      Go test drive Veloster N. Report back.

      So curious if others feel this is the car R&T said it was.

      I was really impressed, but I won't say anymore for now.

      How do you keep from vomiting uncontrollably as you walk up to it? Blinders? Night drives only?

      more vomit = less food in the driver.
      less food = less weight
      less weight = more speed.

      I've driven one and I was quite impressed with how it drove. Steering felt great and really tight, the car would rotate when you wanted it to., the shifter was nice and precise, the engine and exhaust sounded great. I know the styling is subjective, but I thought it looked really good in person, especially the rear diffuser and exhaust. I WANTED to love it, but as silly as it sounds, I couldn't get over the low-rent interior. If it was simply going to be a toy/track car I wouldn't care, but I spend a lot of time in my car and do a a few big road trips every year and having a nice-ish interior is a big deal to me. I've got zero problems with the layout, it's all functional, it's the materials that are terrible. There are zero soft touch surfaces in the car aside from the leather wrapped wheel and shift knob. Everything you can touch is cheap, hard, shiny plastic. Even the cloth on the seats was cheap looking and feeling. I went in with the car pretty high on my list and would have strongly considered it if the deal was right, but the interior just turned me off. Dynamically it was everything I had hoped for, but as much as I wanted to get over it I couldn't live with that interior on a daily basis.

      Did the Hyundai dealer run your credit report first, just to make sure you're a serious buyer.

      I would, but the nearest Hyundai dealership is over two hours away.

      That, and they don't have any N's in stock.

      The HVN is quite tame by comparison.

      The CTR is a below-average looking shape covered in ricey garbage.

      The VN is a terrible looking shape slightly toughened up.


      They are both hideous. I would buy neither.

      I guess this sums up.

      It looks super fun with the perf pack/LSD -- but I don't particularly care for the styling, I don't think it will hold up for 10+ years like a Type R will and the suspension looks a little too firm/jittery/bouncy for the type of roads we have here.

      I sat in it at the auto show and the N interior had me feeling like sitting in a Lancer/EVO back in 2006.

      I'm still mad they're sticking with the stupid 2 doors on one side and one door on the other bull****. I'd like it so much more if it was a 3 door or 5 door.
