Hyundai launched the 2022 Kona N in January and has now announced that the U.S. price will be $35,425 plus a $1,225 delivery charge.
The crossover comes in a single trim that is well equipped. It features a turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine with 276 horsepower (206 kW/ 280 PS) as well as 289 lbft (392Nm) of torque. The N Grin Shift function temporarily increases this to 286 horsepower (213kW / 292 PS).
Eight-speed dual-clutch transmission links the engine with an eight speed motor. An electronic limited-slip diff sends power from the rear wheels to the front axle via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Launch control allows the vehicle to reach speeds of 0-62mph (0-100km/h) within 5.5 seconds

In addition to 81 HP (60kW/82 PS), and 94lb-ft (1127 Nm) more torque than the Kona N-Line model, this high-performance version has a stronger braking system, revised steering system, an N Grin Controller System that offers five modes: Eco, Normal Sport, N, N, Custom, N, N, N, N, N, N, N, N, N, N, N, N, N, N, N, and N. These modes change engine characteristics, the exhaust and the steering.
The Kona N’s styling features include an aerodynamic body kit, 19-inch alloy wheels and a stylish grille. A prominent rear wing, a gloss black grille and body color cladding complete the crossover. The crossover also features a triangular-shaped third brake light, and an aggressive dual exhaust system.
Moving into the cabin, there’s leather and suede front seats with heating and power adjustment on the driver’s side. They’re joined by a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a matching 10.25-inch infotainment system with GPS navigation.
The leather-wrapped sport steering wheels, N-branded shifter with N-branded logo and alloy pedals are just a few of the highlights. The package includes an Ambient Lighting System, an 8-speaker Harman Kardon Premium Audio System, as well as a Wireless Smartphone Charger.
There are a variety of driver assistance options available for the Kona N, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assistance with Pedestrian Detection and Blind-Spot Collision Prevention Assist. It also features Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Following Assist as well as High Beam Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Following Assist, Lane Following Assist and Rear Occupant Alarm.
However, there’s one thing you won’t find and that’s adaptive cruise control. This is somewhat curious as it’s optional on the Kona N-Line and comes standard on the Kona Limited. As a result, Kona N buyers will have to make do with a ‘dumb’ cruise control system.
