Hyundai News:Hyundai Mostly Reveals Their New Subcompact Crossover

Recommended Posts

Later this summer, Hyundai will be revealing a new subcompact crossover called the Kona. To prepare us, the company has released some teasers. But thanks to some magic from Photoshop, we have a good idea of what it will look like.

The front end comes with Hyundai's new grille that made its debut on the Sonata and a similar headlight arrangement like the Jeep Cherokee. There is also a little slit above the grille. Other design details on the Kona include black body cladding, significant sculpting on the doors, and a partly blacked-out rear pillar.

We don't any mechanical details, but we're assuming it will be based on the redesigned Accent.

KONA by Hyundai: a true SUV with a progressive character

  • The All-New KONA features a progressive appearance and latest technologies
  • A Hyundai first is the new head-up display with class-leading luminance, supporting safe driving by projecting information directly into the driver’s line of sight
  • The KONA is an important milestone in Hyundai Motor’s journey to become the leading Asian automotive brand in Europe by 2021

30 May 2017 - Ahead of the official unveiling, Hyundai Motor has launched a new video showing further design details of the All-New KONA, the youngest SUV in Hyundai’s European range.

The KONA continues Hyundai’s new design identity, and offers a progressive character and latest technologies to create a unique proposition in the sub-compact SUV segment.

The All-New KONA’s silhouette emphasises the voluminous, aggressive body styling featuring sleek and sharp shapes. Its strong and confident visual presence is characterised by its wide stance and the twin headlamp design. The KONA also features the Cascading Grille, Hyundai’s new family identity.

Besides its progressive design, the All-New KONA offers the latest technology, making premium features more accessible for a convenient and safe driving experience. A new feature - and a Hyundai first - is the head-up display which projects key driving information directly into the driver’s line of sight. The eight-inch projected image with a class-leading luminance of 10,000 candela per square metre guarantees daytime visibility and supports safe driving.

Further information about the All-New Hyundai KONA will be released in the near future, with the official unveiling scheduled for the summer of 2017.

Hyundai tends to use copy cat styling, which can also make their cars look dated quickly since that look was already around for a while before they use it.

They only have 3 crossovers right now, they another under the Tuscan for sure.  Small car segment is the next to drop off, the auto makers that get into sub compact crossovers quick will do well.
