Ya. I think if they put it at $150k maybe more ppl will buy lol.. hopefully not the price the SE told me..

VW Golf GTi list price is $167K...if i30N at $150K, only $17K cheaper.

I think only the performance pack is more powerful? The base i30N would be similar.

Plus if it isn't a cheaper by a large margin, i doubt anyone would bother to go for the Hyundai. Go for the tested and proven GTI.

Plus this is Singapore, so the stick shift already killed 90% of the driving population. So with limited customer base, they'd have to price it competitively against competitors.

 

How was Stinger priced against similar continental marques?

Correct. If 170+k for i30N, likely it will be a showroom piece only. The more capable civic type R, FK8 is 186k will get that over the i30N if the diff is 10k.
For i30N to be successful, it has to be below 150k. 145k might do it. But one problem is the VES is likely to be 20k and that will hurt the price some. But I would think majority of the CatB performance oriented models will be VES C2 anyway.

Let’s see.

Europe's the last bastion for the stick shift... sigh... I seriously doubt Hyundai will sell any i30N at $170K... automatic or manual... but good to have it in the showroom though... ha ha... halo product always nice to have...

If $170K, might as well buy the Stinger 2.0T.

My guess should be around 140k to max 150k. As the Stinger is priced at 165k now, bigger and slightly quicker acceleration.

In fact, I hope KM will bring in Elantra Sport Turbo 1.6, if they can priced it at 100 to 110k (same price as Tucson 1.6T with same engine and transmission), I think it will be pretty good deal as compared to Civic Turbo at 120k.

But it'll be stripped down... a bit hard to compete if priced at $110K...

Elantra Sport will give the Honda Civic 1.5 turbo some serious competition.

I hope the Elantra Sport will be sold in Singapore soon.

 

It is already for sale in Malaysia .

If really $10K below a GTI, unlikely they will see many sales. Cause 99% of the population will go for the GTI. Haha.

Civic 1.5T has a hatch version (in manual) being sold by some Parallel Importers in SG.

 

Also a very interesting proposition.

 

Take a look!

That is true. A korean hatchback with no history vs a conti brand with established history, there's really not much reason to save the 10k.

i own the elantra. albeit with stock 15" nexen tyres.

 

Unless the sport has different steering feel, i won't feel confident taking a corner at higher speed. Even turning in a carpark, i have to be more careful with how i turn the vehicle into the ramp vs my honda.

Frankly the current low powered 1.6L NA engine suits my elantra just fine cos i don't really want to take any corner in it faster than just cruising speed.

 

by all reports, the i30n and the veloster (in usa) has much more accurate steering feel.

You forgot to add VES penalty of 10k for stinger 2.0. Not sure if gti is also 10k.

The sport has a 1.6T engine and a multi-link rear suspension I suppose there is plenty of difference in stability and control [:)]
