I made the switch a couple weeks ago and I haven't looked back. I have had three GTI's and was in the market for a 2022 GTI . As I was getting close to making the purchase I saw a Kona N at a stoplight and I had to test one out for myself. I fell in love with the style and after the test drive I was sold. It really wasn't a competition between the two and I easily parted ways with the GTI. This fits all my needs as a daily driver while being exciting to drive at the same time. Excited to see what Hyundai has planned for years to come.
