Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Crosstrek than in the Hyundai Kona, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Crosstrek 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
With the Subaru Crosstrek, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Kona, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Subaru Crosstrek. 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 Hyundai Kona is much higher than that for the Subaru Crosstrek.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Kona is about the same width as the Subaru Crosstrek. 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 Subaru Crosstrek.

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

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

Performance
The Hyundai Kona has a little less horsepower than the Subaru Crosstrek.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Kona and the Subaru Crosstrek. The Hyundai Kona has significantly less cargo capacity than the Subaru Crosstrek.

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