Red Dot Design accolades for Hyundai KONA and NEXO

Hyundai has won two of this year’s Red Dot Design Awards, one of the most renowned international design and innovation prizes. Hyundai’s Fuel Cell vehicle NEXO and the subcompact SUV Kona were awarded in the Cars and Motorcycles category. The Kona gained recognition for outstanding design and innovation in ‘SUV/Off-road vehicles’ and the Hyundai NEXO showed its excellence in its subcategory.

The NEXO is Hyundai’s 2nd-generation fuel cell EV. It is characterized by a pure and calm design emphasizing its streamlined silhouette and by a floating roof. The New Hyundai NEXO shapes the future of driving and is a flagship model. The first dedicated hydrogen-powered SUV combines an SUV with the clean advanced fuel cell, smart driver assistance systems and most able powertrains in the segment.

The Kona broadens Hyundai’s successful SUV line-up. With its sleek, sharp and colorful design it creates a unique proposition in the sub-compact SUV segment. Bold exterior lines, a pleasantly spacious interior and a powerful engine line-up make the innovative subcompact SUV suitable for modern, urban customers.

Design is increasingly the number one reason why customers choose the Hyundai brand. Receiving this prestigious recognition in the fifth consecutive year reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to producing cars that demonstrate a unique and evolving design language. The 2018 award follows the recognition in 2017 for the Hyundai Azera and an ‘Honorable Mention’ for the i30, the prize-winning IONIQ line-up in 2016 as well as double recognition in 2015 for i20 and Sonata and for i10 and Genesis in 2014.

The 2018 contest attracted entries from 59 countries, making the Red Dot Award the largest product competition in the world.
