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

SE trim gets an impressive 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system, as well as 17in alloys, LED daytime running lights, automatic headlights, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera. It’s the best-value trim and our pick of the range.
