Hyundai created something of a hit with its Veloster N, the 275-horsepower rocket with a snarly exhaust and seats that hug you tighter than a naughty co-ed.

Hyundai has revealed new technical information on its Kona N, a fast variant of its compact SUV that will rival the Ford Puma ST and VW T-Roc R. When it goes on sale in early summer this year it'll join the refreshed i30 N and new i20 N in Hyundai's performance line-up, expanding the N range into a new sector and bumping up awareness of the sub-brand both here and overseas.

The introduction of the 2021 Hyundai Kona N started to gain momentum as the company released new pictures and details about the upcoming model.

Though not yet confirmed, it's likely that the Kona N's engine will produce a similar amount of power to the 2.0-litre unit fitted to the smaller i30N. There's been no word on whether Hyundai will also offer the six-speed manual gearbox.

The all-new Kona N will have an eight-speed wet dual-clutch transmission called the N DCT.

If Hyundai manages to pair this N powertrain with all-wheel-drive, launches from a dead stop will be very entertaining, indeed.

These new images show off the aggressive styling of the Hyundai Kona N. There's a model-specific hexagonal front grille design and a larger front air intake, plus split-level LED headlights and a slightly raised bonnet design, which are familiar from the facelifted Kona N Line model that was recently introduced.

Scheduled to be revealed in the following weeks as a 2021 model for Europe, the Kona N is understood to be offered in the United States as a 2022 model towards the end of the year.
