Exactly how much you'll have to spend on your Kona will depend on whether you go for petrol, hybrid or electric power, and which trim level you opt for. Broadly speaking though, the Kona is competitively priced against its rivals, which are plentiful and include the Nissan Juke
, Renault Captur
, Seat Arona
and plenty more. It's not spectacularly cheap, and doesn't have amazing resale value, but it doesn't disgrace itself either. Basically, it sits in the middle of the competition when it comes to cost.
The hybrid version
does, however, look good value against the equivalent Toyota C-HR Hybrid
, though expect increased competition as more manufacturers offer hybrid versions of their popular SUVs and crossovers. All cars of this type attract considerable tax incentives for company drivers
, which is worth factoring into your monthly costs if Benefit In Kind
is a factor. There’s a pure EV version too – the Kona Electric
– attracting a government grant to offset the higher purchase price. With demand for the electric version far outstripping supply, it'll likely hold onto its value well too.
