2022 Hyundai Kona Comes With An Aggressive Look, New N Line Model
It should be at dealerships in spring.
Hyundai has introduced the updated 2022 Kona featuring better looks for both the combustion engine and electric models. The subcompact crossover adds sporty N Line and sportier N model to the lineup for those looking for high performance.
The 2022 Kona sports black cladding on the bumper, a bigger honeycomb grille, slim light signatures, and streamlined headlights. It is now 1.6 inches longer than the outgoing model, thus offers better legroom for rear passengers. The electric Kona’s front-end is now simple and smooth, which distinguishes it from its gas-powered siblings.
Hyundai has made available multiple engine choices. The SE and SEL trims carry a 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. The N Line and Limited trim levels houses a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine pumping out 195 horsepower and mates to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The Kona N is the most powerful of all featuring a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four found creating 275 horsepower. The Kona Electric comes with a claimed 258 miles of range and features a 64.0-kWh battery pack.
The 2022 Hyundai Kona containing the N Line, and Kona Electric, should be at dealerships in spring. The pricing details are not revealed yet, but we expect it will be more than $21,000 for regular models and around $30,000 for the N Line. The Kona Electric will be the most expensive of all sporting a price tag of about $40,000.
