Hyundai’s stylish and successful Kona already stands out from the rest of the compact crossover crowd. But for model year 2022 the automaker has gone one giant step further with the debut of the high-performance Kona N—the first Hyundai crossover to wear the N badge. N models are distinguished by higher horsepower, specially tuned components, and a track heritage. The special initial honors two cities central to the line’s development: Namyang, South Korea, where Hyundai’s R&D team developed it, and Nürburgring, Germany, home of the world-famous racetrack where all of Hyundai’s N Line models have proven their merits. Now, all of Kona’s features and capabilities are enhanced by a potent turbocharged powertrain that can take this from zero to 60 mph in less than 5.5 seconds. But the five-passenger Kona N is more than just exhilarating acceleration. Backing up its performance credentials are advanced handling controls such as an electronically controlled stiffer sport suspension, upgraded brakes, and Hyundai’s remarkable N-Corner Carving Differential, which optimizes traction through turns while guarding against understeer. It even has a button labeled NGS, which stands for N Grin Shift because the resulting 20-second burst of maximized power combined with gear downshift is sure to bring a wide smile to the driver’s face. Similarly, the N Power Shift (NPS) button decreases torque reduction when the transmission is upshifting, ensuring that the wheels get maximum power.

Mechanical Specs

The Kona N is sold as a single-trim vehicle powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 276 horsepower and 289 lb.-ft. of torque – an attention-grabbing increase over the conventional Kona’s 147 base horsepower. It’s a front-drive setup managed by an eight-speed wet dual-clutch automatic transmission, a rare find in the automotive world (especially the crossover segment). The Kona N’s EPA-estimated fuel economy is rated at 20 mpg around town and 27 mpg on the highway.

Adding to Kona N drivers’ enjoyment of this specialized crossover is the peace of mind of knowing that it’s covered by America’s Best Warranty. This includes 5 years/60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage, 10 years/100,000 miles of powertrain protection, and 3 years of complimentary scheduled maintenance. Five years of unlimited mileage roadside assistance is also included.

Standard Equipment

The Kona N’s singular trim has lots to boast about beyond its heightened performance attributes. It gets leather seating with suede inserts (the front seats have sport bolsters to hold the occupants through the corners and curves), a leather-wrapped steering wheel, LED headlights and taillights with auto on/off, proximity keyless entry, push-button ignition, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, automatic cabin temperature control, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, and a wireless device charger.

Advanced Safety Technology

The advanced driver aid technologies found in the Kona N are forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian assist, lane following assist, lane-keeping assist, driver attention warning, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, and rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, rear occupant alert, and safe exit warning. It’s also packed with advanced air bags and built with bodyside reinforcements and a front crumple zone for optimal protection in the event of a collision.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The Kona N’s infotainment system is deluxe, getting a 10.25-inch color touchscreen with navigation, an eight-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
