The B-Segment Crossover Heats Up With The Hyundai Kona

In the news this week, there have been calls for an extension on the SST holiday period on the automotive industry, DBKL abruptly announces that all parking fees in Kuala Lumpur can only be paid via mobile apps, and Mercedes-Benz shows off their EV plans for 2021.


It's another new car review this week as we zoom in on the B-Segment Crossover... segment. The new Kona is one of Hyundai's hottest selling cars globally, but why is that, and how does it stack up against the hype of the brand new (and much more affordable) Proton X50?
