I’ve had my 2019 red Kona Ltd three weeks now.....VERY HAPPY!!! Traded in a manual 2014 Elantra GT for this.....couldn’t be happier! This morning I crossed 800 miles and for the first time I switched to sport mode. WHOA!!! What a difference! This thing will flat out MOVE! Plus the steering is MUCH tighter. Thought the MPG would suffer and it did: by a whopping.5 MPG....so, it’s sports mode for me from now on. Also, for those about to buy a Kona, and hesitant to get the turbo....do it! When in the sports mode, there is absolutely no lag. There is a LOT of power from the start....another thing: this car is VERY quiet inside.....I’m amazed that a car in this price range is this refined! Very little road noise, and no rattles! Can’t say enough good things! Mine is not AWD, but in GA that’s not really needed. Those of you that have a LTD already know how much fun it is to drive, especially in sport mode. Those on the fence: if you are going to buy a Kona, this is definitely the one to get!!
