NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2021
Hyundai's Kona subcompact crossover is receiving a moderate makeover for the 2022 model year, arriving in the spring with redesigned styling at both ends along with a sporty N Line variant.
The addition of an N Line sport model that deletes the black cladding around the wheel arches in favor of body color. Overall, the N Line has a more "road-oriented" look compared to the rugged vibe of the standard Kona. The Kona N Line is equipped with the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine with 195 hp from the Limited trim of the standard model. Lower trims of the crossover come with a non-turbo 2.0-liter engine with 147 hp, Hyundai said.
The battery-electric version of the Kona also features a new appearance, particularly at the front.
Hyundai is working on a track-ready version of the crossover. The Kona N, with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and a new dual-clutch automatic transmission, is likely to be presented in production form later this year. It will be the automaker's first performance crossover.
