The Kona (named after a district of Hawaii) counts in the first place on its strong silhouette, also taking advantage of an advantageous size. This size has also allowed us to note that the Kona suspension adjustment is, to say the least, firm. How is this SUV going to be noticed in this category that is more and more congested? Well, as soon as the potholes and other bumps are encountered, we then immediately feel a beneficial type of damping. As long as the asphalt is of good quality, it is also a treat to drive, the Korean being very agile, especially as the small engine does not weigh down the nose.


This SUV also provides more powerful engines than those of the Kia Stonic. If we place the SUV frontally against rivals, it measures up very well. In addition to a 1.6 turbo that will represent a tiny share of sales (associated exclusively with a dual-clutch gearbox and an AWD), the SUV is currently available with a three-cylinder 1.0 turbo and a six-speed manual gearbox. Also, remember that this SUV is entitled to a warranty with unlimited mileage, which does not exist elsewhere. Also, this SUV has more than its competitors on the first level of finish and is very well equipped.


Comfort, therefore, appears as a priority with this SUV. The sound characteristic of this SUV is never invasive, and the vibrations are well mastered, allowing flexible driving even in town. The suspension is firm, the steering is light but precise, and it is all pleasant and approaches the comfort/handling compromise you need. On the road as on the drawing board, the Kona prides itself on dynamism. If you want more comfort, you will have no choice: you will have to go up one level of finish. Bumps in the road do not manage to bother a driver of this SUV, with the presence of wheels that are 18 inches on the high end. No negatives can be found, and the start-stop system is easy to use. Therefore this SUV is discreet and responsive.
