Shopping for the right crossover doesn't have to be difficult when there's the 2019 Honda HR-V. This small crossover is big on versatility and value, boasting a surprisingly spacious cabin that rivals that of larger vehicles, plus a low starting price.
As part of the Honda lineup that was named the 2019 Best SUV Brand by U.S. News & World Report** -- an award Honda has now won four years in a row -- the 2019 HR-V proves to be a smart choice for many buyers! In the crowded subcompact crossover space, Honda's HR-V continues to stand out with innovative features like its 60/40 Split 2nd-Row Magic Seat® that makes hauling tall or long items a breeze.
If you're considering other small crossovers like the 2019 Hyundai Kona, then you'll surely want to know how it stacks up against the highly praised Honda HR-V when it comes to interior space, versatility, fuel efficiency and other important factors to consider.
At Premier Honda, we've put together a comparison review of these two crossovers so that drivers around the New Orleans, LA, area and well beyond can get a better sense of each vehicle before scheduling test drives.
What matters most to you when shopping for a small crossover SUV? If you're like most drivers who flock to this segment of vehicles, you're looking for a fuel-efficient ride that's affordable, while also giving you greater space and versatility for hauling cargo than what a sedan can provide. Or, maybe you're looking to downsize from a larger SUV into something that sportier, more fun to drive and easier to navigate around the city. Either way, the 2019 Honda HR-V has what you're after, and it's one stylish machine, too!
While the 2019 Honda HR-V LX 2WD CVT and 2019 Hyundai Kona SE FWD base trims are both highly affordable, there's certainly a difference in what you're getting in return for your hard-earned money. In base trim, the HR-V returns higher EPA-estimated mpg figures in both city and highway driving. This added efficiency won't go unnoticed when you're cruising around town or hitting the open road in your new Honda.
It's tough to top Honda's HR-V when it comes to interior volume and cargo capacity in this class of vehicle; after all, its roomy cabin is one of the main selling points of this sleek ride! The 60/40 Split 2nd-Row Magic Seat® that comes standard on every 2019 HR-V includes multiple seating modes so that you can optimize the cabin for any mix of rear passengers and cargo items. Honda makes such smart use of this crossover's interior space that you'll certainly notice a difference when comparing it to the smaller Hyundai Kona.
Thanks in part to its overall length of 170.4 inches versus the Kona's 164 inches, the 2019 Honda HR-V provides nearly five more inches of legroom for rear-seat passengers than its rival from Hyundai. With greater passenger volume also comes greater cargo capacity in the Honda. The HR-V's standard cargo volume of 24.3 cubic feet extends to a maximum of 58.8 cubic feet, while the Hyundai Kona's 19.2 cubic feet of space for cargo only reaches a maximum of 45.8 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded.
