8.0/10

2021 Hyundai Kona Vs Honda HR-V

The Honda HR-V is quite expensive compared to Kona and also new in the segment. Even in terms of power, the HR-V does lag behind Kona. However, the acceleration of HR-V is faster than Kona. But the Kona offers fresh techs and connected technology. The fuel economy of Kona is decent than the HR-V.

The Nissan Kicks do give tough competition to Hyundai Kona, but still, in some places, it plays weak. In terms of mileage, power, and also the infotainment system, the Nissan steps behind the Kona. The Kona leads with its nice powerful engine and great entertainment features. Also, the cabin space is comparatively precise in Kona.

2021 Hyundai Kona Vs Mazda CX-3

Both are equally capable in their ways. The Mazda has great performance in terms of power. But the 1.6L turbo engine of Kona produces more power than CX-3. The Mazda is not equipped with such great safety features as Kona. The fuel economy figures of both are also quite similar and both perform decently. But the looks and dynamics of Kona step ahead than that of Mazda CX-3.

2021 Mazda CX-3 SUV

2021 Hyundai Kona Final Verdict

8.4/10

The Hyundai Kona which comes in the $20,000 bracket, is not the best car in the segment but it can be a decent choice. Though the base variant engine may feel underpowered sometimes, if your budget is more than 25000USD, then you can choose for the top end with a turbo engine that produces proper power. The interior in the top trims feels premium and upmarket. The safety features offered in this car, such features are not offered in the car which falls in the same price bracket.

It is one of the better cars that I have driven. The ride height is good, not too low and not too high, easy to get in and out even for older people. The visibility is good and it has a ton of features to help you out and to keep you entertained. It is my daily driver and I could not be any happier with my selection.

Kona's comfort

Pros - Obviously heated seats are the best

Cons - Nothing at all

10 /10 Overall Rating

Imagine sitting on a heated seat with your phone projected on a king sized screen and cruising at 70mph with ease, if you can, that's exactly how my new 2020 Kona drives

Overall Review

10 /10 Overall Rating

We just purchased my first Hyundai ever, the 2020 Hyundai Kona. We could not have asked for a better crossover. I had a bigger SUV before and I was skeptical before buying this but my wife liked it. We were looking for a fuel-efficient car and decided on Kona as our choice. It was a great decision. It has been a good experience. At the start, it felt a little low on power but now it is quite fun to drive. It is smaller which makes it much easier to handle than my previous one. Great car.

Fun to drive!

It is one of the better cars that I have driven. The ride height is good, not too low and not too high, easy to get in and out even for older people. The visibility is good and it has a ton of features to help you out and to keep you entertained. It is my daily driver and I could not be any happier with my selection.

Just another car of 2020 with nothing to offer

Starting off with the poor gas mileage for a car that doesn't even justify it with the power. Not at all. Another issue, or lets call it a flaw would be the handling in slower speeds as if I'm driving a truck full of sandbags. As soon as it crosses 50mph, the steering eases off and starts to behave what I call normal. Only to forget these issues, throttle hang is quite prominent and stays above 5k...

Kona 2020 is versatile

Well a budget car in terms of price and maybe a couple of features but drives with no problems at all. The best part, my wife also drives with no complaints.
