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.

Trim: Premium GT

Premium GT is only available with the range-topping 1.6 petrol engine and gets a safety pack as standard that brings automatic emergency braking, a head-up display and full LED headlights with high-beam assist. It's too pricey to recommend, though.

Engine: 1.6T GDi Blue Drive

If you want more performance, there's always this 175bhp 1.6-litre turbo. This version of the Kona gets four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox as standard and can crack 62mph from a standstill in less than eight seconds. It's too pricey to recommend, though.
