2022 Hyundai Kona vs 2022 Hyundai Tucson

Serving Memphis, TN

Are you trying to decide which of the impressive Hyundai crossover SUVs should be your next vehicle? The Kona is a relatively new addition to the Hyundai line, so you may be wondering how well it compares to more established models like the Tucson. These are both exciting possibilities for you to choose from, and they share several familial traits that you will love. However, they have essential differences that you need to know about before picking out your next SUV.


The Kona sits below the Tucson in the trim line. The first few Kona trim levels have a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter, 147-horsepower engine. The top Kona trims pair a seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission with a four-cylinder, turbo 1.6-liter, 195-horsepower engine. For the Tucson, there’s a 2.5-liter, 187-horsepower engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.


The Tucson and the Kona have appealing aesthetics with exciting individuality. The 2022 Kona has a swooping hood with a confident roofline. Thick molding rolls over the wheel fenders, sides, and sculpted bumpers. The front end has multi-elemental LED, stacked headlights, and a tapered grille. The Tucson has an innovative, radiating grille with a segmented design that follows through to the headlights. This model is larger than the Kona, and it also has strong, flowing elements throughout its sides and across the profile.


Inside the cabins, you will notice that these two-row crossover SUVs have beautiful aesthetics with several shared features. In fact, the Kona and the Tucson are both available with equipment like a sunroof, leather upholstery, a heads-up display screen, an integrated navigation system, automatic headlights, an automatic climate control system, and other features throughout their cabins. In addition, they both have unique safety technologies, such as blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
