Prototypes of the new generation Hyundai Kona SUV took advantage of the warm weather in early summer to remove some of the masks to give a better idea of what the 2024 model will look like.
The compact SUV is located above Hyundai’s Bayon and below the Tuscon, and will hit models like the Volkswagen T-Roc when it hits salons next year. So it’s no surprise that Hyundai engineers have a VW model in their hands for comparison on recent trips.
Previous espionage footage has shown Kona wearing a very full mask, which reveals very little about styling, but these latest photos are a little informative. Like the current Kona, the new headlights have a different design, but the top headlights in the latest car are actually DRLs, not headlights, mounted parallel to the floor, not angular.
But in addition to the side DRLs, there seems to be a third section in the middle of the car that is visible on the front edge of the hood, which Kona actually features a special winding strip that controls the full width of the car. We’ve seen a similar design on the back of most cars, but using this trick on the front gives the Kona an instantly recognizable face when lit.

The minimal camouflage of this car also allows you to see the front bumper of the 2024 Kona, which depicts a pair of triangles combined with a number plate. The fact that we can see the grid through the space in the production car up to the radiator clearly shows that Hyundai once again offers Kona with ICE drives, as well as clean electricity.
Depending on the market, current models are less than 118 horsepower (120 horsepower) or 276 hp in hot Kona N. (280 horsepower) comes with a wide range of engines. in a Kona Electric EV with a hybrid and two-dimensional battery. Buyers will also be able to choose between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. We expect such a wide range of cars in 2024 with a starting price of less than $ 25,000 / 23,000 pounds, but the high-quality Kona EV will get a larger battery to help improve its official power rating in its EPA rating. The driving distance is 258 miles (415 km).
These pictures do not show the interior of the Kona, but we know from the previous spy frames that the dashboard is influenced by the Ioniq 5 EV style and has a large screen that extends from the driver’s door to the dashboard. combines both a center line and a set of digital tools, as well as a touch screen information entertainment system.
