Auto123.com posted a little teaser bit that they'll be releasing a review of the 2018 Hyundai Kona tomorrow so I'll be looking out for that. Typically publications like this will give teasers and a heads up if there's currently an embargo from what I've seen but they didn't directly say it.

Think there will be a blow up of reviews tomorrow?

Here's a few photos from the gallery they posted

Thanks a lot for posting these pictures because this is the first time I have seen a Kona in white, which compared to all the other colors I have seen, its the best.

White can either make or break a car and if it makes the car, often it makes the vehicle look up-scale... Kona looks up-scale:

I agree!

The white is definitely at the top of my charts right now. I do want to see what it looks like in black as well though.

That opening above the grill looks pretty cool though, intake duct I would presume?

The grey exterior accents looks a lot better when paired with the white paint, gives it a nice contrast without making the trim look out of place. Seems a bit off when paired with the blue or red paint options, though those models do have nice wheels. Perhaps they come standard?

The Grey one looks like it's a base model considering the lack of fog lights so I'd presume the wheels in question are on the higher trim models as standard?

Alright, so I know what one of the first things I'll be doing is. Either removing it and re-fitting some sort of mesh, or just removing it and fitting a intake screen of some sort just to keep the weathering and bits of debris out of it.

Just make sure what ever you put in their won't restrict air flow into the engine bay since that is very important, its probably why Kia did what they did. Actually before you even make that change, ask some tech's at your local Kia dealer what they think, expert opinion is vital.
