For 2020, Hyundai's Kona subcompact crossover gains adaptive cruise control on the top-of-the-line Ultimate trim. Last year's Tech Package contents are added to the new SEL Plus trim, which also gets a 4.2-in multi-information color display and wireless phone charging. The Iron Man Edition has been discontinued.

When considering price, content and options, we think the SEL Plus is the way to go. No doubt the turbo is more fun to drive, so if you go that route, go big and get the Ultimate. Find a Hyundai Kona for sale

2020 Subaru Crosstrek -- With its standard AWD, the Crosstrek is a smart pick for anyone with an eye on some outback adventure. Solid fuel economy and a roomy cabin are big pluses.
2020 Jeep Renegade -- The most off-road-capable of the Kona's competitors, the Renegade, when properly equipped, can take on terrain that most in this class would need to detour around. People love or hate its styling but the Jeep DNA is apparent.
2020 Mazda CX-3 -- Great styling, solid mileage and athletic driving dynamics make the CX-3 a must-see for shoppers in this segment. There's plenty of technology, too.
2020 Toyota C-HR -- If the Kona's looks aren't far enough out there for you and you don't want AWD, the C-HR is a good place to begin your search. With its quirky styling, loads of safety tech and decent fuel economy, it's like the Venza reflected in a funhouse mirror.
Used Hyundai Santa Fe Sport -- A 2014-2017 Santa Fe Sport will give you a lot more interior room, horsepower and features. Plus, if you buy a certified pre-owned model, Hyundai reinstates the duration of the original 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
