Performance to the power of N.

N is our high-performance brand inspired by motorsport. Every N model is the result of decades of experience from our R&D centre in Namyang, Korea, and endless testing at the Nürburgring in Germany, one of the world’s most demanding racetracks. Through this painstaking process, N performance, design and technology are born. Experience highly concentrated performance in a precise package designed to elevate driver engagement to a whole new level.

Experience exceptional ride and handling thanks to ECS intelligent control  of every wheel’s damping force, according to driving conditions. 

Get a unique carving experience when turning corners. The KONA N’s e-LSD mechanically sends engine power differently to each wheel.


Traction Mode

Traction mode offers special traction tuning for SNOW, DEEP SNOW, MUD or SAND, optimizing available traction in those special conditions. Traction mode optimizes the Traction Control System, Electronic Limited Slip Differential and Electronic Stability Control for best traction in the chosen condition.


To help keep you in control and prevent slippage, you can seamlessly switch between SNOW and DEEP SNOW modes to give you the right amount of driving force in winter conditions.

MUD mode
Optimized for muddy, rutted or uneven terrain. In MUD mode, sensors can instantly detect wheel slippage and automatically redirect torque to the wheel with the most traction, so that you can keep moving despite the hazardous driving conditions.
SAND mode
Optimized for loose sand or deep gravel. Special algorithms developed for sand driving secure the right gear and help ensure each wheel receives the right amount of torque at the right moment to deliver optimal tire traction.


Traction mode is designed based on 2WD (2-Wheel Drive). Do not drive in conditions that exceed the vehicle’s intended design. For best vehicle performance, it is recommended to use Traction modes only on the corresponding surface. Invalid mode selection can lead to loss of traction and vehicle control. DEEP SNOW is exclusive to KONA N.


Hyundai SmartSense™

Our suite of available Hyundai SmartSense™ safety features includes a range of camera, radar and motion detection technologies to provide you with added peace of mind.

Standard Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist not only uses radar to detect when a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot but will also help avoid a collision by gently applying brake power on the opposite tire to help deter an unsafe lane change.

Designed to detect the onset of driver fatigue, this standard system will monitor driver input and issue a visual and audible alert if fatigue is sensed, suggesting a driving break.

This standard safety innovation detects rapidly closing distances ahead of the vehicle and pedestrians in its path. If a potential forward collision is detected, audible and visual warning notifications will alert the driver. If the driver does not react to avoid impact, the system can apply emergency braking under certain conditions. 

Using the front-mounted camera and light detection technology, High Beam Assist provides an extra level of convenience by automatically switching between high and low beams when traffic is detected ahead.

Using the front-view camera to detect lane markers on the road, this standard feature assists the driver’s steering to help keep the vehicle centred inside the lane.

Lane Keeping Assist applies corrective steering assistance to keep you and your KONA N within your lane.

When reversing out of areas with low visibility, this standard system not only warns the driver if vehicles are approaching from the side, it can also apply the brakes automatically under certain conditions if no action is taken.

As the engine is turned off, a visual warning in the instrument cluster and audible alert reminds you to check the rear seats before exiting with this standard feature.

Safe Exit Warning is a driving safety function that provides a warning when a vehicle is approaching from the rear while an occupant is getting out of the vehicle. When a vehicle approaching from behind is detected, this standard feature warns passengers with an audible alert to help prevent them from stepping out onto the road when it is dangerous.

Having the right tire pressure is more than just good for your tires and fuel economy — it’s a safety issue too. The standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) makes safety and driving efficiency a top priority, with sensors for optimal tire functionality and real-time pressure monitoring. The TPMS lets you monitor air pressure levels in each individual tire at all times, warning the driver if pressure drops.

The standard Parking Distance Warning — Reverse feature uses sensors embedded into the rear bumper to make parking easier by producing a warning sound for the driver if the rear of the vehicle gets too close to an object. As the vehicle approaches closer to the object, the warning sound will increase in frequency.
