2022 Hyundai Kona N not fully unveiled, but showing big wings and exhaust

We saw the refreshed Kona revealed in just about every shape from standard to electrical. The only one left to be seen is the 2022 Hyundai Kona N. Although a date has not yet been set, the Korean automaker gave us a surprisingly insightful look with these teaser photos.

Most of the N is very similar to the less strong N line. It has the same front fascia, grille, LED headlights, and most of the rear fascia. But the N adds a little more aggression with red accent lines around the front lip spoiler, side skirts and rear diffuser panel. It also gets a bigger wing, two fat exhaust tips and the signature triangular LED high-performance brake light.

Hyundai is keeping track of the details, but at least we know there will be a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, presumably the same one used in the Veloster N. In this car, it makes 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. We still have to know if it will only come with front-wheel drive or if an all-wheel drive option will be offered. It should come with either a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed dual clutch automatic. Chassis improvements and likely Hyundai’s electronically controlled mechanical limited-slip differential will be included.

Although no official date has been announced yet, we are sure to see the Kona N in the next few months. It should go on sale soon after.
