“Wilfully odd-looking small SUV is actually fun to drive. It's the Nissan Juke's worthy heir ”

PROS
Refined mild-hybrid powertrain,
and handles better than it strictly needs to

CONS
Hybrid gets expensive.
Looks weird (even weirder than before) but then you might like that

By:

The hybrid version has low CO2 emissions on its side, but otherwise the Kona is outclassed by the many other small SUVs available to choose from at this price. The Ford Puma is more fun, the T-Roc more comfortable and the Skoda Kamiq more practical.

PROS
Low CO2 emissions (Hybrid)
Generous standard kit
Good infotainment system

CONS
Bumpy ride
Not very practical
So-so performance of the 1.0 T-GDi
