Hyundai Kona

(2017 - present)

The Hyundai Kona is a small SUV/crossover that was launched in 2017. It shares its platform with the Kia Stonic.

The Kona is currently available with a choice of petrol and hybrid power, with the diesel models being dropped in 2019. Hyundai also sells the Kona Electric, which we have covered in a separate report as it is substantially different from this regular model.

The Hyundai Kona has received mostly average to good reviews from the UK motoring media, with very consistent scores from different sources. It has received praise for its value for money and decent specification, but criticism for its driving dynamics and overall quality compared to rivals.
