Research: 2023 Hyundai Kona Crossover SUV Near Charlotte NC


2023 Hyundai Kona for Sale near Charlotte

A subcompact crossover is a great way to get more practicality from your daily driver while retaining convenient space requirements and city-friendly maneuverability. The Hyundai Kona is among the most compelling models in the segment, offering comfortable and versatile accommodations, myriad amenities, and nimble driving dynamics to complement its sporty styling. Plus, with its nicely equipped trim levels, accessible price tag, and industry-topping warranty coverage, it also represents one of the best values.


Kona SE and SEL are powered by an economical 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine sending 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels through Hyundai's Intelligent Variable Automatic Transmission. Or you can select available all-wheel drive for more sure-footed handling in inclement conditions.

Waxhaw wayfarers seeking something more potent can look to the Kona N Line or Limited trims equipped with a 1.6-liter turbo-four (195 hp, 195 lb-ft) and a sporty seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Finally, if you want a hot hatchback driving experience but need a bit more practicality, there's the Hyundai Kona N. This exhilarating subcompact crossover finds motivation in a boisterous 2.0-liter turbo-four (276 hp, 289 lb-ft) and adds performance features like an eight-speed DCT, an electronic limited-slip differential, upgraded tires and brakes, and more.

Interior and Utility

The 2023 Hyundai Kona is surprisingly accommodating despite what its "subcompact" designation might suggest. It offers ample passenger space, attractive and modern styling, and nicely cushioned, supportive, and adjustable seats that provide long-distance comfort. Numerous amenities are available to enhance your Charlotte-area drives, including heated seats, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, and a power-tilt-and-slide sunroof.

With all seats upright, the Kona reserves 19 cubic feet for groceries or gear. When an adventure or errand requires extra capacity, you can fold the rear seats to expand the cargo area to 46 cubic feet.

Infotainment and Driver Assistance

The Kona's standard 8-inch touchscreen provides clutter-free smartphone integration via wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, giving you convenient access to hands-free calls and messages, Google or Apple Maps, streaming media, and more. Even more screen real estate is found up the trim ladder, including a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen and a configurable 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster.

Attentive driving is always the most effective way to mitigate accidents. Still, it's nice to have some assistance in case of the unexpected. Hyundai offers the 2023 Kona with a comprehensive roster of SmartSense™ driver aids to monitor your surroundings, help you better detect and respond to potential hazards, and even potentially mitigate driving fatigue. Many safety technologies are included as standard equipment.
