Reliable, comfortable subcompact for cold winters
We are 65+yo needing specific body design to easiliy get in/out of car, able to see well out of car, seats that don't leave you in arthritis agony, etc. We drive in rural Great Lakes with bad weather and roads. We occasionally need to haul loads of things like animal feed, garden plants, lumber, etc. Fixed income means economy & value matter, too. This is our 3rd (new) Hyundai; all have been good fits and reliable. The Kona is the smallest model we've had, but the cockpit doesn't feel cramped and the seats are plenty comfy for long drives. (we reluctantly gave up on a 2017 Subaru Forester because of seats too cramp-inducing on long trips) Got the Turbo engine and glad we did. Handles great, brakes exceptionally well. We did our research on the 2022 Kona, most of it was spot-on, and it was a good match for us. Good longstanding relationship with dealer/salesman doesn't hurt, either.
