In their press release for the 2022 Kona, Hyundai outlined four big changes:

  • Redesigned exterior and new N Line trim
  • Efficiency boosts for powertrain options
  • Upgraded connectivity, convenience, and safety features
  • Improved suspension ride comfort and responsiveness

Let’s take a closer look at each to see exactly what’s being added or updated.

Redesign & New Trim

This change is the most outwardly obvious. When looking at the 2022 Kona, both inside and out, there are multiple stylistic changes. The same holds true for the 2022 Kona Electric. The Kona also gets an all-new trim, the 2022 Kona N Line. It gets some unique styling elements that sets it apart from the rest of the lineup.

More Efficient Powertrains

The 2022 Kona is available in two different powertrains. The first is a 2.0L four-cylinder that’s paired with the new Smartstream Intelligent Variable Transmission. The second is a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder mated to the retuned seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch automatic.

New Features

The 2022 Kona has too many features to list out all of them here, but there are some notable changes we’d like to show you. The new Kona now has a standard 8-inch touchscreen, wireless smartphone charging, a digital gauge display, and heated rear seats. A new 10.25-inch touchscreen will be available.

Updated Suspension

The 2022 Kona has had its suspension retuned to enhance driving dynamics during city and multi-surface driving. The result is more responsiveness and higher levels of ride comfort.
