While Hyundai has yet to officially confirm the sticker price for this next gen Veloster, its safe to assume it will be one of the most expensive car's in their lineup. Realistically it will be placed somewhere between $25 and $30k, which places it just between the Golf GTI and Golf R.

With the changes that VW has made to the GTI, its going to be more expensive to buy into for 2019. If Hyundai can undercut them, they will be well positioned to take away some market share.

You're talking about a base GTI for that kind of money. With all the issues they've been having lately in regards to emissions, I think there will be a lot of consumers in the market for a cheaper alternative.

Civic Type R's have been scooping up a lot of people from other brands. I even seen ex-Focus RS owners find their way into a Honda.

it doesn't help either that VW got caught up in a few scandals.

I found a blog in Canada that said that they released pricing in Canada and the price came in at roughly $600 less than GTI. Canada for some reason only has the 275 HP version. So I'm guessing the base model will be roughly $26 and the performance package model around $28-28,500.

Looked into that price you mentioned out of curiosity since I live in the U.S. and it'll be starting much higher which comes to no surprise, right in line with its rivals...

Expect the Veloster N at dealers soon. We've reached out to Hyundai to find out just when it will arrive and will update you when we find out.

Veloster N MT $34,999

Looks like you are right. Just saw another article on carbuzz.com that says it will be delivered prices of under $28 and under $30 for performance.

You have to admit that $30k for a 275hp hatchback is a pretty great deal. Only question is what allocations are going to be like, because I've heard only a few hundred are planned for the U.S.

Great deal but anyone serious about performance or even those that don't want to miss out, will find themselves paying for the Performance Package.
I just see the lower price point as a marketing tactic to justify spending just a bit more.

We shouldn't be surprised that allocations are so low, because this could have very easily been another Euro restricted model. The Veloster Turbo has already been doing quite well here however, so Hyundai obviously wants to see what market demand is like for something above it.

Way to undercut pricing of the Type R for all we get, even with the Sporty Package that adds greatly to the Veloster N's performance.

On that note it would be a shame if anyone skipped out on the performance package because after going through the many reviews, its a no brainier.

to be honest the VN is more of a Volkswagen GTI rival, both are underdogs in a way, the GTI not so much but how often do you see them compared to the Civic of Focus?

Its impressive what Hyundai is delivering here for sub $30k, especially for their first true performance model. With all the skepticism around VW as of late, I wouldn't be surprised if current GTI owners consider the VN for their next car.

Wondering when dealers will have any for tests drives? Keep hearing "soon" or "November/ December" but main website still shows N as "future".

I think its heavily going to vary by region, but it we haven't heard anything official yet, we'd probably be lucky to see models arriving by spring. Don't think there would be much fun in test driving during the winter anyways.

Just talked to local dealer, up here in New England. They have one on the transport truck on way to dealer. Here by Christmas.
