The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
5.0
5.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Hyundai Kona wears like statement jewelry, and drives like a bargain. The 2021 Jeep Compass skimps on safety and seat comfort, but delivers crossover utility in a compact footprint. The 2021 Kia Seltos combines the practicality of the hatchback Soul in a larger package with the automaker’s low price and superlative warranty.
