2021 Hyundai Kona N spotted at the NurburgringOctober 24, 2020
A video has been published on the Web in which a “charged” Korean cross-hatch “has fun” on the famous race track. The Kona N will debut by the end of the year or early next as a 2022 model.
The Hyundai Kona is truly a small crossover. Prototypes of the updated crossovers have already been spotted several times in tests, and now we have the opportunity to watch disguised copies of the Kona N racing at the Nurburgring. It is worth noting that the Hyundai pilots team is very friendly: after the driver “winks” with his headlights at the beginning of the video, a little later we can hear the welcome signal of the horn.
In addition to the kind gestures, there are many shots in which the “charged” Kona overcomes various corners of the “Green Hell”, while its tires “squeal” loudly. Those moments definitely require a driver’s focus, especially since the Kona N doesn’t look as assembled as other N-branded cars like the Elantra N we’ve seen on the track recently.
In terms of power, the Kona N is expected to have the same turbocharged 2.0-liter engine as the “charged” Veloster, only in the Kona it should be powered by all-wheel drive. It’ll be 250 or perhaps 275 horsepower, and while the Kona is a little more skittish in its movements, it can be a really great rally option.
