Welcome to the forum man, happy to have another member interested in the Kona. Really like that black and red color scheme and I think its worth waiting to see it in person.

Glad to see more people joining this forum.
Did you test drive cars that compete with the Kona? After all, there's a wide range of options such as the Renegade, CX-3, HR-V and Kicks.

I didn't test drive any at all my friend took me about 3 weeks ago to look at the Kona because he really liked it and I'm 6'8 and I sat in it and was really comfortable so I took it for a test drive and like the Styling right off the bat so last Friday I purchased one with 10 miles on it and now I'm going to start doing some customizing to it ....

Howdy, I'm about to purchase one also.....SEL,AWD,Tech package....the only thing I don't care for are the wheel choices.....do you love yours? The Ultimate wheels are far better looking. I like a nice wheel and they either make or break a car IMO. I guess I'll deal with that later.
I drove a turbo and didn't like the response, it took a second or two to kick in, but moved when it got going. I'll be happy with the 2 liter. Congrats and I might have your twin/red in my drive soon. Peace.

I like my sel awd a lot..I am going to get a ticket in it for sure as that car really scoots. I drove it to work for the first time today since picking it up Saturday and everyone thinks it is a really nice looking ride. I have no complaints..just need to get used to all the tech and the handling.

Hey Mark , I felt the same about the wheels and I'm in the process of looking for new wheels for it ! I put 1600 miles in one month on the vehicle and I just got back from a 400-mile trip last night and a car did great .. The 2 Liter did great and at 80 mph I got great gas mileage !

The dealer (Larry H Miller Hyundai in Peoria AZ) didn't have the Lime Twist Ultimate I purchased yesterday and while I wait for it to be shipped over from California, they gave me a new Thunder Gray SE-AWD model with tech package to drive as a loaner while I wait, and it is a nice car. I don't quite agree with you about the turbo driving feel, but to each their own. :grin: But the 2-liter engine is decent enough in Sport mode. I think you will definitely like it. I am 6'4" with long legs and it fits me nicely. I do, however, agree with one of the other posters that didn't like the wheels. The SEL wheels aren't near as cool looking as the ones on the Ultimate. Just my opinion, of course. Good luck and happy driving!
