i35 vs i50 noise isolation

I drove an i35 and the insulation was good, I was happy with the very little noise coming inside the cabinet from the engine. I didn't get the chance to drive i50 and I'm curious if I order the i50 if the noise would bother me if the noise is higher inside the cabin compared to i35. I like the more powerful engine but I would not give up on the comfort (quieter cabin) for it. So for any of you who had the chance to drive an i50 or own i50 I would appreciate if you can share your thoughts. Also does the car feel too jumpy? I drove a Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland V8 once and it was too jumpy. Thanks in advance.

I think the cabin insulation is a matter of hearing it in person. The Jumpy feeling can be ruled out if you option the suspension tech properly.

V8 is signifcantly louder. More of a rumble. Some may like, others not. Personally I found it intrusive. But torque is nice. Overall, i like the 35 for the mix of speed, smoothness and efficiency
