Overview

The Kona’s name really fits it: after all, it’s a quick and compact name with quite a bit of style. Hyundai has refreshed this subcompact crossover, which slots between the Venue and the Tucson, for the 2022 model year with a new look led by a more prominent front end. It’s longer and more rugged-looking, too, with skid plates fore and aft, plus some new designs for the wheels. The interior has been upgraded with a rethinking of the center stack and some new available amenities, led by a digital gauge cluster and ambient interior lighting – equipment usually reserved for higher-priced vehicles. The standard infotainment touchscreen has also grown from 7 inches to 8, and wireless smartphone charging is offered. While this nameplate also sits on the Kona EV and the performance-tuned Kona N, we’ll concentrate on just the conventional Kona on this page.

Powertrains and Fuel Economy

Hyundai makes a foursome of 2022 Kona versions: the SE, SEL, N Line, and Limited – all of which come with front-wheel drive but may be ordered with all-wheel drive. The two lower trims get the base powertrain, a 147-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. The N Line and Limited upgrade to a 195 hp turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder with a seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The EPA has estimated fuel economy for the FWD SE and SEL at 30 mpg around town and 35 mpg on the highway; this changes to 28 city/33 highway with AWD. The N Line and Limited get 29 city/35 highway with FWD, and 27 city/32 highway with AWD.

SE

Hyundai likes to pack its base trims with nice features, and as such the SE gets a mix of no-nonsense and advanced features. That list includes cloth seats, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, dual front USB ports, and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel. A 60/40-split fold-down and reclining rear seatback and dual-level cargo floor add versatility to accommodate awkward or oversized items. The standard Hyundai Smart Sense suite of driver-assist technologies consists of driver attention warning, forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, and rear occupant alert. Hyundai also goes above and beyond with the Kona SE’s backup camera by including parking guidelines as a bonus feature. The infotainment system has a nicely sized (8 inches) touchscreen, plus smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth for hands-free phone use and audio streaming, and a sound system.

SEL

The SEL adds value and comfort with remote start, heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, push-button ignition, rear privacy glass, roof rails, and the Bluelink Connected Car System. This trim is offered with a two-tone exterior paint scheme and dark-grey body cladding, and buyers can opt for heated front seats, a moonroof, wireless smartphone charging, automatic climate control, and Digital Key, which lets you use your smartphone to perform key fob functions. The SEL also gets some additional safety technologies: blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, and safe exit warning.

N Line

Besides the stronger powertrain, the N Line gets more standard equipment, such as the wireless device charging, upgraded sport cloth seats (heated in the front row), a power-adjustable driver’s seat, A special grouping of track-inspired elements sets it apart as well: dual exhaust, aluminum alloy sport pedals, red and gloss-black interior accents, and N Line-specific bumpers. Some significant infotainment upgrades are made, with navigation, a Harman Kardon sound system, HD radio, and SiriusXM satellite radio. There’s an option to add voice recognition and increase the touchscreen to 10.25 inches, but that version is not compatible with wireless smartphone integration, so it reverts to the plug-in variety. The moonroof remains optional, along with LED headlights and taillights, a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control.

Limited

The Limited gets similar standard equipment (although not the track-inspired list) plus leather upholstery, ambient interior lighting, the dark grey body cladding, power lumbar support, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink. Smart Sense is augmented with automatic high beams, rear parking sensors, highway drive assist, and adaptive cruise control. The second-row passengers also get their own USB ports. All of the aforementioned infotainment upgrades come standard on this trim.
