Review

With decent performance, palatable running costs and an easy-to-use infotainment system, the Kona range has a lot in its favour. However, while the Kona Electric impresses with its hot-hatch acceleration and competitive range between charges, the petrol-engined models are shown up by the hybrid’s lower running costs. Rival small SUVs have more interior space, too, so the Kona struggles to stand out in its class.

get the best price

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.
