The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek is gifted with an EyeSight safety suite that covers the most comprehensive range of advanced driver aids. It has a user-friendly infotainment system, and a powerful engine to match all that.

Renaming its trim levels and shuffling various features, the 2020 Hyundai Kona is one of those subcompact SUVs that have caught the attention of car buyers out there. It has an upscale interior too.

Design & Style

The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek has plenty of sporty and modern elements in it. This SUV, in general, gives an upbeat vibe because of that combination. It also has eye-catching styling in the cabin, using the most upscale materials for its class of cars. Running your hands through those soft-touch materials will make you feel comfortable just by looking at the ride. Seating up to five people, this car surely knows how to impress modern-day car drivers.

The 2020 Hyundai Kona SUV can accommodate up to five people. It has standard cloth upholstery which is kind of disgusting for a ride like this. It may accommodate average-sized adults on its front seats, but taller folks will not want to ride this car at all. Those cramped rear seats lack headroom and legroom which is supposed to be a selling point of a subcompact SUV.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek stands out with the use of a 6.5-inch touchscreen for its StarLink infotainment system. It has been gifted with four-speaker audio and provides support for smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. For its EyeSight safety suite, there are plenty of driver aids to look forward to, including rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and a whole lot more.

There is a seven-inch touch screen for the infotainment system in the Kona. This also carries two USB ports, a Bluetooth interface, and six-speaker audio. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support are integrated in its infotainment too. It also features a rearview camera, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, and a driver attention monitor for its driver aids.


The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek gets its power from a four-cylinder engine in order to produce up to 152 horsepower. Meanwhile, the 2020 Hyundai Kona's four-cylinder engine gives it marks of up to 147 horsepower only. This means that the Crosstrek is a better choice over the Kona.

The Bottom Line

There are a lot of reasons to love the Subaru Crosstrek. That is evident with its design and style as well as the list of technology and safety features that it offers. This car has an engine that is more powerful than that of the Kona as well. It wins this battle, no questions asked.
