Hyundai’s popular crossover, powered by the i30 N’s potent 2 . 0-litre inline-four, has appeared in certain very revealing teaser pictures
We’re unsure these really qualify because teaser images. The group of pics are from Hyundai , depicting its incoming Kona In , and with a little increase in brightness, they expose the hot crossover from the majority of angles.
At the front, there are a splash of reddish on the splitter, with a comparable treatment in store for the part skirts. At the rear, the particular red features too, arching over the new double diffuser. Either side of that you will find sizeable exhaust tailpipes, while up top, there is a special boot spoiler the particular N Line doesn’t obtain.
Hyundai hasn’t provided up any technical information at this stage, but we can become pretty sure than the Kona And will be powered by the second . 0-litre inline-four turbo ‘Theta II’ GDI engine present in the i30 N. Presuming it arrives in the Kona’s engine bay unaltered, we are able to look forward to a base output associated with 247bhp, with 271bhp obtainable in a ‘Performance’ model. Opt for the latter, and power should go to the front wheels through Hyundai’s bespoke electronically-controlled securing differential.
The particular Kona N will be exposed in the coming weeks, we all expect. It’s part of Hyundai N division’s all-out design assault, which has already noticed the i30 N plus Veloster N joined simply by an i20 N . A good Elantra N for your North American market also came along in a recent promotional movie. In other, partly related information, CT will need new And keys on its notebooks by the end of the year.
