Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

Potent available turbo-four engine
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons

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.
