Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X3 than in the Hyundai Kona EV. The BMW X3 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X3, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Kona EV.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW X3 is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Kona EV. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X3 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 is much wider than the Hyundai Kona EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW X3, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Kona EV.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X3 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Kona EV.

Handling
The BMW X3 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Kona EV, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X3 has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X3 and the Hyundai Kona EV. With the BMW X3, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW X3 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Kona EV.
