I can't get over the fact that they place electric adjustable seats in the kona but they don't include a memory function... what's the point of electric adjustable seats when one doesn't have a memory function?

Is this something that can be placed aftermarket?

Remember everything costs additional money. This is one reason the Kona Ultimate doesn't have a electrically adjustable passenger seat either. Keep in mind the Kona is a lower priced SUV. Price point was one of the strategies Hyundai was after also. That I know of, there is no aftermarket accessory to set the memory for the drivers seat.

My Genesis has the features but not on the Kona and that's fine with me.

My seats are both electrically adjustable
In the standard, limited and the ultimate there is no electric passenger seat. It's manual only. So I don't know what you're driving but it isn't a Kona.:wink::grin:

Well unless it's a European Model maybe. US models have a non-electrically powered manual passenger seat.

Yea but it's overrated. :grin::wink: Been there done that over our 20+ year military careers.:wink: I'm not concerned about weather or not you have them, it wasn't a factor in my purchase after all. However in the US their isn't such an option.:wink:

At the Hyundai inporter here are a number of idiots... at the time of the release of the Kona here, there was only 1 version with an automatic clutch... the 1.6t AWD with all the bells and whistles... until i found out (after we signed for purchase) that this "top version" lacked the cooled seats and we couldn't have the sunroof... there were no options at that time. Now some 6 months later one can have the sunroof and the cooled seats as an option... idiots... we would've definetly chose this. From the beginning all this was available in our neighbouring country, some 40km from where we live... grrr

It is what it is, patients pays off. A lack there of, can mean not realizing everything that can be gained.

I hear ya Den. Watching Bjorn Nyland's Oslo Norway youtube vids made me salavate at the thought of a powered passenger seat for the Kona EV that I just bought. Crazy here in the U.S. of course, the top of the line EV ultimate does not come with it but does have the cooled seats (very nice in the hot summer) and the sun roof. I'd trade the sun roof out in a heartbeat for the powered pasenger seat (personal preference is all). It's like studies must show folks in the U.S. prefer sun roofs to powered passenger seats. Business of course. I was after all buying in the first EV wave just released in California.

They also did the same thing for the highest end 2011 Tucson. No powered front passenger seat :(
