Even at the base trim, the KONA N comes with Launch Control, Variable Exhaust System and most notably N Grin Control System. N Grin Control System offers customers a high level of customization, with five distinct drive modes: Eco, Normal, Sport, N and Custom.

These drive modes allow the system to adjust the operating parameters of the engine, Electronic Stability Control, exhaust sound, and steering to optimize them for a variety of driving conditions.
