2022 Hyundai Kona N priced at $35,425

It’s more expensive than the Veloster N, but not by much

Modification: Hyundai’s sticker price consists of the $1,225 destination fee, making the actual cost $35,425. The story below has actually been revised to show the right price.

Prices for the 2022 Hyundai Kona N is out, as well as it’s predictably a small piece a lot more pricey than the Veloster N. Hyundai says the starting price is $35,425, including the $1,225 destination charge.

That base rate seems what you’ll pay, also, as there are no additional packages to add to the cars and truck. Instead, it comes typical with every option that Hyundai permits the Kona N to have. Compared to the Veloster N DCT, the Kona N (which comes standard with the 8-speed DCT) will certainly cost you an additional $400. For one extra door and also the benefit of having a crossover, that’s not so negative, specifically when we currently know that the Kona N drives so well.

As for rivals, well, they do not truly exist at the Kona N’s cost factor. The closest point to it would be something like the Mini Clubman JCW or Fellow Citizen JCW, yet both of those have starting prices over $40,000 prior to alternatives. A lot more costly competitors originate from the luxury realm, as you might quickly cross-shop it with a Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 or BMW X2 M35i. After choices are worked out, though, both of those warm German crossovers could be virtually double the rate of the Kona N.

No, where the Kona N will compare ideal is against various other non-luxury hot hatches. All of the above competitors gets all-wheel-drive power, whereas the Kona N is limited to front-wheel drive. That makes vehicles like the brand-new Volkswagen GTI and Civic Kind R much better factors of direct comparison than the various other significantly a lot more expensive crossovers. And also we ‘d be remiss if we didn’t explain the opportunity of the Kona N to cannibalize sales from the Veloster N. With both the crossover as well as the Elantra N aware now, things are getting active in Hyundai’s compact N lineup.
