Hyundai’s hot crossover, powered by the i30 N’s potent 2.0-litre inline-four, has regarded in some very revealing teaser images
We’re no longer definite these in fact qualify as teaser images. The location of pics are from Hyundai, depicting its incoming Kona N, and with reasonably boost in brightness, they exhibit the hot crossover from most angles.
The four images conceal that the long chase Ford Puma ST rival appears to be like very equivalent to the no longer too long ago printed Kona N Line, albeit with a pair of subtle nonetheless effective changes.
On the front, there’s a splash of red on the splitter, with a equivalent treatment in store for the aspect skirts. On the rear, the red capabilities too, arching over the unique double diffuser. Either aspect of that you just’ll rep sizeable spend tailpipes, while up high, there’s a definite boot spoiler the N Line doesn’t acquire.
