2022 Jeep Compass vs 2022 Hyundai Kona

The 2022 SUVs are here, and with so many makes and models out there on the market, it can be a daunting task to know which of these SUVs best suits you and your family's needs. Well, we here at Marburger Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM are here to help you out, which is why we have taken two of the best out there in the 2022 Jeep Compass and the Hyundai Kona and compared their engine options and features so that you have a better idea of which one is more superior. Continue reading down below for our comparison!

2022 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

All versions of the 2022 Jeep Compass come with a sturdy 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes a terrific 177 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque. On the Sport and Latitude trims, front-wheel-drive will come standard, with all-wheel-drive being optional. All-wheel-drive comes standard on the Latitude Lux, Limited, and Trailhawk. If you opt for front-wheel-drive, the Compass will come with a six-speed automatic transmission, while all-wheel-drive comes with a nine-speed automatic. There is nowhere the Compass can't go and nothing it can't go over!

2022 Hyundai Kona Power & Handling

There are a couple of engine options available for the 2022 Kona, and there is some decent power to be found here. On the first couple of trims, the Kona will come standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque and pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission. When you go with the N Line or the Limited, the Kona ups its engine to a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder which connects to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The last engine is only available for the Kona N, and it's a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Like the Compass, front-wheel-drive comes standard, though all-wheel-drive is optional for all trims outside of the Kona N.

2022 Jeep Compass Features & Design

There are five trim levels available for the 2022 Compass, and all of them are filled to the brim with available features. The base Sport trim starts things off as it comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, heated mirrors, roof rails, rear air vents, an adjustable load floor, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen that has the spectacular new Uconnect 5 System with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Up next is the wonderful Latitude trim, which mixes in premium cloth/vinyl seats, a leather shift knob, ambient interior lighting, 17-inch alloy wheels, and automatic headlights. Several options are available for the Latitude, which adds to the fun with a wireless charger, heated front seats, and dual-zone automatic climate control. If you like luxury, we highly recommend the new Latitude Lux trim with leather and heated front seats, 18-inch wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote start, and a 10.1-inch touchscreen. The Limited adds to this with a power driver's seat with lumbar control and rain-sensing wipers. The Trailhawk adds the most off-road items, such as a Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 system with Rock mode, hill-descent control, and a 30-degree approach angle.

2022 Hyundai Kona Features & Design

Five trim levels are also available for the 2022 Kona, and there are some interesting features available here. Leading things off is the SE, which comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, a height-adjustable seat, and an 8-inch touchscreen with a six-speaker audio system and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Upping things is the SEL which has a remote engine start, heated mirrors, roof rails, tinted rear windows, and keyless entry and ignition. The N Line is more sporty as it has unique 18-inch wheels, a restyled bumper and grille, upgraded cloth upholstery, and a 10.25-inch digital instrument panel. Higher trims round things out with more luxury, tech, and performance-enhanced features such as automatic wipers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, rear USB ports, and adaptive cruise control.


While the Hyundai Kona puts up a good fight, it can't compete with what the 2022 Compass offers! We love the engine for the Compass, as well as the numerous tech, luxury, and off-roading features it has, which make it one of the most well-rounded vehicles on the road. We highly recommend taking a test drive of the 2022 Compass by heading down to Marburger Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM and schedule one with our amazing sales team, who will be more than happy to accompany you on the test drive so you can enjoy the features.
