If you're looking for a compact SUV that delivers highly on every aspect of its drive, performance, comfort, safety, and appeal, the Kona ticks all the right boxes.

Fuel Efficiency

If you're eager to keep your mpg's excellent, the Kona doesn't disappoint. The 2.0l engine delivers around 30mpg (28mpg in town and 32mpg on the highway).

An Engine Option for Every Driver

The SE and SEL come equipped with a 147-hp 2.0l MPI 4-cylinder engine.

Reviewers have been quick to praise the power and handling of both engine set-ups. Both the SEL and the Limited are available with the option of an electric engine, which delivers 150kW (201-hp) and has a range of about 258 miles before recharging is required.

The All-New 2022 Kona Trim Levels

The All-New 2022 Kona is available in four trims - the SE, the SEL, the N-line, and the Limited option. If you're looking for an SUV that manages to combine practicality and a whole lot of driving fun, the Kona is a great option. Keep reading to find out about each trim in detail below.


One of the advantages of driving a Hyundai is that you get a generous selection of features at entry-level. The Kona SE is no exception to this rule. LED daytime running lights and project headlights maximize visibility. 16" alloys provide an attractive accent that adds impact to the exterior. A chic interior, which includes an 8" infotainment screen, seats the driver and up to four passengers in spacious comfort.

Little touches such as cup holders, dual front USB outlets, and wireless Apply Carplay and Android Auto make a big difference to the driving experience. Cruise and audio controls are mounted adjacent to the steering wheel, enabling drivers to control these functions at the same time as keeping both hands on the wheel.

Standout Features

  • Excellent suite of safety features : including a rearview monitor, rear occupant alert, lane-keeping assist, and a driver attention warning. In contrast to others, Hyundai provides the entry-level Kona with high-grade autonomous safety features.
  • Stunning exterior styling : including 16" alloys and projector headlights.


The gas version of the SEL has the same engine and transmission as the SE. The electric option uses the 201-hp electric engine. The added value that the SEL offers is mainly in the additional features that are available at this grade. The SE is safe, but the SEL is safer! SEL drivers can enjoy additional safety features such as Blind Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, and a Safe Exit Warning.

On the exterior, heated mirrors are painted in the same body color as the rest of the vehicle. The side mirrors are also equipped with turn signal indicators. A shark fin antenna, roof side rails, and privacy glass add further visual appeal. If you like a slick, sophisticated look, it's time to connect with the Kona SEL. Proximity key entry with remote start and push-button start adds additional convenience.

Standout Features

  • An upgraded interior : includes heated front seats, automatic temperature control, wireless charging, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and gear shift knob.
  • A tilt-and-slide sunroof : that absolutely rocks a summer vacation vibe.


As you would expect from the sporty version of the Kona, the N-line trim has a significantly different exterior to the SE and SEL. Features include the iconic N-line front and rear fascia, a twin-tip exhaust, and N-line badging. Inside, the N-line trim cloth seats, 8-way power driver seat, sports pedals, and high-end black and red interior accents result in a modern, slick interior that's got a racing vibe.

If you want sporty hatchback feel with all the space, comfort, and practicality that an SUV provides, it's time to take a closer look at the N-line. The features that form the convenience package (available at an additional cost in the SEL) are provided as standard in the N-line.

The option of a technology package enables drivers of the N-line Kona to benefit from details such as a 10.25" touchscreen, power tilt-and-slide sunroof, SMART cruise control with a "stop and go" feature, electric parking brake, LED headlights, and LED taillights.

Standout Features

  • Awesome sporty detailing : turns the N-line into a vehicle with presence. With an engine and handling that back up the pacy styling, this is a Kona that takes command of the road.
  • Made for drivers : The upgraded seat, additional autonomous features, and zippy engine ensure that the N-line is no ordinary SUV. A driver's dream, the N-line offers an exciting, fun experience behind the wheel.


The Hyundai Kona Limited is the top-of-the-range option, so drivers can expect something special from this version of the SUV. The technology and convenience packages are included as standard on the Limited, along with a wealth of additional features. Some of these include highway drive assist (HDA) and a reverse parking distance warning. Inside, leather-trimmed seats, a power lumbar support in the driver's seat (as well as the N-line's eight-way power seat), and dynamic voice recognition result in an exceptionally comfortable driving experience.

If you're a driver that frequently spends many hours behind the wheel, this version of the Kona is perfect. Other features include rear USB outlets (which make life easier for passengers), as well as the suite of Bluelink packages, a handy auto-dimming rearview mirror, and interior LED lighting in the front footwell and cupholders.

Standout Features

  • Excellent Driving Experience : Leather trimmed seats, lumbar support, and voice recognition
