Our overall rating:
It’s fair to say What Car? is looking more like What Small SUV? of late. The British public can't get enough of them and car manufacturers are only too happy to jack up the traditional hatchback in search of sales.
The Hyundai Kona fits the brief perfectly. Although it doesn’t look like one, it’s best to think of it as a raised i20, Hyundai’s small car. That makes it very much a small SUV and a rival to models such as the Kia Stonic, Seat Arona and Citroën C3 Aircross.
The cheaper version is powered by a 118bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol engine and have a six-speed manual gearbox, but there's also a 175bhp turbocharged 1.6 petrol with a seven-speed auto 'box and four-wheel drive.
So has Hyundai done enough with the Kona to lead the small SUV charge? And which engine and trim makes the most sense? Read our full review to find out.
