First-look: Hyundai teases the Kona N – its all-new SUV coming to Africa Markets
(SOUTH AFRICA) – The all-new Kona N, which we could see in South Africa towards the end of the year, 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, emphasised by its wide, low stance.
Hyundai Kona N: Bold and dynamic
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 a powerful presence and driving fun.
The all-new Kona N combines the modern design of the recently launched new Kona with the bold and dynamic language of the company’s N models.
The front view is dominated by large, sporty and 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 eye-catching 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. It will also expand the successful Hyundai SUV family in Europe.
More information will be revealed soon.
