Also, this video's pretty fun (though that's true for all the Throttle House reviews, IMHO):
I love me a hot hatch, but I would take this over the Veloster N any day of the week, for sure.From what I'm reading about the Elantra N, it is better than anything I ever thought Hyundai could make.
Omni GLH? 1986 or so? They made a Neon in the 90's, 00's (I think) with a crazy engine too, but I forget what it was called. They used to have rebadged Mitsubishi's as their hot hatches too - Dodge Colt Turbo?I love me a hot hatch, but I would take this over the Veloster N any day of the week, for sure.
I feel like in 30 years time this is going to be looked back on like some sort of weird performance variant on an otherwise unremarkable car that was way better than it should’ve been. (Think the Dodge Omni GLHS, hahaha.)
If you want the added storage/practicality of a hatch, that narrows the field quite a bit, and the Elantra N is particularly egregious with the cross bracing behind the seats, even folded down. Absolutely a plus in the Integra column.It sounds like a great drive and 276 HP with 6MT or DCT is very appealing. But I really dislike Hyundai’s exterior design language as of late, and I’d want a 5-door.
Oooooh, was it the SRT-4 from the early aughts? That's a great call! Most people might simply go "ugh, a Neon" (and maybe they'd be mostly right), but folks in the know understand that car had the goods, especially for its time.Omni GLH? 1986 or so?

The pops and bangs can all be turned off, even in the custom N mode setting, which is cool. There's a dealership up in Prescott (about three hours north of me) that has one in ceramic white, but they've got a $3,800 markup in addition to (optional) add-ons. Sure wish it was closer to at least test drive; no one in Tucson has one.The pops and bangs sound super fun, but I wonder if that would get old in a short amount of time, and as much as I wish I was solely concerned with the driving experience,
