The compact Kona SUV gets the N performance treatment, with more power and improved performance for the street or track.
The hot SUV features more aggressive body and aerodynamic bits and a new Sonic Blue exterior color.
Under the hood you'll find a 276-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
Sadly, Hyundai's release makes no mention of all-wheel drive or a manual gearbox option.
Front-wheel drive and an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission are standard equipment.
Using launch control, the Kona N can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.5 seconds.
Handling is also improved with a standard limited-slip differential, a stiffer chassis and a grippier wheel and tire package.
Details about pricing and availability haven't been announced, but we know that Hyundai will be expanding the N and N Line lineups to 18 global models by 2022.
Eventually, the N designation will include battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell cars.
The interior and the Kona N's user interface are inspired by racing games.
