2023 Hyundai Kona Overview

What’s new:

  • Requiring blind-spot and rear-cross-traffic intervention
  • More and more people are buying mirrors that heat up.
  • Kona N Line comes with many of the features that were part of the Tech package.
  • In 2018, the first generation of Konas will come out.

The subcompact SUV Kona is one of our favorite small cars to drive around in. It has a lot of luxuries for the money, is good for the environment, and moves quickly thanks to the two powertrains it has. In 2022, the Kona got a new sporty version called “N,” a new look on the outside and more power for the optional turbocharged engine. Since Kona got a lot out of the changes, the changes for 2023 are likely to be small.

In the big picture, minor problems like the base engine’s lack of power and the car’s interior being mainly made of hard plastic are easy to overlook. Even though the Kona is one of the best extra-small SUVs on the market, you should also look at the Volkswagen Taos, Chevy Trailblazer, Mazda CX-30, and Buick Encore GX. These cars are newer than the Kona and may have some advantages over them.


  • For quick acceleration, you can get a car with a turbocharged engine.
  • Agile handling makes driving enjoyable.
  • There are several pros to the price
  • Kona N put on an exciting show.


  • Basic engine problems
  • A bunch of rigid plastic panels is used to finish the inside.

We suggest you take the N Line. Standard is the more powerful turbocharged engine, and lower-level options are also included. It also has a more realistic look and a stylish power-adjustable driver’s seat.

Hyundai Kona variants

Subcompact crossovers like the 2023 Hyundai Kona may seat as many as five passengers. You can choose from SE, SEL, N Line, Limited, and N trim levels. All models except the Kona N have front-wheel drive; an all-wheel industry is an option (which sticks with front-wheel purpose).
