Hyundai Motor has announced the name of its new sub-compact SUV will be the Kona.
The all-new B-SUV will be the fourth member of the brand’s SUV family in Europe consisting of Grand Santa Fe, Santa Fe and Tucson.
“The all-new Hyundai Kona is an important milestone of Hyundai Motor’s journey to become the leading Asian automotive brand in Europe by 2021 launching 30 new models and derivatives,” a spokesman said.
“Building on Hyundai Motor’s SUV credibility with more than 1.4 million sales since the introduction of the first generation Santa Fe in 2001, the All-New Hyundai Kona is a true SUV.
The name Kona continues Hyundai Motor’s SUV naming strategy and is derived from the Kona district on Hawaii.
