The more hardcore updates will be saved for the Kona N, which will borrow the 275-hp 2.-liter turbo-four from the Veloster N, with any luck , with the same shouty exhaust tuning. Just like the up to date Veloster N, this motor will send its grunt by an eight-speed DCT.
But unlike the Veloster, the Kona N will route its energy to all four wheels rather than just the entrance two. Even if the Kona N is heavier than the Veloster N, it might really keep the benefit off-the-line many thanks to the AWD process. With nearly no general performance models in the subcompact crossover place, the Kona N must have the current market to itself.
