We've learned that Hyundai's engineers are working on a high-performance N version of the Hyundai Kona subcompact crossover SUV. And while people might cringe at the idea of putting effort into making a crossover sporty, we're not opposed to the idea. It worked pretty well in the case of the Nissan Juke Nismo RS, and now that it's gone, really the only sporty little crossover left is the Mini Countryman S and John Cooper Works.

The Mazda CX-3 is just days away from its unveiling at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, but elsewhere in the world, the Japanese brand still has the compact crossover disguised for testing. These spy shots aren't too camouflaged though, and when combined with the previous teaser image, they give a pretty clear idea what the new model will look like.
Mazda has used its Kodo design language to make some of the most attractive, affordable cars in the world right now, with the Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5 (pictured above), but it still lacks a crossover in the smaller class, which are becoming popular on the world market.
