Feel Like a Hero: Behind the Wheel of the Hyundai Kona

Read 3 min(s) 

Well buckle up, because we’re about to take a wild ride with the Hyundai Kona. It’s always been a bit of an odd duck in the automotive world, with its plastic cladding and quirky styling. But hey, at least it’s memorable, right?

And let’s not forget about the Iron Man special edition from 2019. I mean, who doesn’t want to drive around in a car that looks like it belongs to a superhero? Okay, maybe some people don’t, but still.

It’s like RoboCop and a car had a baby, and that baby grew up to be a speed demon with a drag coefficient of 0.27. Those “active air flaps” are no joke.

But it’s not just about looks. The new Kona is also a bit bigger, with 60mm more wheelbase for added cabin room. And those front seats are 30% thinner, which means more legroom for your passengers. Plus, with the new “weightless” front seats, you can drive for hours without feeling fatigued. Although, let’s be real, if you’re stuck in a four-hour tailback, you’re probably going to feel fatigued no matter what.

And speaking of being stuck somewhere, have you ever been trying to charge your car at night and just can’t see what you’re doing? Fear not, my friends, because the new Kona comes with a heated charging flap and a light. No more fumbling around in the dark with your phone in your mouth.

But wait, there’s more! The new Kona offers two powertrain options, with up to 215 horsepower and 304 miles of range. And with battery preconditioning and smart regen, you can be sure you’re getting the most out of your battery. Plus, with V2L functionality, you can run all sorts of electronics off your car battery. Who needs a generator when you’ve got a Kona?

All in all, the new Hyundai Kona is a force to be reckoned with. It’s stylish, spacious, and has all the bells and whistles you could want in an EV. And who knows, maybe someday there’ll be a superhero edition that’ll make you feel like a hero on the road.
