2020 Nissan Kicks Vs. 2020 Hyundai Kona
If I had to choose a subcompact SUV for both city and countryside that would set me apart from the rest, which one should I choose between the 2020 Nissan Kicks or the 2020 Hyundai Kona?
Alma Nissan in Lac-St-Jean, near Saint-Bruno, Larouche and minutes from Jonquière, took part in this comparative game between these two SUVs while showing a particular zeal for its 2020 Nissan Kicks.
What SUV Do You Have a Kick For?
First of all, the Nissan Kicks immediately catches our attention with its singularity, and its bold, chiselled and athletic design. With its compact exterior, it boasts a spacious interior; take a seat in this assertively designed SUV, on comfortable and ergonomic anti-fatigue seats, surrounded by quality materials that are pleasant to the touch. With generous storage space, much more elaborate than the 2020 Hyundai Kona, the Japanese automaker's 2020 Kicks outshines the Hyundai Kona with its much more comfortable rear seats.
In addition, the Nissan Kicks offers good rear visibility, unlike the Kona, where it's reduced, hindering the discerning driver. Unlike the Korean model, the Kicks is much more fuel-efficient thanks to its size and frenzied look. We're talking about nearly a litre of difference in the city in favour of the Nissan Kicks. Few vehicles outside of hybrids and electric vehicles can match the efficiency of the Kicks, even among front-wheel-drive variants of subcompact SUVs.
What also distinguishes the Kicks from the Kona is that the former is ultra-maneuverable in the city and on twisty roads; it wins the match over its rival. While the Kona offers a variety of powertrains, the Kicks goes far... very far, as it's powered by a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine.
If you like something special, the Kicks will give you just what you want with its bold attractive colour schemes and exclusive exterior accessory options. It's even more distinctive than the 2020 Kona.
The 2020 Nissan Kicks also includes a number of innovative features, such as a premium Bose audio system, USB ports, wireless connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (SV version). If Kona can also count on smart features, the Kicks can count on a very user-friendly multimedia screen that allows you to navigate easily also thanks to the Nissan Connect interface. In this respect, it's easier to navigate in Kicks than in the Kona, where the design and some icons are small and difficult to grasp when driving the vehicle.
But in the end, the 2020 Nissan Kicks' main advantage is its price and fuel consumption. It's extremely affordable and far ahead of its rival, it's frugal and its storage space is generous. In addition, it's charming, distinctive and versatile; sales for this sub-compact SUV are on the rise across North America thanks notably to its quality/price ratio.
In fact, experts have no hesitation in recommending it given its great success and versatility in the city and on the roads of Quebec and Canada.
In closing, if we had to decide on a winner, we would be inclined to say that the 2020 Nissan Kicks is much more affordable, more stylish and more distinctive than the 2020 Hyundai Kona. It's a perfect blend of comfort, handling and a wild character. It's comfortable, ergonomic and has a large cargo capacity for its class. To us, it is clear that the Japanese model outperforms its Korean rival.
