The Hyundai KONA won the Best Small Car award at the annual Scottish Car of the Year awards.
The KONA triumphed in a highly competitive category against the likes of the VW Polo, Ford EcoSport, SEAT Arona, Kia Stonic and Citroen Aircross.  Members of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW) praised the KONA’s style, economy and practicality combined with the security of a five-year warranty.
The Small Car category was the toughest of all to judge this year with so many diverse new products arriving on the market. We selected the Hyundai KONA because of its all-round package – it’s spacious, practical, a great drive and its style certainly stands out from the crowd.

John Murdoch President of the ASMW

We are delighted to receive this award from the Association. The KONA range continues to evolve with the addition of our latest powertrain technology now including a powerful and efficient diesel engine as well as an all-electric model. This choice combined with its style, practicality and high level of safety and driver assistance features ensures a strong presence for KONA in what is a highly competitive marketplace.
