2019 Hyundai Kona vs 2019 Nissan Kicks

If you are looking for a sporty, compact SUV, the top two choices on the market today are the 2019 Hyundai Kona and the 2019 Nissan Kicks. Both of these vehicles have a wide range of sought-after features. However,  with the various advanced features that the Kona has to offer,  it is hard to imagine that any vehicle can actually be considered its competitor.

The 2019 Hyundai Kona is the newest addition to the Hyundai SUV lineup. The Kona helps to define the term versatility. With its powerful engine and sporty exterior, this SUV has the speed and agility to get drivers where they need to go in style. The Kona is available in eight different breathtaking colours. The wheels are outlined in dark fender flares that wrap around the front and rear blinkers and allow this vehicle to stand out in a crowd with a bold new style.

The KICKS has a bulkier look to it, however, it does allow you to mix and match the colour of the roof and the colour of the vehicle to give the SUV a more unique style. 

So, how else to these two SUVs compare to each other? Here is a comparison of the 2019 Kona and the 2019 Kicks. 

Interior Conveniences

The KONA's interior was definitely built for comfort. To keep both the driver and front passenger warm on during the cold Canadian winter, heated front seats come standard. For an added level of convenience, the Kona has an available 8-inch touchscreen comes equipped with Apple Car Play and Android Auto so that you can easily connect your phone to the vehicle to stream music or get directions. To hear your music even better, the Kona comes standard with an Infinity Audio System that comes with an external amplifier and a 6-speaker surround sound system.

The 2019 Kicks offers its drivers a BOSE sound system for an additional cost. With this sound system, the speaker is built directly into the driver's headrest which could cause it to be too loud and distracting.

Other Special Features

The Kona offers several different advanced features throughout their trim levels. Some of the features that are offered include:

  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Wireless Smart Charging for cell phones
  • Heads up Display
  • Roof Rails
  • Power Tilt and Slide Sunroof
  • Blind Spot Collision Warning with Lane Change Assist
  • And Much More
