Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda HR-V than in the Hyundai Kona. The Honda HR-V offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda HR-V as you will with the Hyundai Kona, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Honda HR-V 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. In this case, the Honda HR-V will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Kona.

Dimensions
The Honda HR-V 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 Honda HR-V, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Kona.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda HR-V doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Kona.

Handling
The Honda HR-V has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Kona, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda HR-V has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Kona.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda HR-V is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Kona.
