Quick Take: 2018 Hyundai Kona

Surprisingly, the Kona is smaller than almost every rival, at just 4165mm long and 1800mm wide, on a 2600mm wheelbase. The boot is a respectable 360 litres, expanding to 1143L with the back seats folded.

As flagged earlier there are two drivetrain combinations available: a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated MPi petrol engine with six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive (FWD), or a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol matched to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive (AWD).

Both versions get a Drive Mode Select system with Comfort, Eco and Sport modes that change the throttle mapping, gearbox shift points and level of motor-driven steering resistance.

The base unit oddly runs a hybrid-style Atkinson Cycle, makes 110kW of power and 180Nm of torque (at 4500rpm), and uses a claimed 7.2L/100km of fuel. It’s fine for the class, given the C-HR’s 1.2 turbo makes 85kW/185Nm, albeit lacking low down torque. The six-speed auto is way more engaging than a dreaded CVT, too.
