With the summer sun shining down and the weather growing warmer, you are itching to get out and hit the golf course for a few holes with your friends. But, can you manage to wedge all of your golf clubs in the trunk of your Hyundai Kona without damaging any of them in the process?
Generally, the Hyundai Kona SUV, in either the hybrid or all-electric model, come with average storage space in the backseat and trunk which can fit a half or a full set of golf clubs with the backseat folded down or backseat left in its original upright position.
As a rule, you should always be sure to account for your backseat and trunk space if you are looking to stash your golf clubs in the back of your Hyundai Kona. Read on to see how the Hyundai Kona Hybrid and Hyundai Kona All-Electric match up when it comes to comparing storage capacity for your golf clubs.
Generally, when a new SUV hits the market there is a rush to see how it compares to the rest of the SUVs currently selling. The Hyundai Kona offers various iterations of the Kona model, all of which offer similar size storage capacity with only a few tweaks in a couple of models that may decrease the capacity you have in the backseat and trunk.
The Hyundai Kona offers standard basic, premium and sport level models that only vary by a few feet in storage capacity size, which means that any model of the Hyundai Kona will fit some amount of golf clubs. No one wants to be told that their car can’t fit their golf clubs, so which Hyundai Kona fits golf clubs without much hassle?
We will take a look at the Hybrid and All-Electric model of the Hyundai Kona and will reveal exactly the kind of space you will have for loading your golf clubs in the trunk of the SUV so that you won’t miss your tee time!
The Hyundai Kona Hybrid model offers a flexible fuel option with the delivery of a bit more backseat storage capacity than its sibling models. Which is great news for avid golfers who drive or might rent a Hyundai Kona Hybrid and need to take along their full set of golf clubs when they hit the course for a day of golf.
There is a lot to be said for having more than the obvious perks of owning a hybrid vehicle. The Hyundai Kona Hybrid boasts a little above average, yet a fair amount of space in the backseat and trunk for all of your golf club transportation needs. The exact storage specifications for the Hyundai Kona Hybrid are listed below.
- 374-litres (13.2 cubic feet) with the backseats not folded down
- 1,156 litres (40.8 cubic feet) with the backseats folded down
As a rule, when loading in your golf clubs to the back of the Hyundai Kona Hybrid, do a test run and see what works best. Try with the backseats up and down as well as with your clubs in and out of the bag to ensure that no damage occurs to the clubs while you’re driving to the golf course.
A handy tip for transporting your golf clubs, wrap the club heads in a towel individually to protect against any possible bumping or shaking during transport which would lead to damage and a very unhappy arrival at the golf course. There is nothing worse than pulling out your favorite putter and seeing it bent or scraped from trying to fit it in the trunk!
The Hyundai Kona All-Electric model offers a sleek modern approach to the future of electric cars. Where the Hyundai Kona All-Electric struggles is with the average backseat and trunk storage capacity to be able to manage a full set of golf clubs and be able to carry passengers at the same time.
This does not mean that you can’t take your golf clubs on the road and hit the golf course. Transporting your golf clubs in a Hyundai Kona All-Electric will take a bit of patience, finesse, and possibly leaving a few clubs at home if they are not desperately needed. The exact specifications of the storage capacity for the Hyundai Kona All-Electric are listed below:
- 332-litre (11.3 cubic feet) load space in the backseat without the backseats folded down
- 1,164-litres (41.1 cubic feet) of load space in the trunk and backseat with the backseats folded down
With the Hyundai Kona All-Electric, you can absolutely transport your golf clubs in the trunk. The downside to this is that you will lose space to carry passengers as the backseat will have to go down to give you the extra space to fit a full set of golf clubs comfortably.
There are plenty of options on how to position your bag in the Hyundai Kona All-Electric to ensure that your clubs make it to tee time without any issues such as with your golf clubs being out of the bag and riding separately from the bag to truly maximize your space and get all your gear to the course in one go.
Generally, having a hybrid or all-electric Hyundai Kona would perfectly complement the ever-changing environment that we live in when it comes to fuel efficiency and modern style. Unfortunately, when it comes to the Hyundai Kona, it leaves more to hope for than it gives when looking for space to stash your golf clubs for a round on the course.
This is not to say that it is impossible to load your golf clubs into the trunk as the Hyundai Kona has the capacity to fit a full set of clubs if the backseats are folded flat and with a bit of strategic maneuvering. In total, with a bit of golf club Jenga and if you don’t intend on carrying passengers in the backseat, you can get your golf clubs to the course without too much issue.
