Hyundai has released a teaser image of its new Kona compact SUV.
Named after the Kona district in Hawaii, Hyundai’s new compact SUV will stand alongside the Santa Fe and Tucson in the marque’s lineup. Although a full reveal is expected in coming weeks, not much is known about the Kona at this stage but Hyundai says that, “The Kona has also been developed with a focus on enhancing driving dynamics, as Hyundai looks to set new performance standards for the compact SUV segment. Kona delivers best-in-class interior space and innovative design features that hint at the future direction of the brand's next generation of SUV models.”
The teaser image shows the sleek headlight design for the new model. The Kona will rival cars such as the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Opel Mokka X, among others. With the recent arrival of the new Hyundai Creta, it doesn’t seem plausible that the Kona will be offered in South Africa, but never say never.
We will keep you informed as more details are revealed.
