Hyundai is gearing up to unveil their latest SUV at the upcoming New York Motor Show in June and the Korean automaker has released a teaser of the Kona SUV. The upcoming SUV will be slotted between the Creta and Tucson.
The Hyundai Kona is based on the platform of the i20. The automaker is going to target international markets with this SUV and it is going to be a production version of the Intrado coupe SUV concept that we have seen earlier.
