2022 Hyundai Kona vs 2022 Hyundai Tucson

Serving Troy, MI

The Hyundai Kona and the Hyundai Tucson have similar appeal initially, so deciding which of these small SUVs to make your own could be a stressful challenge. However, these models are strikingly different when you dig deeper to see their standout traits. After you get more familiar with your options, which of these models will stand out to you as a preferred option?


Both of these Hyundai models are solid options, and the 2022 Hyundai Kona comes with your choice of two powertrains. The Kona has a 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine connected to a six-speed auto transmission. Its other powertrain option is a turbo 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 195 horsepower, and it is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Tucson’s engine is a 187-horsepower, 2.5-liter engine that is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission.


The 2022 Kona is easy on the eyes with angled accents throughout the sides and a swooping profile. The wheel fenders and lower sides have thick, well-defined molding, and this molding continues across the stunning nose. The nose shows off a tapered grille with a pair of stacked, multi-elemental LED headlights. The Hyundai Tucson has a new look for 2022, largely defined by the segmented grille on the nose. This grille is integrated with headlights with the same style, creating a visually unified unit that spans across the nose. Like the Kona, the Tucson’s façade is flowing and pleasing to the eye.


These are both two-row crossover SUVs that have bold styling throughout their cabins. The Kona is offered in four trims, and many of the trims have several optional packages that you can add for extra oomph behind the wheel. Its many features are an integrated navigation system, a heads-up display screen, leather material, a sunroof, a wireless charging pad, and more. The 2022 Hyundai Tucson’s standard features are an 8-inch touch display screen, automatic headlights, and smart device integration, and optional features include leather upholstery, a navigation system, and a dual-zone automatic climate control system.
