    Cool read.

    There was a post on here just last week, where someone was looking into getting the scoop and associated parts for an R and putting it on their non-R. In the thread, people were thinking parts were to direct any water away from the engine but they couldn't figure out why it would route the "draining water" to the strut towers.

    Per that article, "hood scoop—which, fun fact, cools the computers that run the Type R’s electronic adaptive suspension, not the engine".

    Mystery solved! :D

    Only reason it won was the Veloster type N is not in the review.

    I’m buying one just to stick it to my local Honda Dealers...

    Type R Killah!:headbang::dance:

    But congrats to beat a 50k suped up STi with actual carbon fiber and prepped for the track is very impressive.

    Yeah, I highly doubt that.

    It’s clearly there just look. No type N in the Review.

    Did you even read he article?

    Hm, interesting statement. The Veloster isn't even in the same class as the cars in this review. With 275 Hyundai HP has a lot of catch up to do.

    I don’t know if your being sarcastic or not but that’s pretty close to all the other HPs respectively.

    It’s also gonna way way less then all of those cars.

    Ever heard of power to weight ratio?

    The only car that would outclass it would be the Subaru which has been tuned and tweaked for ultimate performance. I mean it has a Carbon fiber Roof...

    Or maybe you are just saying because it’s from The Korean Peninsula.

    This car has the power to reunite North and South Korea. You heard it here first,

    Ahn Young Haseyo!

    Let's see some comparos first. Hyundai doesn't have a great record when it comes to sporty cars.
    Hope it's not built on the Elantra platform. That car doesn't handle well.
    Also, their HP claims have been wrong more than once in the past.

    It may reunite Korea all right but it won't hold a candle to the Type R.

    I haven’t driven either so I can’t tell for certain. But if they do right it will sell very well. Especially if they can undercut the CTR MSRP by a few thousand dollars. Not to mention ADM. Honda really lost a lot of potential buyers by giving dealers so much control on pricing the CTR.

    It’s a great car, but for 5-10k over its MSRP there are far better and faster options on the road.

    The Elantra sport actually handles pretty well compared to the hatch. I've driven the Sport Hatch, and we own a Sedan Civic; It handles better than both of those. Idk about the Si, I haven't driven that yet. I imagine that it is close, but not quite there, which is also what the reviewers are saying. But the steering in the Elantra sport is pretty weak, and effortless. That appeals to some people. But let's wait until someone drives the N with these other cars to see if it belongs or if it gets out classed.

    Drove the Elantra GT. At first seemed to handle better because of the stiffer suspension but then I noticed how wonky the rear was behaving.
    There was an unexpected wobble in mid corner and a "straightening up" just after exiting, kinda out of sinc with the rest of the car.
    This was very disappointing because it is the sportiest offering in the Elantra line.

    @A2typeR

    It's gonna way way less? Oh, you mean weigh less? Oh, I didn't know that was a determining factor. :nono:

    What's a Type N? It's called Veloster N.

    and yes, I read THE article. The car isn't released yet so of course its not in the review.

    Nah, think it was meant "way less of a car".
