Overview

Most subcompact SUVs tend to be practical and fuel-efficient, but few offer the fun handling and futuristic style of the Hyundai Kona. Two motors are offered, including a potent 195-hp turbo, and drivers can expect up to 35 mpg on the highway. The Kona’s useful rear liftgate allows for easy cargo access, and Hyundai includes many active safety features for its low price. Like all Hyundai’s, the Kona offers one of the best warranties in its class.

Pros

Sporty style and handling; Generous standard features set; Economical engines; Lengthy warranty coverage

Cons

Underpowered base motor; Outdated cabin design; Tight rear-seat space

  • What is MSRP?

    MSRP stands for Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, sometimes also known as the sticker price. Because this price is only a suggestion, a dealer can choose to sell a vehicle above—or, more often, below—MSRP.

  • What is Market Average?

    Based on actual recent transactions other buyers have made, the Market Average shows you the average price others paid for vehicles similar to the one you want, while taking into account that most of these vehicles have different option combinations from the ones you specified.

  • Statewide, Regional, and National Data

    If there are insufficient transactions in your area, we calculate your Market Average by gathering statewide, regional, or national data. Because this data can come from a large geographical area it may not be as representative of your local market.

2022 Hyundai Kona Model Description

What's New Refreshed exterior styling; All-new dashboard design; Updated infotainment system; N Line trim joins the lineup

The Hyundai Kona is eye-catching with its modern styling, but its appeal is more than skin deep. Hyundai offers customers a well-rounded small SUV that is fuel-efficient, engaging to drive, and comfortable for a small family. Its large cargo area provides good functionality for bulkier items. Standard safety technology and the optional all-wheel-drive system give drivers extra peace of mind in bad weather. Some rivals are more luxurious and offer more rear-seat space, while others are better off-road. But the Kona’s mix of value, tech, and sportiness make it a hard option to pass up in the small SUV category.

Hyundai keeps things simple, offering the Kona in four well-equipped trims: SE, SEL, N Line, and Limited. Front-wheel drive comes standard; shoppers can add an all-wheel setup for roughly $1,500. The base SE model comes with an estimated starting MSRP of $21,000, coming standard with a suite of driver aids like automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and pedestrian detection. Other standard amenities are automatic headlamps, power side mirrors, cloth seating, split-folding rear seats, keyless entry, manual A/C, an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Step up to the SEL, and Hyundai adds a nice assortment of extra amenities for about $23,000. It adds things like 17-inch alloy wheels, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, heated mirrors, remote engine start, push-button start, and satellite radio. The recently-added N Line includes a more powerful 195-hp engine for a sportier driving experience. Wireless smartphone charging is standard, as is a leather steering wheel, heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, automatic climate control, and 18-inch wheels. It retails for $25,500. Opting for the top-of-the-line Limited model increases the price tag to around $28,500. It comes nearly fully-loaded, with rear parking sensors, LED headlights, automatic high beams, fog lamps, a power moonroof, leather upholstery, adaptive cruise control, ambient lighting, an 8-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, navigation, and a 10.25-inch touchscreen.

Hyundai offers two engines for the Kona SUV. The standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that comes on the SE and SEL trims offers 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque, paired to a single-speed CVT. It is not exactly quick, but it provides decent power for getting around town and accelerating to highway speeds. The EPA estimates it should return 30/35 mpg city/highway. All Kona’s take regular unleaded gas. The N Line and Limited share a 195-hp 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder kicking out 195 lb-ft of torque. It’s a much quicker and sportier motor, and Hyundai pairs it with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that shifts fast and is exceptionally responsive. This powertrain gives the Kona a fun driving demeanor, with effortless passing power for the small SUV. Fuel estimates are nearly the same as the smaller motor, achieving 29/35 mpg in city/highway driving.

The Kona lags the competition somewhat with its outdated interior design, but recent updates to the infotainment system and cabin technology have kept it highly accommodating for passengers. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on all trims, giving smartphone users an easy way to connect their devices and access music, navigation, and other apps while out on the road. Adults will feel snug in the small rear seat, but kids will fit just fine. There is good in-cabin storage for small items like sunglasses and snacks, and the Kona’s versatile hatchback cargo area offers plenty of room for hauling strollers and other family gear.

The Starting Market Average is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the least expensive configuration of this vehicle. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations. The data underlying the Starting Market Average calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Starting Market Average is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
