The new generation Hyundai Kona has been tested for espionage, which gave us a new look at its design.
Although this prototype is covered in camouflage and body, it is much clearer than the 2024 Kona, shot by our spy photographers in late April. The front is instantly recognizable thanks to the full-width LED light path found in the Hyundai Staria.
We also see that Hyundai has overhauled the design of Kona’s front bumper, redesigned the grille and created triangular air intakes. The design of the headlights was also changed and their shape was angular.

The camouflage hides most of the other design details of the new Kona. The shape of the rear fascia is similar to the previous model, it has a high back cover and a small window at the back. It also sports a split LED taillight design.
Previous spy photos of Kona in 2024 showed that its interior will be redesigned and inspired by the fully electric Ioniq 5. The most obvious change will be the only large screen with a cluster of digital devices and an information entertainment display. Directly below this screen are simple air vents, and under them are the Start / Stop button and various buttons for media controls. A new steering wheel is also displayed.
The details of the force mechanism are still unknown. In this regard, the new Kona 2023 is a hybrid 1.6-liter, like the Kia Niro, with 139 hp. and can produce 195 pound-feet (264 Nm) of torque. The new Kona EV has a 64.8 kWh battery pack and 201 hp. may receive a power unit from Niro EV, which uses an electric motor, and a new performance-oriented Kona N is expected.
