Why Lease A Hyundai Kona?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The Kona isn’t the most spacious car of this type, but neither is it particularly cramped. Taller adults will find rear headroom gets a bit tight, and there’s less space than in the Ford Puma, Volkswagen’s T-Roc or the Kia E-Niro.
The boot is average, at 374 litres, although unlike some rivals, the hybrid model doesn’t lose any luggage space. The Kona Electric’s boot is a bit tighter, at 332 litres, and is outshone by the 451 litres you get in an E-Niro. You can fold the rear seats down on all models, though, which opens up room for larger items.
There are plenty of homes for odds and ends, with a pair of cupholders, a cubby hole in front of the gearstick and a big storage box under the centre armrest. The door pockets could do with being a bit larger, though. The Kona Electric gets a large storage tray under the centre console.
You’ll get the cheapest running costs in the Kona Electric, because recharging the battery will be considerably less expensive than refuelling with petrol. How you charge it will affect the costs. Home charging is the most affordable method, especially if you can charge overnight with an off-peak tariff. A 7kWh home wall box will fill the electric from 10% to 100% in slightly more than 9 hours for the 64kWh battery and 6 for the 39kwH model. A 100kW public fast charger will top up either to 80% in 47 minutes.
The petrol model promises up to 47.1mpg, which is similar to most rivals. The Hybrid model will give you up to 57.6mpg, but will be more efficient around town, where it can regenerate energy under braking to reuse later.
Hyundai KonaThe standard 5-door Kona comes with a single 1.0-litre petrol engine.
Hyundai Kona HybridThe Kona Hybrid is virtually the same in terms of space and design, but comes with both a petrol engine and an electric motor.
Hyundai Kona ElectricThe Kona Electric has a revised front-end look and a slightly different cabin, and loses a bit of boot space.
The Hyundai Kona Vs Competitors
Yes, although there are better rivals on the market. The most attractive model is the Kona Electric, which is more accomplished against its competitors than the standard Hyundai is compared to its peers.
That depends what you’re after. The Tucson is bigger than the Kona, so will be more practical for passengers and luggage. But it’ll also be more expensive to lease and will also use more fuel. There’s no electric Tucson model, either.
The Kona’s rivals are many and include the [Ford Puma](https://www.vanarama.com/car-leasing/ford/puma), [Skoda’s Kamiq](https://www.vanarama.com/car-leasing/skoda/kamiq) and Enyaq, the [Audi Q2](https://www.vanarama.com/car-leasing/audi/q2) and the [Toyota C-HR](https://www.vanarama.com/car-leasing/toyota/c-hr), as well as the [MG ZS](https://www.vanarama.com/car-leasing/mg-motor-uk/zs) EV, [Kia E-Niro](https://www.vanarama.com/car-leasing/kia/e-niro) and Volkswagen ID.4.
Yes, if you go for a leasing deal on the Kona Electric model. The Kona Hybrid is a ‘self-charging’ hybrid that can travel small distances on electric power, but you can’t plug it in to recharge. The regular Kona uses mild-hybrid technology, which means it can’t drive on electric power alone.
No, all versions of the Kona Electric are front-wheel drive.
The Kona is unlikely to be particularly good in snow, as it doesn’t have 4-wheel drive or any snow-specific terrain settings.
