The 2018 Hyundai Kona SUV, outgoing in the second half of 2018, has a size from the crossover to segment B. We see all the first spy photos of the car, topped off by all the news on the new Korean product. What price will you leave?
The presentation of 2018 Hyundai Kona SUV is approaching. The urban SUV has already been seen in its definitive forms: After the advances of the mysterious teaser, was then immortalized without veils in some spy photos and, finally, now arrive two new official images that allow us to closely observe the style of an interesting product, although not original in the design choices operated on the front.
We already knew of the split of the optical groups and the cutting of the upper headlights approaches several Kona to Jeep Cherokee. Convincing the cascading grille, with license plate placed at the bottom and the Hyundai logo (still masked) higher.
It is a product that wants to emphasize in a marked way a certain florist artistic vocation, although all to be verified through the data sheet, which will be revealed in the coming weeks.
The evident plastic protections on the wheel extend to the main headlights, in an elaborate game of contrasts between bodywork and inserts. The fog lamps are thus moved centrally.
2018 Hyundai Kona SUV Design
Let’s see in detail the spy pics of the 2018 Hyundai Kona SUV. If the front is a set of lights and shadows, much more convincing is the design of the side, with the beautiful contrasting roof and the suspended uprights, with the exception of the rear one, which resorts to the body tint to give a strong inclination forward, at least visually. The rear lamps are thinned and tall, the same plastic frame around the back fog and the reversing lights, as well as the obvious skid-like protection on the bumper.
It has the right cards to propose something different from the competitors that populate the B segment of the crossovers, starting from dimensions that we expect slightly higher than the direct rivals.
There are also teasers of the 2018 Hyundai Kona SUV, as we have already mentioned. A new SUV for the brand, next to the compact and medium size proposals, next to Hyundai Tucson and Hyundai Santa Fe. So it announces a product with urban dimensions. When will it come out on the market? In the second half of 2018, most likely will be presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show after the summer. Hyundai Kona will enrich the offer with a crossover that we can expect with a length around 4 meters and 20 cm. The style will say something different than in Tucson and Santa Fe.
The first teaser revealed the front headlight, sharp and with LED lights. In fact, the headlamps are split, the main lamp is placed lower, next to a calendar from the modified lines. We do not glimpse the thick chrome frame that is a stylistic theme on the other Hyundai SUV, as well as the most marked edges, replaced by soft lines. Instead, the second teaser revealed a good part of the front, where the grille appears in the foreground with the note cascading grille, according to the latest stylistic settings of the brand.
2018 Hyundai Kona SUV Specs
Interesting is the engine bonnet sculpted by the ribs, longitudinally and fillet with the front jambs, while above the wider grid you notice a thinner aperture. Other clues emerged in the last few weeks go in the direction of a rear with horizontal development headlights and overall proportions already appreciated on Kia Niro. It remains the curiosity to find out which engines will propose 2018 Hyundai Kona SUV under the hood, whether we have the hybrid alternative or be exclusively a range of gasoline and diesel units. Who, however, wondered why the name, Kona is a District of Big Island, in Hawaii and the intentions of the brand are the revival on the road of the vital energy of the district of the island in the Pacific.
Inside, it promises Hyundai, there will be optional of a head-up display with luminance at the top of the category, able to guarantee a clear view of all the main information even during the day, without distracting the eyes from the road.
