Demand for small SUVs is soaring and the Kona is a stand-out product in what is currently the most hotly-contested segment.
The addition of affordable all-electric versions won it favour among judges, as did its striking looks and low running costs.
Fleet customers can choose from a range of frugal diesel and petrol engines, plus two electric models.
With a range of up to 279 miles, the Kona Electric 64kWh is the first affordable electric car that could be considered by higher mileage fleet drivers.
Specification levels are high across the range, with a number of features usually reserved for larger luxury cars available; including ventilated seats and a head-up display.
The Kona’s compact and robust exterior houses a spacious interior and generous boot, while driveability is among its top attributes.
Four-wheel drive is optionally available for those that need it, making the Kona range one the most flexible in the sector.
