Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Honda HR-V blends great rear-seat flexibility and gas mileage, but it’s slow.

Pros
Makes the most of its size
Lots of standard equipment
Great gas mileage
Shift it yourself, if you like
Composed, absorbent ride

Cons
Thin acceleration
Crash-test scores are mixed
Doesn’t offer latest safety tech
Road manners: meh

The 2018 Honda HR-V ranked #3 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Honda HR-V has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 31 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Adult-friendly back seat
Versatile cargo area

Cons
Awkward available touch screen
Firm front seat cushions
Slow to reach highway speeds

By:

Honda’s mini ute switches to 2018 with a new paint color—Aegean Blue Metallic—and a new dark-colored wheel design on EX and EX-L trims. Other than that, the HR-V sees no other changes, mechanical or otherwise.

Pros
Fuel-efficient powertrain,
cargo-hauling leader,
handsome styling.

Cons
Lackluster acceleration,
frustrating infotainment system,
short on small-item storage.

The subcompact crossover SUV class is gaining in popularity and the latest entrant, the 2018 Hyundai Kona, has a lot of potential to take the lead. Its exterior style may be somewhat polarizing, but it drives better than the competition. It also delivers a lot for the money and checks all of the boxes that shoppers want in this type of vehicle.
PROS
Optional turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration
Nimble handling makes it enjoyable to drive
Lots of features for your money

CONS
Weak base engine

The 2018 Hyundai Kona ranked #1 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Kona has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Agile handling
Potent available turbo-four engine
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Lower maximum cargo capacity than rivals
Uninspiring base engine

By: 
usnews.com

With its quirky styling, the Kona is set to perk up some fun. Choose from a 147-hp 2.0-liter inline-four with a six-speed automatic transmission or a 175-hp turbo 1.6-liter inline-four with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is optional with both engines.

Pros
Tight build and rattle-free cabin,
well-tuned dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Cons
Some interior plastics not up to par,
penalty-box rear seat.
