New Hyundai Kona Spy Photos Reveal Internal, External Details

With a refresh under its belt, it’s no surprise that Hyundai Corner will have a more thorough update in the near future. And based on these spy photos, there will be some significant changes, both inside and out.

There are enough gaps in the heavy camouflage of this prototype that we can learn a few key things about the design of the new corner. The front fender shows that chunky plastic bits will stick around, but they and the surrounding metal parts will be given more straight edges and sharper angles. In fact, there is a hard crease that cuts off the tops of the plastic parts and seems to move from the running light to the rear of the car during the day.

Beyond that, it’s hard to say much more. The greenhouse looks very similar to the current model, although the mirrors and window angles where they are mounted look different. This corner prototype still features the current model’s split headlights and taillights.

We can see a little more internally. The instrument panel screen and infotainment screen are part of a monochromatic pod, as is the case with many other Hyundai and Kia products, not to mention the competitors. At the bottom of the screen appears a full-width-style air vent bank followed by a set of shortcut buttons (including a volume knob) and climate control further down. The steering wheel has a new design we haven’t seen in any other Hyundai model yet, and its spokes have a square center section with similar boxy controls.

Since the corner has recently been refreshed, this more significantly updated corner could be at least a year away, perhaps two or more years away. Heavy disguise would also support that theory. When it arrives, we hope it will continue to be offered with wide trim and powertrain from entry-level gas engine to full electric drive.
