Is the Kona replacing the Tucson or is it a smaller version of the Tucson?

It's going to be smaller than the tucson. Going after the HR-V, Soul, C-HR, CX-3 I'm assuming.

It's built on the Accent chassis so it will be smaller than anything they have so far.

That's that same stuff that people vape into their mouths. Polyproplene glycol.

So we have a bad head gasket with coolant leaking into the combustion chamber?

Hopefully it has more interior room than some of the options in this class. CH-R and Juke are kind of a joke when it comes to space. Heck, a Veloster has just as much room. In most regards, a Mazda 3 is superior to the CX-3 and a Honda Fit is superior to the HR-V. you are basically just buying style. Hopefully, Hyundai works it where Kona has some nice strengths over the Accent, much like the Soul has some strengths over the Rio5.

Make it a 200 mile EV and I'm on board.

Honestly though, the Kia Stonic (their version of this) is supposed to have an EV version with longer range than anything currently offered by H/K so this isn't as out there as one might think.
