Hyundai will unveil a new subcompact SUV called the Kona this summer as the automaker moves to compete in the growing "B-segment" of smaller compact SUVs, Hyundai has announced.

The Hyundai Kona, which has not been given a model-year designation, has been named after the district in Hawaii. It follows the company's SUV naming convention of using travel destinations for vehicle names.

It will arrive with a cascading grille, LED daytime running lights, and LED headlights. More details will be released this summer.

The Hyundai Kona would likely compete with the 2018 Toyota C-HR, 2018 Ford EcoSport, Buick Encore, Chevrolet Trax, Nissan Rogue Sport, Mazda CX-3, and Jeep Renegade.

DUI or Driving Under the Influence (sometimes called DWI or Driving While Intoxicated) is a criminal offense in most states (most countries, actually). The substance can be alcohol or drugs, which is why it's not merely called "drunk driving" anymore.
