Which crossover is right for me, the CX-3 or the Kona?

Let’s begin by taking a closer look at what is found under the hood of these two crossovers. Both vehicles feature a 2.0-liter I4 engine. The outputs are what set the 2020 Mazda CX-3 and the 2020 Hyundai Kona apart. The CX-3 has outputs of 148 horsepower and 146 lb-ft while the Kona has outputs of 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.

If you enjoy setting the cruise control on the highway and settling into a long drive, then we think you will really like the Adaptive Cruise Control technology. The system can be set to a specific speed, and then it will monitor the flow of traffic speeding up and slowing down accordingly. This comes standard on the 2020 Mazda CX-3 but is not available on the 2020 Hyundai Kona.

It can be hard telling just how large a vehicle is by images. The 2020 Mazda CX-3 is 168.3” in length while the 2020 Hyundai Kona is 164” in length. Either one you choose would be a great length!

Finally, the estimated fuel economies of the two crossovers are quite similar with the CX-3 just outperforming the Kona. The CX-3 gets an approximate 34 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway, and 29 mpg combined, and the Kona is just under these estimations.

As you can see, if you are searching for a new crossover that has a powerful engine, great features, and a good estimated fuel economy, then the 2020 Mazda CX-3 might be the vehicle for you! Interested in learning more? Please fill out the form below or contact us today!
