U.S.-spec Hyundai Kona Teased Ahead Of Los Angeles Debut

  U.S.-spec Hyundai Kona Teased Ahead Of Los Angeles Debut American customers will have a choice of a 1.6 turbo and a 2.0 naturally aspirated engines.The automaker is not revealing a lot of details about the U.S.-spec model, but we know from before it will be offered with two four-cylinder gasoline engines, mated to both front- and all-wheel drive configurations. The entry-level variant will be powered by a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated unit with 147 horsepower (110 kilowatts) and 132 pound feet (179 Newton-meters) of torque, paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox. In this version, the Kona will need 10 seconds to reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill and will hit a top speed of 120 mph (193 kph).

The redesigned 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe will have its world debut at the Geneva auto show in March, and Hyundai just released a teaser showing off its new profile and body lines.

When compared to the current model, the teaser image sports thinner headlights and redesigned taillights. A new prominent and continuous body line spans the side from headlight to taillight. The dash-to-axle ratio appears to be longer, lending a sportier look, as does the more swept back roofline.

The current Santa Fe has been around since 2013 and had a refresh in 2017. In a competitive three-row crossover segment, staying stagnant is bad. The Santa Fe delivers good value but never seems to shine. In a recent First Test review of the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited, we said, "The Santa Fe feels older than its stylish sibling (Kia Sorento), particularly when comparing the interior controls. Its flawed ride and slow throttle response show its age even more, negating efforts of the refresh to make it more modern."

  Hyundai teases 2019 Veloster with a whole lotta LEDs I wouldn't expect this to be an option at the dealership.The short teaser video, posted to Hyundai's Korean YouTube page, shows a 2019 Veloster in side profile. Unlike the production model, this one's covered in LEDs, but we can still make out some solid details hidden under all that flashy stuff.

The redesigned 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe will have its world debut at the Geneva auto show in March, and Hyundai just released a According to Hyundai , the fourth-generation 2019 Santa Fe will still offer a suite of driver assist safety features but add Rear Occupant Alert that monitors the back seats.

The current Santa Fe is powered by a 290-hp, 252-lb-ft of torque 3.3-liter V-6 backed by a six-speed automatic and we expect the redesigned Santa Fe to keep the same V-6 but receive a new eight-speed automatic that the refreshed 2019 Kia Sorento and Cadenza received.

According to Hyundai, the fourth-generation 2019 Santa Fe will still offer a suite of driver assist safety features but add Rear Occupant Alert that monitors the back seats to detect passengers and alerts the driver when exiting the car. It will also receive automatic reverse braking. If the driver fails to respond to the rear-cross traffic alert system while reversing, the system will automatically apply the brakes in order to avoid a collision. Reverse automatic braking is a feature not yet offered by that many automakers, but Subaru and Nissan are two other non-premium brands that do offer it.

Hyundai has yet to say when the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe will go on sale but don't be surprised to see it hit dealerships before the end of 2018.

Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe .
How does it compare to the old Santa Fe Sport?Hyundai has few crossovers in its lineup, but all of them are getting a makeover. This year, the automaker began selling the new subcompact Kona and will bring out a face-lifted Tucson in the fall. Meanwhile, Hyundai is completely revamping the Santa Fe. Replacing the midsize, two-row Santa Fe Sport, the new Santa Fe seats up to five passengers while offering them more modern amenities than the old model.
