Hyundai publishes new photos of its future Kona N. The muscular little SUV reveals itself quite widely and reveals a real sporting character.
The teasing campaign continues for the future Kona N. After two first series of pictures which did not show much of the model, Hyundai is releasing today new images of his neighbor small sporty SUV, which this time reveals itself quite widely.
The Kona N appears out of the shadows and is no longer a mystery of its design.
The Kona is metamorphosed
We discover indeed a Kona largely transformed and energized thanks to the appearance of a new front bumper with enlarged air intakes and a darkened grille with mesh patterns and on which the “N” logo stands for sportiness. There are also slits at the end of the hood like Audi Sport, a new light signature and a red border that runs in the lower part all around the vehicle.
A real sporty look
At the rear, Hyundai adds an imposing roof spoiler, a large diffuser, two large kinds of round exhaust and a third triangular brake light. The sporting side is here exacerbated and assumed.
And under the hood?
The interior should be in the same tone while under the hood the vehicle will be fitted with a 2L turbo four-cylinder engine which could develop 275 hp, as on the i30 N. This unit will be associated with an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox (N DCT8). And like other N models, the Kona, first SUV to join the N family, will also benefit from a launch control.
No presentation date has yet been announced for the Kona N but it should be unveiled in the coming weeks for marketing expected by the end of the year. It remains to be seen whether it will be offered in France …
