TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2018 Hyundai Kona

2018 Hyundai Kona Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
Hyundai packaged the Kona fairly efficiently, but only so much was possible given the crossover's compact exterior dimensions. At 5-9 I can barely sit behind someone else my height, my knees nearly touching the front seat back. Put taller people in the front seats, and the rear seat would become viable only for small adults and children. The Honda HR-V has a much roomier rear seat (but much less comfortable front seats, at least for me, as their headrests jut too far forward). Most other competitors fall between the two. One exception: the Mazda CX-3 has an even tighter rear seat than the Kona. For those who fit, the Kona's rear seat is mounted comfortably high off the floor. see full Hyundai Kona review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2018 Hyundai Kona

2018 Hyundai Kona Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2018 Nearly all small crossovers from mass-market brands border on sluggish. Their engines can deliver adequate acceleration, but little more. The Kona's 147-horsepower 2.0-liter base engine matches these in objective performance, while being much easier on the ears than the Honda HR-V's buzzy 1.8-liter engine-CVT combo. Step up to the Kona Limited or Kona Ultimate, and the 2.0 is replaced by a 175-horsepower turbocharged 1.6-liter engine. Notably, this engine kicks out 201 horsepower in some other Hyundais and Kias, including the Veloster, Elantra, and Elantra GT. What doesn't vary, and which is more important in typical driving: the peak torque output with either version of the 1.6T engine is 195 lb-ft at 1,500 rpm, a big bump over the non-turbocharged 2.0-liter's 132 lb-ft at 3,200 rpm. When fitted with the turbocharged engine, the Kona is far quicker than competitors from Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Chevrolet, and Ford. While the Fiat 500X has a 180-horsepower engine, it also cannot accelerate nearly as quickly as the Hyundai. Even in typical daily driving, with shifts occurring far below the red line, the 1.6T's much stronger low-end and midrange lend the Kona's acceleration an effortlessness lacking in competitors. If you want this much (or downright thrilling) scoot in another small crossover, you'll have to spring for something European--and far more expensive. A similarly equipped Mini Countryman costs about $10,000 more. While the 2.0 is hitched to a conventional six-speed automatic, the 1.6T is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission. While this DCT performs well in most driving, at parking lot speeds it can feel odd. Either transmission delivers much more pleasant acceleration than the CVTs in some competitors, most notably the Honda. Unlike the Kia Soul, Nissan Kicks, and Toyota C-HR, the Kona can be ordered with all-wheel-drive--with either engine. see full Hyundai Kona review
