The 64kWh version of the Hyundai Kona Electric has a fantastic real-world range between charges, plus it’s quick and well-equipped. However, excellent rivals including the Kia e-Niro and Volkswagen ID.3 are better all-rounders thanks to their superior ride comfort and more practical interiors.

The Kona N comes as standard with 19in alloy wheels, electronically controlled bucket seats, LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, heated door mirrors, heated steering wheel, keyless entry, 10.3in digital driver display, 10.3in touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, built-in sat nav and wireless phone-charging.

The Kona N’s 2.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine creates 276bhp and plenty of shove. Hyundai says that takes it from 0-62mph in just 5.5seconds and it certainly feels like it. It’s not quite as responsive as the Puma ST’s engine low down, with a moment of lag (while the turbocharger starts to spin up) when you put your foot down, but feels faster when it comes alive. By 3,000rpm it is really pushing you into your seat.
