Hyundai Kona N interior
There’s not a lot going on in here that’ll really stimulate the senses. The infotainment system is well-equipped and easy to use, though
Despite being the range-topping, high-performance model in the Kona line, this N version doesn’t have a particularly exciting interior.
You get some smart-looking and generously bolstered sports seats; a few sporty blue buttons on the steering wheel; and some contrasting blue stitching around the cabin – but that’s about all there is to tell you that this is the go-faster version of the standard Kona.
There’s a small amount of soft-touch plastics in here, but mostly the cabin is fashioned from harder, scratchier surfaces. Superficially this all looks very well screwed together, but our test car’s dashboard creaked and groaned away for the entirety of our test drive – which was incredibly annoying. We hope that this won’t be the case for all Kona N models, however.

As standard, the Kona N gets Hyundai’s fully-loaded 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a second 10.25-inch digital instrument display. Both screens are clear and easy to read, and simple to use too – but the graphics for the satellite navigation are a bit on the basic side.
But hey, you actually get satellite navigation right out of the box, along with a whole heap of other really useful features. This includes a wireless chargepad, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a head-up display and an uprated 8-speaker Krell sound system. No matter how you look at it, the Kona N is very generously equipped.
There’s plenty of driver aids included in the mix, too. Adaptive cruise control with lane-keep and lane-change assist is present and correct, as is blind-spot collision avoidance assist, forward collision avoidance assist, all-round parking sensors and a reversing camera.
