Subcompact: Hyundai Kona

The subcompact 2020 Kona is the whole package: Striking looks, engaging driving dynamics, and a comfortable cabin. A pair of four-cylinder engines are available, the best of which is the turbocharged 1.6-liter that provides brisk acceleration and good fuel economy. Its exterior turns heads, even two years after its introduction, but its cabin is more muted and feels grownup in both its design and execution. Cargo space will be adequate for most buyers but those seeking space for bulky items may be better served by one of the Kona's slightly larger rivals.
