Decent engines and infotainment, but the Kona fails to stand out in the small SUV class. The Hybrid is more promising for business users, though.

Trim: Play Edition

Engine: 1.0T GDi

You might imagine that a dinky 1.0-litre petrol engine would struggle to haul around an SUV, but remember that the Kona has a smaller footprint than a VW Golf. Outright acceleration is more than acceptable (0-60mph took 10.4sec in our tests) and, thanks to relatively short gearing, the Kona even picks up speed reasonably swiftly when you accelerate from low revs in the higher gears.
