2022 Hyundai Kona - Now in Kanata
If you're looking for a subcompact SUV that combines powerful performance with the nimble agility of a hatchback, there's no reason to look further than the Hyundai Kona. The model has been a strong Canadian favourite since its launch in 2018, and the new 2022 model seems sure to build on this success. The latest 2022 Hyundai Kona is now available at our Kanata dealership, and here are the key highlights of this characterful little SUV.
Choose Your PowertrainThe 2022 Kona is supplied with a choice of two powertrain configurations. The starting point is a 2.0L four-cylinder engine making a healthy 147 horsepower and 132lb-ft of torque, an ideal combination of power and economy for typical urban duties. The output is passed to all-wheel drive as standard, with a six-speed automatic transmission providing smooth shifting in all the right places.
But to step up the pace a little, there's a higher-powered engine option available. A 1.6L turbo mill makes 195 horsepower and 195lb-ft, pushing this subcompact SUV to a new level of responsiveness and confidence. For this engine, the transmission is upgraded to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic design, again feeding all-wheel drive as standard.
Impressive Fuel EconomyThe Kona is firmly targeted at everyday driving, an area where fuel economy is highly important. Thankfully, the 2022 model doesn't disappoint, with the standard powertrain delivering an impressive highway rating of 7.1L / 100km. What's more, moving up to the high-powered turbo configuration won't increase your running costs by much, with an equally impressive highway rating of 7.3L / 100km.
Interior Features and InfotainmentFor a small car the Kona's interior is surprisingly plush, with standard and available features including automatic climate control, leather seating, and a powered adjustable driver's seat. Most of the essential controllers are conveniently mounted on the steering wheel, for a hands-on, distraction-free drive.
Infotainment is accessed via an 8" touchscreen display as standard, with a larger 10.3" model available as an upgrade. Smartphone integration is provided across the range via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while optional extras include wireless connectivity and an advanced head-up display including navigation and other essential data.
Driver Assistance and Active Safety SystemsThe impressive level of technology continues into the suite of advanced safety and driver assist systems available as standard or optional extras. Key highlights include:
- Forward collision warnings with automatic emergency braking. - Lane departure warnings, lane keeping assistance. - Driver attention and alertness monitoring. - Automatic high-beam headlights.
