So, you’re looking at purchasing a crossover from Hyundai? Wise choice. The Hyundai brand is producing some of the most compelling crossovers on the market and the 2019 Kona and Tucson are no exceptions.
If you’re stuck between these two red-hot crossovers, perhaps this comparison we’ve put together with some help from our friends at AutoGuide.com can assist you in the decision-making process.
Horses Under The Hood
If you want more “pep in your step,” then the 2019 Kona is the winner. The standard 2.0L 147 horsepower engine is nice, but it’s the turbocharged 175 horsepower found in the Limited and Ultimate Kona trims that takes the cake.
The MVP of MPG?
The Kona sports less mass and also offers a “newer and more efficient powertrain” according to AutoGuide.com, which clearly makes it the more fuel efficient vehicle. Actual numbers will depend on how you drive, but trust us when we tell you that the Kona is the MVP of MPG in this comparison.
The Race For Space
Here’s an area where the Tucson is a clear winner: interior space. While it might not appear to be the case when comparing the front seating rows of the two vehicles (they both measure up about equal), it’s the second row where the Tucson shines. Overall, the 2019 Tucson offers 102.2 cubic feet of total passenger volume and 57.1 inches of shoulder room.
Both the 2019 Kona and Tucson come up big when it comes to tech features no matter what the trim level. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto are both standard on all trim levels of both vehicles, along with nice-sized infotainment screens.
