Hyundai Kona

The Hyundai Kona arrived in Australia near the end of 2017, as a challenger to popular small SUVs such as Mazda's CX-3. At a compact 4.2-metres long, it's very much a light car with an elevated ride height, and stands out from the crowd with bold sporty styling. 

The Kona's cabin is a little more austere but has the latest phone mirroring tech, and while it's hardly a family car it'll happily carry two kids in the back. The Hyundai Kona's boot is a respectable 360 litres, about the same as a VW Golf

There are two drivetrains to choose from: a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine with six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, or a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol matched to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive. There's also a long-range Electric version with a 64kWh battery. 

The latter is actually quite a punchy little thing, with credentials heightened by independent rear suspension and calibration tested in Australia, for local conditions.
