As Hyundai dealers, our team at Sport Hyundai in Egg Harbor Township, NJ is enthusiastic about the various new models and technologies our brand releases each year. That being said, we have some exciting news to share that was just released regarding an upcoming Hyundai vehicle: the Hyundai Kona. Read on for more details about this new subcompact crossover.
The Hyundai Kona has been a long time in the works, but rumor has it this vehicle will finally make its way to Hyundai dealers in the United States in early 2018. As the Hyundai brand’s first B-segment SUV, this vehicle will be unique, but have a true place along with the other Hyundai SUVs. Like many other Hyundai vehicles, the Hyundai Kona is named after a North American travel destination.
While the other Hyundai models like the Santa Fe, Veracruz, and Tucson were named for their respective cities for a variety of other reasons, the Kona is all about two things: energy and adventure. Kona, Hawaii is known for extreme sports and thrill-seeking activities like scuba diving, water skiing, surfing, and more and Hyundai dealers can’t wait to show off this vehicle that reflects that. The island and its reputation for high energy and movement goes along perfectly with the Hyundai image for the Hyundai Kona – innovation, high functionality, and a focus on living life to the fullest.
Hyundai spokespersons have noted that many of subcompact crossovers may look and feel more like hatchbacks, but the Hyundai Kona will not. The Hyundai Kona is expected to compete with the likes of the Honda HR-V, Nissan Juke, Chevrolet Trax, Mazda CX-3, and Toyota C-HR.
