This engine is now coupled with a CVT instead of a six-speed automatic transmission. The available 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder delivers 195 hp, up 20 hp from the previous model, and 195 lb-ft. A revised seven-speed dual-clutch transmission pairs with this engine. The high-performance Kona N produces 276 hp and 289 lb-ft of torque.

Safety

New for 2022, the Kona offers Highway Drive Assist, which keeps the vehicle in the center of its lane at the correct following distance from the vehicle in front. It also adjusts the Kona's speed based on speed limits. A newly available rear cross-traffic collision avoidance feature helps prevent crashes while backing up by applying the brakes when needed. Other available safety features include lane following assist, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop and go capability.
