I hate to say this but I think this will be to the market what the Civic "WAS" back in the day. I don't care about "B Series" this, "H Series" that, this car is RWD and with so many younger peeps wanting to get into the sport of drifting, this will probably be the car that takes them there, Hyundai or not.
This car company has come a long way (though I will stick with Honda) and has really moved up in JD Power rankings. I already see many of these cars getting totaled by uneducated drivers, thus making insurance premiums for this car quite high.
Honda will be wise to stick with the FWD platform. Seeing the S2K pass along is sad, but a very wise move on Honda's part on a very slow selling car. Maybe the replacement will be RWD but only time will tell.
