If you’ve felt that the SUV market has been a bit cookie-cutter over the last several ears, then you probably aren’t alone. In fact, we would agree with you, and we’re guessing so would Hyundai, because the automaker has changed the game with the introduction of the Kona small SUV. It’s back for 2023, and it’s as good as it has ever been.

The Kona is proof that you don’t need something big and sluggish to get the SUV versatility you need. The 2023 Hyundai Kona performs like a sports sedan while offering the utility you would expect from a larger crossover or SUV. It’s the best of both worlds, and both can be part of YOUR world with a test drive at Hyundai of Mankato.

2023 Kona Performance

A big vehicle doesn’t always equate to a powerful vehicle. In the case of the Kona, Hyundai accomplishes putting more “oomph” into a smaller footprint with up to 195 horsepower under the hood and available AWD. In fact, the Kona’s N Line is designed specifically for drivers who want a thrilling driving experience, as it equips the Kona with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, that 195-hp engine we just mentioned and some sporty N Line seats.

Inside the Kona, a modern style awaits you. It is minimalist, yet inviting, with a large 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and touch screen to make you feel well-connected with your vehicle. And speaking of staying connected, it’s an easy thing to do in the 2023 Kona thanks to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which can now be wirelessly connected to. You can even charge your smartphone wirelessly on the built-in charging pad.
