The 2023 Hyundai Kona Is Still The Energetic Small Crossover We’ve Always Known

The Hyundai Kona is one of the smaller choices in the subcompact SUV segment. Still, its value proposition, zesty turbocharged powertrain, and spry driving demeanor will make you overlook its flaws.

The Hyundai Kona is not just outstanding in handling; it also provides a range of fascinating features on the entry-level model, while higher trims usher you into a world of enhanced performance and futuristic convenience amenities. Leasing the 2023 Hyundai Kona gives you a stunning subcompact crossover that is fun to drive and well-spec’d.

Engine & Performance

The Hyundai Kona can be had with one of two four-cylinder engines. The default engine is a lethargic 2.0Liter four-cylinder found on the SE and SEL trims. This engine pairs exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission and generates 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. Opting for higher trims like the sporty N-Line and top-spec Limited trim unlocks a punchier 1.6Liter turbocharged four-cylinder that cranks out 195 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It also partners with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and the optional all-wheel drive. Models with the base engine accelerate from zero to 60mph in 9.2 seconds, while the 195-hp four-cylinder needed a far more impressive 7.3 seconds to complete the sprint. However, shoppers seeking more excitement in a subcompact crossover will feel at home in the performance-enhanced N variant that churns out 276 horses and 289 pound-feet of torque.

Fuel Economy

According to EPA, the most fuel-efficient gas-powered 2023 Hyundai Kona is the model with the base 2.0Liter four-cylinder. It is rated for 30 mpg city and 35 mpg highway, and upgrading to all-wheel drive only reduces each rating by 2 mpg. On the other side of the coin is the 1.6Liter turbo-4 equipped with all-wheel drive, which is rated 27 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.


Like every other car in Hyundai’s lineup, the 2023 Kona features a well-laid-out interior with quality materials and various controls that seamlessly blend into the car’s cabin design. Cloth seats, a 4.25-inch digital display, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen are standard, while leather-trimmed seats, a 10.25-inch infotainment display with navigation, an eight-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster are offered on higher trims.

Safety & Driver Assistance

The Kona is outfitted with Hyundai’s latest safety and driver assistance tech, including;

  • Blind-spot collision-avoidance assist
  • Forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection
  • Lane following assist
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Driver attention warning
  • Safe exit warning
  • Rear occupant alert
  • High beam assist
  • Rear occupant alert
  • Anti-lock braking system with 4-wheel disc brakes
  • Electronic stability control, etc.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
