Trying to decide between the 2020 Jeep Renegade and Hyundai Kona? Then, you've come to the right place!

Our team at Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) of Harford County is here to compare the Renegade vs. Kona to help spirited Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen, MD, drivers find the right crossover for their bold drives.

Interior Dimensions of the Renegade and Kona

One of the main reasons you may be choosing a crossover for your next ride is for more interior space. Inside these vehicles, you'll find the following cabin measurements for you to stretch out in…

Jeep Renegade

  • Front headroom: 41.1 inches
  • Rear headroom: 40.5 inches
  • Front legroom: 41.2 inches
  • Rear legroom: 35.1 inches

Hyundai Kona

  • Front headroom: 39.6 inches
  • Rear headroom: 37.8 inches
  • Front legroom: 41.5 inches
  • Rear legroom: 34.6 inches

As you can see, the 2020 Renegade and Kona offer similar front legroom. However, if you're looking for more space overall for you and your passengers, you'll probably prefer the Renegade.

Additionally, the Renegade offers a maximum 50.8 cubic feet for you to stow weekend bags and daypacks into. It may be a tighter fit in the Kona, though, since it only provides a maximum 45.8 cubic feet of cargo room.

2020 Jeep Renegade vs Hyundai Kona: Engine Specs

When you're gearing up for your next adventure, you're probably also looking for a road trip-ready SUV with a bold performance.

The 2020 Jeep Renegade hits the mark with a standard 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir® I-4 engine delivering 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque to take you over hills and through mud.

You'll notice a difference in performance with the Hyundai Kona, though, since its baseline motor only provides 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. A 175-horsepower motor is available; however, it still doesn't measure up to the power output of the Renegade.

The extra muscle of the Renegade allows it to haul a maximum 2,000 pounds, when properly equipped-perfect for towing the following:

  • A pop-up tent trailer for solo camping trips
  • A small aluminum boat for relaxing weekends on the water
  • A lightly loaded utility trailer with supplies for home-improvement projects

Unfortunately, it's not recommended you tow any of these items with the Kona, so you'll have to leave them behind on your next road trip.

Stay Protected

Nothing is more important than venturing with confidence, so the 2020 Jeep Renegade and Hyundai Kona offer the following technologies:

  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
  • Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Path Detection

If you're looking for more protected parking, as well, opt for the Parallel and Perpendicular Park and Unpark Assist System in the Renegade. It seamlessly steers you into parking spaces while you focus on switching gears and accelerating.

The Kona does offer Parking Distance Warning. However, it's not as advanced and will not steer your crossover for you.
