Alternatives

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.

  • Decent performance
  • Generous kit
