The global-spec compact SUV will look a lot sportier than before
The new Kona’s front-end design has been teased ahead of its unveiling.
It gets shark-like styling with fin-shaped vents and elements, and the LED headlamps look like a shark’s gills.
The new Kona’s N-Line variant will get a sportier front bumper with a wider grille.
The new Kona Electric is expected to get the same styling updates soon after.
India only gets the Kona Electric, which will likely get the new styling by 2021.
The Hyundai Kona compact SUV is part of the brand’s global model lineup, positioned above the Venue and offered in select parts of the world like Europe and North America. It is only offered in India in its EV avatar called the Kona Electric. Hyundai has now teased the facelifted version of the Kona along with its new sportier N-Line variant. The current model is the first-gen Kona and was revealed in 2017.
The new Kona’s front end design is inspired by sharks with sharp design lines. It has a split-headlamp design with bumper-mounted LED headlamps that look like a shark’s gills. The LED daytime running lights are still a sleek design along the bonnet line but look more sculpted than before. The bumper design now has fin-like elements, similar to the DRLs on the Grand i10 Nios. Overall, the teaser suggests a sportier and wider stance for the new Kona.
Hyundai has also teased the new N-Line variant of the Kona which has a sportier front end. It features a wider grille and low-set air intake with fin-like design elements on each end. The facelifted Kona Electric is expected to get similar styling updates as the standard SUV but with a different grille that would be better-suited for an EV.
Its new design language differs from the other compact SUVs in Hyundai’s lineup. The Kona Electric, which is available in India, is expected to get the updated looks as well. The new Kona is expected to be unveiled in its entirety over the coming weeks.
