New Hyundai Kona Crossover

The crossover segment continues to see an upward sales trend with more and more sales year after year. Hyundai is looking to expand its market share, which means there’s a new vehicle on the horizon. The Hyundai Kona crossover boasts an eye-catching design that’s sure to attract drivers of all ages.

The all-new Hyundai Kona will feature the brand’s new Cascading Grille identity. New twin headlights create a more aggressive design while LED Daytime Running Lights and headlights create a sense of intimidation. The design will set the standard for the crossover segment as a whole.

The Kona will offer a higher drive height, a common reason drivers love crossovers, as well as agile handling and a smooth, comfortable ride. The name itself sticks with Hyundai’s traditional trend.


Kona, a Hawaiian city, is a notable travel destination for visitors. It fits well with other crossover and SUV names, like the Sante Fe and Tucson. The Hyundai Kona will reflect the lifestyle of the city and bring new life to an extremely competitive segment.

The new Hyundai Kona crossover is scheduled to be unveiled sometime this month.

Mitsubishi’s North American Comeback

It’s no secret that Mitsubishi hasn’t been doing too well over the years, but that’s all about to change. The brand was bought by Renault-Nissan not long ago, and it could be the answer to Mitsubishi’s financial woes. The brand’s new Chief Operating Officer is looking to kick off Mitsubishi’s North American comeback tour.

Trevor Mann was formerly Nissan’s Chief Performance Officer. Once Mitsubishi was officially bought by Nissan, he moved to the Chief Operating Officer position. In just three months, he cut purchasing costs and intertwined with Nissan to relieve some of the brand’s expenses. Notably, Mann also helped Carlos Ghosn revive Nissan.

While specific details are forthcoming, Mann wants to add more dealerships to the network, which is currently 362 strong. He also seems to want to move some manufacturing operations to the United States.

Mitsubishi’s North American ComebackMann is also talking about adding more crossovers to the brand’s lineup. Considering the crossover segment has seen dramatic year-over-year increases in sales, that isn’t too surprising. A new Mitsubishi pickup truck could also be in the works.

There are plenty of challenges ahead in Mitsubishi’s North American comeback, but there are few better people for the job than Trevor Mann.
