Serving Lexington Park, MD

When the Kona joined the Hyundai lineup in 2018, a smaller model took its place below the Tucson. Now that you are preparing to upgrade to a new crossover SUV, you may be wondering how the latest versions of these top options compare. The Kona continues to be in its first generation in the 2022 model year, and it introduces several improvements to the features, style, and capabilities to modernize its appeal. The 2022 Tucson is a next-generation model that has been comprehensively redesigned from bumper to bumper. Are you ready to dig deeper to uncover their differences?

The 2.5-liter, four-cylinder gas engine produces 187 horsepower. The hybrid comes with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that creates 180 horsepower.


Both of these Hyundai crossover SUVs are lovely options with individualized styling. The 2022 Kona has a rounded nose with a swooping hood.

The wheel wells are squared off, and the personality line that angles through the doors is impressively tapered.
