Hyundai Motor Company has given us somewhat limited information on its all-new KONA N, the first SUV in the South Korean marque’s high-performance lineup.

Hyundai KONA N will be available with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine driving through an eight-speed wet dual-clutch transmission.

It will have a variety of high-performance driving features, such as launch control and what Hyundai describes as, “an exciting sound experience”.

“As N brand’s first ‘hot SUV’, KONA N will offer plenty of versatility and driving thrills that N-thusiasts have come to expect from the brand. You can take this vehicle anywhere – from road to the track,” said Till Wartenberg, Vice President and Head of N Brand Management and Motorsport Subdivision at Hyundai Motor Company.

More Hyundai KONA N details for Australia will be announced in the coming weeks and we will bring them to you shortly afterwards.
