Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Trax offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Hyundai Kona, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Trax and the Hyundai Kona.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Trax requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Kona, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Clearly, the Chevrolet Trax is a better financial choice over the Hyundai Kona, when considering MSRP.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Trax is about the same width as the Hyundai Kona. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Trax, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Kona.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trax has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Kona.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Trax transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Kona.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Trax and the Hyundai Kona. The Chevrolet Trax has less cargo space than the Hyundai Kona, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
