The 2022 Hyundai Kona

The small SUV, upgraded.


The compact 2022 Konagoes full-strength SUV in styling, technology and versatility. With a bolder face and a longer profile, upgraded convenience and safety tech, and the SUV capability that comes with available All Wheel Drive. It’s the large-SUV adventure and sophistication you need, in the small SUV size you love.

When we first launched Kona, it took North American SUV of the Year honors. And when the Kona Electric came out last year, it won a 2021 Best Buy Award from Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. Look at the way we’ve updated Kona for 2022, and it’s clear we have no intention of relinquishing our podium positions.

Our designers have restyled Kona, inside and out. Stylish new wheels and lighting elements are accented by a bold new front end, eye-catching new colors and an updated interior layout with more legroom in the 2nd row.

As the driver, you’ll feel a sense of command and control, thanks to Kona’s high seating position and tight turning radius. Nimble in
urban traffic and tight parking spaces, Kona is also an ideal escape vehicle for weekend getaways. And with the availability of All Wheel
Drive, you’ll have the help of added traction to keep you moving confidently.

What kind of power you’ll command is up to you. Kona offers a choice of fuel-efficient gas or turbo engines. Kona Electric, our first all
electric SUV, has a 258-mile range on a full charge? So there can be plenty of venturing in every adventure.

Kona is big on making personal space more personal. With the MyHyundai app downloaded to your compatible smartphone, you can remotely start your Kona from wherever you happen to be: And with the Hyundai Digital Key now available on Kona, unlocking the doors is as easy
as touching your compatible phone to the door handle?

Settle into the high seat position and dial in the support of an available 8-way power driver seat with power lumbar adjustment. Open the available power sunroof and bathe your Kona with light. You’ll love what Hyundai Design has done to the place. A restyled dashboard with
the availability of a new digital instrument cluster and new ambient lighting accents set an unmistakable tone: Kona is where fun and functionality come together.

For 2022, a bigger 8″ touchscreen display broadens your ability to control things from one central vantage point. An available 10.25″ navigation touchscreen expands that ability with a split-screen display, junction view lane guidance and new Dynamic Voice Recognition that makes it easy to tune into your favorite SiriusXM channels on the accompanying Harman Kardon premium audio system.

Need a flexible space plan for both passengers and cargo? The 60/40 split fold-flat rear seatbacks create lots of options, while a dual-level cargo floor helps to keep things neatly organized. No matter how you get from here to there, Kona makes the journey rewarding.
