Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Kona EV offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota 4Runner, with comparable head- and legroom. The Toyota 4Runner offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona EV, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Toyota 4Runner, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Kona EV, 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 EV will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota 4Runner. 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 EV and the Toyota 4Runner have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Kona EV is much slimmer than the Toyota 4Runner, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Hyundai Kona EV, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota 4Runner.

Handling
The Hyundai Kona EV has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota 4Runner, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Kona EV has a lot less horsepower than the Toyota 4Runner.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Hyundai Kona EV transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota 4Runner.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Kona EV and the Toyota 4Runner. The Hyundai Kona EV has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota 4Runner.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Kona EV than that of the Toyota 4Runner.
