Hyundai’s new crossover is due in October and is likely to rival the Nissan Juke and the Toyota CH-R. The Kona has a short rear overhang and a low roofline to give it a distinctive silhouette, plus contrasting accents on the exterior and stand-fit roof bars add a bit of all-important SUV flavour.
Jeep’s new compact SUV is due by the end of the year and will replace both the current Compass and Patriot. Looking to rival the Volkswagen Tiguan, Nissan Qashqai and Hyundai Tucson. One big difference you’ll notice on the new Compass is that the legendary seven-slot grille, the most iconic Jeep symbol, has been restyled to give it a fresh and innovative personality.

Appearing to be like a shrunken XC90, the new Volvo XC60 is powered by three engines: the D4 2.0-litre diesel (190bhp), D5 (232hp) 2.0-litre diesel and the plug-in petrol hybrid T8 (407hp). You can check out the new XC60 for yourself at the Volvo pop up shop in Dundrum Town Centre.
