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

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.

Following up on last year's full redesign, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson receives a few updates to technology and interior quality. Most notably, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration debuts on the Tucson's top trim levels.

Pros
Turbocharged engine delivers peppy acceleration and good fuel economy
Plenty of advanced safety and infotainment features are available
Comfortable ride on rough roads
Top safety scores.

Cons
Slow acceleration from the base trim's engine
Clumsy low-speed shifting from the turbo engine's transmission
Certain desirable items are offered only on the Limited
Less total cargo space than top rivals.

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson doesn't live on the cutting edge, but it's an attractive, economical crossover SUV that's worth a spot on your shopping list.
The Hyundai Tucson was recently redesigned for the third time in the compact crossover's history last year, and for 2017 it largely stands pat aside from adding some technology updates inside that are, at least for now, relegated only to the higher-dollar trim levels.

Pros
Classy looks inside and out
Quiet cabin and refined ride quality
Innovative automatic liftgate at upper trim levels

Cons
SE and Eco interiors feel low-buck
Cargo space still a little tight
Navigation, emergency braking are costly options

Pros
Quiet cabin
Spacious back seats
High safety ratings

Cons
Some low-rent cabin materials
