Some other similarities between these two vehicles are that they both have Day Time Running Lights, Anti-theft protection, rear park assist, electronic brake distribution, an interior touch screen display, and steering wheel mounted remote audio controls. These vehicles are quite similar, but knowing that does not help you make a purchasing choice. That is why we are going to switch gears and focus on their differences now.

As for how they differ, the 2019 Hyundai Kona Essential has dusk sensing headlights, side mirror indicator lights on the driver and passenger mirrors, underbody protection, more speakers in the cabin, standard iPod or iPhone connection in the front seating area, an overhead console storage, and driver selectable modes. The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek does not have any of these features. The driver selectable modes that the 2019 Hyundai Kona has include engine mapping driver mode, stability control driver mode, steering driver mode, and traction control driver mode. That covers pretty much the main variances between the 2019 Hyundai Kona and the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. Of course, there are also smaller differences in their design such as the shape and location of headlights which is why we recommend coming into Kelowna Hyundai to view our Kona inventory.
