2023/24 Hyundai Kona: new spy photos...





I had almost forgotten about the Hyundai Kona. And, of course, there will be a new generation coming soon.

I test drove the gas (HERE) and EV versions (HERE) a few years ago and was pretty impressed.
It is a nice little car and drives really well. Although the current interior is light years behind what Hyundai and Kia have been doing lately.
I have no doubt the next generation will fix that.

We don't know anything about the next Kona yet, but it's expected to use the same platform as the current one. Just like the 2023 Kia Niro does.
Specs will probably be improved. The current EV model is a great deal. Offering a 258 Miles range for $34 000. Basically taking over the Chevrolet Bolt market these days.

If they can lower the price a little bit more and even add range, the next generation could be quite a hit for Hyundai. Which will have to compete with the upcoming $30 000 Chevrolet Equinox EV soon.

Glad they are making the Kona about the size of the old Tucson, it'll be perfect for the city. The only problem I see with this, is that it will compete with the Seltos and Niro. They need to use better materials and move it slightly upmarket to separate its position. Also, the N models need to have more premium materials. I understand these are supposed to be hard core models, but they lose buyers when they only focus on the boy racer side of the model.
