Has anyone on here ordered a new 2024 Kona and received it? Ordered a Kona Nline S about a month ago, and delivery is estimated to be six to seven months.

I have one on order - same version - but am seriously considering cancelling it. There appears to be major concerns with the Smart Cruise Control, which unfortunately I did not test on the test drive. The Smart Cruise Control slows unexpectedly and does not hold the speed. Has anyone heard of this concern please?

Yes, having seen the new version in a showroom in west sussex I placed an order for the New 2024 version Kona EV in early october.
Took delivery of it on 4th November !!
Only covered 130 miles so far, taking it back to dealer next week as on collection the Android auto Does NOT work.... it is a wired connection, but a Hyundai press release advises since September 2023 all new EV konas should have a software upgrade to a wireless connection. See what happens next week.

I have a 2023 1.6 Hybrid and don't know if it is the same Cruise Control, but it does vary very slightly depending on gradients. Only going up or down by 1mph.

See my earlier comment about my brand new ... 6th November UK Kona ev Android Auto. Current mileage 192 miles. Been back to have the September software upgrade ! Why is a November delivered car not released with the upgrades ??? Anyway new software completed ... Now wireless phone connection, so no need for usb lead BUT if using an Android phone with Android 12 or above ANDROID AUTO NOT AVAILABLE.... still ok on iphone though.
Car in Ultimate format with the 19" wheels lovely, but lacking the auto tilt on mirrors on reverse why ? A few niggling issues, car is so new (in UK) that dealers don't have answers to problems. Could do better

It may seem a bit negative, but now discovering various elements of my new car, there are a few things that are not included. Having traded in a16 month old Tucson PHEV.....
I purchased the new 2024 model Kona ev in Ultimate format with the very nice eco suede Charcoal colour interior rather but being a new release made several enquiries with the supplier prior to order. I didn't see the point of the additional upgrade to have remote parking, never used on my Tucson, nor the full leather memory seat as only I drive the new Kona.
But was advised that things like the "cornering" lights and the "door handle/puddle lights" were available.... I even enquired via Hyundai uk ....... never heard back from them. But these are NOT available on this ultimate car .... at least not UK versions. A little dissapointed to say the least.
Media screen/Infotainment purported to be good, but user interface not as friendly as in the Tucson.
Yes it is a nice car to drive, very quiet and acceleration more than adequate, I keep the charge at around the 60-80%, and economy about 1/3rd the price of petrol. Plus not having to pay £560 tax (Tucson) I am content at the moment and as I purchased on pcp so will see how long I hang on to this ...... perhaps other options to consider next time

Ordered a 1.6t gdi N Line S in silver on 23 October and so far dealership has said Feb delivery but holding out for something sooner...
Best stop reading the comments until I get it otherwise I might cancel. I guess the more positive comments are not shared here!
Nothing like when I had a LR Velar though.

Hi all,

I’ve had the NLine hybrid since September 1, and it’s going great so far. My only issue is a few niggles with the infotainment but hopefully this November update will fix someone the problems when it eventually arrives (or becomes available through the app)
