I’m officially a Kona Owner today. Though I paid for it almost two weeks ago, I finally got my Lime Twist Ultimate non-awd Kona today. It was a dealer swap from somewhere in California to Peoria Arizona. I picked it up at noon and put over 100 miles on it in the course of my job today (I fix computers.) I can’t tell you how much I love the color! In the bright and (way too ****) hot Phoenix sun, it is stunning. The interior with the matching Lime-colored accents is great too. Stereo sounds good and the heads-up-display is pretty trick as well. The 1.6T engine definitely makes this little car go when I need it. Looking forward to many more miles on it. I got it from Larry H. Miller Hyundai in Peoria AZ. With Hyundai $500 rebate and dealership loyalty discount of another $500 (my wife bought her Genesis g80 there) It was a pretty good deal, I think, especially for the hard to get Lime Twist color. Glad to be joining the rest of you fellow owners.

Wow, you get the 1.6T in FWD only!

I get mine end of this week, looking forward to mine as well!

Yeah, in the US there are four trim levels and you can choose either FWD or AWD with each. The downside is that the FWD version has a different rear suspension system.
I wonder how much of a difference the independent rear suspension really makes? Especially since I only drive city streets or highway that for the most part are pretty smooth. I got the fwd because the awd isn't really necessary where I live.

Having test driven both, back to back, the multi-link is perceptibly superior if you plan on throwing it around corners and taking it on non-asphalt surfaces. For sedate day-to-day driving, though, really no difference.

Good. Now I don't feel bad about not having the IRS. This is my daily driver, pavement pounder. I won't be taking it off road.
