Regardless of car type, even if it’s an SUV.
The KONA N can carve corners, provide an agile response, and is always ready for the track. All of these without compromising the versatility of an SUV. Finally, a performance car the whole family can enjoy.
The KONA N is not your ordinary SUV. It’s a True Hot SUV. It’s N.
Smart Shift Integrated Power
The KONA N is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged GDI engine with 8-speed wet DCT. The N DCT offers three exclusive high-performance functions: N Power Shift (NPS), N Grin Shift (NGS) and N Track Sense Shift (NTS), all of which maximize exhilarating driving pleasure. The powertrain delivers maximum power of 280ps, which potentially reaches up to 290ps with the N Grin Shift, and maximum torque of 40.0 kgf·m.
The engine offers a flat power that prolongs maximum power at high RPM and enhances acceleration for even more fun, be it on the road or racetrack.
E-LSD for dynamic cornering and refined traction control
For the KONA N, E-LSD (Electronically-controlled Limited Slip Differentials) does not only provide that corner-carving feeling.
It is specifically tuned to give it enough traction so you can drive at ease on any road condition.
Going beyond the limit of an SUV
For an SUV to endure extreme driving conditions, having a strong body structure is crucial.
The KONA N's body structure has been reinforced with added body welding points and a modified strut ring structure to meet this expectation.
Simultaneously, forged wheels and aluminum lightweight knuckles complete the ideal geometry that of a performance SUV.
When attacking corners, you want to brake as late as possible. With the Kona N, you can take braking to the limit because it‘s equipped with enhanced pre-fill braking logic, making you more confident on the road. The brake pads’ high friction material along with bigger front and rear discs help maximize heat endurance.
The integrated dynamic driving spirit
The KONA N delivers performance that complements its distinctive sporty design.
The dynamic driving spirit coherently flows from the engine to the exterior for a sporty look and aerodynamic performance.
- Front Upper grille with a dedicated
mesh incorporates both the N logo and
the tinted chrome Hyundai emblem.
- Rear Large double-wing roof spoiler for
enhanced downforce, enabling a more stable ride at high speed for an SUV body type.
- Side At the lower edge of the bumper, the N exclusive red accent skirts around the lower body. The 19-inch light-weighted forged wheels at all four corners create powerful visual aggression.
