Ownership cost

What used Hyundai Kona hatchback will I get for my budget?

At the time of writing, prices for an early Hyundai Kona start at £13,000 for a 2017 1.0-litre S model with less than 10,000 miles on it. However, if you increase your budget by £500, you can find plenty of better equipped SE examples.

Head further up the range to Premium for £15,000, while Premium SE is more like £17,000. Top of the range four-wheel drive Premium GT models are relatively rare on the used market and command a premium over lesser two-wheel drive versions, so be prepared to spend at least £21,000 or more.

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai Kona hatchback?

If you want the cheapest Kona to run, head straight for a diesel, provided you do enough miles to justify it. The best is the 113bhp manual with a combined NEDC figure of 67.3mpg, but the more powerful 134bhp automatic isn’t far off that, at 64.2mpg.

The popular 118bhp 1.0-litre petrol achieves a figure of 50.4mpg, but the top-of-the-range 175bhp 1.6-litre petrol is a bit too costly to run, with an average of 40.4mpg. This is likely due to the four-wheel-drive system and standard automatic gearbox.

Insurance costs will be similar to rivals', and Hyundai has one of the longest standard warranties available at five years and unlimited miles. Servicing cost will be comparable with rivals’, but certain jobs can be costly – for example, regassing the air conditioning, because Hyundai uses a more environmentally friendly refrigerant gas that isn't widely available at third-party garages yet.
