Not Worth 35 Grand
I own a 2016 Veloster turbo. It has a good interior, leather seats, and is pretty quick for a 201 HP hatch. What sold it was being affordable.
The Veloster N ditched the better leather seats for cloth, ripped out all details of unique design queues, and added EXTREMELY CHEAP plastics. The first edition of the N offered much better-looking wheels, with the current ones as a second choice higher trim.
So yes, they increased the HP to 275, but the price also. This is NOT A 35-THOUSAND-dollar car. Not on a good day. You can get a Challenger, Camaro, or Mustang for under 30. They completely killed it by overcharging for a car with a better engine and a TERRIBLE INTERIOR, which is why there are hundreds of used ones online for sale.
Hyundai redesigned the Elantra into a hatchet job of weird angled lines and threw in the Veloster N engine, but it will suffer the same fate.
Ford did the same crap with the Focus ST and RS, outpricing it. Now VW is doing the same with the GTI. Funny how HUGE companies don't learn. Toyota will do the same with the new GR if it is priced over 30 grand.
