Jack reviews the Kona vs the Ioniq 5 to see if there really is a Hyundai option for everyone in this new episode.
The Ioniq 5 is one of the best new cars of the year, and one of the best family cars on sale today – electric or otherwise. But it does pose a slightly awkward question: does it render its sibling, the Kona, slightly redundant? Is there still a place for the Kona in an Ioniq world, and if so, where? In this video we compare the two cars and look to understand the unique use case for each.
