Hyundai plans to show the “charged” modification of its compact crossover in 2020, and the debut test mules have already been noticed during test races on the cult Nurburgring track.

The Korean brand will revive its own N Performance division next year, and the new version of the Kona crossover will also join the future i20 N.

  Despite the significant similarities with the standard Kona, the novelty has some characteristic features that hint that this is not a simple model. For example, the concept has alloy wheels in the style of N, which hide large brakes with red calipers, an air intake under the front grille and an elementary exhaust system. The car also has a lowered suspension.

 While there is no information on technical specifications, it is assumed that Kona will receive power that is similar to i20 N. So, the “charged” version can be equipped with a 1.6-liter gas turbo engine with a capacity of more than 200 hp, which will work in mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

The individual chassis configuration will complement increased productivity through stiffer suspension and installed service brakes. The interior will also be made in the style of N-models, that is, sports seats, special trim details and customizable riding modes will appear in the cabin.

In addition, Hyundai previously announced the start of sales of a special variation of the brand’s most affordable hatchback – Hyundai Santro.
