Kona will sit under the Tucson and Santa Fe in Hyundai’s line-up.

Named after a district in Hawaii, the new model – only shown in a teaser image of the headlight – will sit under the Tucson and Santa Fe in the carmaker’s line-up and will provide a rival to models such as the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur.

The Kona is likely to share a platform with the i20 supermini, with the 90bhp diesel and 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engines for fleets and potentially a choice of two and four-wheel drive.
