LOS ANGELES — Hyundai's Kona subcompact crossover is receiving a moderate makeover for the 2022 model year, arriving in the spring with redesigned styling at both ends along with a sporty N Line variant.
The Kona, introduced for the 2018 model year, has been a major hit for the Korean automaker. U.S. sales tallied 76,253 last year, an increase over the 73,326 in 2019.
For 2022, there are also interior updates for the Kona, Hyundai said Tuesday.
"A new console is disconnected from the instrument panel to stress the horizontal layout," the company said. "An optional electronic parking brake is now available on premium trims as a convenience feature. New ambient lighting illuminates the cup holder and foot wells."
