected. In its front-wheel-drive configuration, the new Kona achieves an EPA-rated 31 mpg combined with the 2.0-liter engine and 28 mpg combined with the turbo 1.6-liter.


The 2024 Hyundai Kona lineup starts at $24,100 for the base SE trim, marking an increase of approximately $2,000 compared to the 2023 SE model. The SEL grade, likely the most popular choice, comes in at $25,450. The top-tier Kona Limited sees a price bump of $2,700 over the 2023 version, totaling $31,650. Interestingly, you can opt for all-wheel drive on any of the four Kona grades for an additional $1,500.
