Hyundai Kona N Line Premium AWD SUV 2021 Review

Hyundai Kona adds to the N Line range, Is it any good well stick around for a minute and see. Hyundai updated their Kona range in early 2021 and included the N Line in two versions, the premium one we are talking about today.

The key feature in the N-Line is the 146kW 1.6 turbo engine teamed with a 7 speed DCT transmission and all-wheel drive, and a sports-tuned chassis featuring a multi-link rear suspension.

It’s surprisingly nimble around town and good for a longer trip away for a weekend or day through the mountains.  I found myself wanting to go for a drive simply because it was fun. The DCT is a little jerky around town and not a favourite of mine.


The ride is sporty balanced with a degree of compliance. On some of our goat tracks we call roads in Sydney, the Kona provided a comfortable ride.

AS you would expect it’s also jammed with the same level of comfort and safety features as the Highlander and on these cold days the heated front seats are a bonus.

There is a bit of competition in the smaller sporty segment but the Kona is well positioned to grab its fair share.

Hyundai Kona N Line Premium is priced from $42,400 plus the usual costs
