The hybrid version has low CO2 emissions on its side, but otherwise the Kona is outclassed by the many other small SUVs available to choose from at this price. The Ford Puma is more fun, the T-Roc more comfortable and the Skoda Kamiq more practical.

Stick to entry-level SE Connect trim because, as well as keeping the price down, you relatively small alloy wheels to stop the ride from becoming too uncomfortable. You also get air-conditioning (climate control with the Hybrid), dusk-sensing headlights and cruise control, as well rear parking sensors and an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system.
