2020 Hyundai Sante Fe vs 2020 Kia Sorento

The award winning 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe has taken the midsize SUV segment by storm. A combination of convenient design and groundbreaking technology is how the Santa Fe and Hyundai in general elevate their vehicles above the competition.

Voted Best Family Vehicle of the year, the Santa Fe compares favorably to any other SUVs in segment, including the 2020 Kia Sorento, focusing on the entry level for both vehicles.

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe has more than enough cargo space.

A Step Above the Rest

It’s hard to argue that both Kia and Hyundai confidently stand behind their vehicles. Both manufacturers offer an industry best warranty in the form of a 5 year/60,000 mile bumper to bumper comprehensive warranty and an incredible 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Because Hyundai has an advantage in the form of their no charge maintenance for scheduled maintenance in the first 3 years of ownership, the cost of ownership drops considerably.

Where Hyundai really excels is its incredible suite of standard safety technology that is widely available even on entry level models. This includes technology to avoid costly collisions and accidents like Forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA) and Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), but also convenience technology to make your daily commute less stressful like Idle Stop & Go (ISG) and Smart Cruise Control (SCC). The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe earned a 5-star safety rating as a result of the features combined with an intelligent and functional design led the 2020 Santa Fe earning a 5-star safety rating.  

Beyond the incredible technology, The Sante Fe boasts the lowest cost of ownership amongst any vehicles in its segment both due to its high residual value and low maintenance costs. With endless benefits and safety technology, it’s no wonder the 2020 Santa Fe was voted the best 2-row SUV for the money.

2021 Hyundai Kona vs 2021 Honda HR-V

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.

2020 Hyundai Kona

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.

2020 Hyundai Kona vs 2020 Subaru Crosstrek

With Subcompact SUV’s exploding in popularity across the United States, The U.S. News #1 rated subcompact SUV Hyundai Kona stands above the rest by offering a combination of style, groundbreaking safety technology and features, and unrivaled value across the segment. We will discuss the various advantages the Kona has over one of its top competitors in the Subaru Crosstrek, looking at mid level trims (SEL vs Premium).

Skip the Optional Add Ons with Standard Hyundai Tech

As the technology in new vehicles continues to advance year over year, more and more consumers are buying new vehicles to get access to this new technology. But what are you actually getting for the purchase price of the vehicle?

This will vary greatly on the manufacturer you choose to buy from and should be thoroughly investigated before making your final purchase decision. With Hyundai, all technology comes standard for no additional cost. This isn’t the case with many other manufacturers who have optional packages that can add thousands of dollars to your final vehicle cost.

An example of this is the suite of safety features included in the Kona SEL, including Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Lane Change Assist (LCA), Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), and Driver Attention Warning (DAW) which are all included in the SEL trim level.

By contrast, the Crosstrek Premium offers many of these features but forces you to purchase expensive packages that will increase your payment before you even leave the dealership. Due to Hyundai’s commitment to value for its customer base, Consumer Choice has awarded the Hyundai Kona as a Best Buy award winner for the 2nd year in a row!

Why Kona Owners Keep Coming Back for More

Consumers who buy the Hyundai Kona are very happy with their choice, over and above the standard safety features, the Kona offers convenience and ease of use in the form of a proximity key with push button start and a 7 inch touch screen to control any devices in the vehicle. An often overlooked consideration when buying a vehicle is the warranty and protections you receive with the purchase price.

In this area, Hyundai is an industry leader with an incredible 10 year/100,000 mile Powertrain warranty and 5 year/60,000 mile comprehensive warranty. On top of this, don’t pay a penny for all scheduled maintenance in the first 3 years of ownership.

The incredible warranty offering is one of the reasons Kelley Blue Book named the Kona as the Best Subcompact SUV for 2020.  Get all of this value for over $1,000 less than the Subaru Crosstrek Premium without any of the exclusive safety technology offered by the Kona SEL.

2020 Hyundai Sonata SE vs 2020 Ford Fusion S

Despite the fact that the sedan segment as a whole is shrinking year over year, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata offers a unique and personalized experience that is not currently offered by any competitor. Let’s see how the 2020 Sonata SE compares against another entry level sedan in the 2020 Ford Fusion S.

