Hyundai BTR Edition Elantra Sport Concept Heading to SEMA
Sedan gets eye-searing orange paint job, go-fast modsSome of the key suspension changes include an HSD coilover setup, and an upgraded strut tower brace, chassis brace, and anti-roll bars from Pierce Motorsports. The Elantra Sport's 1.6-liter turbo-four gets BTR's own custom EC tune and engine management software, a Torcon CAI intake, and a Pierce Motorsports exhaust system. SSR GTXo1 19-inch wheels replace the factory 18-inch alloys and are wrapped in Toyo T1 Sport tires. Behind those wheels you'll find a Fella big brake kit for improved stopping power. The car also features a Devil's Own water/menthanol injection system.
The automaker is not revealing a lot of details about the U.S.-spec model, but we know from before it will be offered with two four-cylinder gasoline engines, mated to both front- and all-wheel drive configurations. The entry-level variant will be powered by a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated unit with 147 horsepower (110 kilowatts) and 132 pound feet (179 Newton-meters) of torque, paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox. In this version, the Kona will need 10 seconds to reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill and will hit a top speed of 120 mph (193 kph).
2018 Hyundai Kona U.S.-Spec First Look: Gunning for HR-V
Last June we trekked to Seoul, South Korea, for a brief first look at the forthcoming 2018 Hyundai Kona. Now that the brand’s sub-Tucson-sized CUV has made its formal debut in Los Angeles, we have many more details to share. The Hyundai Kona’s new platform is derived from the Elantra sedan’s, borrowing a similar suspension setup of struts in front and offering a choice of trailing torsion beam (front drive) or multilink (all-wheel drive) rear suspension setups that mimic those on the Elantra GT and GT Sport, respectively. Aggressive 18-inch wheels wrapped in 235/45R18 tires promise segment-leading dynamic handling.
Opt for the 1.6-liter turbo inline-four and you will have 175 hp (130 kW) and 195 lb-ft (264 Nm) of torque under the hood, channeled to the wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Acceleration time drops to 7.7 seconds and top speed goes up to 130 mph (209 kph). As far as we know, neither the 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo, nor the 1.6-liter diesel, both offered on the European market, are not planned for America.
Based on an entirely new B-segment platform, the small crossover will deliver class-leading interior space, according to the manufacturer, with more headroom than any of its competitors. The architecture is shared with Kia’s Stonic crossover.
We will have to wait until further details are released for more info, but we can already confirm the Kona will be available with a number of standard and optional safety systems. These include blind spot warning, traffic collision warning, driver attention warning, high beam assist, lane keep assist, and more.
The Kona is already available to order in some European countries and in Hyundai’s home market, South Korea. We expect U.S. order books to open before the end of the year.

A sporty design with some additional safety techWhen compared to the current model, the teaser image sports thinner headlights and redesigned taillights. A new prominent and continuous body line spans the side from headlight to taillight. The dash-to-axle ratio appears to be longer, lending a sportier look, as does the more swept back roofline.
