With decent performance, palatable running costs and an easy-to-use infotainment system, the Kona range has much in its favour.

Rival small SUVs have more interior space, too, so the Kona struggles to stand out in its class.
Trim: Premium SE
Premium SE adds extra safety kit, such as blindspot detection and rear cross-traffic alert, a head-up display and heated seats on top of everything you get on Premium trim.
