Just recently, Hyundai confirmed the expansion of its exciting N range of vehicles with the Kona. That said, like the rest of the N family, the subcompact crossover shall then feature a performance package that should make it worthy of being dubbed as a ‘hot SUV’.
Hofmann even emphasized that the addition of Kona N shall further bring its high-performance brand to the next level. Going over its mechanicals, the upcoming model shall be run by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that’s paired with an 8-speed Wet Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). While its figures were not disclosed just yet, Hyundai still promises that this motor is capable enough of rendering that powerful and nimble experience.
As mentioned earlier, like the rest of the N breed vehicles, the upcoming Kona N shall also come with a suite of high-performance driving features such as Launch Control and an emotional sound experience.
We may expect the actual model to carry a number of familiar cues from the standard Kona, from exterior to interior, though some distinctive appointments will surely invade the vehicle in order to properly distinguish it from the rest of the Kona lineup.
