Hyundai recently expanded its crossover lineup with the introduction of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade, but now it’s looking to expand the opposite end of its lineup. Hyundai has confirmed that it will unveil a new small crossover at the upcoming 2019 New York Auto Show, which will slot in below the Kona in its lineup.
The new A-segment Hyundai crossover was confirmed by SangYup Lee, head of the Hyundai Global Design Center in a recent interview with Motor Trend.
“It’s smaller and it’s distinctively different than Kona,” Lee revealed.”So imagine Kona as a really fast profile, distinctive, iconic character to it, but this one is almost very boxy, bold, bull-doggy character.” The smaller crossover won’t share its platform with the Kona. It’s being reported that the new entry-level crossover will be called the Hyundai Styx.
The new smaller crossover isn’t the only big debut that Hyundai has planned for New York, since Lee also revealed that the next-generation 2020 Hyundai Sonata will also debut at the New York Auto Show.
