What’s new in the 2021 Hyundai Kona?

For the 2021 model year, despite only being a couple years old, the Hyundai Kona is undergoing its very first mid-generation refresh as its exterior and interior each get a facelift. The Hyundai Kona has been immensely popular since its debut in 2018 as part of the fast-growing subcompact crossover segment that somewhat ignited the utility vehicle revolution. We thought we’d highlight some of what’s new in the 2021 Hyundai Kona for you today so that you know what to expect!

“Interestingly, there’s a happy vibe that I feel is common with many Kona drivers. Our design inspiration stems from this positive spirit, and this is a dedication to all the adventurers out there who explore life with a smile.”

– SangYup Lee, Senior Vice President & Head, Hyundai Global Design Center

Design Enhancements

We won’t highlight every single change to the design, as you can see them in the images. Just know that both the front and rear ends have been given updated design cues to introduce an even sleeker and more sophisticated exterior.

Other Updates

Highlighting some of the other updates outside of the new design cues is the increased amount of cargo capacity and rear seat legroom. This enhances the vehicle’s versatility, but also improves the comfort of rear-seat passengers thanks to the extra space. In addition, plenty of technologies and feature having to do with connectivity and convenience have been updated, including the latest versions of Hyundai Blue Link and Hyundai SmartSense.

Kona N Line

Perhaps most exciting of all is the introduction of the first-ever Kona N Line. The 2021 model year is really starting to see a major expansion in the N Division vehicles the brand has to offer, and we couldn’t be more excited. We’ll be sure to fill you in with more details on the 2021 Hyundai Kona N Line as they become available.
