2020 Hyundai Kona vs 2020 Nissan Kicks

Serving Memphis, TN

The Hyundai Kona and the Nissan Kicks are both relative newcomers in the subcompact crossover SUV segment. They also both have substantial appeal as versatile vehicles that are seemingly ideal for work and play. The 2020 Hyundai Kona is a first-generation version that has exciting capabilities and numerous thoughtful features. The Kicks is also in its first generation, but it delivers a different experience to its driver and passengers. Which of these crossover SUVs is a great option for you?


The 2020 Hyundai has many brand-specific design traits, such as a hexagonal grille with honeycomb mesh. It also stands apart from all other Hyundai SUVs today with its sharp, modern style. The front lighting system holds three separate sets of lights. This includes a row of lights that peek through a slit and mounted over much more extensive and rounded headlights that are placed in a metallic port. Foglamps are installed directly below the grille. The rear lighting system holds two distinctive pairs of lights. With black body molding, a liftgate spoiler, a rear skid plate, and other exterior gear, the 2020 Hyundai Kona is designed to stand out. In comparison, the 2020 Nissan Kicks has a more traditional look across the front end. The grille is easily recognizable with Nissan’s V-shaped design. The headlights are prominent and pointed, and they edge back toward the front wheel fenders. The lower-front fascia holds two traditional foglamps. The Kicks also has black lower-body cladding, angled personality lines on the sides, and a flat-top roof that angles down toward the rear.


The five trims for the 2020 Hyundai Kona show off an appealing style with modern features that today’s drivers want. Some of these features are a push-button ignition, a premium sound system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HomeLink with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, smart device integration, a digital instrumentation panel, power windows, a sunroof, and other gear. The Nissan Kicks is available in three trim possibilities. Some of the trims are outfitted with a sound system, smart device integration, Bluetooth tech, auxiliary and USB ports, a temperature management system, and other items.


The Hyundai Kona is a small vehicle, but it is designed to deliver a lot of power. The lower trims are equipped with a 2.0-liter engine that generates 147 horsepower with a six-speed SHIFTRONIC auto transmission. The upper trims have a 1.6-liter turbo engine that provides 175 horsepower with a seven-speed EcoShift auto transmission. On the other hand, the 2020 Nissan Kicks comes with one powertrain option across all three trims. This is a 1.6-liter gas engine paired with the continuously variable transmission, and it delivers 122 horsepower.
