I haven't seen a Hyundai commercial online in forever.
It may be tied to what your googling.
They know you are cheap and all cars regardless of quality dissolve in a decade.. so there is that.
But seriously, this Veloster N driving goodness really caught me by surprise.
Granted, I haven't been reading everything related as all the Korean brands' four cylinder turbo vehicles previously just seem like a power bump without being a more serious driving performance package.
I just hope that this car sells well because.. well.. then other brands might realize having a product in that niche is actually a good thing (from a youth marketing standpoint).
But I doubt it will sell any better than other mainstream 30+k hatchbacks.
"Who told you that there is no true, faithful, eternal love in this world?! May the liar's vile tongue be cut out!"
I haven't driven the N, but I did drive the Turbo Ultimate when it first came out with the new model. I actually enjoyed that one more than I thought I would, and told the salesperson that I really was waiting on the N. I went to look at an Elantra GT N-Line a little while back, since it's a bit nicer inside and would be better suited for the kids in the back. I expected it to be about as good as the Veloster. Nope. Despite being similar, the car just didn't do it for me. I can totally believe that I'd love the N.
Challenge accepted, I bought one. Commence picture whoring:
If I was still doing my daily 84-mile roundtrip commute, this car would suck.
