Comparison Review

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

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

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Journey will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Kona. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Journey is much higher than that for the Hyundai Kona.

Dimensions
The Dodge Journey is a little wider than the Hyundai Kona, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Dodge Journey, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Kona.

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

Performance
The Dodge Journey has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Kona.

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

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Kona, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Dodge Journey, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Hyundai Kona.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Journey is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Kona.
