The Veloster Rally is cool but the upkeep on the matte paint seems like a real pain.

Looks like the Elantra's brother from another mother (the Forte) will have a late arriving 2017 turbo Sport sedan of their own.

I'm not overly impressed. I guess it's my muscle car past. The benefits these cars have is tuning in the suspensions, braking, etc. Makes it easy for the ricers to play house. I'll take a stock '86 or '87 Mustang GT with a 5 speed (200/225 HP). It might be a little squirrely in the rear end with all the torque but it was one hell of a car to drive. I could make you crap your pants in that car. Now if you want real fun, we could go for a ride in my '79 Z28 that lifts the front wheels off the ground when it launches....definitely not stock.

not to be a downer but if it's like the rest of the newer Hyundai-Kia paint jobs, it'll start coming off in about 5 years anyway.
Whereas my 2000 model the clear coat just now started peeling on the top of the front bumper cover.
