2020 Qashqai VS. Hyundai Kona VS. Honda HR-V
Today, the game of comparison allows us to better highlight a vehicle's characteristics while allowing us to make a logical choice when acquiring a new SUV, for example. This blog tries to shed some light on the 2020 Nissan Qashqai by bringing it closer to the Hyundai Kona and the Honda HR-V.
L'Ami Junior Nissan in Saguenay is a proud dealer of the Japanese Nissan brand. Since it offers the full range of Nissan products on the market, L'Ami Junior Nissan tries to highlight these vehicles; here it focuses on its award-winning SUV, highlighted by “Le Guide de l'auto 2020” and “L'Annuel de l'automobile 2020”: the 2020 Qashqai.
The Three-way Game
For starters, on the styling front, the Nissan Qashqai has a sportier look thanks to 19-inch all-black alloys, smoked headlights and taillights, as well as a blackened front grille treatment and glossy black mirror caps. Already, it's more appealing than its two rivals, which boast a more one-dimensional look.
Inside, the 2020 Nissan Qashqai crossover's high-end interior features PVC/Alcantara-trimmed seats, soft-touch materials, high-gloss black vents and a black roof. Down to the last detail, the Japanese designers wanted to provide a quality foundation for their award-winning SUV. What's more, the 2020 Qashqai features a centre screen with standard NissanConnect infotainment system, including Apple CarPlay™ integration, Android Auto™ and much more. Similar features are also available on the Hyundai Kona and Honda HR-V.
In addition to being more dynamic, the Qashqai SUV is also smarter than its rivals because it benefits from many advanced technologies that come standard, like the ProPilot driver assistance system that monitors highway driving, helps keep the vehicle in the lane, regulates speed and manages traffic jams.
In addition, there's the intelligent Parking Assist automated parking function, which uses advanced sensors to identify a suitable parking space and then performs the manoeuvre autonomously. The Kona and HR-V do not offer as much functionality as the 2020 Qashqai.
Under the hood, the Nissan SUV can count on a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine with 141 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. The Kona develops 147 horsepower (+6) and 132 lb-ft of torque (-15). As for the Honda HR-V, it has 141 horsepower (equal) and 127 lb-ft of torque (-20). All in all, the fact is that the Nissan Qashqai is more powerful and efficient than its rivals.
But what makes the Nissan Qashqai even more different from the 2020 Hyundai Kona and the Honda HR-V is its price. All comparisons show that the Nissan Qashqai is less expensive than its competitors. In fact, there are big differences between the more elaborate versions of the 2020 Qashqai and the Kona. Not only is the former more economical, it offers much more than its competitors. Its price is very attractive, it has several advanced safety technologies and it has a very good cargo capacity in the trunk.
Since the arrival of the Qashqai in North America, sales of this SUV have only increased. Nissan's executives have seen right and understood exactly the Canadian and Quebec market. How do you explain this success: a practical and spacious format, access to all-wheel drive at a lower cost and a lower price than the 2020 Kona and HR-V, to put it mildly. The Qashqai fits perfectly into the SUV category, and by buying it you get the best of both worlds: quality and low price.
