The 2022 Hyundai Kona is perhaps one of the SUV stars of 2022, and for good reason. At first look, the Hyundai Kona has a stylish design that adds a sporty feel to the SUV, but once you get behind the wheel of this marvel and experienced the turbocharger hidden under the hood of the Kona Limited model, you will fall in love.
There are currently four different models of the Hyundai Kona with a price range between $22k and $29k, allowing drivers to choose between the 147hp and 195hp engines, six or seven- speed automatic transmissions, and much more. What really sticks out with this vehicle, however, is the combination of nimble and responsive handling with great suspension, creating a comfortable and luxurious driving experience no matter the terrain.
Since the Kona is a subcompact SUV, it does have smaller dimensions than its competition with a wheelbase of 102.4 inches and a length of 165.6 inches which does, unfortunately, sacrifice cargo space. Four adults can still find lots of comfort inside with quality, ergonomic seating with as much headroom as you would need. The design of the Kona also elevates the driver’s seat for improved visibility and comfort.
When you take a look at fuel efficiency and the vehicle’s EPA rating, it is assuring to see that the Kona is not a big gas guzzler either, although it is around the same as other subcompact SUVs. Tests of the turbocharged engine averaged 32mpg with that number bumping up to 33mpg with the basic model.
In the age of technology though, connectivity and information are paramount which is something that the Kona was designed for. An 8-inch touch screen is mounted on the dashboard which may be upgraded to 10.3 inches along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integrations and an additional HUD that can be flipped open on the dashboard.
Although the Hyundai Kona is smaller and more compact than other SUVs on the market, it makes up for this with improved drivability, stylish designs, and a comfortable interior all rolled together at an affordable price.
