The Best 2022 Subcompact SUVs: 2022 Hyundai Kona AWD SUV

Some things are hard to find in the auto market. Something like a crossover that effortlessly blends killer looks with a great dose of practicality, fun to drive nature, and bold interior styling. Any car that possesses these attributes is well-rounded. And with the new Hyundai Kona distinguishing itself from other small crossovers, delivering this whole package in one body, it is easy to see why leasing the 2022 Hyundai Kona AWD SUV is considered the best choice in the subcompact SUV class.

Hyundai gave the Kona its first complete makeover since its debut back in 2018. So much has changed in the 2022 Kona AWD. On the outside, Kona gets a new grille, fresh wheel designs, updated lighting elements, and so much more to give it a sleeker and sharper look. Inside, its subtle changes include a redesigned dashboard, new digital display, updated infotainment system, and more contemporary features. If you’re considering leasing a small crossover SUV, the 2022 Kona AWD should make it to the top of your list.

Engine And Performance

Under the hood, not much has changed with the 2022 Kona AWD. The base powertrain is the familiar 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. This engine could send power to the four wheels (AWD) through a continuously variable automatic transmission instead of a six-speed automatic transmission. The optional 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder delivers 195 horsepower and 195 lb-ft (20 horsepower up from its outgoing model). This engine pairs with a revised quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Thanks to the refined seven-speed dual-clutch automatic that quickly and smoothly and the potent optional turbocharged engine, the 2022 Kona AWD is one of the quickest extra-small crossover SUVs. This subcompact SUV delivers agile handling and exhilarating driving dynamics. Its suspension helps to deliver a well-balanced and comfortable ride, even over rough pavement.

Fuel Economy

The EPA estimates the 2022 Kona AWD with the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder to return 28 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 30 mpg combine. With the optional turbo-four, the ratings drop to 27/32/29 MPG. These numbers are decent, more like average for its class.


On the inside, Hyundai did a great job, moving the Kona’s exterior charm to the interior. Besides its elegant styling, the interior of the 2022 Kona AWD sports desirable comfort and convenience features. Its refined and spacious cabin boasts comfortable seats and state-of-the-art materials. Hyundai also redesigned the Kona’s dashboard and gave the Kona a revised center stack and many available tech amenities. Its previously standard 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen for infotainment makes way for a new 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. There are also more available convenience features, including a head-up display, 10.3-inch touchscreen, and so much more.


Hyundai packs many standard driver-assist features like automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning to the 2022 Kona AWD.

The completely refreshed 2022 Hyundai Kona AWD remains one of the best and the most alluring subcompact SUV to lease today. Get the lowest possible rates on a new Kona. Get in touch with VIP Auto, 1204 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10305

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
