The Hyundai Veloster N Is One Mad Hot Hatch

20w ago


South Korea's latest hot hatch is the 2019 Hyundai Veloster N. Its potent 2.0L turbo packs up to 275 horsepower (base 250 HP) and 260 lb-ft of torque. The car has substantial features, especially with the performance package: electronically controlled suspension with various damping settings, an electronic limited slip differential, a variable induction system, performance summer tires developed specifically with Hyundai, and even an anti-lag system!

I drove the car on the wonderful roads of Germany, as well as on the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife. The car has an emphasis on affordable fun-to-drive, and performance allowing it to be track-ready from the factory. Currently, there is only one transmission available: a proper 6-speed manual gearbox with downshift rev-matching if you so choose to use it. The exhaust crackles with each shift as ignition timing is delayed, allowing a bit of fuel to enter the exhaust. Check out the video for full impressions!
