Hyundai Kona

Segment: Subcompact Crossover
NEXT STAGE: Redesign in 2023

Hyundai’s other pint-sized crossover is expected to go on sale by the end of 2023. The styling is more EV-leaning, with a lightbar that stretches across the model’s front end.

The 2024 Kona is 5.9 inches longer and nearly 1 inch wider and its wheelbase increases by 2.4 inches.

The Kona EV is equipped with a standard 48.6-kWh battery offering a 197-mile range and 133 hp. When equipped with a 64.8-kWh battery, range increases to 260 miles and horsepower goes up to 201. The larger battery can recoup 80 percent of its power in 43 minutes using 400-volt fast charging.

Gasoline variants have a more rugged bumper featuring a skid plate design and chunkier black wheel arch cladding. The Kona N Line sits lower to the ground and is more aggressively styled in the front and rear, with a wing-shaped bumper. The standard gasoline-powered Kona offers a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with 147 hp, while N Line and Limited trim levels are equipped with a turbocharged 1.6-liter 4-cylinder making 190 hp.

NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2026

A minor freshening is expected in early 2026.
