Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Hyundai Kona hatchback?

While it's extremely unlikely, some models of Kona are fitted with four-wheel drive and therefore may have been taken off road. Have a look under the car for any bits of broken plastic cladding that could indicate some action. SE Konas and above get rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera to help with parking, but make sure that the wheels haven’t been heavily kerbed and that there aren’t any deep scratches in the plastic body cladding or paintwork.   

The seats in some Konas have lighter colour fabric inserts on the seats that could show up some stains, and there are lots of hard plastics that might be susceptible to being damaged.
