Which SUV is More Versatile?

Kia Seltos vs Hyundai Kona Novi MI

An SUV is the jack-of-all-trades ride you need to handle a wide range of tasks. Here’s the big question: does the Kia Seltos or Hyundai Kona offer the versatility you need to get through every day?

The standard engine of the Kia Seltos is a 2.0L In-Line 4-Cylinder engine. It can generate up to 132 lb-ft of torque. That power reaches the same 132 lb-ft of torque as the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine of the Hyundai Kona. So, what’s the difference between the performance of the two SUVs?

Both SUVs are available as All-Wheel Drive (AWD) models. These drivetrains supply power to all four wheels and generate greater traction for slippery roads and beaten paths.

If you stick to city streets, you may prefer the agility of Front-Wheel Drive (FWD). A lighter drivetrain that is only available in the Kia Seltos, FWD distributes power to the front wheels and is a better fit for drivers who are searching for a companion commuter.

Does the Kia Seltos or Hyundai Kona Have More Cargo Space?

You don’t need a tape measure to see the edge that the Kia Seltos provides drivers in cargo space. The Kia SUV’s cavernous cargo room makes it easy to pack up for a trip.

The Kia Seltos has a standard cargo room of 26.6 cubic feet. You can fold down its rear seating to access 62.8 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s enough to help with:

  • College moving day
  • Road trips
  • School plays

That’s more room than the Kona. Hyundai’s SUV limits what you can bring along with you. It has a standard cargo volume of 19.2 cubic feet. Its maximum cargo volume only stretches to 45.8 cubic feet. That means you can bring more along with you in the Kia Seltos.

Which SUV Provides a More Comfortable Ride?

Greater access to space continues for your passengers. The Kia Seltos is a more comfortable ride than the Hyundai Kona.

Both SUVs provide over 41 inches of front legroom, but your passengers will feel the advantage of the Kia Seltos. The spacious Kia SUV has 38 inches of rear legroom. The Kona only makes 35.2 inches available.

The Kia Seltos also helps you get in tune with technology that lets everyone enjoy the road. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® help you:

  • Select a playlist
  • Find navigation
  • Make hands-free calls

This technology and space help you stretch out and enjoy the road. How can you experience the soothing design of the Kia Seltos?
