New Hyundai Kona & Volkswagen T-Roc vs Seat Arona

Used Hyundai Kona 2017-present review

Alternatives

Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Hyundai Kona hatchback?

For one of the best all-rounders in the small SUV class, have a look at a Seat Arona. It has a large boot for the class, most models are fitted with an impressive infotainment system and it has tidy handling with a sweet little turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engine that manages decent fuel economy.

The Volkswagen T-Roc is pricier than the Kona, but it's one of the best-handling small SUVs. Its interior quality is disappointing, but it is spacious and well equipped.

If you like a long warranty, the Kia Stonic is also worth considering. Based on similar underpinnings to the Kona, the Stonic is good to drive and has plenty of gadgets fitted as standard.
