Not Just More Power
In addition to the turbocharged engine, the Kona N gets an electronic limited-slip differential that distributes power for better handling, especially in corners at speed (Hyundai calls it the “N Corner Carving Differential”). Clearly not a typical Hyundai, the Kona N also gets launch control and a variable exhaust system as standard equipment, along with high-performance brakes and 19-inch lightweight forged wheels shod with high-performance Pirelli P Zero tires. Extra welding points, an improved strut ring structure and a reinforced frame provide higher levels of rigidity for improved handling and performance.
