For Everyday Aficionados
No question, the Kona N is one of the most fun cars we’ve experienced — and we’ve experienced many — especially for the price. We also appreciate that the Kona N is a vehicle that can be driven every day. Going from N mode to Comfort mode, it almost feels as if Kona N has emitted a sigh of relief, relaxing until the next white-knuckle bit of fun. In Comfort mode the car becomes quiet and comfortable with a relatively smooth ride; still a bit stiffer than the standard Kona, but much less manic. The Kona N easily and stealthily runs errands, hauls boxes and even makes runs to the airport without so much as a blip of complaint as a mild-mannered daily driver, even delivering fuel economy in the mid-20 mpg range.
