The 2022 Hyundai Kona in Clearwater FL

2022 Hyundai Kona for Sale in Clearwater, FL

The new Hyundai Kona blends bold styling with carlike on-road behavior, an elevated driving position, and a dose of practicality. Hyundai made various changes for the 2022 Kona, including adding new infotainment features and wheel designs.


Clearwater drivers have three engine options. The base engine is still a four-cylinder that churns out 147 horsepower, suitable for daily driving around Tampa. The other optional powertrains are the ones to consider if you want more acceleration power. You can opt for a 195-horsepower four-cylinder engine or a 280-horsepower four-cylinder engine. Each engine mentioned comes with a different transmission. The base engine comes accompanied by a CVT (continuously variable transmission), whereas the 280- and 195-horsepower engines come accompanied by an eight-speed dual-clutch or seven-speed dual-clutch, respectively.

The fuel efficiency ratings will also differ based on the powertrain you pick. The standard engine registers an EPA-estimated 33 mpg combined for the highway and city. The optional engines record a similar rating of 32 mpg combined. All-wheel drive will affect the ratings. This Hyundai SUV delivers a ride that is both engaging and comfortable, thanks to the agile handling it brings along. The agility of its handling makes it able to maneuver around St. Petersburg with ease. Its adequate ground clearance and massive tires make it feel comfortable on rough terrains, which is good news for residents staying near New Port Richey.

Exterior Design

The exterior of the Hyundai Kona looks restyled for the 2022 model year. It appears sharply styled, with plenty of features redesigned, from the front fascia to the rear fascia. It comes with skid plates and matte cladding, giving it a bolder look. The wheels are different sizes, depending on the trim level. The size of the wheels varies from 16-inch to 18-inch wheels. The grille appears redesigned with a sporty look. The headlights and brake lights are LED, and there is also an addition of a dual-exit exhaust setup.

Safety Features

  • Lane following assist
  • Rear occupant alert
  • Driveline traction control
  • Pedestrian detection
  • An airbag occupancy sensor

Interior Amenities

The Hyundai Kona's cabin looks well-crafted with high-quality materials that give it a good finish. The cabin is also spacious, evident from the ample legroom and headroom in both rows. The outward visibility in each row is also great, with each seat well-padded for support, especially when cruising for a long time. Cloth upholstery is standard in the lower trims but not the top-ranked trims featuring leather-appointed seats. Additionally, the spacious cargo area can hold several suitcases. Folding the rear seats will increase the cargo area, making it suitable for traveling with luggage. Other standard interior features are floor coverings, a glove box, adjustable front seats, and interior lighting.

The new Kona is no stranger to technology, thanks to the well-equipped infotainment system it brings along in this new model year. The system includes various tech components, including the new 8-inch touchscreen and an optional 10-inch touchscreen. Whether you choose the 10-inch or 8-inch screen, you'll still get similar apps, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. For a more engaging driving experience, there is an optional 10-inch digital gauge cluster and a push-button start feature. Other tech features include Hyundai's Blue Link telematics system, HD radio, proximity key-less entry, and an eight-speaker audio system.
