    Figured this might need a thread. Debut is at the Detroit show in January. Nothing mentioned about the N model in this article but it's pretty much confirmed that we're getting it. All technical numbers should be the same as the i30 N.

    I quite like the optical camo. Probably more than the car.

    Judging by the (lack of) rear visibility, this car must have a reversing camera (or at least parking sensors) as standard, right? :p

    Curious if they're going to keep that silly 3rd door or make it a 2 door hatchback.

    Keeping the third door. That's kind of this car's "thing".

    What happened to the mid-engined Veloster?

    It never was a Veloster. It's the RM16 which I'm pretty sure is nothing more than a test bed for parts and not intended for production.

    I'd rather Hyundai give us an Elantra GT-N instead...

    How much would it cost to get one wrapped in that camo? Asking for a friend who isn't me and can totally drive.

    Not everything has to be RWD to be interesting.

    OR

    "They should have put AWD in it" - everyone on the internet and their mother.

    Glad it looks like it is borrowing a lot of styling from the i30/Elantra GT. Its a good looking car inside and out, and the 3.5-door styling is still an interesting way to go about things. I'm hoping that they can still keep a bit of personality in there, while also making it a reasonably smart buy compared to the Elantra GT.

    Still looks nothing like a 'coupe'.

    Just call it a 4-door hatchback and be done with it.

    I still never got why people say hatchbacks have 3/5 doors even though nobody in their right mind would use the boot to enter the car.

    It's an opening orifice that allows you access to the passenger compartment :)

    I could tell the rear-end was heavily influenced by the Ioniq. From what I can make out, it's a slight improvement over the last generation in the looks department.

    Very impressed. The Koreans seem to be owning the compact car market in terms of both exterior styling and performance.

    I'm really digging the N-model. It looks quite nice with the red accents and the metallic light blue/whatever that paint is.

    Also it's got a manual transmission!

    Is it fair to assume the N is going to be in the 32-35k range?
