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!
