2019 Veloster N

Drove an N yesterday. My GF is seriously considering one. They only had one on the showroom floor and had to drop the glass doors to pull it out. LOL.

Default 2019 Veloster N

Drove an N yesterday. My GF is seriously considering one. They only had one on the showroom floor and had to drop the glass doors to pull it out. LOL. It was NOT the one with the performance package (didnt have any yet) but this car is AMAZING for the price point.

I really wish the automakers would go back to making hot hatches for people who have eyes.

Good for her!
Curious if the Civic R is also of interest, or just the Veloster N.

I think that Hyundai did well with this car, and it was a bold move of them to throw the gauntlet down at all.

Shes had a love affair with the Veloster for years, well before we even met and now that the N is out and her car is paid off shes really digging it. I have a typo in my first post it was NOT the performance package one, the one with 25 more ponies and different tires, wheels etc. They get three of those in 3 months, so shell drive it when they come in and probably go home in a 370Z. lol

You can’t out run ugly. Have you done your research on this vehicle before your girlfriend purchases? Having purchased a 2013 Hyundai Azera and 2014 Hyundai Elantra they were two of the most unreliable vehicles I have ever owned. The “America’s best warranty” I found is the worst warranty of any auto maker I have ever seen. As there are parts you will have to replaced from your own dime as they as not covered under Hyundai’s “America’s best warranty” and parts that are well known to fail are not covered after talking to a Hyundai technician. With the 2013 Hyundai Azera we had I experienced transmission failure at only 30K and had to replace a power steering pump at only 20K miles plus other sensors. When I sold the 2013 Hyundai Azera and 2014 Hyundai Elantra we had they were practically worthless. Hyundai vehicles have the worst resale value on the market over the first five years right next to Kia. Not to mention the paint defects that the 2013 Hyundai Azera had. You should look into other vehicles for your girlfriend to purchase.

Other comparable vehicles are the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro and the 2019 Ford Mustang.

I just watched a review on that vehicle. I actually almost got a Veloster Turbo lol. I personally like them. That new iteration is a pretty solid contender. Sure looks better than that new Civic type R...imho

Yeah, haters gonna hate. Especially on Hyundai, and especially on Veloster.

Anecdotal experiences aside, there are lots of reports on new vehicle reliability that put the Korean twins in the top 10. The problem is that most of those look at the number of customer complaints per thousand cars sold. And they relate to a region (and often, cars are made for a region, even at different assembly plants with different parts and some suppliers). They don't weigh 99 fit-and-finish defects any differently from 99 bad engines. In other words, they aren't perfect either, but most sure seem to shine a good light on the Koreans.

Camaro and Mustang have issues too. Not that they are bad cars, though. Focus RS, which is more in line with the Veloster N, has certainly had its share of nightmares.

Keep in mind, it has a 5 year, 60,000 mile powertrain warranty (with roadside assistance).
If she is pining for a Veloster, then by all reports the "N" is the one to get if you can justify the $.
Or a 370Z!!! ;-)

Yep, so much Vehicular Hate these days!

My experience with the Kia warranty was great... my mother's Kia Optima that is. She had a couple of little issues over the period she owned that car and Kia fixed them no problem. Just sayin...

Its EASILY the best handling, quickest FRD car Ive ever driven. I ragged on it a bit, of course some push in the turns but it corners like an ape. And QUICK!!! Barely any wheel hop at all on WOT from stop. Really responsive, you know exactly what the tires are doing and the seats...WOW!!
