Hyundai Veloster Turbo revealed

Hyundai's new Veloster gets meaner look

It puts out up to 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, all of which is routed to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. While sure to be fuel efficient, we think enthusiasts enticed by the Veloster's promise of performance will be drawn to the 201-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder.

To distinguish it from the regular Veloster on the road, the Veloster N packs an N-design fascia and grille, dedicated brake-cooling air ducts, rocker side sills, and a large rear spoiler.

Clearly nobody told Hyundai that the Detroit Auto Show 2018 was being dominated by trucks and slick luxury sedans: the South Korean company instead brought the brand new 2019 Veloster and its insane Veloster N. The regular Veloster is now available with both a regular and a turbocharged engine for those looking for more power.

The Veloster N was introduced after Hyundai showed off its freshly redesigned Veloster and Veloster Turbo models during its presentation. However, now there's also a turbocharged engine option. Buyers will have two choices of wheel packages, beginning with the base 18-inch wheel with 225-sectional Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. It comes with either a six speed manual or a seven speed dual-clutch transmission, both developed in-house by Hyundai.

N INTERIOR DESIGN On the inside, Veloster N offers exclusive N-design front cloth sport seats with performance-focused bolstering, N-design steering wheel, shift knob, N-logo door sill plates, and N-design instrument cluster.

Some electro-trickery helps to enhance the exhaust note inside the cabin, while Turbo models also get three selectable driving modes, including Normal, Sport and Smart, which tweak engine, transmission and steering feel. In N mode, this system yields an exhilarating engine over-run exhaust crackle during spirited-driving upshifts and rev-matched downshifts.

Veloster Turbo gets a quicker steering rack, with local tuning already finished on Veloster and Veloster Turbo meaning that Australian cars will get a bespoke suspension and steering set up. Roll angle is also decreased due to a shorter roll-moment arm, resulting in enhanced grip.

Outstanding cornering is further achieved via an available electronically-controlled N Corner-Carving Limited-slip Differential. The turbocharged terror is chock full of performance bits, including launch control, downshift rev-matching, and dual-mode exhaust. To keep everything under control the Veloster N has optional oversized 13.6-inch performance rotors on the front axle and 12.4-inch rotors on the rear.

As for bringing you to a halt, the Veloster N comes with 13-inch rotors up front and 11.8-inch rotors at the rear.

N COLOR Veloster N models are available in four exterior colors for the USA market: Ultra Black, Chalk White, Racing Red, and N-exclusive Performance Blue, inspired by Hyundai Motorsport. Designers have cleaned up the interior and added more style than the outgoing version, such as bright accent colors.

A pointy front-end and engaging rear-axle were goals of the local suspension team, with both Veloster variants expected to use the same tune despite differing wheel sizes (17s for Veloster and 18s for SR Turbo).
