Review

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

Mid-spec Premium gets you 18in alloys, climate control, keyless entry and start, as well as wireless smartphone charging, but it’s a fairly big jump in price from SE.
