The Hyundai Kona prototype has already been spotted in real-world testing, but now the Korean automaker has released the second official teaser. The latest darkened photo offers a more in-depth look at some of the styling cues. While there’s no word on the powertrain just yet, the new model surely won’t disappoint.
The latest teaser image plays up the Kona’s twin LED daytime running lights above-LED headlights. The upcoming subcompact crossover sticks the styling language found in the 2018 Hyundai Sonata and Elantra GT. The cascading grille design is certainly similar.
The camouflaged prototype spotted earlier made it clear the subcompact crossover would be small. Judging by size, the new Hyundai Kona will likely compete with the likes of the Chevrolet Trax, Mazda CX-3, and Nissan Juke.
The interior is similar to that of the Elantra GT. A free-standing touchscreen sits in the middle of the dashboard and controls are positioned well throughout the cockpit, just as one would expect from Hyundai.
The new Kona subcompact crossover will make its way to the United States in early 2018. First, it will launch in Korea this summer. The subcompact crossover will also be one of the 30 new or refreshed models Hyundai launches in Europe between now and 2021.
