The Kona is playful and inexpensive, making it one of the more appealing subcompact SUVs. Its snazzy styling helps it stand out from some of its more drab rivals, and its smart packing creates quite a bit of versatility despite its compact proportions. Its responsive handling and sharp reflexes make the Kona much more enjoyable to drive than either the Chevrolet Trax or Honda HR-V, two of the Kona’s main competitors.
