Hyundai Kona Exterior Revealed Before Debut

2346 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  HKSKS

To be debuted sometime this month, the new Kona’s exterior has been revealed by Hyundai in their latest batch of press release images and teaser trailer. The final design may be partially hidden with strategically placed shadows, but we can pretty much see most of the Kona’s features.

Their latest SUV sits below the Tucson and is expected to use a combination of i20 and i30 parts, meaning it could be powered by 1.0 and 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engines along with a 1.6-litre diesel. Hyundai describes the Kona as a 'true SUV', revealing that an all-wheel or four-wheel drive version should offered as an option.

Encasing the selection of diesel and petrol engines is a front facia featuring the company’s signature Cascading Grille, flanked on both sides by a set of twin headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lights and standard LED headlights. A strip of what seems to be plastic in contrasting color wraps around the headlights and extends to the rear via the wheel arches.

Speaking of the rear, AutoCar claims that it shares some lines with the Tucson. We can definitely see a bit of the Kona’s sibling in the slim brake lights located on the tailgate. But the Kona’s rear receives an update with a split tail-lamp setup.

We should get a clear picture of the Kona’s interior once it debuts this month.

I'm still not sure how I feel about the contrasting colored trim going from the front lights to the rear. Maybe it looks chunkier in the promo images and teaser trailer than it does in real life. Think they'll offer the Kona without that trim?
What do you mean contrasting colored trim from the front lights to the rear? I'm not seeing which trim you're talking about unfortunately.

In regards to lights though, I think it looks pretty cool but it looks like a page out of the Jeep Cherokee
I hope they change those wheels on the production model otherwise I might have them changed before taking delivery. Worst case scenario i'll sell the stock setup for something aftermarket or from another Hyundai model. Some Genesis 2.0T wheels could do it some justice. :D
