    Haha I don't think I can go as far as hate but I think it is a step back and def see the Gremlin in the rear quarter whereas the sedan- big improvement- and I'm a hatch man too.

    Agreed w/others on the J30 or whatever the regular 4dr hatch Veloster is in other markets- pretty surprised and disappointed they didn't go that way w/ours, but still the N looks pretty fun seems they got the dynamics right(haven't driven one obviously) but reviews seem pretty impressive so far. If it was RWD I'd probably have a deposit on one already.

    My automotive lineage:
    1983 Toyota Celica GTS 5MT- aka rustback
    1984 Toyota Supra 5MT- change averse much?
    1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo 5MT- good times- newfound respect for term mid-engined oversteer!
    2002 MB C230 Coupe 6MT- 1st new car(chosen over GTI) and a good one until gremlins came
    +good house/bad driveway
    2006 Acura TL 6MT (shortest ownership by far 1year of tq steer&driveway fails>enough)
    2007 Honda CR-V AWD EX-L -not much to say boring excellence?
    2009 BMW 128i 6MT - End of the old-school bimmers probably should have kept.. wanted 4drs
    2014 Mazda CX-5 AWD GT - what can I say not so boring excellence? I continue to be impressed.
    2015 BMW X1 RWD Msport - Liked it, fast enough and still did donuts, e-steering wouldn't let me love it
    and then..?

    I had an 84 gti. That was a nice little car back in the day. First car I ever bought for myself.

    Agree, New golfs are easy on the eyes. But a bit too bland for me. About all I really like are the plaid seats.

    Can't write put my finger on what I don't like about the Golf. Besides the name that is. It looks small? The front end? The profile? I dunno.... Just not a fan...
