How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Hyundai Kona
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Hyundai Kona invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
The 2022 Hyundai Kona is a very affordable subcompact SUV. This year, the vehicle sees some significant changes. At the same time, it continues to be a well-rounded SUV that blends safety, technology, and convenience in an effortless way.
What's New for 2022?
Hyundai has completely redesigned the exterior for the new Kona. Highlights include a wide-mouth grille and new styles for the wheels. Inside, the 2022 Kona is now equipped with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. An 8-inch touchscreen is now standard as well. Buyers who are interested in one of the upper trim levels will find a 10.25-inch touchscreen.
The number of Kona trim levels also grows this year. There is a new N-Line model to test drive, which comes with sporty exterior style touches and a turbocharged engine to back them up. For an even more exhilarating Kona, buyers can opt for the N. It has a bigger turbocharged engine, along with other performance-enhancing features.
So how powerful is the 2022 Kona? With its standard 2.0L four-cylinder engine, this SUV makes 147-horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with a continuously variable transmission and can have either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The N-Line utilizes a turbo 1.6L four-cylinder. With this, the Kona makes 195-horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. This engine pairs with a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive remains optional.
The N goes with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder. It creates 276-horsepower and 289 lb-ft of torque and upgrades to a dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission. It has a variable sport exhaust and an electronic limited-slip differential. There is a larger rear spoiler and an aerodynamic body kit as well. Buyers should be aware that the N is the only trim not available with all-wheel drive.
Hyundai gives every version of the 2022 Kona a respectable number of driver aids. The base SE has a lane-keeping system that keeps the SUV centered in its lane. There is also lane departure mitigation, which watches out for unintentional drifting. Forward-collision mitigation rounds out the standard advanced safety features.
SEL models and higher gain blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Upper trim levels add adaptive cruise control and rear parking sensors. Safe exit warning and automatic high beams are also available.
The newly standard 8-inch touchscreen comes with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It is interesting to note that models with the new 10.25-inch touchscreen go back to the wired version of these features. Starting with the SEL, the Kona has both satellite and HD radio. Optional for that trim while standard for the N-Line and higher is a wireless charging pad. Select models also have an eight-speaker audio system and rear USB ports.
With the standard engine and front-wheel drive, the Kona is estimated to get 30mpg in the city and 35mpg on the highway. These are truly impressive numbers for the subcompact SUV segment of the market. All-wheel drive will drop these estimates down to 28mpg city and 32mpg highway.
Going with the N-Line engine will hardly impact efficiency. With front-wheel drive, it is estimated to get 29mpg city and 35mpg highway. All-wheel drive will reduce that to 27mpg city and 32mpg highway. Unfortunately, the N is not nearly as efficient. It is estimated to get only 20mpg city and 27mpg highway.
The entry-level SE model of the 2022 Kona has some nice touches, including alloy wheels and an 8-inch touchscreen. It also has a decent number of safety features and a highly-efficient 2.0L engine. Going up to the SEL will add heated side mirrors, roof rails, and a remote start. Inside, the Kona SEL has keyless ignition and HD radio.
For the N-Line, the Kona has heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Driver's are treated to a power-adjustable seat and there is a digital instrument panel. The 18-inch wheels have a unique design. Next up is the Limited, which has an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rain-sensing windshield wipers, leather upholstery, and other luxurious upgrades. The N makes mostly performance upgrades, including selectable drive modes.
There are 19.2 cubic feet of space behind the second-row seats for cargo, which is respectable for a subcompact SUV. The total cargo capacity with that row down is 45.8. That is considered average. The Kona has supportive seating for up to five. Like many vehicles in its class, however, this SUV is a bit too cramped for adults to sit back there for too long.
The 2022 Hyundai Kona will help buyers get a lot for their money. It is worth taking a test drive today.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
