Hyundai has introduced its high-performance Veloster N model. Veloster N represents Hyundai’s highest performance vehicle ever for the U.S. market and will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018. Veloster N was born in Namyang, Hyundai’s global R&D center, and was thoroughly honed at its Nurburgring-based testing center in Germany.

“Veloster N takes Hyundai to a new level of purchase consideration for true driving enthusiasts in the U.S. market,” said Albert Biermann, president and head of Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division, Hyundai Motor Group. “The Veloster N is another example of Hyundai Motor's capabilities, creating an exciting sports car with thrilling dynamics combined with a compelling affordability equation as key to the N high-performance concept.”

From the outside, Veloster N carries an exclusive N-design front fascia and grille with dedicated front air ducts for enhanced brake cooling. LED headlamps add a tech-focused design detail to the front visage as well. In profile, N-design rocker side sills and available lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels with a machined-finish dual-spoke star design clearly differentiate the N model from other Veloster models. Standard are 225/40R18 Michelin Pilot SuperSport summer tires for the 18-inch wheel design and exclusive-compound 235/35R19 Pirelli P-Zero summer tires for the available 19-inch alloy wheel. The rear of the Veloster N sports a larger N-design rear spoiler, rear fascia design with integrated diffuser, and performance-diameter, high-flow dual exhaust. LED tail lamps further accentuate the rear view lighting signature with a tech-oriented ambience.

Veloster N models are available in four exterior colors for the U.S. market: Ultra Black, Chalk White, Racing Red, and N-exclusive Performance Blue, inspired by Hyundai Motorsport. Interior combinations are black with unique molding accent colors tailored to the exterior combination.

On the inside there are front cloth sport seats have performance-focused bolstering, N-design steering wheel, shift knob, N-logo door sill plates, and N-design electroluminescent instrument cluster. Interior details are accented by an N performance blue accent theme. As engine speed approaches redline, the N-design center cluster displays a progressive sequential shift indicator, alerting the driver of an impending shift point for maximum acceleration. N-brand metallic door sill scuff plates greet the driver as they approach the driver seat.

Veloster N offers a larger 2.0-liter, direct-injected turbocharged powerplant over the Veloster Turbo. When equipped with the optional performance package, the engine boasts an available 275 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque from 1,450-4,700 rpm. The standard Veloster N powertrain produces 250 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque from 1,450-4,000 rpm. The turbo system intercooler is isolated from the condenser and radiator for even more efficient cooling of the intake charge. The system also benefits from a two-stage induction system for maximum output at all rpm ranges. The engine compression ratio is 9.5:1, high for a turbocharged engine. The high performance engine is backed up by a close-ratio, short-throw six-speed manual transmission with downshift rev-matching capability. The transmission uses carbon-coated synchro rings and gear material reinforcement for smoother operation and lower overall shift force coupled with a positive engagement feel. The Veloster N clutch also utilizes a double-layer facing clutch disc design for increased burst strength and torque capability. In addition, the powertrain sports a multi-mode, high-flow active sport exhaust system with a variable exhaust actuator. In N mode, this system yields an engine over-run exhaust crackle during upshifts and rev-matched downshifts. This is achieved, in part, via retardation of ignition timing specifically during throttle tip-out during sporty driving. This advanced exhaust system is further augmented with an Electronic Sound Generator that enhances the natural powertrain sound for an even sportier driving resonance between the engine and the driver. Fuel economy for the Veloster N is an estimated 22 city, 28 highway and 25 combined.

Torque from the turbocharged powertrain is driven to the tarmac by an N Power Sense Axle design. Veloster N’s Power Sense Axle geometry features a zero-scrub radius for more precise steering, quicker response, and a direct on-center feel, with increased steering linearity. The geometry is further optimized for linear torque build up and corner-exit precision. Roll angle is also decreased due to a shorter roll-moment arm, resulting in enhanced grip. The motor-driven power steering system is rack-mounted and secured at three locations for reduced flex and more direct handling, especially during high-performance driving.
