The soon-to-be-unveiled Hyundai Kona has been teased a couple of times already, but spyshots acquired by autoweek.nl have blown the cover wide open. The B-segment crossover was spotted completely undisguised at the set of a commercial shoot, giving us a very clear idea as to what it will look like.

From the looks of it, the design of the car is certainly funky enough to stand out, even next to the extroverted looks of rivals like the Toyota C-HR and Nissan Juke. The front end borrows plenty from the Citroën C4 Cactus, with slit-like LED daytime running lights sitting separately above the low-mounted main headlights. These flank the new corporate Cascading Grille that made its debut on the new i30.

The sides are characterised by strong haunches and chunky protective wheel arch trims that extend to wrap around the headlights and the rear indicator and reverse light module which, like the headlights, are mounted low down the rear bumper below the slim tail lights. A cut in the D-pillar provides a floating roof look, further emphasised by the contrasting roof colour on this particular car.

An earlier spyshot showed a good deal of the interior of the car as well, which has a very simple horizontal design with a three-spoke steering wheel, twin analogue dials, pill-shaped centre air vents and a large touchscreen infotainment system sitting atop the centre console.

The Kona should be based on the same platform as the Creta – which in turn is based on the i20 – and should come with the same engines as the larger i30. These include a 1.4 litre T-GDI turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.6 litre CRDi turbodiesel, mated to either a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
