Compared to the Hyundai Kona 2018, the 2019 version is loaded with new standard safety equipment, including lane departure, driver attention warning, automatic emergency braking, and a forward collision warning on the trim. But even with such upgrades added to the standard Hyundai Kona 2019, you might decide to go for the 2021 Hyundai Kona due to the following disadvantages with the 2019 model.
The back seat is cramped
If you are the type who regularly has adults in your vehicle or teens who are tall in your vehicle’s rear, you might want to have a crossover that has more room in the back. Most reviewers note that the legroom and headroom are cramped in the Hyundai Kona 2019, but it might not be considered if you don’t travel with full-sized passengers. The quality of the interior is also noted to contain more hard plastics.
The polarizing appearance
Some reviewers find the Hyundai Kona 2019 to be too funky because of its distinctive, funky appearance, especially if the bright lime green exterior is picked. But there are those who find it to be breath taking of fresh air in the sometimes staid-crossover category. The controversial elements include the floating roof, a trendy design, and the boxy shape inspired by the 1990s SUV. You could be the type who prefers a vehicle with a traditional look.
The Hyundai Kona 2019 vs. its competitors
The other electric vehicles within the Hyundai Kona 2019 price range include the Chevy Bolt, which has a 238-mile range to the 250 of the Hyundai Kona 2019. The Nissa Leaf is at a 151-mile range.
The much more expensive Tesla model is also beaten by the Hyundai Kona 2019 as it is at a 220-mile range. Although it tends to fall slightly short of the 119 Mpge economy of fuel rating with the estimate of EPA of about 117 MPGe, it can be said to be much better than the rating of Leaf, which is at 112 MPGe
When thinking about the competitors that are gas powered, there are very few who can match the Hyundai Kona 2019, which has all-around excellence. You will find the Mazda CX-3 tends to be a bit athletic when you compare it to the Kona, while the Honda HR V gets more marks on the level of gas mileage.
Whether you are looking for a state of the art vehicle powered electrically or gas powered crossover, the Hyundai Kona 2019 might just deliver to you everything you are looking out for and much more. It tends to be a great buy among the other vehicles under the level of bestsellers such as the CX-3 and the HR-V more than having to rise up above the competitors, providing a unique automobile experience that you would love. Go through the pros and cons of the vehicle and see if the pros outweigh the cons. But in case the cons outweigh the pros, then try out the new 2021 Hyundai Kona
