      Trims are bad. You can't avoid LED or leather seats and just get electric seats. Also no memory option on electric seats.

      @Autogefühl I want to have electric seats and no damn leather of any kind. Also I don't want LED or any toy electronics.

      Best looking car in its category. Too bad it has terrible engine choices. With a 1.0 engine I am deported to the climbing lane on highways and the 1.6 automatic is way too expensive. Why could not they make 1.6 manual is a mystery for me!

      Of course it can, yeah. It is just that you have more power with more displacement. What's the price difference for you?

      Hi @Autogefühl. Thomas, at 8:18 minutes you say that the 2019 Kona has Cruise Control, but from looking at the specs, it appears that Only the EV version has it, not the ICE version. Would you be able to confirm that for us? What do you personally think about such an odd omission? Have you seen that in other vehicles lately? To me, that’s a big con if one drives long distances. What do you think?

      Autogefühl thanks, Thomas! You are correct. I called Hyundai and they realized that the spec brochure of the Kona mistakenly omitted Cruise Control from the list. They couldn’t tell me whether it was or adaptive or not, but the guy I spoke with thought it was. They thanked me for letting them know that their brochure missed that spec. Thank you so much for your time to respond. 👌🏼

      pretty sure it had cruise control. Maybe the difference is that only the EV has the _adaptive_ cruise control ?

      Thomas, in English we don't say "how it looks like". "like" goes only with "what". So you can say either "how it looks" or "what it looks like".

      What an excellent review on on a stylish suv. Love the red and black. Apple car Play great. The fist time I played eyes on the Kona great second car so I can keep the mileage down on the Mercedes. Thanks again Thomas. Nip or two of German stien when I come to Aus.

      Just stumbled upon Autogefuhl. Fantastic review. I do like the fact that the same route seem to be used, which gives the viewer some confidence that fair comparisons are being made. Keep up the good work.

      Interesting comments about the Kia Stonic, Thomas. I think the Stonic looks a lot better but it sound slike it isnt as good to drive. Also good to see a mid range vehicle tested rather than the most expensive top of the range. The handbrake looks a bit cheap though and maybe could do with a touch of leatherette? Agree about 3 cylinder engines seem to have a more throaty roar than some 4 cylinder models!

      Went to the showroom but came back empty handed. Any trim below ultimate is useless as the exterior black plastic is too big for the car. Front Seats are too short compared to North American cars which I have owned for 30+ years now. HUD only useful on Ultimate as it shows speed + GPS directions. Didn’t do a road test as I found the front seats too short and it hurt my knees (arthrosis) just by sitting in the showroom. Did they design this car for hobbits?

      I have tested this 1.0L turbo version in France with Edition #1 trim level. It was packed with good features. But the best part was the driving experience, i felt the same as you while driving it. Spacewise I agree with you at the back a few centimetres more would have been welcomed (I'm 1m84 tall) After the road test, I've been asked how I felt with the dealer. I loudly replied back at her in French: GENIAL! (Amazing!). After that I tried a Jeep Renegade, I loved the look, I couldn't wait for this test... I hated the driving feel, felt awful. So I bought the Kona, after one month wait it will be delivered to me in 4 days. I'm so excited I'm gonna die! Lol. Love your reviews, keep up the good job! Cheers!

      Hello, after you are driving the car for a couple of months , if I'm not wrong, what are your thoughts so far? Because I'm thinking of buying 1.0L turbo premium trim level. Is the horsepower enough for driving in the highway? Does it behave well?
