I agree. However, technically a CUV is a hatch / glorified station wagon. It's all about positioning.

The 3 door gives them a visual / easy out on the Hatch syndrome, and a point of differentiation vs. other players.

This said - I do feel the 'hatch' syndrome is recessing in the US; Mazda 3, Ford Focus, Golf are 3 obvious players that support this. Add in that GM is making the Cruze a hatch as well further fuels this. Who knows - maybe the market IS ready for a 4-door hatch Veloster...

I very nearly got a Veloster when they came out. It's bizarre styling has only continued to grow on me. It's Hyundai's Mini Cooper and I hope they keep the Veloster a bit strange.

Judging by the i30 i seriously doubt the Veloster will keep its quirky styling for the second generation. I suspect that Hyundai is going for the VW Scirocco school of design.

If it looked like the Scirocco that would be awesome. I highly doubt that, though.

Meh...the Scirocco just looks like a flabby GTI. The Scirocco has not an iota of Scirocco DNA.

Well, at least on one side there seems to be a rear door, so it will not be directly a Scirocco. The driver side is to obsured to tell wheter it goes foe a full 4 door solution (or keeos the quirky one side only theme), in which case it could be that - at least in Europe - it is the "4 door coupe i30" hinted at in this offical preview of upcoming i30 bodystyles:

No--this is a preview of the standard i30 N, which will be based off the five-door.
