Hyundai has revealed the first details about the future member of the N. KONA N range is the first SUV class model in the manufacturer’s performance division.
“We are excited to use the successful recipe for the i30 N and i20 N models for one of the most popular SUVs on the market right now: KONA,” said Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President of Marketing & Product – Hyundai Motor Europe.
The Hyundai Kona N will have a 2.0-liter turbo engine
The KONA N will be equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo engine, coupled to an 8-speed wet dual-clutch transmission (N DCT), for a dynamic driving experience. Like all other models in the N range, the KONA N will have dedicated performance adjustment functions, such as the “Launch Control” system.
“It’s the first SUV-class model of the N brand,” said Till Wartenberg, Vice President and Head of the N Brand Management and Motorsport Sub-division – Hyundai Motor Company. “The vehicle will provide a pleasant driving experience on both public roads and the circuit.”
The N range also recently received the Hyundai i20
In October 2021, Hyundai introduced the i20 N model. It offers customers a sporty driving experience. The i20 N is inspired by the i20 WRC, a circuit car based on the standard i20 version.
The i20 N is equipped with a 1.6-liter GDi engine with turbocharger, paired with a six-speed manual transmission (6 MT). The engine develops 204 hp and a maximum torque of 275 Nm. Weighing only 1,190 kg, like the i20 WRC, the power-to-weight ratio is one of the best in this class. The i20 N reaches a top speed of 230 km / h and reaches 0 to 100 km / h in just 6.7 seconds.
