Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The driving position in the Hyundai Kona N is surprisingly low for an SUV, but that’s also true of the almost hatchback-like Cupra Formentor. That’s good for the sporty feel of the car, but if you want a higher-riding SUV, the more expensive Cupra Ateca is worth trying. 

Seeing out of the front and side of the Kona N isn't too difficult because of its relatively thin pillars and tall windows. That's really helpful when you're pulling out of T-junctions and on to roundabouts.

Overall, the interior is a step up from the cheaper Ford Puma ST but not quite as plush as a similarly specced Formentor.

The Kona N's 10.3in touchscreen infotainment system is mounted high up on the dashboard, making it easy to see and reach. It’s responsive, the graphics are crisp and the menus are easy to navigate.

The system includes built-in sat-nav and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring (so you can use your phone apps on the touchscreen). You also get wireless phone-charging and a head-up display.
