As we get past how amazing of a move Hyundai made by offering a high performing Veloster and what we're getting, I think it's important to cover its flaws. Hyundai is a great car company but rarely have we seen high performing driver focused cars. The Genesis 2.0T and 3.8 Coupes set the tone and broke through new ground. The Veloster N on the other hand, is one of many to come from this new division, so Hyundai has a lot to prove. Also, as buyers/potential buyers, this thread will help us know what we're getting into. Post negative points you find from reviews, your own experience, dealers, other enthusiasts, and so on...

The Veloster Turbo has been criticized for having poor rear seat legroom, as well as poor rear visibility. Odds are that both of those issues will still remain on the N variant, and that's going to have an impact on the practicality that this hatchback offers.

Not that much of an issue when it follows a similar recipe to the Type R and Focus RS. Often these have just the driver or maybe a front passenger. Sacrifices can be made.
There's a stronger emphasis on practicality with higher segments. Elantra GT once under the N badge will be perfect for that.

Visibility can be an issue with any hatchback, and most people interested in the Veloster wont be lugging around 3 passengers. It's odd that despite Hyundai showcasing the i30N, that the Elantra GT is only getting a N Line styling package.

I'll have to try it out for myself as these show up at dealers. Spoiler on the N seems to be right in our sight lines.

The hauling requirements for my Veloster N were as follows. It must fit my wife and my 'cello. Anything beyond that was outside of my needs and of not much concern to me. I have always loved the Miata for example, but it will not fit what I need it to haul. My Genesis Coupe got the same treatment. Must fit my 'cello and wife. That's it. People in the back seat just make the car heavier and hurt its performance. My Veloster back seat holds my briefcase and sun shield. That is what I call a useful back seat! The third door is totally awesome in my opinion too. I think the "hard plastic" interior looks just fine. I bought the car to have fun with not to stroke my "soft touch" plastics.
