When it comes to performance, interior space, and safety, two SUVs prove to be impressive. The Honda CR-V and Hyundai Kona are taking the San Antonio, Schertz, and Alamo Heights, Texas, areas by storm and we know you want to get behind the wheel too.

To help you choose which SUV is better for your needs, the team at Northside Honda has created this 2020 Honda CR-V vs. Hyundai Kona comparison. Below, we’ll compare these models side by side when it comes to their performance, interior room, and safety systems.

2020 Honda CR-V Engine Specs

2020 CR-V vs 2020 Kona: Performance

Lively and ready for action, a new Honda CR-V rules the roadways with its 1.5L turbocharged engine. This base engine delivers up to 190 horsepower for precise and exhilarating acceleration and 179 lb-ft of torque for the strength you need to prove you’re in charge.

If you’re looking for something a little lighter with an elevated efficiency, a hybrid configuration is also available for the CR-V, allowing you to skip visiting the pump more often.

The Hyundai Kona is still a blast to drive, but it lacks the turbocharged capabilities found in its 2.0L 4-cylinder powertrain. This results in less horsepower (147) and less torque (132 lb-ft), giving you a not-as-spirited drive. Plus, there is no hybrid engine available for this model.

2020 Honda CR-V Cargo Space

CR-V vs Kona: Interior Space

If you’re looking for plenty of room for both passengers and cargo, the 2020 Honda CR-V may be your best bet. While both of their interiors offer a generously spacious cabin, the Honda pulls through with more headroom and legroom as well as extra cargo room. See for yourself:

Rear Headroom

As you can see, not only will your passengers be able to spread out more in the CR-V, but you’ll be able to pack up the cargo much more as well.

2020 Honda CR-V

Honda vs Hyundai: Safety

Both SUVs fare well when it comes to safety, offering a plethora of active and passive features that keep you, your travel companions, and the vehicle more secure on the road. Plus, each of these SUVs also comes standard with a suite of advanced driver-assistive technologies.

In the 2020 Hyundai Kona, you’ll find Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, and other driving aids on every trim. These systems help boost your confidence and assurance.

On the other hand, the Honda CR-V takes their confidence-boosting driving aids to the next level. Along with Lane Keeping Assist and Forward Collision Warning systems similar to the Kona, you’ll have even more standard driver-assistive technologies on your side:

  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
  • Automatic High-Beam Headlights

2020 Honda CR-V vs Hyundai Kona: Which Is Right for You?

For your drives in the San Antonio, Schertz, and Alamo Heights, TX, areas, either of these SUVs will get you where you need to go. However, if you want to travel in a highly spacious cabin with tons of driving aids and a strong performance on your side, then you’ll love the 2020 Honda CR-V.
