The Hyundai Kona may not have been out for a long time at all, but it has already made an impact. Already a favorite among subcompact crossover buyers, the Kona has just received a style update, making it even more attractive. Shying away from the stretched hexagon grille on the previous model year, the 2022 Hyundai Kona has rethought how the front of a crossover ought to look.
The sporty spirit of the Kona may have been hidden before, but now it’s out and ready to play. Designed for agile, fun city driving, the 2022 Hyundai Kona now looks more comfortable under neon lights than ever before. The core of what the Kona is has not changed, but it now looks fresher than ever. A basic overview of the powertrain, available safety, and interior technology features is laid out in the chart below.
|2.0L 4-Cylinder Engine or 1.6L 4-Cylinder Turbo Engine||Power Sunroof||Steering Wheel Locks when Key is Removed|
|195 Horsepower (Turbo)||BlueLink||Parking Distance Warning – Reverse|
|195 Torque (Turbo)||Metal Sports Pedals||Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection|
|6-Speed Automatic or 7-Speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission||Wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®||Highway Driving Assist|
Just because the 2022 Hyundai Kona has a new, more urban look about it doesn’t mean it can’t go elsewhere. While it’s not built to handle trails and mud, it looks equally at home in a suburban driveway or next to some bigger utility vehicles out in the country. Only some trims have the turbocharged engine available, and they can be identified thanks to the N Line name being present in the trim’s name. Otherwise, the base trim could be the budget solution to gas price woes while still getting the crossover-style cargo space and ride height so many drivers crave.
