A Gutsy Small SUV Inside and Out - The 2022 Hyundai Kona

There is everything to love and nothing to dislike about the 2022 Hyundai Kona. A small SUV that offers fuel efficiency, agile driving dynamics, high-tech features, and more for under $22,000, the Kona easily wins the hearts of drivers in Lougheed and across Canada.

 

What's New for 2022

 

Hyundai made a lot of significant changes to the Kona for the 2022 model year. Both the exterior and interior were refreshed for a completely upgraded look. The new front-end treatment makes the Kona even more dramatic as it rolls down the highway, and the redesigned interior echoes the exterior.

 

Inside, the Kona gets a redesigned dashboard that increases the standard infotainment touchscreen to 8.0 inches and adds in some new optional features, including heated rear seats and a wireless smartphone charging pad.

 

Performance

 

The standard engine for the 2022 Hyundai Kona is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder that delivers 147 horsepower on the entry-level and mid-level trim levels. It pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission and either front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). The sporty N-Line model gets a significant power boost to a peppier 195-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder that pairs with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

 

No matter the engine, the Kona offers agile handling and a surprising amount of spunky driving dynamics. It is a fun ride that smooths out bumps, and cabin occupants are treated to a journey isolated from pavement imperfections. In terms of efficiency, the Kona delivers 8.0 L/100km city and 6.6 L/100km highway fuel economy.

 

Models and Pricing

 

The 2022 Hyundai Kona is offered for sale in Lougheed and throughout Canada in three trim levels: Essential, Preferred, and N Line AWD. Starting at $21,999, the base Essential model offers great value to drivers with heated front seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and Hyundai SmartSense suite of active safety technology.

 

Starting at $23,999, the mid-level Preferred trim adds in comfort and convenience features such as a heated steering wheel and proximity keyless entry with push-button ignition, plus blind-spot collision warning with rear cross-traffic collision warning and lane change assist. This model is the best value for drivers, and AWD is available for those that want more control in winter weather conditions.

 

The top-level N Line AWD model starts at $28,009 and includes the turbocharged engine, standard AWD, 18-inch wheels, exclusive exterior features, and more.

 

Infotainment

 

Hyundai upgraded the 2022 Kona to an infotainment setup that mirrors that found in the larger Santa Fe and Palisade SUVs. Sitting prominently atop the Kona's dashboard, the standard 8.0-inch touchscreen system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. An upgrade to a 10.3-inch unit is also available.

 

Safety

 

Each model of the 2022 Hyundai Kona is built with Hyundai SmartSense driver-assist features to provide drivers with peace of mind as they zip through urban traffic. This includes lane keeping assist, forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, driver attention warning, rear occupant alert, rearview camera, and more.
