Hyundai's all-new B-segment crossover to be revealed next month

After releasing several teaser images of their all-new crossover, Hyundai has just announced that the Kona will make its world premiere on June 13. Set to take on other B-segment crossover stalwarts, the Kona features a funky design that is unlike the company has ever come up with.

Based on the teaser video, the Kona will have a double headlight design that gives it a distinct face. From the looks of things, the top portion of the front fascia will have LED daytime running while the bottom section will be fitted with what appear to be LED or HID headlights. While not yet fully revealed, the Kona will likely have an updated Cascading Grill reminiscent of the one used in the all-new i30.

Black body cladding, directional alloy wheels and flared wheel arches are also likely to be present on the Hyundai Kona. Topping it all off are what appear to be thin eye-catching LED taillights.

Recently, our spies were able to take photos of the upcoming Kona in heavy camouflage. Based on images provided, the prototype looks a lot like the production vehicle teased in the video. In addition, our spies suspect that its platform may be derived from the next-gen i20 hatchback while engines could be borrowed from the all-new i30.
