Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Hyundai Kona, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona.

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

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Kona is much slimmer than the Jeep Wrangler, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Kona takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Wrangler.

Drivetrain
The Hyundai Kona has much lower torque than the Jeep Wrangler, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Hyundai Kona has the same turning radius as the Jeep Wrangler, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Kona has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Kona than that of the Jeep Wrangler.
