Launching in Q3 of this year, Hyundai recently revealed the Kona N without its camouflage disguise. The all-new Kona N will be the latest addition to the Hyundai N brand line-up, and the first N model with an SUV body type.
As the first images reveal, the ‘hot SUV’ boasts a sporty appearance, further emphasised by its wide, low stance. For the very first time, the Hyundai N division and Hyundai Design Centre worked together to develop on an SUV body type, creating a product that clearly represents what Hyundai says is a powerful presence and driving fun.
The front view is dominated by large, iconic air intakes, and the new light signature gives Hyundai’s latest high-performance model an aggressive, powerful appearance. The lower grille defines the character of the bumper fascia: its shape is inspired by an aeronautic fuselage and extends to the side of the car, emphasising its aerodynamic efficiency and speed. An N logo on the unique upper grille completes the look.
At the rear, a large double-wing roof spoiler for enhanced downforce gives spice to the rear view. It also incorporates a third, triangular brake light, as is customary with N models. Large N dual exhaust mufflers fully express the model’s high-performance spirit. Lower down on the rear bumper, a large diffuser enhances the airflow departure. The sporty appearance is further emphasised through body-coloured fenders, bringing Kona N visually closer to the ground.
The all-new Kona N is equipped with the features reserved for N models, such as exclusive alloy wheels and red accents that embellish the side sills.
The all-new Kona N will be the latest addition to the Hyundai N family, Hyundai’s high-performance, motorsport-inspired line-up.
More details are still to come.
