I used 2017 i30N rear calipers on mine after finding the MX5 brakes didn’t do the job. I think they are pretty much the same as what you are discussing? They work very well, handbrake is excellent too. Work well with a 316mm vented disc.
Thanks. Are they similar to the Veloster N brakes?

Also it looks like some Nissans, e.g. Maxima and I35, have the same integrated approach with hydraulics+cable on the one caliper.

That looks like them. The casting marks are similar but not identical (mine say 8GG and 8GY), no doubt age differences. Mine have 38mm pistons, those rears look as if they do as well (38 cast into them).

Pretty sure the Veloster name is a regional variation for the same car?

I read about so many folk having problems with non OEM handbrake solutions.
