2021 Hyundai Kona N side

Should you buy a Hyundai Kona N?

If you really must have a fast SUV and plan to take it on track, you might want to consider the Kona N. However, it’s just too firm for our liking and not as entertaining as the cheaper, more practical Puma ST. 

It’s a shame as the engine is a firecracker and the gearbox is good. Here’s hoping that when it comes time to update the Kona N, Hyundai decides to slacken off the stiff suspension.
