Hello, Are You The 2019 Hyundai Veloster N?

Share

Both the Veloster and Veloster Turbo come standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, but expect the optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with Hill-Start Control to be the more popular choice.

2018 Hyundai Veloster Turbo.

Veloster N was born in Namyang, Hyundai's global R&D center, and was thoroughly honed at its Nurburgring-based testing center in Germany.

The aggressive roofline-lower for 2019-and flared wheel arches still dominate the profile, while an odd third door sticks out on the passenger's side like a vestigial limb. We'll find out more when the Veloster goes on sale sometime in the second quarter of this year.

The all-new 2019 Veloster brings more power and technology to Hyundai's distinctive sporty compact. The Veloster N was introduced after Hyundai showed off its freshly redesigned Veloster and Veloster Turbo models during its presentation.

But the tweet and its follow up continued to reverberate across Washington in the hours before the vote. The passing controversy over Trump's FISA tweet is a case in point. "So do I actually".

That's the 2019 Veloster Turbo, which produces 201 HP at 6,000 rpm from its 1.6-liter 4-cylinder.

Set to arrive in Australia later this year, the second-gen Veloster will be offered in two grades: the entry-level "Veloster", which ditches the original's flaccid 1.6-litre petrol four for a 110kW/180Nm atmo 2.0-litre, and the "SR Turbo" that employs a 150kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo. The stability control system is tuned for sporty driving. Its sport exhaust will also crackle and burp ("overrun", if you're down with the lingo) during spirited driving and the aforementioned downshifts. There's a multi-mode suspension with a track-specific N mode, an available limited-slip differential and a drive mode that you can customize to meet your personal needs. Optionally, you can upgrade those to 13.6-inch performance rotors are on the front, and 12.4-inch rotors on the rear. But still, the changes are easily noticeable: we have a tweaked front bumper with air ducts for the brakes, a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser, and a bigger rear spoiler.

Every Veloster gets a standard 8.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, while available items include a Qi wireless charge pad, an Infinity audio system, and a panoramic sunroof are available.

Of course, the regular Veloster looks good too, but this performance version features its own body kit which grabs your attention at both ends and sustains it in the middle. Inside, Hyundai peppered the cockpit with "N" badging and performance-inspired design, including cloth sport seats and a redesigned sport steering wheel.

It represents the Korean automaker's first performance vehicle for the US market, according to Albert Biermann, Hyundai's present of performance development. There's also a sequential shift indicator on the dashboard to ensure you don't bang against the rev limiter.