Stylistically a Step Above

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata’s sleek design and stylish front grille give it a distinctive look amongst the midsize sedan segment. Which is why Motor Trend stated “the Sonata looks more conventionally attractive than the Accord, Camry or Ultima. Even if it’s not your flavour, you have to respect Hyundai for pulling no punches. This car stands out, and that alone is attractive.”  The style of the Sonata is augmented with 16 inch alloy wheels, and LED headlights that help you stand out from the crowd when you are out and about in your Sonata. Don’t just take our word for it, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata won the Good Design Award, that rewards vehicles for immense creativity and attention to form, functions and aesthetics. Any way you look at it, the Sonata’s bold styling and creative design give it a distinct look and feel amongst its competitors.

Hyundai Technology and Superior Value

Hyundai is known as an industry leader for the groundbreaking technology it packs into every vehicle, including the entry level SE model of the 2020 Sonata. When compared to the Fusion S, the Sonata has a front display screen almost twice the size, and standard safety features not offered by the Fusion S like Lane Follow Assist (LFA), and Driver Attention Warning (DAW). Technology features like this lead Kelly Blue Book to award the 2020 Sonata with their Best Auto Tech Award for offering incredible value across all models.

One other area Hyundai clearly eclipses the competition is with the standard no charge warranty and coverage you receive when buying a new Hyundai. Enjoy an unheard of 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty and don’t pay for any scheduled maintenance in the first 3 years of ownership for no additional cost. Peace of mind is just one of the many benefits of owning a Hyundai. With all of this praise, it’s not surprising the 2020 Sonata was named a finalist for the 2020 North American Car of the Year Award.

Unrivaled Value

While Hyundai continues to offer new technology like BlueLink and numerous other advancements outside of the automotive industry, one thing that remains constant is Hyundai’s dedication to providing unrivaled value to its customers. Hyundai offers an industry-best warranty in the form of a 5 year/60,000 mile comprehensive bumper to bumper warranty and an incredible 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain coverage plan. For the vast majority of drivers who replace their vehicles more often than every 10 years, you will always have a warranty plan on your vehicle when choosing a Hyundai. On top of this, Hyundai will cover your first 3 years of service on the vehicle, giving you the lowest cost of ownership in the three-row SUV segment. With a deal this good, the Palisade lands head and shoulders above the competition.

2021 Hyundai Tucson Value vs Honda CR-V LX

If you’re in the market for an SUV, two popular options that many people consider are the Hyundai Tucson and Honda CR-V, but which is right for you? We’ll be comparing the two entry level trims for both options. (Value vs LX)

Technology the Competition Can’t Match

The technology offered in new vehicles is the motivation for over 50% of new vehicle purchases. The Hyundai Tucson Value lives up to its name by offering a number of exclusive technologies that the CR-V simply can’t match. This includes a larger front display, standard Sirius XM, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, BlueLink, keyless entry, and finally heated power seats. All of which are options that the CR-V LX can’t afford to offer. With all this exclusive technology it’s no wonder that 98% of owners recommend this vehicle and it currently has a 4.6/5.0 star rating on

Warranty, Reliability and Maintenance

One of the main decision factors that often gets overlooked when purchasing a new vehicle is the true cost of ownership for the vehicle. It’s easy to get excited about the styling and technology of your new vehicle but how much money will you have to put aside for maintaining the vehicle over its lifetime? Not very much if you choose a Hyundai. Not only do you not have to pay for your first 3 years of scheduled maintenance on your vehicle, you also receive an industry best 5 year/60,000 mile comprehensive warranty and 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Hyundai also offers exclusive YES essentials protected fabric to keep your seats clean and protected. This is on top of the fact that the Tucson has lower than average maintenance costs once your no cost first 3 years of scheduled maintenance expire.

The Tucson was also the recipient of the 2020 JD Power Reliability and Quality Award for the compact SUV segment.

2020 Venue Interior

Affordable and Reliable

While technology and safety features are great the current economic downturn means that the vehicle price and cost of ownership are key purchase factors for everyone, and this is where the Venue SE truly shines. The Ford EcoSport S costs $1,445 more than the Venue SE to give you a huge savings on the initial purchase. Beyond the vehicle cost, the Venue offers better fuel economy, a longer powertrain and comprehensive warranty and even covers the first 3 years of your vehicle’s scheduled maintenance. These incredible offers are part of the reason why the 2020 Hyundai Venue received the Long-Term Ownership Value Reward from Kelly Blue Book and has a 9.1/10 review rating amongst Hyundai Venue owners.
