We drove a $30,000 Hyundai Kona SUV to see if it's ready to compete against Jeep, Honda, and Toyota. Here's the verdict.
The Hyundai Kona is one of the newest contenders in the subcompact crossover SUV market. Its rivals in the market include the Jeep Renegade, Honda HR-V, Toyota CH-R, Nissan Kicks, and Mazda CX-3. Kona comes standard with a 147 horsepower, 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. A 175 hp turbocharged engine is available as an option.
