TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Hyundai Kona is an eyeful, but has nearly everything crossover buyers want in a city-friendly package. The 2021 Kia Seltos combines the practicality of the hatchback Soul in a larger package with the automaker’s low price and superlative warranty. The 2020 Kia Soul compact hatchback is proof of life among small, inexpensive cars.
