Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric is hard to find in some U.S. markets, but it's one of the best affordable long-range electric vehicles.

PROS
Fun to drive
Strong active safety tech
Range rating of 258 miles
Possibly around $30k after incentives
Excellent feature set

CONS
All-wheel drive isn’t an option
Busy styling
Difficult availability

Hyundai has made exactly zero changes to the Kona Electric for the 2021 model year.We'd recommend the mid-range Limited. It adds a host of desirable features, including a sunroof, leather upholstery, LED exterior lighting, automatic high-beam headlamps, a wireless smartphone-charging pad, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

PROS
Playful handling,
long driving range,
fantastic standard warranty.

CONS
Small back seat,
front-wheel drive only,
cold temperatures sap battery capacity.

Comfortable and quiet cabin
Plenty of standard tech features

CONS
Tight rear legroom
Availability limited to a handful of states

PROS
Larger boot than standard Tivoli
Smarter new front bumper
Huge standard specification
Manual or auto, two- and four-wheel drive

CONS
No petrol engine
Same passenger space as Tivoli
Not a thrilling drive
Diesel engine quite noisy

By:

The Ssangyong Tivoli XLV offers good space and practicality to families on a budget. However, if you can afford to spend a little more, there are much more competent family SUVs available.

Pros
Spacious interior
Generous standard equipment
Competitively priced

Cons
Noisy engine
Crashy ride
Stodgy handling

By: 
whatcar.com

The SsangYong Tivoli XLV takes the stylish Tivoli and makes it bigger. It looks a bit more awkward than before, but it’s also more practical.

PROS
Extremely versatile
Generous warranty
Good value

CONS
Noisy engines
Challenging styling
Not the most economical
