Specs at a Glance

As the crossover vehicle has grown in popularity over the years—due to combining the main attributes of SUVs and passenger sedans—automakers like Hyundai have answered such demand. In 2018, Hyundai introduced its most affordable crossover yet: the Kona. Classified as a subcompact, the Kona is slotted directly below the Hyundai Tucson, which is a compact crossover and is now in its third production cycle.

The 2020 model year marks the Kona third iteration, with more standard safety features than ever. And the Tucson, still fresh from its midcycle refresh the year before, sports more interior and exterior styling updates. As some of the most affordable crossovers, the 2020 Kona and 2020 Tucson are alike in the following characteristics:

Ride Quality

As a subcompact vehicle, you will enjoy the agility of the 2020 Hyundai Kona. It has a standard independent MacPherson strut front and coupled torsion beam axle rear suspension to soak up most road imperfections. And it gets better if you get the optional all-wheel drive to upgrade the rear with independent multi-link design. Plus, the motor-driven column-mounted steering (MDPS) enables controlled turns, and the hill descent control and a locking rear differential make the Kona a more adept off-roader than most other subcompacts.

Similarly, the Tucson has a standard independent MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension for a smooth ride, and the MDPS is on board for precise turning and cornering. Ultimately, you will not have any complaints regarding ride quality or driving performance with any of these two crossovers.
