Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric is hard to find in some U.S. markets, but it's one of the best affordable long-range electric vehicles.

PROS
Fun to drive
Strong active safety tech
Range rating of 258 miles
Possibly around $30k after incentives
Excellent feature set

CONS
All-wheel drive isn’t an option
Busy styling
Difficult availability

Hyundai has made exactly zero changes to the Kona Electric for the 2021 model year.We'd recommend the mid-range Limited. It adds a host of desirable features, including a sunroof, leather upholstery, LED exterior lighting, automatic high-beam headlamps, a wireless smartphone-charging pad, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

PROS
Playful handling,
long driving range,
fantastic standard warranty.

CONS
Small back seat,
front-wheel drive only,
cold temperatures sap battery capacity.

The Kona Electric carries over unchanged.

PROS
Driving range of 258 miles
Quick acceleration and sharp handling make it fun to drive
Comfortable and quiet cabin
Plenty of standard tech features

CONS
Tight rear legroom
Availability limited to a handful of states

The 2020 Toyota C-HR’s updated styling is less polarizing, and it now includes both Apple and Android smartphone support.

Pros
Bold looks
Lots of safety tech
Soft ride
Decent value

Cons
Still some weird angles
Dungeon-like rear seat
Light on power
So-so mpg

Toyota's smallest SUV receives a light styling refresh for 2020 in the form of an updated front bumper, grille, and headlamps, as well as new wheel designs. The base LE trim now comes standard with Android Auto capability, LED headlamps, and SiriusXM satellite radio; mid-range XLE models now come with front seatback pockets and sun-visor extensions. An eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat and adaptive headlamp system are now part of the Limited model's standard equipment list. The C-HR can be had in two new exterior colors: Supersonic Red and Hot Lava; a contrasting silver-colored roof is also now an option.

Pros
Look-at-me styling, cheeky interior design, plenty of standard features.

Cons
Infuriatingly slow, cramped back seat, rivals offer more cargo space.
