    I think the N will be a better car.

    You mean the Veloster N or i30 N? The Veloster is a nice car but too small for me these days.

    Either. The N Veloster will come in around 3k pounds which is about 200lbs lighter than the Focus ST and has more power.

    The suspension is independent in the rear now as well and Hyundai has always had a good shifter in their cars for manuals.

    I agree with it being small, and with me having a kid in a rear facing seat now will make it a challenge.

    The N models are going to bring a lot of new awareness to the brand. Just like ST with Ford when it finally came here in the states. I'll probably go in for a test once it hits the showroom.

    Yeah, prototypes usually have lots of glitz to get people to look. If they do build it, quite a bit will change. That interior will look more like what is in the Stinger today. But as for the overall shape and style, I would buy one.
