How does the HYUNDAI kona N Drive?

I have two perspectives to answer this question:

As a fairly tall, family man, It’s a small crossover, I don’t believe family was the main focus for the Kona, as it really targets a much younger demographic. However, I was very comfortable using it to take my two daughters to school. The car is not very large, but the interior is very well thought out, practical and spacious.

As a car enthusiast, With this car have learned the difference an N makes. What a blast to drive this car! Hyundai has taken the core spirit of automotive enthusiasts and delivers it in a potent package. The looks are great, the handling is phenomenal, the sound is addicting.

Final thoughts.

I’m very impressed with the performance delivery given the price point of the car. N cars are true providers of performance. The Kona is a sports car not wrapped in a sports car, and that makes even more appealing as far as I’m concerned. SOLD.
