Hyundai Offers Sneak Peek at New KONA Subcompact Crossover

Start up the hype machine; Hyundai has a new vehicle on the way.

Early this June Hyundai tweeted out a teaser image of its upcoming subcompact crossover, the Kona. Though it doesn't give much away, what the image does show could give a hint to Hyundai's design language going forward.

Competitors in the subcompact crossover class include Chevy Trax, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, and Nissan Juke.

Hyundai's press release says the name Kona comes from a district on Hawaii's Big Island.

"The island’s energetic image and unique lifestyle match the All-New Hyundai Kona’s dynamic character," Hyundai said. "Its true SUV genes, progressive design and premium features enhance the brand’s appeal to attract new customers."

While not much is known for certain about the Kona, Hyundai said it will release more information soon.
