The Hyundai Kona is a new compact SUV coming to Europe this autumn.
It is targetted at the Nissan Qashqai and Renault Captur and precedes other models in the new crossover sector that the Korean manufacturer intends to launch over the next few years.
The UK is said to be the first area in Europe where Amazon is considering selling cars on-line, according to a report in Automotive News Europe.
It has deals to sell cars on line for particular brands in some parts of the world but the European operation, if true, is said to be based in Luxembourg and could be either new or used models, or both.
The price tag of used cars sits well down the list of priorities when drivers are on the hunt for a new motor.
Safety (25%), the car’s condition (23%) and trust in the dealer (14%) all trump the necessity of an affordable price tag (12%) – perhaps indicating that despite concerns over rising inflation, drivers are drawn more to reliability and trustworthy dealers than to saving the pennies, according to the AA-Populus poll, which canvassed 18,077 AA members.
