With an incredible blend of a bold, impactful design and individuality, the 2020 Kona is Hyundai’s shining star in the constantly growing subcompact SUV segment. The Kona serves as Hyundai’s answer to the rapidly changing customer preferences towards styling, technology and convenience.
Designed with the needs of urban drivers in mind, offering a rare combination of storage space, vehicle power and performance, and helpful technology that are not often found in vehicles in this segment.
Let’s look at how the entry level 2020 Hyundai Kona SE matches up against another subcompact SUV, the Honda HR-V LX.
Safer And More Fun to Drive
One feature often overlooked while comparing vehicles is how fun it is to actually drive. The Kona manages to ditch the dullness common in most crossovers for something more car-like than much of the competition.
Even the Kona entry level SE comes with a 147 HP/132 torque (lb-ft) engine that surpasses most of competition, including the Honda HR-V. For those looking for a driving experience a further step above, consider upgrading for an incredible 175 hp and 195 torque (lb-ft) on the turbocharged Kona Limited.
Beyond the drive performance, the Kona offers a best in class 5 start safety rating due in large part to the standard safety features offered across Hyundai’s lineup. For the Kona SE this includes Forward Collision Avoidance (camera only), Driver Attention Warning, and Lane Keeping Assist.
Convenience and Value Across the Board
It isn’t just safety features and technology where the Kona outclasses the competition, convenience and entertainment are another main focus behind every Hyundai Kona.
Offering standard Apple Car Play and Android Auto coupled with a 7 inch touchscreen give you an unrivaled driving and comfort experience. Beyond the groundbreaking technology offered in the Kona, Hyundai is in a league of its own with the value it provides to its customers. Featuring an industry best 10 year/100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty and a 5 year/60,000 mile comprehensive warranty to all customers who purchase a new Hyundai vehicle.
With the first 3 years of regularly scheduled maintenance covered by Hyundai, the cost of ownership decreases significantly. With a deal as good as this, it’s no wonder Kona owners rate their experience with the vehicle as a 4.8/5.0 stars. All of this for as low as $20,300 on FWD and $21,700 on AWD models.
