Every major mainstream automaker now has a solid entry in the red-hot small crossover suv class, and one of our favorites is the new hot-selling 2019 Hyundai Kona. It’s available in four trim levels and with two engines. The Kona SE and SEL models are powered by a smooth 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 146 hp and a six-speed automatic transmission, while Limited and Ultimate models get a 175 hp turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder and a slick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Every Kona is offered with standard front-wheel drive, or optional all-wheel drive for an additional $1,300.
With prices starting right around $20,000 for the Hyundai Kona SE with front-wheel drive, the subcompact SUV delivers high value, strong performance, good fuel economy, and it's one of the best-looking vehicles in the segment. But there are plenty of other choices if you’re in the market for a small, cute and quick SUV. Here are 10 Hyundai Kona alternatives to consider when you’re shopping for a subcompact crossover.
