Hyundai wants to offer its US clients the option of a performance SUV with the introduction of its first crossover models created by the N Performance division.

The all-new 2022 Kona N is offered fully-equipped at $35,425, including a $1,225 destination charge. The 2022 Kona N is the latest addition to Hyundai’s growing N lineup and distills the high-performance philosophy of the N brand into a SUV body style for the first time.

The all-new Kona N is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter direct-injected engine that delivers 276 HP and 289 lb.-ft. of torque and uses flat power technology to ensure consistent acceleration through a wide RPM range. Kona N’s engine is mated to an N-exclusive eight-speed, wet, dual-clutch transmission (N DCT) for quick and precise gear shifts and downshift rev-matching.
