Not sure what the USA statistic has to do with anything. Americans aren't exactly world-class for making good decisions. But whatever.

I drive manual because I prefer manual. I feel more in control of the car. Not because I'm a "cheapskate". Modern auto boxes, especially CVT are notorious for failing early. They also require additional maintenance as part of the service schedule.

Americans traditionally had automatics because fuel was cheaper, hence economy wasn't an issue, same reason that they shoved massive V8 engines into huge family saloon cars which had interesting fins. The technology was actually very primitive though, that's the reason the US car industry has been in terminal decline. Why Detroit has gone from massively prosperous to derelict in a few decades.

Agree. For me my list of essential features are:

Climate control
Steering wheel
See-thru windscreen

In that order

I'm sorry I wasn't having a knock, just that seems to be the trend these days is more interest in the stereo than what the car will do. I see you've added more specs, Thank you
Great offer and thanks for posting.

Wonder why Hyundai own Kia but Kia give a 7 year warranty and Hyundai only 5 years?

I have a Santa Fe just now and really like it. Quite basic but does the job for me. I can't wait for the snow so i can drive past everyone using my 4 wheel drive
I had a Hyundai Tucson , loved it and wanted the Kona but husband wanted a Range Rover Velar which I absolutely detest to the point that I’m considering giving up driving when he retires . I’d bloody love a Kona

Lotta car for the cash, hot from me.

Who earns the most money gets to choose!
Have a Jon’s on a lease deal, list price was £19500, it is definitely not worth that, would pay about £13000 for one if I was purchasing it, not a bad ace, quite stylish, engine is a bit rough sounding but goes quite well, mpg about 30 to the gallon.
Does the 1.0 litre engine have enough poke to accelerate this up a hill? Genuine question.
Or is this just another "school run" car?

When I bought my Kia, Hyundai did a 5 year breakdown cover, but Kia only 1 year, (presume it's still the same) and there are subtle differences in spec at the equivalent model level, so they are building the cost in one way or another.

Anyone got one that would recommend ?
Not the electric version?
Had one of these as a hire car recently in Spain and was really impressed - same model I think so definitely a good deal!
My dad has the top of the range 4x4 version of this. It’s a great car but the only downside is the cheap plastic interior, no soft plastics.
looked good value until I read; It’s the three-cylinder 118bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine.entry engine in the Kona range and comes with a five-speed manual gearbox only............

With the Germans you pay for a name, that's all. My 318D SE 'special edition' model doesn't have a rear screen wiper or folding mirrors, both of which I miss sorely from my previous Mondeo Mk4 which also had a heated front screen, and was about 60% of the BMW's price!!
German never again. The value for money proposition is shocking.

The auto version of this car still has the same warranty.

So? That doesn't mean it can't fail within that period. It's a particularly important factor for those who want to keep the car beyond the 5yr warranty.

Rubbish!
I would agree about "old" auto boxes. I had a few over the years but had a very expensive experience with a Jaguar XJ8 with a German built auto box which failed terminally and ended up making this prestige vehicle uneconomical to repair. Remember the problems with the nicosil cylinder lining that dissolved with fuel used at the time with high sulphur contents. Argh those were the days!!
I've got a bigger engine in me lawn mower.

My Kona has it, it's ok as standard but no way I'd pay extra for it, it's a weird thing when you feel it trying to steer you back into the lane if you've no indicator on, feels like a puncture.
