Hyundai’s sporty N Line models are equipped with dynamic design elements and performance upgrades that differentiate them from standard trim levels. The styling details enhance these cars’ appearance and aerodynamics. The N Line trims offer increased power and improved handling for an exhilarating driving experience. As well as exceptional performance, N Line models incorporate unique interior styling and premium technology.
According to Hyundai, the “N Line” moniker is inspired by their Namyang Research and Development facility, where specialist designers create their high-performance models. The letter “N” also relates to the uncompromising Nürburgring racetrack, where these models undergo rigorous testing and refinement. The N Line trim is available for the Hyundai Kona, Tucson, Elantra, and Sonata models.
Kona N Line
The 2022 Kona N Line is a subcompact SUV combining sport-oriented performance and styling with a comfortable and versatile cabin. It features specialized front and rear fascias with the Kona’s signature lighting design, body-color exterior trim, 18-inch N Line alloy wheels with premium tires, a twin-tipped sport exhaust, and unique N Line badging.
Under the hood is a highly responsive turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that offers 195 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a quick-shifting seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive offered as an option. In testing, the Kona N line achieved a zero to 60 mph time of 7.3 seconds.
