With its 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) and a 280 PS powertrain, the KONA N cannot deny its DNA. Yes, it's N.
SUV versatility and power
Expanding the boundaries of versatility, the new KONA N delivers during your daily commute as much as on your backroad adventures. Or on the race-track, if that's your thing.
Like racing in a game, but real
Spice up your routines with a 10.25" digital cluster, a performance head-up display, and, of course, the N Power Shift.
Powerful without compromise
For the very first time, the Hyundai N division and Hyundai Design Center worked together to develop an SUV body type. The result: a powerful presence combining the modern design of the new KONA with the bold and dynamic language shared by all N models.
The front view is dominated by large, iconic air intakes and the KONA's LED light signature. The lower grille and red accents bring a real Motorsport feel.
A large double-wing roof spoiler with the iconic break light adds the N spice. Dual exhaust mufflers express the KONA N high-performance spirit.
Race-inspired control, everyday comfort
If you love driving, you will love taking charge of your KONA N from the moment you slide into the race-car bucket seat. Every detail is designed to provide effortless command: from steering and shifting to constant performance monitoring.
Sport bucket seats
Feel like a race-car driver in these sports seats with pronounced side bolsters for excellent lateral support, leather accents, and blue stitching. They are available in cloth, leather, and suede.
N steering wheel
The leather N steering wheel provides excellent grip – and direct access to driving performance features like the paddle shifters and two customizable hotkeys. And, of course, the red N Grin Shift button.
Digital cluster and touchscreen
The 10.25" digital cluster racing game-inspired graphics play together with the 10.25" touchscreen that displays driving data like the g-force factor. Better than your favourite game, In Real Life.
N DCT shifter
The N logo, sporty metal accents, as well as the Performance Blue racing line and stitching bring the motorsport looks. Leather inserts for better grip add the right feel.
Motorsport power on the road and off
The all-new KONA N brings the excitement of N to the SUV. N means more than the 280 PS flat power engine or the 8-speed wet dual-clutch transmission. It means performance features such as launch control, the N corner carving differential, and the N Grin Control System with five drive modes (including a customizable one). Experience them all, in any driving condition and on all kinds of terrains.
The 2.0 T-GDi engine delivers 280 PS and a substantial increase in flat power for more torque and power at lower RPMs, improving responsiveness, acceleration, and fun.
N Corner Carving Differential
The Electronic limited-slip differential (E-LSD) controls the power transfer to each front wheel. It improves steering and stability in high speed turns.
The quick-shifting automatic wet-type 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (N DCT) also lets you select gears manually for when you crave more race car energy.
N Power Sense Axle
With enhanced stiffness and reduced weight, the front axle sends fast and precise feedback to the driver, improving grip and providing a more intuitive driving experience.
The tailor-made Pirelli P Zero tyres are the same ones being used by Hyundai teams in the World Rally Championship.
Traction control empowers the KONA N to perform in rough conditions (it almost feels like 4WD). Select between four different modes (DEEP SNOW, SNOW, MUD and SAND).
Electronically controlled suspension
For more precision and customisation, the KONA N suspension is electronically controlled. You say how stiff you want it for any driving adventure.
Accelerate with authority: Launch Control prevents tyre slippage and ensures optimal traction when you perform a powerful start
Expanding the boundaries of the Connected Car
N brings you more data for more control over your car and your driving experience, like HP, torque, turbo boost and G-force as well as lap and acceleration timers. The 10.25" AVN touchscreen also displays exclusive N content, connects your phone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, and gives you access to Hyundai’s state-of-the-art Bluelink services.
10.25" Digital N cluster
Created with the N driver in mind, the digital cluster lets you keep an eye on your driving stats and gives you instant feedback on torque and turbo boost
High definition 10.25" touchscreen
Apart from the Performance Driving Data System, the Audio-Visual Navigation System also connects to Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
Feel powerful and comfortable
The N focus on power and performance doesn't mean that you can't have outstanding convenience while you are pushing the boundaries of adventurous driving.
Head Up Display (HUD)
The KONA N is our first performance car with an HUD. In Sport or N mode it brings up performance data such as RPM, speed, and shift indicator in special N graphics.
Heated and ventilated seats
