Maybe, but for somebody with a family this would be a great way to get performance and a proper kid hauler. I am past that. I said in another post my "cargo" requirements are to fit my wife and my 'cello. For going into the office, or picking up some groceries, I really like that third back door. I would kind of like a broader "N" forum, but who knows?

Yeah I still want a Veloster N too but I'm waiting until next year to hunt for a good used one. Right now I got uncertainty with work and the covid crisis. How is the lane-change visibility in your VN?

I adjust my side mirrors outward so that lane changes are pretty easy. This is not typical. I do not monitor my rear quarter panels. I fully expect them to stay attached. I use properly adjusted side mirrors. My Gen Coupe did not have the best rearward visibility either, so I use my mirrors which I adjust outward. Having said that, I did not answer your question well, did I?

I am amazed at how poorly people are taught how to position their side mirrors.
If you can see any part of the side of your car, they're too far in. Ideally, you can see a car in your blind spot (without the blind spot mirrors like current Ford's have) without having to turn your head. When you do turn your head, you should see the nose of the car on your side out of your peripheral vision. That's when you've got them adjusted right.

Exactly Woodman. In fact, that section of my driver's side mirror designed for blind spots drives me nuts. A chunk of my mirror is useless to me. I guess people are not taught the purpose and proper adjustment of the side mirrors.

Driver education on a whole is grossly lacking. No one is taught the importance of driving on the right/passing on the left. No one is taught to leave your ego at home when driving. Being passed is not a challenge, it's not a race, and it's not your job to prevent someone from passing (happens to me often on two lane blacktops). No one is taught how to properly merge at speed. And the abject hate about roundabouts just boggles my mind. You'd rather just sit there, wasting gas, waiting on cross traffic when you can just easily merge and slip in/out of the roundabout as needed?

Elantra N looks awesome! Can’t wait to see what they’re going to drop that new 2.5l engine into down the road. The Sonata N-Aline looks cool but I want to see that 2.5l engine fully tuned in a full N model.
