Over the past couple of years, Hyundai has really been working to increase and improve its crossover offerings. The beginning of this trend was the introduction of the 2020 Hyundai Kona, which has in turn become one of the most popular crossovers – especially in the smaller classes – on the market. We thought we’d prove this by seeing how it measures up to one of its biggest segment rivals. So, to that end, we’ve decided to pit the 2020 Hyundai Kona against the 2020 Toyota C-HR, two veritable juggernauts of the subcompact crossover segment.
2020 Hyundai Kona
2020 Toyota C-HR
|147 HP||Horsepower||144 HP|
|30 mpg||Combined Fuel Efficiency||29 mpg|
|19.2 cu. ft.||Cargo Capacity||19.1 cu. ft.|
Glancing through the table above quickly proves that these two crossovers have earned their spots among the top of their segment, especially considering how similar to one another they are; however, each certainly has its advantages. In the first row, we looked at power, an area in which the Hyundai Kona starts things off on the right foot by generating an extra three horsepower more than the Toyota C-HR. While that isn’t a massive difference, it certainly gives the Kona a leg up to start with.
That leg up is only enhanced by the second row, in which, despite the power advantage, it also manages to achieve superior fuel economy. The Kona gets an extra mile per gallon across both city and highway driving combined compared to the C-HR. But the advantages don’t stop there for the Hyundai Kona, as it can even claim the lead in terms of cargo capacity. However, that 0.1 cubic feet would hardly be noticeable as you stuff it full of your cargo.
