The 2024 Hyundai Kona Limited AWD emerges as a dynamic force in the crossover segment, combining captivating design with robust performance and cutting-edge technology. Having recently experienced this marvel during a media drive, it’s time to dissect the technical intricacies that make the Kona Limited AWD a standout in its class.

Available in multiple trims – SE, SEL, N Line, and Limited – the Kona caters to a diverse range of preferences, offering a customizable driving experience.

The Neoteric Yellow exterior is not just a visual treat but also indicative of Hyundai’s commitment to bold aesthetics. The integration of full LED headlights, daytime running lights, 19″ alloy wheels, body-colored side mirrors with LED turn signals, and LED taillights showcases a meticulous attention to detail. The variable ground clearance of 6.9 inches for FWD and 8.3 inches for RWD underscores the versatility of the Kona.

The power-operated trunk, coupled with a generous cargo volume of 25.5 cubic feet (expandable to 63.7 cubic feet), reflects Hyundai’s emphasis on practicality without compromising on space.

Under the hood, the 1.6-liter turbocharged I4 engine steals the spotlight, generating an impressive 190 horsepower and 195 lb.ft. of torque. Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and HTRAC All-Wheel Drive, the Kona promises a responsive and exhilarating driving experience. The base SE and SEL trims offer a solid 147-hp 2.0 L 4-cylinder engine, catering to varying performance preferences.

The Black on Black interior, adorned with H-Tex Leatherette, exudes a sophisticated ambiance. Technological features such as the Bose Premium Audio system, wireless phone charger, column-mounted shift by wire transmission, and paddle shifters add a touch of luxury and functionality to the driving experience.

The Kona boasts a state-of-the-art tech suite, including a 12.3-inch navigation system supporting Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. These features seamlessly integrate with the driving experience, offering convenience and connectivity on the road.

With a fuel efficiency of 24 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 26 combined, the Kona strikes a commendable balance between performance and fuel economy, making it a practical choice for daily commuting and road trips alike.

Priced competitively, the base Kona starts at $24,100, while the fully loaded Limited model comes in at $34,695, positioning it as an attractive option within its segment.

In conclusion, the 2024 Hyundai Kona Limited AWD seamlessly blends style, performance, and technology. From its eye-catching exterior to the tech-rich interior and dynamic driving capabilities, the Kona stands as a testament to Hyundai’s commitment to delivering a well-rounded and exhilarating driving experience. Whether you’re a tech enthusiast, a performance seeker, or someone who values practicality, the Kona Limited AWD deserves a spot on your automotive radar.
