Starting at $21,300 MSRP, the Kona offers an affordable, safe, and reliable option for families or anyone looking for better mileage and space in a compact SUV. Kona Limited models start at $28,600.

Hyundai also offers several warranties for Kona models that make the price even more practical.

Fuel Efficiency

One of the Kona’s most impressive features is its amazing gas mileage. Whether you’re just riding to work or taking cross-country summer trips, the impressive 29 mpg city and up to 35 mpg highway means you’ll get where you’re going with as few stops as possible. The 32 mpg combined gas mileage and 13.2-gallon fuel tank means you can get around 420 miles on every tank of fuel. The engine is an inline 4-cylinder engine for lower-end models and a turbocharged V-4 for the Limited and N-Line models.

Achieve up to 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque for a lightweight, efficient family vehicle. All-wheel drive is also available, but the vehicle comes standard with front-wheel drive for better efficiency. The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission ensures smooth gear shifts and helps maximize the vehicle’s fuel efficiency.

Aside from impressive gas mileage and pricing, the 2022 Kona also offers some impressive entertainment and technology features. Let’s start with the comfortable six- to eight-way adjustable driver seat, which allows you to find that perfect comfort zone for long drives. The six-way adjustable seat is standard in all Kona models, with the eight-way seat an option for higher-end models. Speaking of seats, how about heated seating for the driver, front passenger, and rear row? This is an optional feature for mid-tier models and a standard feature for N-Line and Limited models.

The 2022 Kona also offers plenty of hands-free accessibility with its 8-inch color touch screen that connects all your devices with both Apple and Android compatibility. A 10.25-inch navigation touch screen is an optional feature for N-Line models and standard for Limited models. The Harman Kardon sound system ensures crystal-clear audio whether you’re listening to your favorite podcast or album on the way to work or talking to mom about Friday’s dinner plans. Rear and front dual-USB ports mean you’re never without a charge for your devices, and automatic temperature control is perfect for maintaining a comfortable, consistent temperature on those long rides. 

The vehicle’s Bluetooth technology sits comfortably in the steering wheel so your hands are always on the wheel. Voice recognition technology is optional on N-Line vehicles and a standard feature on Limited models. Power locks and doors are standard features for the 2022 Kona, with optional Hyundai digital key service for all models.

The Kona also includes plenty of safety tech to keep all of your passengers safe. Featuring advanced dual front airbags, dual side impact airbags, and front and rear side-curtain airbags with roll sensors, passengers get the most protection from every angle of impact. Adjustable seatbelts and standard child seat anchors secure all of your passengers, no matter how small. 

The Kona has many collision detection and prevention features, such as standard forward collision assist technology with automatic braking for pedestrians and vehicles. Blind-spot collision assistance features help prevent a blind-spot collision, and lane-following assist helps drivers stay in their lanes. An advanced driver attention warning system signals an audio and visual signal when the driver’s attention diverts from the road, and can activate the vehicle’s automatic emergency braking to prevent a collision. Let’s not forget the standard tire pressure monitoring system, highway drive assist technology, vehicle stability management system, and electronic stability control feature.
