An all-new Hyundai Kona has arrived on the scene. Although many of the powertrain options are carry over items, the vehicle rides on a new platform.

It is larger inside and out than the previous model and wears more modern sheetmetal. Of course, there’s still plenty of choice with the Kona including drivetrains, engines, and even an all-electric option.

Hyundai Kona vs Kia Seltos Comparison: Sub-Compact Siblings

Both Hyundai and Kia have spent the last few years breaking sales records and earning plaudits along the way.

What better segment for two of the most competitive brands to duke it out than the fastest-growing one?

The two brands took different approaches to the sub-compact SUV segment. The Kona was out the gate first, a pint-sized loveable weirdo that always felt like more of a hatchback on stilts.

2024 Hyundai Kona Review: First Drive

Growing up: we all do it.

When Hyundai’s Kona burst onto the scene back in 2018, the world was a different place. The Tucson was still compact and the Venue wasn’t even a thing. The Kona was the Korean brand’s first volley into the subcompact SUV segment, its tidy footprint and quirky design making it a fun choice.

But just as the class itself has grown, so has the competition. What once seemed tidy now seems cramped, and thus the second-generation Kona debuts a much larger form for 2024. Is this a simple growth spurt, or has the Kona found more maturity with age?
