SUV shopping can be exceedingly frustrating. Not only do you have to wade through all of the different brands, but also the variety of SUV models each brand has. While the popularity of the SUV body style makes it easy to find that type of vehicle, it also ensures that there are many different ones that you have to pick from. So which one should you choose? We’ve taken some specs and features of two popular SUV models, the 2019 Hyundai Kona and the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, and stuck them into an easy-to-read table. This way, you’ll be able to compare both of them to see which one you may want to rule out, and which one you are interested in researching further.
As you can see below, the Starting MSRP for the 2019 Hyundai Kona is less than that of the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. So, you can potentially find yourself paying less for a Kona than for a Crosstrek, but there’s much more to the Kona than just the price. Check it out below!

While you can’t get Parking Assistance or a sunroof on the base trim of the 2019 Hyundai Kona, you can get them on other trims. However, if you go with the Subaru Crosstrek, you won’t be able to get either feature. So, if you are looking for technology features or the airy cabin that a sunroof brings, you may want to consider the Kona over the Crosstrek.
If it’s power you are looking for, then you may actually want to go with the Crosstrek, which has a bit more horsepower and torque than the Kona does. However, you’ll also need to pay a bit more on the Crosstrek if you don’t want a manual transmission. The Kona, on the other hand, has a shiftable automatic transmission standard on the base trim. You’ll also potentially be able to have better fuel economy in the Kona, depending on the driving conditions and your own driving style. The Kona has an estimated 27 miles per gallon in the city and 33 on the highway, which is a fair amount more than the Crosstrek’s 23 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
