Hyundai teases with yet another addition to its crossover line featuring an exotic location dearly loved by locals and tourists alike. Enter Hyundai Kona which is expected to be launched later this year. Will the Kona be as lovely as that district in Hawaii's Big Island?

 The answer may be leaning on Yes! However, Hyundai only released a picture of its headlights so not much can be said about how the crossover looks like as a whole. With what was available, the super thin profile follow's Hyundai's tradition of gradually slimming its front headlights. The upcoming Hyundai Kona makes it even more interesting as it takes it to another level.

From the tiny teaser released by Hyundai, the headlights are something that has never been shown on any of its recent vehicles. The Korean car manufacturer describes it as progressive with the design reflecting the lifestyle of modern customers. This is a promising pronouncement from Hyundai as "modern" may come in different forms. It is interesting to see how the Kona can bring modernity in all of its forms and levels.

Hyundai is also expected to be more generous with updates as it will release more information about the Kona in the near future. Vague as "near future" can be anytime from today until eternity, but better to just take their word for it. It may really be in the near future so better stay tuned.

Reports also suggest that the Hyundai Kona will be based on Hyundai i30 making it slightly bigger than the Mazda CX-3 which has gained impressive popularity. Hyundai also proudly said that the Kona has been recently developed with focus on enhancing driving dynamics and is set to redefine performance standards for the compact SUV segment.

Hyundai Kona is one promising crossover SUV to watch out for. More official information will definitely be made available for everyone's reference as it nears its launch towards the end of the year. Any official news from Hyundai regarding the Kona will immediately be reported.
