2022 Hyundai Kona for Sale in Fairfield, CT
Hyundai’s praiseworthy Kona has undergone a pretty nice refresh for model year 2022. This stylish subcompact crossover now has a more confident-looking front end, a longer profile, some new wheel designs, and front and rear skid plates that add even more personality. Its varied improvements extend to the cabin as well, where the latest Kona shows off an overhauled center stack and high-level options such as a digital gauge cluster, ambient interior lighting, and wireless smartphone charging. An 8-inch base infotainment touchscreen replaces the former 7-inch unit, too, and a deluxe 10.25-inch touchscreen is now optional. In addition to all of that, a race-inspired N Line trim has been added to the mix.
Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy
The four trims making up the ’22 Kona’s lineup are the SE, SEL, N Line, and Limited. The SE and SEL have a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (147 hp) coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission. The N Line and Limited get a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (195 hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque) that works with a seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch automatic gearbox. They all come standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available. With FWD, the SE and SEL get an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in city driving and 35 mpg on the highway. With AWD, they achieve 28 city/33 highway. The FWD N Line and Limited return 29 city/35 highway, and if they’re AWD, they pull off 27 city/32 highway.
Features By Trim
The SE is set up with a basic but ample slate of features including automatic headlights, remote keyless entry, two front USB ports, power windows with driver’s auto-down, a 60/40-split folding and reclining rear seatback, and a dual-stage cargo floor. This trim’s multimedia system has an 8-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and Bluetooth technology for hands-free phone use and audio streaming. It also gets a few standard advanced driving aid technologies: forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane following assist, lane keeping assist, rear occupant alert, and driver attention warning.
The SEL comes with some more substantial amenities, like roof rails, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, rear privacy glass, remote start, and push-button ignition. This trim also qualifies for the feature-filled Convenience Package, which contains a sunroof, Digital Key (lets you unlock and start the vehicle using your smartphone), heated front seats, automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, wireless phone charging, power windows with front auto up/down, and a hidden cargo storage compartment. A two-tone black roof is available as well. Blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, and safe exit warning are added to the driver-assist suite.
Most of the SEL’s available amenities come standard in the N Line, although the two-tone roof and sunroof are excluded. Other than that, this trim is outfitted with sportier front and rear bumpers, a twin-tip exhaust, sport cloth seats (the driver’s is power-adjustable), aluminum alloy pedals, and red and gloss-black interior trim. The optional Technology Package will supply the sunroof along with LED headlights and taillights, automatic high beams, a premium Harman Kardon sound system, eight speakers, a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen, navigation, an electronic parking brake, and two additional active driver aids: highway driving assist and adaptive cruise control. The standalone add-ons for this trim include a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, dynamic voice recognition, and wired (plug-in) Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Limited gets as standard the features listed as optional for the N Line (the contents of the Technology Package plus the a la carte add-ons). In addition, it’s dressed up with premium dark-gray body cladding and leather upholstery, plus it gets an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, white ambient interior lighting, rear USB ports, and rear parking sensors.
