Hyundai today unveiled the first official images of its revised 2022 Kona and Kona N Line models, after giving us a preview of them recently.
Slowly, the Korean automaker’s range of N Line models is beginning to take shape. The Kona N Line, set to debut here in North America next year, will join the Elantra N Line and Sonata N Line, both scheduled for their maiden voyage for the 2021 model-year.
Hyundai has equipped its Kona N Line with the most powerful engine in the lineup, a 1.6L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine good for 195 hp. It’s coupled to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and can be ordered in either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configuration. The same engine currently produces 175 hp in the regular Kona.
The Kona N Line differs from other versions of the model with unique front and rear fairings, as well as side mouldings matching the body colour (they are normally grey). The Kona N Line also features subtle aerodynamic add-ons, unique 18-inch wheels and a dual exhaust system. Inside, buyers will find N logos, contrasting stitching on the seats and metallic pedals.
