Buying A 2012 Veloster To Replace The Focus.

well the RX-8 didn't work out (gas mileage) I set my heart on the 2012 Hyundai Veloster. i know im buying the enemy...but when i drove the car my heart needed to have it. very quick car for a 1.6 4cyl. 38mpg...and its a head turner..on the test drive a man in a mini cooper pretty much broke his neck to look at this thing..







the focus is great car but i feel its time to move on.

Rear doors look like made to fit a chipmunk. Pretty small for anything bigger than a breadbox. And that hatch is right up against that back seat.
So who is supposed to FIT into that back seat. Any kid bigger than a two year old is out. and the luggage space in what? two cubic feet?
Otherwise it does look pretty.
(my being partial to yellow and all.)

Rear blind spot from hell. From the front doors forward not bad.

Test drove the 2012 sedan. Didn't like it. I'm not paying 21k for a SE.

Nothing against the 2012 focus. But the price is why I'm not even considering the focus. The veloster is 19 k and has a nice bunch of standard features like a 7 inch touch screen radio, bluelink (Hyundai's version of OnStar) satellite radio standard.
