Hyundai Kona

The Hyundai Kona is a subcompact 5-door crossover SUV designed by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai, which was shown for the first time in June 2017. The production version will make its debut later this year. A battery-electric version with a 200- to 250-mile range is expected to be released in Korea in 2018, with a U.S. market debut likely in 2019.
The car will be sold in Portugal as the Hyundai Kauai, as Kona is too similar to “cona”, the slang word for the female genitalia in Portuguese. Like Kona, Kauai is a western island of Hawaii. In the People’s Republic of China, the car will be released as the Hyundai Encino.
From launch, the Kona will be available with a 1.0 litre, turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine producing 120hp or a 1.6 litre turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine producing 177hp with 4×4 all-wheel drive available on selected models.
