It was an open up secret, but it’s now verified: Hyundai has announced the formal arrival of the N variant of its Kona SUV. And when we talk about the letter N at Hyundai, we are referring to pure performance.

Hyundai’s initially N-badged SUV will feature a additional intense edition of the regular Kona’s layout, which attributes a additional downward extending bumper, honeycomb grille, side skirts, much larger good roof spoiler and a redesigned rear bumper with an built-in air diffuser. Two round exhaust strategies will enable announce the variant’s intentions to other street end users.

Sad to say, the camouflage on the design in the photographs introduced today prevents us from looking at the all round visual appearance of the merchandise, but it does appear promising.

The producer has also verified that its design will be equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, as nicely as an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A launch command technique and a special audio technique are also in the cards.

In terms of engine electric power, we can count on some thing in the 275-hp selection, related to what is available in the Veloster N, which is also equipped with a 2.-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Additional electric power is also feasible considering that we are working with a heavier design below.

Additional facts will be communicated to us shortly, Hyundai promies, and we will then likely know the specific time of the model’s arrival on the sector (we anticipate a 2022 design), as nicely as additional facts regarding specs and the selection supply. As for the rates, we suspect that they will be shared just prior to the model’s debut on the sector.
