Chassis and Handling
Sporting a front-wheel drive set-up, the all-new KONA N uses a sought-after limited-slip differential to aid the handling and enhance the ability to launch the car more effectively, in harmony with the vehicle's launch control system.
Specially developed Pirelli P-Zero high performance tyres ensure that the all-new KONA N gets maximum grip, along with wrapping this SUV's lightweight 19-inch forged alloy wheels perfectly, ensuring the all-new KONA N can cut it at the track, as well as impress on varying types of terrain too.
R-MDPS, which stands for Rack-mounted Motor Driven Power Steering system guarantee the all-new KONA N provides direct and accurate steering with enhanced feedback. This ensures drivers can unlock the all-new KONA N's potential in being an ultra fun-to-drive performance SUV, vowing to put a smile on the face of the keenest of driver.
Technology and Drive Modes
Selectable drive modes are a must for any new performance vehicle, allowing drivers to flick between varying modes based on their mood or the nature of the drive at hand. Therefore, the all-new Hyundai KONA N comes with five distinct driving modes: Eco, Normal, Sport, N and Custom.
These modes alter the character of the all-new KONA N by adjusting the parameters of the engine, exhaust sound, steering and Electronic Stability Control to optimise the vehicle in varying conditions and moods.
