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

Pros
Agile handling
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.

well-tuned dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade ranked #10 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Palisade has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 11 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Long list of standard, high-tech safety features
Upscale interior styling and options
Sleek ride
Three rows of comfortable seats

Cons
So-so handling and acceleration

By: 
usnews.com

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is not Hyundai's first three-row SUV, but it certainly is its best and biggest. The Palisade replaces the Hyundai Santa Fe XL, which suffered from a cramped third row fit for only occasional use. The Palisade's silky ride quality and premium interior appointments teeter at the edge of luxury. Offering three spacious rows of seating, loads of safety and driver-assist technology, all-wheel drive, and distinctive styling, it's a bold statement for this Korean manufacturer.

Plenty of space in all three rows for adults

Cons
Top trim has a hefty price tag
Some familiar buttons and knobs from less expensive vehicles
No optional engines offered
