Facelifted Hyundai Kona teased with sporty N Line model on the way
Hyundai has given us a sneaky preview of a refreshed Kona SUV that is set to arrive in 2021.
From the pictures, we can see a much sharper front end, with the Korean company hinting we can expect the crossover to get a wider, more aggressive look when it arrives next year.
A more angular set of daytime running lights are obvious, while a sportier grille and bumper incorporates a much larger air intake than the current car – hinting that a Kona N Line will be part of the line-up.
Well, it’s more than a hint really – the picture of the red Kona clearly shows an N Line badge along with a reworked honeycomb grille. However, we’re still a long way from hearing any tech specifications.
We predict combustion-engined models to receive 48V mild-hybrid technology, while the plug-in hybrid and electric models will receive a refresh of their own later in 2021.
As for whether there will be a range-topping performance Kona N, we’ll have to wait and see. We’ll bring you more details when we know more, but for now why not check out our review of the Kona Electric?
