I see that the Gulf-ish colors continue. Nice.

I thought that color looked great in photos. I hate it in person.

If everyone is interested, I can grab the spec sheet and drop a few photos from the release.

I don't like the styling on the back end, it should look more like this:

Other than that, if it came in a nice Q-ship grey color it would be pretty awesome.

Just so you know, you are now my 2nd favorite editor. 

EDIT: Those have to be the best looking seats Hyundai has ever installed in a sedan.

In hopes that Hyundai occasionally searches the internet for Hyundai N chatter:. As the current owner of a Elantra GT PLEASE make the i30N a thing in America.  I will buy one.  You have 1 sale on lock.  

 

That said this is a Hot Sedan.  I will test drive one if one ever shows up local and may be unable to resist.

And the i20N. I mean this is amazing but I want that smaller car

i30 vs. i20 on the track

I would also love an i30 over the Veloster and an i20 over the i30.  But I like the way that Hyundai is moving.  The Kona N is the one that kinda excites me right now.

If I could afford this, I could use it as a fun sporty daily driver and occasional autocross or track machine. If I get the DCT, my family could drive it and I could still enjoy shifting thanks to the flappy paddles. It could theoretically replace 2-3 of our current cars. My mom likes Hyundais.

Probably can't afford it, but it's appealing.

360mm brake rotors!!!

Conspicuously absent is a curb weight.  Or even a kerb weight.

Is no one else bothered by the strange Zorro slash Z-ish things killing the body lines of the doors?

Given that the DCT 0-60 is what, 0.2 seconds slower than the Veloster N with a manual, I'm guessing it's a decent amount heavier.

I am. I don't dislike the overall shape, but there were too many attempts to make it unique, and not enough to make it attractive. It's too busy. They should have stopped styling it sooner, rather than just adding more.

The civic is "over styled ". This is really pretty attractive. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you're wrong cheeky

That's eleven minutes of Bobzilla porn right there!  There's even some video of a  Tiburon on track, 

I think they errored in casting the young kid. He should have been a red headed kid from Indiana.

Notice the drawing/outline/sketch of the car they show throughout this video. In that sketch they show the car only with a prominent upper body line and they do not include the z-lines.  That looks nice.
