Hey mentargom, welcome to forum and solid choice on the GT. Looks like you got yourself quite the little family of Hyundai's there. Have you been keeping on eye on what Hyundai has planned with the i30N? Looks like they plan on bringing the N badge to a bunch of their vehicles in the lineup.
Hatchbacks are kind of like SUVs, just closer to the ground so you don't have to worry about rolling over as often. Welcome to the forum and congrats to your wife, or you if you plan to borrow it often.
