Looking for an affordable, sporty, and functional new vehicle for your active lifestyle near Fort McMurray? Chances are you’ve run across the 2019 Mazda CX-3 while doing your research – and you’ve likely heard the excitement building around the new 2020 Hyundai Kona. The 2019 Hyundai Kona review aggregates were a near-universal slam dunk among critics and drivers, but how does the new 2020 model stack up to the CX-3, one of its closest competitors in the previous model year? River City Hyundai has done the research to show you how Hyundai Kona vs. Mazda CX-3 stack up head-to-head.

Hyundai Kona vs. Mazda CX-3: MSRP

From the outside, it’s hard to deny how similar the 2020 Kona and the CX-3 seem to be, but the Hyundai Kona price has a slight edge on CX-3. The 2020 Kona has an MSRP at $21,190, while the Mazda rings in at $23,071 at the base level, despite nearly identical engines, performance, and interior amenities. The 2020 Hyundai Kona comes with a standard 2.4L I-4 engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission, and a FWD drivetrain. The CX-3 does too, but you’ll pay slightly more for it.

Hyundai Kona vs. Mazda CX-3: Interior Dimensions

So, where is the difference most notable between the Kona and CX-3? You’ll notice it once you climb into the cabin. Look at the Hyundai Kona specs and you’ll see why Cold Lake drivers who have already chosen Kona have usually done so to avoid the nearly 200-litre loss in cargo volume that comes with the CX-3 – which means leaving a large piece of luggage at home en route to the airport – and a 170+ litre loss in passenger volume. The 2020 Kona also offers more hip room and shoulder room.

Hyundai Kona vs. Mazda CX-3: Safety Features

The 2020 Hyundai Kona has already earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ designation, the highest and likely most significant achievement among safety qualifications. You’ll find a number of driver-assistance features with this new vehicle, including emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and a driver-attention monitor as standard features. The 2019 CX-3 performed well in many IIHS tests too, but it only achieved an “acceptable” rating when it came to its overall rating.
