Pit the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Against the 2022 Hyundai Kona: Which Model is Right for You?

Shopping for a new compact SUV? The Subaru Crosstrek is a well-regarded model that offers a full scope of convenient amenities behind the wheel. From the latest infotainment tech to cutting-edge safety and comfort features, this Subaru SUV is a standout for its varied standard and available features. Moreover, the Subaru Crosstrek rides with assurance with its ample foul-weather capabilities. You're a sharp-eyed individual and are likely looking for a model that's truly the best fit for your unique needs. Check out how the Subaru Crosstrek compares to the Hyundai Kona, a close competitor, below before setting up a test drive over the phone.

A Brief Comparison of the Subaru Crosstrek with the Hyundai Kona

  • The Subaru Crosstrek Includes All-Wheel-Drive at No Cost: Are you an adventurer at heart? Let the Subaru Crosstrek take you further than ever before without compromise, thanks to a standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system. The Hyundai Kona also features an all-wheel-drive system, but you'll have to shell out some additional savings for the available drivetrain.
  • The Subaru Crosstrek Rides Higher Off the Ground: The Subaru Crosstrek sits a roomy 8.7-inches off the ground allowing Belmont, MA, area drivers to traverse rough and uneven terrain with more ease than most others on the roads. The Hyundai Kona touts a 6.7-inch ground clearance rating. It's enough to tackle backroad driving but doesn't offer the same level of versatility and trail-cred as the Crosstrek does.
  • The Subaru Crosstrek Features More Standard Engine Power: You're the pragmatic sort, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy your errand-running and commutes around town with a peppy engine and composed driving dynamics. The base Crosstrek model houses a 2.0-liter engine under the hood capable of making 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, the Hyundai Kona's base engine makes 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. For a touch more fun behind the wheel, we'd suggest opting for the Subaru Crosstrek. You will also enjoy the option of a hybrid engine - the Kona doesn't offer a similar setup.
