A start­ing price of $24,500 will power the Hyundai Kona when it hits show­rooms next week as a ri­val to the Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V in the com­pact SUV class. Hyundai Au­to­mo­tive is not pre­dict­ing mas­sive sales at first, as de­mand from Europe is four times the com­pany’s fore­cast, al­though it hopes to chal­lenge for class lead­er­ship when more Konas are avail­able in the sec­ond half of 2018.


The two ba­sic ver­sions of the Honda Jazz will be $2000 bet­ter value un­til at least the end of the year un­der a drive-away deal that ap­plies to all cars built in 2017. The Jazz deal puts the VTi man­ual at $15,990 on the road and the VTi auto at $17,990. Honda in­tro­duced a five-year/ un­lim­ited km war­ranty for its en­tire line-up in July.
