Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

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

If you like the way the Kona looks, then by all means go ahead. People buy on style more than anything else in this segment, so it’s almost incidental that the Kona is a reasonably well-sorted thing underneath. It doesn’t excel in any one area, but it doesn’t insult either.

If on the other hand, you don’t like the way it looks, don’t worry. There are shedloads of other little SUVs vying for your wallet, and they’re all broadly as good as this one. Worth bearing in mind there are more practical family cars for the money, too. But we like the Kona for trying as hard in the handling department as in the styling studio, and rising above the droves of humdrum rival crossovers.
