The new 2024 Hyundai Kona is bigger than its predecessor, and so is its starting price. The new model starts nearly $2000 higher than before, with the base SE coming in at $25,435, a $1960 increase over the smaller 2023 Kona. Hyundai says the 2024 model will arrive at US dealerships this summer; The Kona Electric, also redesigned for 2024, will arrive later in the fall and we don’t yet have a price for the EV.
The SE and $26,785 SEL models both come with a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter inline-four that produces 147 horsepower and is paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. There’s a bigger price increase for the top trim levels, the N Line and Limited, which come with a more powerful 190-hp turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four engine. The N Line is priced at $31,985, a $2800 increase over last year, and the Limited starts at $32,985, a $2700 increase from last year. The turbo model swaps the previous seven-speed dual-clutch automatic for a traditional torque-converter eight-speed automatic.
Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is a $1500 option across the board. As before, the FWD model has a torsion beam rear suspension while the AWD model has an independent multi-link setup.
The only notable optional package is the $2200 convenience package available for the SEL that adds features including a digital gauge cluster, heated front seats, wireless charging, a power driver’s seat and several driver assistance systems. There are also some extra-cost paint options including a $450 two-tone color scheme for the N Line available in red, white or gray with a black roof.
We’ve yet to drive the new 2024 Kona to see how it stacks up against the old model from behind, but stay tuned for our review soon.
