Hyundai teases new Kona B-segment SUV

A teaser images of the Hyundai Kona small SUV due to arrive in Australia in the second half of 2017

The arrival of KONA marks Hyundai Motor's first move into the B-SUV segment (Sub-compact SUV segment) and is set to expand Hyundai's SUV portfolio.

Plenty of subcompact crossovers look and feel more like hatchbacks, but Hyundai says the Kona has "true SUV genes".

All the brand will now say about the Kona is that it will be a B-segment SUV with a "progressive style that reflects the lifestyle of modern customers". Continuing Hyundai's tradition of naming crossover and SUV models, KONA has also be named after travel destinations like Creta, Santa Fe, Tucson and Veracruz.

The South Korean automobile manufacturer's newest addition derived its name from the Kona district in the Big Island of Hawaii.




The company just released a teaser image of this Hyundai Kona SUV that is supposed to make a debut in the show. The energetic spirit and unique lifestyle of the residents are said to match the 2018 Hyundai Kona's dynamic character as well as its innovative and practical design.

The Hyundai Kona was previewed by the Hyundai Intrado concept in 2014 and is expected to ride on the modified Hyundai i20 platform. Hyundai offers a full range of vehicles from the award-winning New Generation i10 city auto through to the capable Santa Fe SUV and iLoad LCV.

"We are determined to open up a new era in the domestic and overseas SUV market, and we hope people have high expectations for us to provide the best product of its class", said a Hyundai official.
