The Hyundai Kona picks some experienced competition as its targets, but there are some softer opponents.
The Ford Ecosport and Chevrolet Trax may appeal to traditional buyers, but we advise branching beyond the Ford/GM tree—there are better picks out there.
If style is a priority, the Jeep Renegade is a natural competitor.
It’s the only other quirky pick on the list.
Its interior feels a little cheap, but the Jeep is ready for rugged trails more than the Kona.
Same goes for the Crosstrek: it’s slow like the base Kona, and its interior is a little less zesty than the Kona’s, but it’s more durable than the Jeep’s.
The 2018 Honda HR-V should be high on any compact crossover buyer's shopping list due to its efficient space and engine.
The CX-3 is another stilted wagon, but it’s more cramped than the Kona.
