2020 Kicks vs 2020 Kona - Fuel Economy

When searching for a new car, efficiency typically plays largely into your decision. After all, no one likes spending more time than they need to at the gas station. Luckily, both the Kicks and the Kona present a solid fuel economy behind the wheel. However, one does come out on top.

Because of the standard configuration under the hood, including a 6-speed automatic transmission, the Hyundai Kona has an estimated fuel economy of 27 city/33 highway/30 combined MPG.

On the other hand, the Nissan Kicks incorporates the Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission). Because of the advanced technology, the Kicks has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 31 city/36 highway/33 combined MPG that gives you more mileage for your buck when filling up.*

Nissan Kicks vs Hyundai Kona - Interior Space

SUVs are known for their spacious cabins, and the Kicks and the Kona deliver. However, one might leave you wanting a little more room for your passengers.

The 2020 Kicks can seat up to five passengers inside very comfortably. In this generous space, front passengers will receive up to 40.7 inches of headroom and 43.7 inches of legroom. Passengers in the back seat can also get cozy with 38.5 inches of headroom.

The 2020 Kona can also seat up to five passengers, but there's less space for them to stretch out. The front seats only provide 39.6 inches of headroom and the legroom measures in a bit short at just 41.5 inches. The back-row headroom is also smaller, coming in at just 37.8 inches.

2020 Kona vs 2020 Kicks - Cargo Room

When it comes to transporting your belongings, the Nissan Kicks also comes out on top. While the Nissan model offers 25.3 cubic feet when all the seats are upright, the Kona gives you quite less cargo room with 19.2 cubic feet. This means the Kicks is ready for more extended grocery trips-and maybe even that small piece of furniture you've been eying.

The professionals at Fred Beans Nissan of Flemington think both crossovers are fine for your Flemington, Rowland Mills, and East Amwell Township commutes. However, with better fuel economy as well as more space inside, we think you're going to love the 2020 Nissan Kicks.
