Coming Soon: 2022 Hyundai Kona
The Hyundai Kona broke the mold among small SUVs. As a result, it was duly awarded the North American Utility of The Year in 2019.
It was time for the award-winning Kona to receive an update designed to bring more excitement to one of South Central Minnesota’s favorite small SUVs.
Coming this spring, the 2022 Hyundai Kona will receive more than just a prettier face. Although, the exterior updates actually give the Kona a more contemporary look overall for the new model year. The front clip is rounder and the grille was widened to match the look of the recently revised Santa Fe. New wheel designs will handsomely add more attraction to the updated look of the 2022 Kona.
What are the changes
New for 2022 is the addition of the Kona N Line model. In response to customers who wanted a sportier Kona, the N Line adds sportier details, such as contrast stitching on the seats, a thicker-rim steering wheel, and aerodynamic additions to the exterior. It will be powered by our 195-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged engine, combined with a seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch transmission.
The Kona receives an upgrade in technology with the addition of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with the standard 8-inch display audio screen. Specific models will receive a larger 10.25-inch screen with navigation and smartphone integration. You can perform hands-free commands through the Dynamic Voice Recognition, including getting directions through BlueLink.
Safety also gets an upgrade with additional features new to the Kona. These features include Smart Cruise Control, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Highway Drive Assist. An electronic parking brake is added to a newly redesigned center console for more space to put your smartphone stowed away easily.
The newly updated 2022 Kona should arrive at Hyundai of Mankato later this spring. Contact us to experience this updated award-winning small SUV.
