I wish Hyundai would bring the i30N to the US

Hyundai needs to bring the i30N to the US. Looks so much better than the velostar. So far the reviews have been pretty positive.

Hyundai needs a new Genesis Coupe and to let Biermann free on that. Enough pulling, let's get on with the pushing.

I think its a great effort. I like the way it looks. I do hope people get them and they continue to make great cars. However, I just don't see myself in one any time soon.

I driven i30n. Lovely car but I dont see how its better than the new Fiesta ST mk8. Being faster doesnt mean better.

As long as its not pushing for the cushion like typical for carmakers these days. Enough fat heavy pigs with too much power to be usable.

Agreed. One of the only new cars I'm interested in. Don't care for the Veloster.

Meanwhile I really like it. It's not matte, so that's already better than many recent trends.

Same. And way better than those silly trendy grey/white shades people keep releasing...

Let's ignore that my last four cars have been white or silver. The one before that was Imola Red. Of course that's also the last BMW I've owned.

I mean all things considered... at least for quality purposes; I'd stil probably take a GTI and maybe throw a basic stg1 tune on it.

It would still probably have a much better gearbox, higher quality build (fit and finish) and probably resale value.

Agree that it looks like a Golf. I kind of like the Velostar, but I've always liked ugly cars (heck, I drive a 1-series, not exactly a looker).

Cars with character are ALWAYS cooler than cars without. Like you I've always preferred more unorthodox designs however for me the Veloster tries a bit too hard. It's too deliberate of an attempt to be weird. It's better when designs are just naturally awkward lol

Exactly what I did. Considered waiting to drive one, but sat in the regular one and immediately knew the GTI with a tune was just going to be a better car. Factor in the APR tune and a real clutch and the VW is still a good bit cheaper.
