Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Kona offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, with comparable head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Hyundai Kona and the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Kona is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. If you go with the Hyundai Kona, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

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

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

Performance
The Hyundai Kona has a little less horsepower than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

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

Warranty
The Hyundai Kona comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.
